"Six60 EP review"

Working within the borders of reggae, roots and drum and bass, Six60's debut seven-song EP highlights consummate playing skills and an ear for production that, while slick, conveys the live intensity with which the band has turned more than a few heads. Songs build up, break down and flow on, driven by glistening guitar lines and a rock-solid rhythm section. Good vocals, too.

"Six60 Live review"

The conglomeration of Kiwi Roots, Dub, and DnB has set them aside as true performers as well as talented musicians. This is an example of Kiwi music capable of world stages that should not be deterred. - snapstar


"Six60 Live review"

Revolver has hosted over 1200 live acts over the 3 years we have been trading and Six60 would rate in the top ten with out any doubt.

Bio

As a band, Six60 originally formed in Dunedin in 2008. Inspired by the vibrant culture of soul, rock and bass heavy electronica that defined late 2000s student life down south, they began jamming out at their infamous flat, 660 Castle Street. Bedroom practices quickly became small living room concerts for friends and family, which lead them to playing flat-warming's, parties and eventually local bars.

Pressured into recording a demo EP by friends and family, they sold their music online through their website and setup some fan pages on various online social networks. As the saying goes, if you give, you get back, and as word about their high-octane live shows, and copies of their songs spread around New Zealand and Australia, they were rewarded with a burgeoning fan base, both in real life and online.

Sitting at 120,000 plus fans on facebook, Six60 also have to their credit, two double platinum selling singles 'Rise Up 2.0' and 'Don't Forget Your Roots', and have toured nationally to sold out crowds for several years now, playing at consistently larger venues every cycle. Along the way they've scored prized time slots at key summer festivals such as La De Da, Rhythm and Vines, Splore, Homegrown and Big Day Out, topped the commercial singles charts, and built a strong, robust audience on both sides of the Pacific.

Blending soul, rock, dubstep and drum and bass, their music is as dynamic, versatile and unexpected as their back story. Extended singer/songwriter jams incorporate dubstep sections as bridges, hard rocking guitar work duels with robust synthetics and thunderous low end bass over vibrant percussive rhythms, and in both voice and
instrumentation infectious melody consistently shines through.

They're a band with songs that make just as much sense when listened to with headphones strapped on, as they do in the heat of a capacity concert moment. And with Tiki Taane as co-producer on their self-titled debut album, they have married what they're known for with where they're going. Leave your preconceptions at the door and let Six60 show you the world as they see it, one song at a time.
