Where the hell is Six Vicious???
Well, truthfully, dude has been on full time lab mode doing artwork and getting a serious live set together for the October tour (alongside Ghislain Poirier in Europe.... holler towards email@example.com for the few available bookings!). He has also been trying to level the earth with Megasoid PA soundsystem action (we started a new residency at The Drake Hotel and are starting another one in NY before the fall ends....everything you have heard about this shit is true, come peep game at one of the nights!).
There is a new Sixtoo LP coming out on September 11th, titled "Jackals and Vipers in Envy of Man" and there will be a bunch of Sixtoo shows in Montreal, Quebec City, London Ontario and some other spots before the European tour happens. Peep those dates below!
In other news, I have been busting ass getting artwork together for various north american Ninja releases including Ghislain Poirier's new LP and 12"s, a 60hz f. Cecile 7", The Megasoid Remix 7" for Ghislain Poirier (and a nice little tattoo design for the homie Kyle). Peep all them round things above, and cop em when you see em! All fire!
You may have heard/ seen some things about it... The Megasoid renegade van parties have gotten way out of control... as is the night at Zoobizarre, we needed to slow the roll for a second before someone did something really stupid... (can it get any dumber than ghost riding rentals on an island with no police after being awake for 36 hours on el leanyo?). All that to say, we have had an amazing summer, but we need to see other commitments filled before a lawsuit ends up in the hands of the Megasoid. Megadudes are on hold till our respective fall tours are done (okay, thats a lie... there are two f*ng MONSTERS that we will do before the leaves hit ground... promise.
1. 700 person Yacht party with Amon Tobin (after the Piknique Electronique)
2. Glitch Mob / Daedelus / Megasoid /Tyconichi after hours for Pop Montreal.
These two joints should be f*cking nuts and will be the only Megasoid shows until we return to our club nights.
As for the new LP.... yeah, it got leaked. People seem to like it alot. I think it is something that takes a lot of energy to listen to, as it is a process based record, and not a songwriting based lp. There are no singles (but there might be a new EP for fall tour). I think it is very much a sixtoo LP, if you like that shit, you might see this stuff on the level somehow. I will just add this: Writers are playing themselves by ripping lp's so far in advance (for my full .02 on the matter, go peep the ninjaforum... it is neither here nor there for me).
Sixtoo will be launching the record at Osheaga, alongside the homies (Kops Crew vs. Heavyweight) in the tents. (ps: The painting for the cover [above] is by my homie Jeremy Felker... he is the shit, and I am glad I got him to do the painting).
Osheaga: Will we see a replay of last year?
In addition to that shit, I recently remixed a track of Amon's "Foley Room" LP, which will most likely appear on his next 12". What else? Megasoid tracks and remixes for Isaiah and some other dudes we know... and the new Sixtoo EP 12" for tour. Tell your mans and them. Oh yeah, and a nice little DJ mix for Scion (Six Vicious - Ghost Ride The UFO) sometime soon!
So yeah. a million things have been going down.
ps: I know need a new website badly, but am too lazy to rock it myself... and have very little time for anything aside from the full time beats/design/remix routine before tour.... maybe fall we can get some new webthings popping...for now, just tell the homies, EUROPE, WE ARE DOING IT HUGE.
That real live shit - Dilla.

[Sixtoo blasting the new shit last Thursday @ Saphir]
So, as you can see on the frontpage, a new Sixtoo LP is planned for a fall release. I played out a live set last week which was comprised of the final material. It is an all edit-based record, recorded and compiled in a semi-mixtape form, from both board recordings and a few short studio sessions. There are no 'guests' on the record. There are some performances that include my good freind Hadji Bakara (aka Oxytalkin' of Megasoid) and some other improvisational material between myself and Jef Neve (a brilliant european piano player who I performed with at the opening of the TRIX venue in Antwerp). The artwork and title should be finalized by the weekend, but it will most likely be called "Jackals and Vipers in Envy of Man". It is much tougher and slightly more uptempo than any of the other records that I have recorded, but is pretty much what you would expect if you have seen / heard any of my live performances in various citys in the last year. In any instance, I feel really confident about it. The process of doing an edit record has pushed me into some new directions. It is complicated in its minimalism, and sounds like Sixtoo. If by some chance there is a single for the record, it will most likely be a collab of some sort, and will most likely be a vinyl-only 10 or 12 inch (maybe digital only?). This record is not a single-based record. [Fall, NinjaTune]
Some other things that I completed in the last couple weeks:
Joey Beats artwork layout and mastering for new his 7", CD, and LP (all shipping very soon!) [Bully Records]
D-Styles artwork deisgn and mastering for his new 7" (shipping this week) [Bully Records]
Matth 7" mastered, artwork this week. [Bully Records]
DJ Signify should be delivering his next full length in the next couple weeks, it is set for a fall release. [Bully Records]
