Sixtoo

Jackals And Vipers In Envy Of A Man

NINJA TUNE

Released: 17th September 2007 | 13 track album
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. Consider this part of the next chapter in Sixtoo’s lust for dirtstyle street level expression tracing back to his early graf bombings and dusty basement recordings. The man’s been crazy busy mapping out next-level guttural assaults on a slowly suspecting public. Along with Jackals and Vipers, latest manifestations include his shit-hot Megasoid DJ / remix project (alongside Hadji from Wolf Parade), rammed up monthly club nights, and strictly word-of-mouth ‘Bridge Burners’ (aka free outdoor illegal street jams with mobile soundsystem) drawing over 1000 people on a regular basis. For Jackals and Vipers in Envy of Man, Sixtoo has delved further into the solo electronics realm that resonates with the brash abrasiveness of his other projects. Surrounded by a stack of machines in his studio space, he set out to make a record compiled from elements originally recorded for use in his live sets, reworked them into new pieces, and then stitched them together as a tape-edit record. And the results are mindblowing. Sixtoo’s signature drum machine fury is combined with dark melodic electronics/synths to create film-noir style paranoia pieced together into one suite with many different movements, sounding 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…something that may require a warm-up and a massage before listening. Truly a head-nodding/beat-down affair of the highest order.
