Sixtoo - Chewing On Glass & Other Miracles Cures
(2xLP/CD) Ninja Tune ZEN86/ZENCD86, 2004-05-17

If you follow underground hip-hop then chances are you already know who Sixtoo is. Member of the 1200 Hobos, prior Anticon affiliations, Sebutones with Buck 65, Sage Francis, Aquasky... Names that are all relevant to his past and what he is doing today but Sixtoo is also stepping into some whole new territory now. Now signed to Ninja Tune, Sixtoo has come through with a whole new type of record, easily the best record of his career so far. Yeah, it's still hip hop in some senses, but it's also a whole lot more. You see, Sixtoo spent four months on this album before abandoning everything he had done and decided that he had reached a dead end with the approach to sampling he'd utilized on his previous records. So it was time for something different...

Press Release :
If you follow underground hip-hop then chances are you already know who Sixtoo is. Member of the 1200 Hobos, prior Anticon affiliations, Sebutones with Buck 65, Sage Francis, Aquasky... Names that are all relevant to his past and what he is doing today but Sixtoo is also stepping into some whole new territory now.

Now signed to Ninja Tune, Sixtoo has come through with a whole new type of record, easily the best record of his career so far. Yeah, it's still hip hop in some senses, but it's also a whole lot more. You see, Sixtoo spent four months on this album before abandoning everything he had done and decided that he had reached a dead end with the approach to sampling he'd utilized on his previous records. So it was time for something different.

That something different arrived in the form of a Rhodes electric piano bought for him by a girlfriend, and a move to Montreal. Suddenly, Sixtoo found his way out of the trap, melody lines being spun out of hours of experiments, tunes beginning to take shape. Now taken with the excitement of making music in a more immediate way, he began calling up friends and acquaintances to come in to help him fill out his ideas. Can’s Damo Suzuki, Norsola and Thierry from Godspeed You Black Emperor, Matt Kelly, Eric Craven from The Hanged Up and many more can all be heard programmed and chopped in the signature Sixtoo style. And sometimes the audio tricks are left alone in favor of some straight quality live playing. All brought together to create what is essentially a psyche rock/jazz masterpiece as made by a long time hip-hop producer. A record born out of the excitement of finding something new, and of collaborating with like minds to move it all forward.
