"Announcing a special new project of Donnacha Costello: 6x6=36 six tracks, each of six minutes duration were written/recorded/edited in just six exhausting days as Costello locked himself into his Dublin studio. They will appear over six sides of vinyl to be released over a period of six weeks. 6X2 -- The first installment in the 6X6=36 project. Housed in a beautifully designed and spot varnished sleeve, and sounding equally impressive, this is exactly the type of high quality release people have now come to expect from Minimise. '6.1': sounding like the hyperactive bastard child of a threesome between Studio Eins, Richie Hawtin's concept sound and the modern sound of Costello himself, '6.1' loops, whirrs and spins a constantly shifting, energetic and pushing groove which tears floors apart as the opener in his new live sets. Random elements rub like sandpaper against the precision for a mathematical yet groovy and exhilarating ride. Like life itself, just when you get a handle on it, it shifts. '6.2': intensity in ten cities! Machines loop and fall all over each other as a snarling, gnarly twisted modular synth growls over the top, bass rumbles beneath and the percussion swings furiously. Costello's trademark edits round out the picture. The whole track is awash in paradox; devilishly dark yet completely ecstatic, claustrophobic yet liberating. Costello is lashing us with sound and we love it!"
