Announcing the CD archive version of Donnacha Costello's 6x6=36 project (which was initially issued as 3 separate 12"'s). Six tracks, each of six minutes duration were written/recorded/edited in just six exhausting days as Costello locked himself in his Dublin studio. Get all tracks here: "6.1": Sounds like the hyperactive bastard child of a threesome between Studio Eins, Richie Hawtin's Concept sound and the modern sound of Costello himself, along with loops and whirrs. Random elements rub like sandpaper against the precision for a mathematical yet groovy and exhilarating ride. "6.2": 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. "6.3": Weaves a dirty, gritty, digital, bass-heavy groove. Simple yet devastatingly funky, the repetition builds to a looping, swinging climax. Simply killer. "6.4": The aural equivalent of someone spiking your drink and pushing you backwards down a helter skelter into a cartoon world of hypnotic bass, twisting modulations, swinging rhythms and hyperactive snare drums that work the crowd into an all-out frenzy! In all the hot crates for all the right reasons. "6.5": This track is pure, beatless ultra-stripped super-dub. "6.6": Totally unhinged with its undulating bassline, filtered beats, snippy clicks, whacko hook, and insomniac spoken vocal line. Housed in a beautifully designed 3-panel digipack, this CD compiles the six tracks featured on the 3 vinyl releases of this outstanding conceptual project. Despite the expense of the sleeve production, this one reaches fans at mini-album price -- a very nice surprise.
