We are pleased to present another installment of our funky and soulful downtempo beat series Street Bangerz, designating Volume 9 to fourteen tracks by Sixfingerz, a Belgian producer based in Antwerp. Much of his edition has an almost instant, timeless familiarity. The guitars stylistically pull from different eras, the musings of instruments from far away lands excite, the rhythm section's samples and pitch manipulated vocal chops are complex, and the lo-fi effects bond together his other unique, knick-knack filled sound pallets. This is not trip hop or downtempo as some may know it, but a hyperactive and boundary-less take on the formats. Be sure to give this a listen.
