Fun fact: there was a time when Kid606 actually was very much a kid – a hyped-up, metal-mouthed teen with a dream, some machines, and no attention span. With nary a computer in sight, the then-unknown Miguel De Pedro set out to fuck the scene before he even really knew what it was. These raw and noisy Electro/ Gabber/ IDM tracks were mostly made and improvised on a laundry-list of classic gear – the Roland 303, 606, 808, and 909, a Paia Modular, Sequential Circuits Pro-one, Moog Rogue, Akai S3000, and Kurzweill K2000S. Like the slightly more well-known at-the-time Orbital, De Pedro sequenced with an Alesis MMT-8 recording everything live to a DAT walkman without the aid of any multi-tracking (not that it wasn’t available back then, but it takes patience, which was clearly in short supply in Kid606’s hormone- and ADHD-riddled brain). With the aforementioned gear list, you’re thinking acid and techno classix, so stop – remember again who you’re dealing with. Kid606 wasn’t (isn’t) Autechre or Luke Vibert (a-duh), and this sure ain’t Incunabula, to say nothing of “Military Jazz”. Instead, what we have here is a basket of hardcore fun: build from average track bpm’s of around 170bpm, next to no musical knowledge and a whole lot of teenage angst (De Pedro’s no rapper, but let’s just say that Odd Future didn’t invent the fucked-up teenage psyche confessional). We guarantee you an interesting listen; by the end of all 38 tracks you will surely be as appreciative of the dawning of the Powerbook as Kid606 must have been. If it wasn’t for Steve Jobs this would probably be and 8-disc collection instead of just two. Disc one contains all the tracks from the full-length “Don’t Sweat The Technics” (VC140), while Disc two contains all the tracks from the Lesser/Kid606 split CD (VC142), and the Omnibot/Kid606 “Unamerican Activity” split CD (VC145).
