|RedRum IV: KID 606/CEEPHAX/SICKBOY/BASS CLEF/ GROMOV/LADYSCRAPER/DJUNYA/TECHDIFF
Kid606 aka Miguel Depedro, was born 1979 in Venezuela and raised in California, dropped out of school and life to make music and run around the world bringing his uniquely reckless, fucked up, and beautiful music to our fucked up and beautiful world (one dance party at a time). Inspired by the best of electronica, punk, jungle, hiphop, bass, dancehall and techno, Kid606 fuses it all together with a love of pop culture that Andy Warhol would approve of. Critically acclaimed releases (both legal and illegal) on Ipecac, Mille Plateaux, FATCAT, 555, and his own Tigerbeat6 label as well as remixes for artists as disparate as Depeche Mode, The Locust, Peaches, and Super Furry Animals have painted a clear portrait of Kid606 as an inspired, angry and iconoclastic artist more concerned with emotional content than popularity and unwilling to be pigeonholed in any vacant scene or soulless musical genre.
Ceephax Acid Crew is an acid house and electronic musician named Andy Jenkinson.
He is the brother of Squarepusher (Tom Jenkinson), and this fact is often mentioned in any press article about Ceephax and his music.
Underground record labels Firstcask, Lo Records and Breakin' Records each released music by Ceephax (his first record released when he was 18 years old). The more famous Rephlex Records and even more famous Warp Records both released remixes of Squarepusher by Ceephax which sound nothing like the originals.
Piers Martin interviewed Ceephax in 2000: "In the earlier days when Tom lived at home, I always used to play about on his synths if he was out," Andy recalls. "Obviously Tom was doing loads of music and that was always inspiring, and one day it just clicked for me and I started doing music straight away."

Sickboy Milkplus (aka Jurgen Desmet) is one of Europe's most original and innovative electronic producers, with a myriad of projects including "breakcore gives me wood" and "servants of the apocalyptic goat rave" and an impressive string of releases on tigerbeat 6, peaceoff, mirex and wood. Favoring pop music appropriation and crushing breaks as a preferred medium to tear up the dance floor, Sickboys' performance will not disappoint the adventurous.
X&trick started dj-ing and organising parties in 1998. He was one of the first dj's to introduce many new music styles like breakcore, industrial, braindance, drill n bass into the Belgian scene.
In June 2004 X&trick's solo ep 'Forever' saw the daylight… This debut ep got well received by international press and scene, so he started to tour more often and further outside Belgium. After several European tours with his mate Ceephax, they started to work more closely together which resulted in a release by Andy Jenkinson on Bug Klinik. They've been spotted frequently on many European stages delivering their sonic attacks to the masses…
Between 2005 and 2008 X&trick has been extensively touring with his live act, playing on Europe's most respected nights and festivals, (being the first Belgian act on the London's legendary Neo-rave: Bang Face) and memorable tours in the United States and Japan…
X&trick's music could be described as a mixture of countless kinds of (contemporary) music. Jungle, DrumNBass, Electronica, Techno, Breakcore and Hardcore are all music styles which get blended in his fresh cocktail of beats, bass and melody…An energetic live or dj-act which seems to get the move in every dancefloor!
"It takes the sonic palette, the menace and some of the rhythms of grime, and applies to them production techniques learnt from dub and abstract techno. What's relly great about it is that, although the bass could probably rupture an internal organ, the groove and the hooks are ultimately so irresistible, you'd still keep moving if it did."
