DELUXE DOUBLE LP VERSION of Being Ridden includes BOTH versions of the album for one reasonable price!
Shortly before his 18th birthday Baltimore,MD native Rjyan Kidwell – under the moniker Cex – discovered a path carved by IDM luminaries such as Boards of Canada, Aphex Twin and Autechre .Within a matter of months,an equally young and inspired laptop artist named Kid606 befriended Kidwell and subsequently started the now-infamous Tigerbeat6 label to showcase the prolific transformations of both Cex and other like-minded artists. After years of releasing albums that Kidwell refers to as "practice,"he takes his tallest leap yet to The Next Level and proudly unravels the first strands of "the real thing."
Produced and recorded in the homes of Kidwell and Craig Wedren (Shudder To Think ),Being Ridden is a monumental leap forward in the career of a guy who,at 21 years old,has already eclipsed any of his heroes in creative risk-taking and execution alone,not to mention shear accessibility.Layering acoustic guitars,hip-hop beats,dense bass,bells and witty,catchy-as-hell Fresh Prince meets Eminem meets Bright Eyes lyrical flows,Cex is just about the freshest mashing of genres ever unleashed.As unlikely as it seems to ix hip-hop party jams,warm IDM glitch and shades of emo and folk,he has unearthed a lost treasure;a heretofore undiscovered gold mine of brilliant beats,charming stories and witty rhymes.Flawlessly ransforming an ideological train wreck into a whole pile of undeniable hits,Being Ridden is indeed "the real thing."
