Kid606 a.k.a. Miguel De Pedro, 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). Inspired by the best of Electronica, Punk, Jungle, Hip-Hop, Bass, Dancehall and Techno, Kid606 fuses it all together with a love of Pop culture that Andy Warhol would approve of. 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 an inspired, angry and iconoclastic artist more concerned with emotional content than 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.
