Miguel De Pedro (KID606)

One of the most playful artists in the American electronic music scene — as well as the founder of the Tigerbeat6 label — Kid606’s lack of seriousness regarding “intelligent techno” (conspicuous in his attitude as well as his recordings) was inspired by hardcore techno, indie punk, & noise rock.

His music is known for its high tempo breakbeats and liberal use of noise and sampling, as well as its punk aesthetic, uninhibited genre-mixing, and irreverent sense of humor. However, he is equally adept at creating more serious tracks that often reside in the realm of ambient and glitch.
