Rjyan Kidwell aka Cex is a real musical prodigy. At the age of 19 he alread had a catalog of releases and a record label behind him. In 1998 he started Underscore Records and released a triplet of CD-Rs with a couple of friends. Not even two years later Kidwell put Underscore to rest to start another label, Tigerbeat6, with San Francisco´s Kid 606. Slowly the label moved to the forefront of the San Francisco IDM scene, as with Orthlorng Musork and L.A.'s Plug Research. Continuing his streak of obscure good luck, Cex released an applauded full-length Roll Model in August of 2000. His pop culture goofiness is seen with such songs titles as "Academy Award (Cex's Radio Edit)" and "Wallstreet Kid." He has also recorded for Stewart Anderson's label, 555 Recordings of Leeds and toured with Kid 606, Gold Chains, and Blectum from Blechdom, wowing audiences with his energetic, comical show. The constant touring also helped support his 2001 release, Starship Galactica. Cex only continued baffling expectations by following a 2001 electronic-pop LP (Oops, I Did It Again!) with a record named Tall, Dark & Handcuffed, indebted to the golden age of hip-hop. Just turned 21 Cex proved that he is able to perpetuate his eceeding juvenlie qualities with impressing sustainability.
