KID 606 & LOST IN THE SUPERMAKI & NUROTIC SOUNDSYSTEM
KID606 aka Miguel Depedro, born 1979 in Venezuela and raised in California, dropped out of school and life to make music and run around the world bringing his uniquely reckless fucked up and beautiful music to our fucked up and beautiful world (one dance party at a time). Insipired by the best of electronica, punk, jungle, hiphop, Bass, dancehall and techno, kid606 Fuses it all together with a love of POP culture that andy warhol would approve. Critically acclaimed releases (both legal and illegal) on ipecac,mille plateaux, fatcat, 555, his own tigerbeat6 label as well as remixes for artists as disparate as depeche mode, the locust, peaches, and super furry animals have painted a clear portrait of kid606 as a inspired, angry and iconoclastic artist more concerned with emotional content then popularity and unwilling to be pigeonholed in any vacant scene or soulless musical genre. Open your ears and shout along, or close your eyes and dance but always expect the unexpected.
LOST IN THE SUPERMAKI is a project of CKID and EVE MASSACRE in which they roam the dirtier corners of electronic music: snotty disco violence, glamourous breakcore. Loud and fast and fierce but always cute they shoot at each other with imaginary water pistols filled with their bubbling ideas and chase pop quotes into shredders, just to coddle them up again. Mean? Yes. Smiling anyway? Aye. And we even have a new song. 🙂
As an extra injection you’ll get Tobi L. of NUROTIC SOUNDSYSTEM with music from abstract hiphop to shreddered ragga, from breakcore to sample pop.
