Press Release :
First Word is proud to present the debut album from the hottest new funk band in the UK - the incredible 6ix Toys. After launching The Haggis Horns & kidkanevil to massive critical acclaim, 6ix Toys are the latest act to join the ever-growing First Word roster.

6ix Toys are a 7-piece funk powerhouse currently based in Liverpool. A major part of the local funk and jazz scene the band comprises drums, bass, keys, guitar, trombone and sax with the addition of No Fakin' DJ Fred Ruddick on the cuts.

After the massive success of their debut single - an unstoppable cover of The Prodigy classic 'Voodoo People' the boys have followed up quickly with their long player. Over ten tracks of authentic funk this is a straight-up party album, aimed directly at the dancefloor.

With the band's instrumental tracks at the heart of the release, there are also a few choice vocal collaborations: Blues vocalist of the year Connie Lush lends her lungs to the opener 'Paint The Toon' with One Self's Yarah Bravo adding a sultry vocal to the laid-back 'The Grind', and Katie Miller of The Diesler Live Experience appearing on the Motown-infl uenced 'Cannibal Lunch'.

As well as the ubiquitous 'Voodoo People' there are plenty of other club cuts - notably party-starter 'Giggle', the driving 'Mosquito' and the bouncing 'Bend Yo' Knees'.

After the brilliantly catchy cover of The Prodigy's Voodoo People, the album is like the JBs in full flow - Highly recommended! David Taylor (The Independent)
