Beatmaster Kid Koala wrote the music for a video game called Floor Kids, and plans to take everything on the road for your live viewing pleasure! His shows aren’t so much concerts as they are over-caffeinated parties, featuring dancers, monsters, robots, and Floor Kids arcade games. You won’t want to miss when he rolls through your city.

Recently, visionary scratch DJ and producer Kid Koala (aka Eric San) shared a new single titled “Big Trouble In Little Battle.” Pulled from his upcoming Floor Kids Original Video Game Soundtrack set for release on April 27th via Arts & Crafts, the song offers another taste of the 42-track soundtrack, featuring 71 minutes of original instrumental hip-hop and break music from the award-winning video game, Floor Kids.
Kid Koala will hit the road for his Vinyl Vaudeville: Floor Kids Edition tour on April 26th, a special expanded version of his road-tested variety show, complete with dancers, brass playing ants, 6 foot MPCs, 9 foot ogres, 20 foot spiders, robots, and more. The tour will also bring a traveling arcade of custom Floor Kids game consoles, so fans can battle their friends before the show even starts.
Floor Kids is an original concept by award-winning animator bboy JonJon and Kid Koala himself, capturing the essence of what makes “breaking” an artform unlike any other. Adding another dimension to the universe of multimedia projects San has created over a twenty-year career, Kid Koala scores this journey across every era of the break, from silky ‘70s funk, to thumping ‘80s 808s, granular ‘90s 12bit hip-hop, and 00’s synth funk.
