Kid Koala + Amon Tobin + Triosk @ Factory Theatre warehouse (Sydney)


KID KOALA (Ninja Tune)
AMON TOBIN (Ninja Tune)
TRIOSK (Leaf Label)

8pm start


Kid Koala, everyone's favourite turntabilist brings his all new 4
deck show on the back of a 5th album (Your Mom's Favourite DJ)
recently released on Ninja Tune. After the release of his first album
on Ninja Tune way way back, Kid Koala toured extensively as a member
of groups such as Deltron 3030, Lovage, Bullfrog and also as the
opening act for international recording artists Radiohead. Since then
he has toured Australia in 2004 with RJD2 and then with his Short
Attention Span Theater Show in 2005. This time around he returns to
perform a whole new set of routines, tricks, and incredible turntable
acrobatics - all the while rocking the crowd like no other DJ.

Travelling with Kid Koala and performing on the same night is Amon
Tobin, the legendary Ninja Tune drum & bass and abstract breaks
producer. With a staggering 7 albums for Ninja Tune since the mid
1990s, Amon Tobin has been chopping up sounds as he says "like
regular chickens". Currently working on soundtracks for video games
and a new album for Ninja Tune, Amon Tobin's last Australian' tour
was captured and released as a Solid Steel session and featured an
incredible mashing of genres, sounds and styles.

Joining Kid Koala and Amon Tobin as local support is the acclaimed
trio Triosk who have released albums for Berlin's ~scape label as
well as two for UK label Leaf Records. Featuring Laurence Pike
(Drums), Adrian Klumpes (Piano/Keyboards) and Ben Waples (Double/
Electric Bass) are three improvisers who came together searching for
something beyond the conventions of the jazz trio. They continue to
look for new ways to combine the sound and unity of purpose of a
great piano trio with the textures and processes of minimalism and
electronic music. Their third album, The Headlight Serenade is a a
masterpiece of underwater electronic jazz.

The venue is a new warehouse-meets-the-metro style room just near the
Vic On The Park on the border of Marrickville and Enmore. It is well
served by buses and there is stacks of parking.
