A melodic LP from Miguel De Pedro is due for release in September.
Miguel De Pedro, better known as Kid 606, is ready to release a new album called Lost in the Game.
The Venezuelan producer (now based in Berlin) has gone through many metamorphoses over the years, but more often than not has pushed a sound that's hard, chaotic and breakbeat-influenced. Lost in the Game shows him taking it down a notch, playing with more soothing hip-hop rhythms, shoegaze-style textures and somber melodies. That said, he certainly hasn't lost his oddball touch, as the track titles make clear. These include "Big Black Ketamine Jesus," "Godspeed You African American Emperor," "I Want To Join a Cult" and "I Need to Start a Cult," though "Night Club vs Book Club" might be the one that best captures the mood of the album. Lost in the Game is out in September via De Pedro's own label, Tigerbeat6.
