Sixtoo – Chewing On Glass & Other Miracle Cures

Sixtoo is one of a crop of former operatives on the Anticon label, like cLOUDDEAD and Buck 65, who have endeavoured to bring a fuzzy, disaffected, avant-garde sensibility to a hip hop scene gone slick and sour. Although most of this gang have been around since the mid-’90s, only now are their efforts truly coming to fruition. Chewing On Glass’ tone is set by its opening, a lingering, ominous loop of sheet-metal reverb. Influenced by listening to too much Cabaret Voltaire and Joy Division than is bad for you, the remainder of the album sounds like a Krueger-esque rebirth of DJ Shadow, or tapes of ancient TV theme tunes neglected in a dank basement, re-spliced in their grime-caked condition.
