What do you get when you throw the ex-rhythm section of Wolfmother, DJs Kid Koala and Dynamite D, six turntables, a beastly synth and a library of classic rock chopped and cut into vinyl on one stage? Short answer: The Slew. Longer answer: a turntablist's rock-and-roll wet dream.
Screw whoever said DJs are failed musicians. Kid Koala and Dynamite D have both technical ability with their instrument of choice and a powerful stage presence, commanding audiences with sheer energy. This is 70s stadium rock scratched live over wailing bass lines and repurposed sound clips, with live drums and unnatural turntable talent on display. In fact, that's what makes these guys so fun to watch- they're the one band I know of that make watching dudes on turntables entertaining, because these turntablists move. (Bassist Chris Ross rocks out hard as well, and drummer Myles Heskett gets equally sweaty.)
