Kid606 returns to the fray with "die soundboy die" nine original songs that devour and warp current musical trends like dubstep, bassline, ragga, techno and rave (both old and new!)
in his very unique and original way. But that is just a coincidence, These songs are all dark and scary bass heavy jams made to help celebrate life while thinking about death. Hopefully stopping short of being a concept album, every song is different in style and tempo, but a clear musical ideology links these songs together. The louder these songs are played the better they will be felt, tested on soundsystems and PA's worldwide these songs have the lowend to make your ass shake and stomach rumble, all with mad respect to the dub and bass legends and current artists who have influenced him.
accurate words from diskant.net:
"perhaps one of the most straightforward things he’s done. Straightforward in the sense that it’s fantastic, pounding TECHNOJOY of the highest level. Absolutely dominated by pulsatile, growling basslines, there are obvious dubstep grooves here, but delivered at the restless, aggressive pace we’ve come to expect from 606."
"Kid606 has taken the signifiers of classic electronica from the past decade (bits of jump-up, techno, hardcore and bassline all take the lead at various points) to create a miniature tour de force of dancefloor-fillers. "
-good for fans of the heavier side of bassline/dancehall/dubstep ala the bug, vex'd, drop the lime, dj /rupture, dexplicit, the disciples.
