Kidd606's first single from his upcoming full length album "kill sound before sound kills you" on ipecac records in the fall. Crazy new
acidtechnohardcorebreakbeat action from the hyperactive manboy known as the kid. "the illness" is a retro hardcore techno anthem for a period which still hasnt occured yet, sweeping melodies and gnarling basslines combined with classic beats and all the sonic sci-fi twist and turns needed to keep you at the edge of your listening seat. "ecstasy motherfucker" is a 9 minute relentless 4/4 160 bpm epic with more energy in it then most albums, thumping 909's mized with baltimore breaks and booty 808's and DSP rush breakdowns all climaxing in a bass heavy speedcore gabber blowout. 12" includes a exlcusive mix of the illness, while the cdep comes through with three new kid606 songs: "evasion", the haunting ambient "circumvent" and "Maybe" featuring kevin blechdom on accordion. note: Each format features
different artwork, as the digipak case the cd comes in could not accurately recreate the 12" cover design.
Shunting aside all pretense towards retro rock irony and IKEA aestetix, Swedish techno misfit Dwayne Sodahberk gives us a new collection of excitingly memorable songs painstakingly composed and improvised with just the right balance between egghead super collider dsp workouts and raw drum machine beats, gildedmodular synth stabs, the occasional glitch, and melodic guitar workouts .
With a handful of EPs for his own Stuporsonika label and appearances on numerous compilations under his belt as well as the occasional Absolut Vodka or Saab advertisement, Dwayne has been quietly making a name for himself since 2000 with driving techno pieces that incorporate ambient elements and minor bursts of noise similar to the sounds championed by labels like Force Inc, perlon and Kompakt. But Dwayne Sodahberk is more than just a fresh face on the minimal techno scene - as his 2002 debut full-length on Tigerbeat6 proved. Deeply inspired by all forms of music, Dwayne sites influences like Unsane, Blonde Redhead, The Seeds, and Velvet Underground to Autechre, Super_Collider, Fennesz and Mike ink. Quite possibly the most mature and promising long player to date for Tigerbeat6, Sodahberk is going to be receiving a lot of recognition for its eclectic, daring carefully composed electronica.
Born near Boston, based in Madrid, DJ /rupture captured the world’s imagination on the strength of Gold Teeth Thief, the “stunning, globe-trotting, three-turntable mix" that "captures the spirit of the best bootleg mixes--bumping, brash, and without borders,” according to the album's four-star review in the April 2002 issue of VIBE. Previously available only on mp3 and cdr, now available in a strictly limited edition bootleg re-release from Violent Turd, Gold Teeth Thief is a work THE WIRE called "so fabulous that you need to beg, borrow, remortgage, and steal...so you can go to the Website and download it post haste." Declared one of the year's 50 best albums by THE WIRE, Gold Teeth Thief has made DJ /rupture one of URB’s Next 100 Artists to blow up in 2002 and earned hm the title “best DJ in the world" from German magazine DE:BUG. For once, the hype is not hyperbole but the just reward for a powerfully syncretic musical imagination, nurtured on the one hand by New York's legendary illbient scene and by notions of the African diaspora on the other. And Minesweeper Suite is DJ /rupture's first full-length statement and response to the world since it swallowed the delicious mix with a thump and a bootyshake.
On Minesweeper Suite, DJ /rupture tears some of hiphop's most familiar battle breaks into arguments that reconstruct "the missing links between dead prez and Middle Eastern dub selector Muslimgauze," as VIBE described his mission. MAHMOUD FADI, APHASIC, DISC, CUL DE SAC, ROTATOR, CEX, GREGORY WHITEHEAD, KID606, J-BOOGIE, DAT POLITICS, BORBETOMAGUS, DJ SCUD, SO TAKAHASHI and DONNA SUMMER all find a home in DJ /rupture's realm, where squalls of noise and dub concréte are the sand in his mixer, scouring away the listener's previous associations with music they thought they knew, forcing them to confront cultural differences in a manner that neither essentializes nor orientalizes but honors them within a deeply rooted, humanistic vision. Minesweeper Suite extends DJ /rupture's mission of dissolving the boundaries between artistic genres and scenes and the result is post-colonial, post-apocalyptic work that the world needs now more than ever
