From jazzy scratch turntablism and ear-deafening electro breakdowns to contemporary fashion and articulate androids, Yabai features four of the most influential Asian North American artists in the scene today. They include Canadian marsupial turntablist Kid Koala (aka Eric San), born and raised in Vancouver and now based in Montreal as well as Vancouver fashion designer Natalie Purschwitz (Hunt & Gather). They join California artists Eric Nakamura, publisher of Giant Robot magazine, and Dim Mak DJ Steve Aoki to share their stories of becoming definitive figures in Asian North American art and culture.
