D�sseldorf brought up a few stunnig as well as unique experimental / electronic bands. The Triphop / Electronica Trio SixTurnsNine is rooted in this tradition while they partly break with it at the same time.. SixTurnsNine was founded by Philip Akoto (strings), Lutz Bauer (keys/programming/electronica) and Anja Trodler (vocals) in 2015 at the legendary venue "Alter Schlachthof" in D�sseldorf-Derendorf. Coming from totally different musical backgrounds SixTurnsNine together create their songs within a charged creative field full of details and little traces that bear witness of their individuality in sound. The symbiosis of different musical influences ends up in songs with almost danceable trip hop beats and dub step elements combined with a somehow dark ambience, massive hypnotic bass guitars and lurid electronica. On top of it all you hear the impressive, dark and bluesy voice of Anja Trodler. Yes, there is a slight 90s vibe to be found, but it is just one layer within a brighter spectrum where there is much more to be found besides and underneath, for example break beats, atonal industrial music, New Wave or classic Woodstock spirit. You may also find references to bands like 'This Mortal Coil' or some other 4AD-bands from the 1980s. Until now SixTurnsNine released two video singles called "Painted Clouds" and "Threat in The Neck". In May 2018 their first 6-track-EP will be released on Echozone / BobMedia in physical form as well as for download. Just before that SixTurnsNine will hit a few stages on a club tour to promote the EP in advance. The EP is entitled "Spinning Numbers". It contains five regular tracks plus a remix of "Threat in The Neck" by Spherical Disrupted. The EP was recorded and produced by Lutz Bauer, mixed and mastered by Bob Humid (Cologne - mastermind of Der Liederkranz, Fat of Excellence, Serve & Destroy). Artwork and design was done by Hendrik & Julian Klein (takk design).
