As a rebellious youth, Nuts6000 was forced to wear a squirrel mask by a Catholic school teacher. Nuts6000 set out to bite back. “I want to wear this mask and hopefully make some impact so Mrs. Gilchrist can see it,” he said. “And I’m sure she’ll know what I’m saying.”

Described by Russian blog MishkaDJ as “great, good-bye hooligan music for carbonated parties,” this squirrel’s first single release, “Fat Ass,” introduced his signature sound: Blunt lyrics over infectious, danceable synths.

You might be wondering who's under the mask? It's a mystery to us all.
