This is your Daily 2% – Chilled and Ready to Serve. We will try to bring you one “chill” track every day. This is for when you get home and you are trying to unwind. You reach for that glass of wine or that unlit Black & Mild or maybe you reach for something more herbal. This track is for those times. We are just your milkmen and I’m here to make a delivery. Chill…
Today’s delivery is brought to you by Sixfingerz. Dabbling with music production ever since he was a kid, he has been through many phases including IDM, underground electro, techno, trip-hop, and hip-hop. He adopted the moniker Sixfingerz three years ago and has not looked back. The accumulation of his early musical interests is quite apparent throughout his pieces.
His tracks are known to have an old school feel to them, as well as plenty of unique sounds mixed in thanks to his array of ethnic, worldly instruments and collections of old records. Sixfingerz is also is quite the remixer. Needless to say, he bangs out interesting tunes that are far from a typical trip-hop beat. He is quite fond of incorporating old vocal loops and lo-fi effects to express that sense of timelessness in each of his beats.
“The Devil Man” throws you into the heart of the South with the classic blues style guitar and vocal loops. Just when you think you are all settled in your air boat in the middle of the delta marshes, Sixfingerz puts the mellowed out-hurt on you with the introduction of snare claps and a hefty bass. It’s an interesting combination of elements to be interwoven with each other. Blues-style slide guitar with phat beats, say what? Say nothing. All you need to do is take off your-shit kickers because hey, I bet you’re fixin’ to chill…
