Scratch DJ and multi talented artist Kid Koala is releasing a second volume of his ambient/vocal Music To Draw To series, subtitled “Io” (inspired by the Greek myth) and out January 25 via Arts and Crafts. Like the first volume, the ethereal vibes were purposeful to, as the title suggests, allow room for the listeners’ own creativity. Where the original Music To Draw To featured Emiliana Torríni, on this one he’s collaborated with Trixie Whitley who features on six tracks on the LP. Kid says:

Trixie Whitley is a phenomenon, truly a force of nature. She’s able to dive down and channel something truly profound and personal. I’ve witnessed her in that zone on stage but didn’t know what would happen in the studio, especially over this type of musical backdrop. We spoke briefly about the narrative of the album before recording. She was able to make each of the song’s characters her own, giving them a voice to a level that surpassed anything I could have ever imagined. Her singing can be sweet and nurturing, bold and powerful, or chilling and sinister, but it’s always Trixie Whitley. The emotional range she achieves on these tracks is just awe inspiring to me.

You can preorder Music To Draw To: Io now and you can listen to the beautiful “All For You,” one of the collaborations with Whitley, below.

Earlier this year, Kid Koala released the soundtrack to the Floor Kids videogame. He’s got a few live dates in 2019, including a residency in San Francisco based around his Nufonia Must Fall graphic novel, and Satellite Turntable Orchestra shows in St. Catharines, Canada. All dates are listed below.
