Kid606 loves his noise-—and really, so do we. On his album THE ACTION PACKED MENTALLIST BRINGS YOU THE FUCKING JAMS, he runs roughshod all over pop music history, adding noise and distortion to a whole slew of artists. I think it might be more appropriate to think of this album as a one of unauthorized remixes, rather than an original. The problem that arises is that the strength of the track will depend on the source material. So when he takes on Soul II Soul and the Bangles in “Kiddy Needs a New Pair of Laptops” or Kylie Minogue in “Smack My Glitch Up,” the results are great. “Rebel Girl,” however, is completely unlistenable. Other tracks, in which he speeds up hip-hop to hardcore levels, work for the most part, but only become interesting when he throws in hits from the 80s (The Buggles, A-Ha, Yello) into his blender of noise. I especially like his deconstruction of Radiohead on “This is Not My Statement,” which continually repeats and filters the same phrase until it becomes a mantra, then a whisper and a buzz.

This is the best of AmbientPunkRapGabbaPop40 Mash-Ups! Kid606 takes a no holds barred approach to remixing:

Eminem, the Buggles, the Bangles, A-Ha, Missy Elliot, Jay-Z,
Radiohead, Kylie Minogue, D12 and more.

This is glitch-popp-ery at it's finest.
