Browse through Kid Koala's silent comic strips and you'll find a five-panel illustration of a scratch so complex, the DJ loses his lunch and limbs on the decks. Nimble fingers understate Koala's ability to disjoin his appendages; on his first solo release since 2000's classic "Carpal Tunnel Syndrome," he effortlessly blends ragtime to bass music. Primitive when compared to the digital perfection Ninja Tune's downtempo pack is known for, it's nonetheless a triumph of DJ versus machine.
