die soundboy die (2008/TIGERBEAT 6)
ELECTRO/INDIE-ROCK. KID 606 returns to the fray with "die soundboy die" 9 original songs that devour and warp current musical trends like dubstep, bassline, ragga, techno and rave (both old and new!) in his very unique and original way.

Hopefully stopping short of being a concept album, every song is different in style and tempo, but a clear musical ideology links these songs together. The perfect teaser for KID 606's new and completely different much happier full-length album "give up then get down" in early 2009. This album includes a CD of all 9 tracks!

the game (2009/GHETTO JOSH/EULOGY)
