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.
"Kid606's music is impossible to pigeonhole. Citing influences from Napalm Death to Modest Mouse to Joy Division, he spits out spastic, scatterbrained, and utterly beautiful electronic music."
This sounds like its going to be great. I think Filaria were like one of the first local bands I ever saw when i moved to Belfast - do they have a trumpet or a saxophone or something? I think I remember them being good so looking forward to seeing them again! :)
No really guys, can you consider moving it to either the 4th Oct or the 6th, [makes futile attempt to suggest moving gig night, due to band playing in Newtownards that night] there is.... umm... hundreds of really important other stuff going on about NI that night, so ummm like it would be commercial suicide to play on 5th Oct. I hear the 4th or even the 6th will have far better appeal.... No really... I asked my mate and he says it's totally cool to move it to one of those days instead.
PLEASE?!!!![/makes futile attempt to suggest moving gig night, due to band playing in Newtownards that night]
Very upset that I'm going to miss this. Filaria floats my god-damned boat not even in small amounts. Fu[b:6c848f220f][/b:6c848f220f]cksake LEEK...
anyone interested in hearin the sorta stuff i'm gonna play this weekend can check me out on queens radio tonight...ie monday. i'll be doing a little mix on a show called 'the attic', plus i'll be picking some tunes for their playlist too i think. show is 10pm - 12am and is always a top listen.
