SCHIZOTRONIC DJ Kid 606 must have been taking his pills.
The last time I reviewed the Berlin-based Venezuelan-born American electronica artist Kid 606, real name Miguel Trost Depedro, for his erratic Mr Wobble's Nightmare EP, he stuffed dance genres haphazardly into the mix like a modern day Jive Bunny.
However here, his ravetastic techno - while still laced with unexpected booty bass, house beats and junglist interludes here, there and everywhere - is almost coherent.
So while he is admittedly cheesy at times, and long-winded at others, his Dancehall Of The Dead EP, which clocks in longer than most artists' LPs, is actually worth a visit.
