KID 606

(USA)

It has become virtually impossible in the last few years to imagine the electronic music landscape without making room for Miguel Depedro aka Kid 606. 27 years old, he has already released, apart from numerous studio albums, countless radically divergent remixes, split albums and singles, all this in addition to his work at the head of Tigerbeat6, his own label. From his legendary reworking of NWA.'s Straight Outta Compton (V/VM, Tigerbeat6) to his foray into minimal techno with P.S. I Love You (Mille Plateaux), through to his pirate remixes full-length, opposed The Action Packed Mentallist Brings You the Fucking Jams (Violent Turd), Kid 606 has consistently sabotaged categorization of his work by remaining true to its core. A live act of the “Sid Vicious of techno” can be described in one word: indiepunkgabberidmraverblastbasher !
