Kid Kameleon
A beat strategist and technology enthusiast who blends, chops, restructures and generally smashes rhythms from across the sonic spectrum. From breakcore and ragga-jungle to dubstep and grime, with stops along the way at B-More, dub, dancehall, hip-hop, DnB, electro and the straight up unclassifiable, he’s a champion of underground sounds and outsider music. The Kid has dropped his fast-paced, eclectic style at parties from California to Estonia, sharing stages with the likes of Kool Herc, U-Roy, DJ Spooky, Asian Dub Foundation, Alec Empire, Squarepusher, The Bug, Vex’d and The Plastician, and many more. A blogger ( kidkameleon.com, riddimmethod.net, and localoaf.org), he also writes a monthly column called Basic Needs for XLR8R magazine covering “Low End Necessities from Ragga to Dubstep and beyond”.

Ripley
Ragamuffin Dubwrecker. “rootical rally-cry uproar, rythmic danger in overdrive.” “lifesaving whirlwind mistress of sonic devastation with hot sauce.”

RIP Tim Haslett

Back in the mid ’90s I used to go to parties where the Beyond the QE2 crew would be throwing down, and they’d always play an inspiring mix of IDM, techno, jungle, R.I.P.house, rave, etc, in addition to a new sound out of Baltimore that they called Baltimore breaks.

I loved this Baltimore sound and couldn’t understand why it was impossible to find the records they were playing. As it turned out Tim Haslett was getting them directly from the sources in Baltimore and the QE2 crew were buying them all out before they even hit the shelves at Boston Beat. None the less, those shelves were stocked with the freshest electronic-dance-music in the land, as were the shelves at Biscuithead, Other Music and whichever other shops Tim worked at. That Baltimore sound is of course what went on to become known as B-more club which only finally blew up over the past few years. Tim knew it was good then and I thank him for bringing the sound to Boston.

I used to go to Other Music when Tim was a buyer there and he always loved chatting about music. He’d tell me which his favorite recent Breakcore releases were, and then go on about productions by the Neptunes, practically in the same sentence. His knowledge was so deep. I hadn’t seen him in quite a while but was very saddened to hear that he passed away last week. I’ll always remember him as a music luminary with an ear to the deep underground and a knack for shining light on sounds that were otherwise difficult to uncover. This one’s for you, Tim.
