Press Release :
- This is the second full-length for Sixtoo on Ninja Tune, with the instant classic Chewing On Glass and Other Miracle Cures (ZENCD86 / ZEN86) from 2004 being the first.
- Sixtoo has releases on Anticon, Mush, Vertical Form, Endemik, Bully and 6 Months.
- Although Sixtoo has mad skills as an MC, this album is solely a reflection of his studio prowess.
- Sixtoo has done production work for Sage Francis on his Anticon and Epitaph releases.
- Since the release of his last Ninja album, Sixtoo has done soundtrack work for the film NEXT: A Primer on Urban Painting, released a collaborative project with Norsola (from Godspeed! You Black Emperor), helmed graphic design for indie beats label Bully, composed a mini CD to go along with an artbook by prolific graffiti artist Other, and transformed himself into alter ego Six Vicious.
- A new venture, alongside Hadji Bakara from Wolf Parade, called Megasoid has been tearing up club sound systems and leaving them for dead.


When the dog days of summer are nearing a close, Montrealer Sixtoo will be dropping his latest masterpiece, Jackals and Vipers in Envy of Man, onto society.

For this new record, Sixtoo has delved further into the solo electronics realm. Surrounded by a stack of machines in his studio space, he set out to make a record compiled from live sets performed in various places at various times to stitch them together as a tape-edit record. Along the way these tracks evolved into entirely new compositions, melted down to their basic elements and refined into what we now know as Jackals and Vipers in Envy of Man. The results are mindblowing. Sixtoo's signature drum machine fury is combined with dark melodic electronics to create film-noir style paranoia pieced together into one suite with many different movements. It sounds as you would expect: aggressive, deep, complex, spatial, and more importantly, tough as nails.

Jackals and Vipers in Envy of Man is a reflective look forward for Sixtoo…a beatscape that may require a warm-up and a massage before listening. Truly a head-nodding affair of the highest order.
