Tigerbeat6 is a San Francisco and Berlin based independent and (mostly) electronic record label run by Kid606 (Miguel De Pedro).[1] The name reflects De Pedro's obsession with cats, which also comes to light in the catalogue numbers, all of which start with MEOW. It is also a loose reference to the top-selling teen magazine Tiger Beat. The label's first release was in 2000 and as of 2013 the label has over two hundred releases.[2]

Tigerbeat6 has four sublabels: Nibbana, Shockout, Tigerbass & Violent Turd.
