about

Kid606 didn't want to die without releasing "Resilience". Comprised of 12 songs composed In many places at home and on tour, from the isolated coldness of Stavenger, Norway to the claustrophobic heat of Athens, Greece. Most noticeable will be the undiluted rhythmic strength of the music, derived from the most primal elements of dancehall, dub, house and hip-hop tweaked just enough to not sink into the formulaic complacence which most instrumental electronica suffers from. This record will be a surprise to many familiar with the almost schizophrenic range of Kid606's output over the years, but rest assured this is Kid606 at his most natural and uninhibited element. Individually these songs all have there own unique identity for the listener to decide upon, but together they are intended to make a cohesive statement of love, depression, nostalgia, psychedelia, escapism and the overall contradictory nature of trying to be happy in a life you don't have control over but won't end anytime soon. In his own words" this is my favorite album because I had so much internal pressure and inspiration to make these songs, but no external pressure to ever make an album out of it or worry about deadlines or how it would be receive. None of these songs are about being naive and discovering things like my past releases, but all about successfully transferring what I heard in my head into songs and then into an album I always wanted to make".
