A little late I know after early two weeks into the new year, but I’m back in the swing of things and have some new music for you all to enjoy.
Kid Koala has long been a favourite of mine, with his Your Mom’s Favorite DJ EP one of my most loved records back in 2006, but his latest cut with Trixie Whitley is a long way away from that upbeat storytelling and jazz-infused hip hop scratches. Now, the Montréal-based turntablist and producer has made something much dark and more ominous with ‘Hera’s Song’.
Taking its title from the “malevolent and all-powerful” Queen of the Gods in Greek mythology the track is menacing and talks of seething rage and revenge, with the Whitley singing she “won’t sleep until you’re ruined too”. A soundtrack to the mistrust and animus of our times.
