where to start with kid606? some would say that simple words cannot describe
him but seeing as he is too lazy and/or busy to make a quicktime movie of his
life story words will have to suffice.
When not working on more emo-jungle-digital-indie-trashy-punk-noisy-wicked-
electro-techno-hardcore-IDM-soul and fuck hits to follow up his “don’t sweat
the technics” full length, in his spare time kid606 likes to do remixes for
other people or get other people to do remixes for him.
Born on july 27,1979 in caracas, venezuela, kid606 wears his leo-ness like a
cheesy 60’s playboys’ smoking jacket. While trying to be the youngest person
to make power electronics a popular form of music, he discovered rythym after
sampling zena-geva and breaking his sampler in the process of making a
breakbeat. Many many samplers later (the kid currently favors a kurzweil
k2000rs and akaiS3000xl) he joined spacewurm on there quest to
“intellectualize” gabber and also started ariel with fellow wurmer V to
“deintellectuallize” techno, both projects went the way of andy warhols vital
signs so he started recording under the name Kid606, the rest is “kid-story”.
kid606 also goes under the names tigerboy,scsi bear,kid666,compact digital
audio and the newly revitalized ariel which is now a solo project (which is
still dedicated to dumbing down techno, FYI)
kid606 is also in disc with renegade prog-metaller jay lesser and those
darlings of electronica and the amplified crawfish matmos.
Jud clark AKA “the circuit pimp” is actually VC recording artist INCOHERENT
who is credited on most Kid606 releases for his expert technical assistance and
wicked mods to synths and other things that go “TWEERPWLLBLKWPIJBLEEP_BLOOP”
in the night.
Kid606 is so down with cats, the furrier the better. kittens are cool to.

Thanks for giving me a whole new insight into music and sound. Your music is one of the few things that makes me feel so dissasociated and yet so happy at the same time. Your songs make me feel like i am destroying myself but hopefully in a good way so thanks.
