DIY-DJ: The CD that comes with its own flatpack turntable


Make-your-own: After assembling the turntable the disc is spun by hand with a sewing pin as a needle

In an industry where everything has gone digital, one artist decided to really go retro by including a cardboard miniature turntable which fans have to put together themselves before they can spin a tune.
A sewing pin acts like the needle and DIY-DJs fill the room with sweet song through a paper gramophone.
The latest album by Canadian DJ Kid Koala encourages fans to find their inner child with the toy-like creation which folds up to play a special disc coming along with the CD.

Kid Koala’s album, 12 bit blues, aims to take the music business back to basics - quite literally - encouraging fans to truly appreciate and engage with the music they are listening to.
The fold-up cardboard kit comes complete with pin and gramophone as well as an instruction video showing the player in action.
The man behind the moniker, Eric San, writes on his website how his childhood dream was to have an E-mu SP-1200 sampler, but after working out that it would take an astronomical number of paper rounds (and around eight million newspapers delivered) he gave up on his dream.

Return-to-Kid: The Canadian DJ hopes that the turntable-set will help his fans rediscover their inner child

Now in his thirties, Mr San hopes to give his fans the machine he always desired, even thought it is made of paper.
For 12 Bit Blues, Mr San spent three days he cutting and reassembling the bed tracks using the pads on the machine and a multitrack.
Each part of the songs was recorded in real time in order to achieve a raw sound like the old-school blues it draws inspiration from.
