    Kid Loco hits the Half Moon Theatre on Thurs 26th June with an eclectic set of groove/hip hop/soul/remixes. It will be a totally different set than the last time he played Cork.

    Doors 11pm. Tickets E10.50 from Opera House/Half Moon, tel: 021-4270022

    Troubleman warms up.

    Kid Loco, is that cool clued-up cat who spins up a mess of french-fried soul and picaresque Parisian passion. Hailing from Paris, Jean-Yves Prier, as his mum knows him, butters up a collection of headphone-romancing blue-grey-smoky-hazed tripped-up hop, pasting his big fat really-doe mix up into something stylish which is appealing to indie rockers, b-boys and the hip/chic brigade worldwide.

    Kid Loco's "A Grand Love Story" gained massive kudos upon its release in 1998 brimming with lush strings and murky bass riffs making it a beautifully crafted, cinematic-sounding masterpiece.

    His remix compilations (DJ Kicks and Jesus life for children under 12 inches) are refreshing in their diversity with remixes for acts such as Mogwai, Pulp, Cinematic Orchestra, St Etienne, The Pastels, Boards of Canada, Underworld and Talvin Singh with his studio album "Kill Your Darlings"‚ displaying his love for angst driven indie rock.

    Kid Loco's live and DJ sets are also legendary for their underlying grooves and eclectic mix with recent production work fully confirming his standing as someone with an ear for gorgeous melodies, laid-back sexy grooves and stunning soulful textures.

    The recent release "LateNightTales; Symphonic Tall Stories For The Small Hours" is a combination of tracks sure to twist even the straightest of heads. This album release features remixes and bizarre, intriguing reworkings of PIL, The Herbaliser, Gang of 4, Aim, Departure Lounge, Frankie Valentine, DJ Crystal to name but a few.

    I'd love to see them but don't really plan to go to Cork to do it. Whenever I'm in Cork I drink too much and have a huge blackout which would make the whole trip a little bit pointless. Any chance they are playing Dublin?
