In-depths reviews and archive encounters with the reggae legend

Over the past five years, San Francisco’s Miguel “Kid 606” Depedro has provoked, invented and exploited many electro trends, mixing up aggro-techno, drill’n’bass, hip hop bootlegs, plunderphonics, vandalised pop, and anything else that can enhance his reputation as a punky noise entrepreneur. Surprisingly, Kill Sound…is his first proper album for three years. As such, it endeavours to show off his full arsenal of quirks, from brattish, squitting gabba rave-ups (“Ecstasy Motherfucker”) and pummelling dancehall mutations (“Buckle Up”) to the Eno-esque “Parenthood”. It’s undeniably entertaining, but perhaps while Depedro has been busy with his flourishing Tigerbeat 6 label, at least one of his roster?the terrific DJ/rupture?may have superseded him.
