Download a New Beat Tape from Kid606
- Words: Glenn Jackson
Longstanding and wildly prolific producer Kid606 will drop a new LP, Happiness, next month through his own Tigerbeat6 imprint, but before then, has elected to issue a small collection of new beats as a free download. Going Back to Kali Yuga consists of six "freaked-out, moody synth-hop jams," each full to the brim with restless synth tones and the many twists and turns of Kid606's finely honed proficiency with unpredictable drum programming. Meant to serve as a teaser for the forthcoming Happiness LP (out October 21), Going Back to Kali Yuga gives an intriguing taste of where the veteran beatsmith's head has been at recently, and—best yet—can be streamed/downloaded for the price of an email (or more if one so chooses) via the player below.
