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. 🙂

“I steal the night away Drivin my life away, danci…

“I steal the night away

Drivin my life away, dancin'”


(R.Gibb, “Juliet”)

Today is a mess. I haven’t done any of the things I planned to do. I’ve spend far too much money on ordering single malt whisky. I had an annoying hiccup. I always get hiccups when I eat plain bread. I hate it.

I also hate putting CDs back onto the shelves. I swear, they secretly breed. I have them sorted by alphabet so it totally sucks to move half of the alphabet because of one new GENDERS cd. (Note to myself: Stick to buying cds from Z artists, ignore the As. Zeni Geva, Zongamin, ZZZZ, Rob Zombie, that’s the shit. But then: would you sort Zodiac Mindwarp as ‘Z’ or ‘M’?)

What also annoys me: When I buy a DVD I don’t want those stupid commercials and warnings on them. If I spend money on a legal copy I want it to be free of such crap. Imagine having that on vinyl: You buy an album of, let’s say, Codeine, put it on, sit down, relax with a glass of red wine in the middle of the night and pow! – suddenly at the end of the A side you have Snoop rapping a commercial for his next album.

As the mighty McSleazy surprisingly announced a PLACEBO challenge on GYBO, I quickly had to have a first go. Here’s the short and silly but rocking result: “The Bitter End” mashed with overused pellas from BEYONCE ft. JAY-Z, AVRIL LAVIGNE and 50 CENT. (Rightclick and save to download.)

“Bitter Kitten” mp3

If you don’t know yet what to do tonight and are in Nuernberg, I have a recommendation: THE ELECTRIC DOG (DJs B.Orange, Yellowman57 and Paluka 82 – you can check their playlists at their cute little website here: www.the-electric-dog.de) have a party with Jool (ELEKTRONISCH ROCKEN, GO GITARRE GO) at the Z-Bau (Roter Salon). I’m sure it will be great. (It better BE great as I don’t want to regret trudging my way through that stupid snowy mess outside!) 🙂

R.I.P. J-DILLA



J Dilla (or Jay Dee) was a producer (and MC) who made some great and memorable music with and for Common, The Roots, D’Angelo, Erykah Baduh, De La Soul  and many many others.

“Oh no, love! You’re not alone.” -…

“Oh no, love! You’re not alone.” – a little tour diary

“Oh no, love! You’re not alone.
No matter what or who you’ve been
No matter when or where you’ve seen
All the knives seem to lacerate your brain
I’ve had my share, I’ll help you with the pain
You’re not alone.”
(D. Bowie, ‘Rock’n’Roll Suicide’)

Eve Massacre has been on tour for a couple of days, here’s a little tour diary: The drive to Cologne on Thursday was a grey mess: It took me ages cause it was foggy as hell. It didn’t matter too much cause when I arrived I still had time for a quick soundcheck and a little chat with the guys of Club Camouflage and Zaehlen sie die Dreiecke and a sip of beer before the latters’ project COMMANDO ZURUECK started playing. The played nice electro punk, think Alter Ego meets distorted vocals like MTK to give you a vague idea. Sadly there weren’t too many people at the show. I guess the wild dancing and destruction of a keyboard at the end of the show would have really rocked a bigger crowd. Poor little casio! It’s a nice little club with a great soundsystem (if my memory serves me right the Liquid Sky people had something to do with that) – almost too big and bassy for the size of the room. I was a bit excited but when I played the second song my nervousness had disappeared and it simply felt good to let go and the sound was great – I loved it. It’s weird, most of the times I know from the first song on how the rest of the set will turn out. After the show we talked more about music software than I’d ever have thought I would find interesting but I have this soft spot for dedicated nerds of all kinds, especially if they are as infectiously enthusiastic as these guys. I had a really nice time, thanks again Alex & Roman & Club Camouflage!
Sadly I didn’t have loaded the batteries for my wonderful new little digicam but at least I took a few pictures of the cute artist hotel in which I stayed that night, ‘Monte Christo’. We need such a place in Nuremberg. Hooray for silver plastic deer heads!

I slept almost scarily good and long and after a short walk in the city I packed my stuff, said goodbye and headed for Muehlheim which was only an hour drive. Okay, an hour and a half if you get lost like I did but this AZ club is really hard to find. I was to play with ALICIA LEDON (I think you can best find out about them and their releases via the MEUDIADEMORTE website which is worth checking out anyway, especially if you’re into noisier and weirder parts of music, e.g. John Wiese) and NAD MIKA at a GENDERTERROR party. Thanks to Svenja and Keywan and Stefan and all the other Genderterror and AZ people who made this a great night. It was good to meet Stefan of ALICIA LEDON again, and to finally see them live. They sound far less experimental than I had expected but more dancy and electro, or dark wave with the adequate dark and sometimes provocative lyrics in german. Here are some pictures (there are more on www.evemassacre.de):

After them NAD MIKA played. I had expected a one woman electro punk show and got a spectacle: she had a couple of gogo dancers, I think all songs were about fucking, and she was all animation. They threw sweets to the audience and there was aerosol whipped cream action and all that to really heavy electro techno tunes that got the crowd dancing. It was fun but when I saw that, I couldn’t imagine playing after that party monster of a live act and for a moment I wished I would either disappear or turn into Kylie Minogue for a while. Well, no magic happened, I stayed my chubby old self and then Nad Mika was done and they left the floor and crowd in a sugarcoated heated slippery mess. I put up my stuff and was so happy when I started playing and felt that it didn’t matter. The music made the audience disappear from my mind and it was great to play and when during some song I looked up and saw that the people enjoyed it too. Phew. Like passing a test of courage. Here’s some pictures to help you understand:

After that the GENDERTERROR ladies spun some lovely dance music (Soulwax, Chicken Lips, Tiga, you get the clue).

I enjoyed that for a while, chatted with some people, especially with a very drunk Uli, a friend from Bochum I hadn’t seen in a while. Felt good to share some thoughts. I went to bed at four in a kind of gym with a freeclimbing wall and fell asleep guessing the tracks from the party underneath by their pumping basslines. I had to leave rather early the next day cause I first drove to René, the other half of LOST IN THE SUPERMAKI, to drive to Esslingen together in his car. It was a bit like Saint Nicholas day when I opened the door and found a surprise breakfast package prepared by Keywan.

I hadn’t gotten enough sleep so after a three hours drive I took a little nap but it didn’t really help. Somehow I didn’t really get awake on that day. Maybe else I might have been a bit scared of René’s shaky driving skills, hehe: He hadn’t driven for a bazillion years before he had gotten that car to which we switched to drive to Esslingen. At the KOMMA Joerg first gave us a little sightseeing tour of the venue which is really nice and big and . There was a bar area and a huge hall for a drum & bass and jungle party and the smaller concert hall. We met the AN ALBATROSS sweethearts who also played that night and more and more people we knew turned up, from Wuerzburg, from Nuernberg, lots of familiar faces. FINN played first and were a bit boring. Boring in a professional way if you know what I mean. THE LOVEKILL played after them but I didn’t watch them cause the room was too crowded but I had enjoyed their show in Nuernberg a couple of weeks ago.

Sadly I didn’t get into the right mood for playing a really good show. Maybe the Jaegermeister would have helped. I felt a bit like standing next to me. Don’t know why but sometimes you simply can’t connect. It still was fun. And I promise the next LOST IN THE SUPERMAKI show will bring back strobe and drawings and fireworks and soap bubbles!

AN ALBATROSS
were loud and drunk and lovely. They sound even more 70s rock now than they did last time and heavier, although I can’t really put a finger on what causes that. I don’t think it’s only the new drummer. The music seems to be less hectic playfulness but more powerful dominance. Less khol and painted fingernails, more muscles. I’m curious to see them again on Tuesday. Everyone should go see them, check their tourdates!

We didn’t stay very long afterwards because we both were rather tired and Joerg took us to his place were we could spend the rest of the short night with harmonic snores. At the morning we had a cozy breakfast at the venue and it was nice to stay a bit longer chatting with Joerg and Falte and some other KOMMA people before we drove back home.

I enjoyed those three days, all the nice people and nice moments. Making memories that make you feel fuzzy and warm that’s what it’s all about in the end.
Although it also felt good when I got home today got me a pizza and comfily watched TATORT tonight I already feel like going out on tour again.

P.S.: I’ll go back to answering mails tomorrow, promised! Sorry about leaving some of you waiting so long.

Here comes a new free download song for you: For t…

Here comes a new free download song for you: For the GYBO PRIMAL SCREAM challenge I mixed their song “Miss Lucifer” with GRANDMASTER FLASH‘s “White Lines”. It’s not really a mash up. It’s more of a remix or simply sampling & karaoke fun. When it felt that I needed another bit of bass line that fitted “White Lines” I added LIQUID LIQUID‘s “Cavern” and to vamp up the beats I added some funky “Original Black Magic” by INFEKTO. To top the tune off I sang some lines from “Miss Lucifer” with slightly changed lyrics: “Skinny boy dressed in black / Leather boots, nazi hat / tattoed black panther, vampire cape / sexy dancer, magdalene grace”. Here’s the mp3 of the song (rightclick and ‘save’):

MISS LIQUID LUCIFER: Black Panther Bass



For those who asked: The “Helpless Fool For Love mix*1” is available again. Get it from
here (leftclick). We also put another LOST IN THE SUPERMAKI online, check www.myspace.com/lostinthesupermaki.

Fancy something like show reviews? Here you have a few lines about RYE COALITION and THE BUG.

When RYE COALITION came to town, it was a bit of a hectic day for me cause my Mom celebrated her seventysomething birthday and I was half there and half at the K4 helping in the kitchen, checking riders of upcoming shows with our soundguy than drove back, drove my family to a restaurant were we had dinner, yummy mexican food but with lots of garlic, and no chewing gum left, yuck, then drove back to the K4, had missed the GHOST ROCKETS who played first, but came just in time to chat a little with friends and to get overwhelmed by a sudden and immense after dinner sleepiness. Drinking two Club Mate and the musical ass-kick of RYE COALITION soon woke me up again. When they started playing they made me think of Van Halen’s “Hot For Teacher” (one of the best rock songs ever written), if only for the brillant drum player. They played an awesome rockshow, and seemed to warm up the longer they played. There was some nice band/audience interaction too, it was a cool show. Despite all the stories about them being a bunch of arrogant bastards when they last toured Germany lots and lots of years ago (they last played at the K4 about 6 or 8 years ago with EA 80) this time they were really nice guys. Polite and all. I especially enjoyed the night cause I met two dear friends I hadn’t seen in a while: Martin, who drove RYE COALITION and Paul, who came all the way from Prague for a visit. Paul managed to make me really nostalgic, thinking back of the times when my old band used to tour a lot and we met him every month, or so it seemed, either when he was with a band that played at the K4 or we met him somewhere on the road when we played shows with Pleasure Forever and the At The Drive-In guys and so many more. Especially one show in Spain keeps popping up in my head: We met him when we played with Pleasure Forever and The Fucking Champs and it was a stormy night in some village at the sea and the venue was a former slaughterhouse, really cool, and the wind drove the sand in the air and in your eyes when you weren’t careful and people smoked lots and lots of weed at the show which made me quickly forget about my cold and I was totally in love with the flamenco-handclaps that people in the first row did – ach, it was wonderful! [sorry, nostalgia mode off.] Well, I made a knot in my mental hankie to remind me of really really really planning to visit him in Prague some time.

A couple of days later THE BUG played at K4, and Mr. Kevin Martin and his technical claims almost drove Tobi (who cared for the show) insane, but somehow it turned out to be okay and he would play the show and I’m so happy he did! It basically was a dj set but with lots of sample / final scratch usage and very diverse music. He started with short ragga bits and pieces, I think from the stuff he had done with Warrior Queen. I felt it was cool that he started his set with female vocals over his dark agressive music because it kind of withdrew a bit of the male/power cliche that often is connected with ragga. At first he did short cuts with hard breaks but then smoothed into a more danceable yet still very heavy and loud set. Oh, and of course there was fog and strobe, sometimes even so much fog that it made me go outside to smoke a cigarette. There were some smile moments (for example when he played a snippet of “99 Problems”), oh, and he played “George Bush Doesn’t Like Black People”, and my favourite Wiley tune, “Wot U Call It” (but he hardly played any grime). I can’t say what I liked most about his set. I think the experimental instrumental parts in which he built up really heavy tension with noisy grinding synths were the most intense ones for me. I think it was fun for him too cause he played longer than he had planned and he played encores.

The next night Ckid, Stefan and me dj-ed at an electronic music festival in Hersbruck. I didn’t have to drive, that’s why I drank far too much but not toooo much if you know what I mean. Jim Avignon came with us from the Nuernberg central station (he played there as ‘Neoangin’) and Tommy drove and René had cute toy gifts for us from visiting Frauke in Japan and a nice blinking plastic being that rode on the turntables (my only turntable action on that night was turning over the slipmats that got huge tits printed on them, and I stuck to cds) and yes, I really had fun there, even though the high frequencies dropped out every now and then. I had fun until some Neonazis showed up, or more exactly: until I realised that the promoters didn’t even think of throwing those hater assholes out. There were excuses like “as long as they don’t cause trouble” and “here in Hersbruck things are a bit different” – oh my! It was a big surprise for me cause I thought it’s an integral part of our subculture scene not to tolerate the intolerant. I didn’t want to play party tunes for Nazis, so I played stuff like Against Me’s “Baby I’m An Anarchist” and MDC’s “John Wayne Was A Nazi” and tried to explain to one of the promoters why that was an absolute intolerable situation for me and to be honest: I was glad that it was at the end of the party cause I really didn’t know what to do. Too drunk to dare and care to be more offensive myself I kind of played along and I felt really bad about that for a couple of days. If this ever should happen again I definitely will stop playing and leave. And I definitely will not play for those guys in Hersbruck again. Just because you’re not the target group of that right wing scum’s stupid hate and agression doesn’t mean you can look away and ‘tolerate’ them.
