Didn't I TELL you Sixto is back? It's my pleasure to post another of Juan's album cuts, this time from Lucid Dreaming:
"This is a track I did for Stevo's NiGHTS into Dreams project. Wanted to do something different than my usual heavier rock thing. Tried to give this a kind of dreamy feel but didn't want to rely solely on synths (trying to phase synths out of my music completely) so I tracked some clean guitars, something I don't do very often. Hope you enjoy."
Hey pal, what's wrong wit synts, eh? You gots sumtin' against synts? Don't know what that's all about, as it's a rather wide range of textures & possibilities to be "phasing out," but I do know that this mellower, cleaner, couples-skate Sixto is a smooth customer, and that this mix serenades the ear with fretless bass, sustained, clean guitar tones, subtle drums, and later a mellow & crunchy lead that builds w/ the aid of some nice, varied cymbal work. As long as Juan doesn't go all crazy and decide to phase rhythm or notes out of his music completely, my money's on his legend continuing, one way or another. This has the feel of a late 80s/early 90s rock ballad, with a certain warmth; most of Sixto's tracks don't really have much space left for vocals, but this is one arrangement where I actually think a collab with the right vocalist could have worked really well. Director Stevo writes:
"Juan is, I firmly believe, secretly every amazing guitarist ever just working under a pseudonym, rotating responsibilities with each song. His flexibility of style is vast, to say the least. Definitely channeling Satch here, as he pitched the style to me by showing me Rubina. He effortlessly pulled off the fusion between the source track and the attempted style, this song being one of the most prominent live-instrument focused tracks on the album. Now, if you'll excuse me, this song is putting me in the mood to lower my lights, turn on the fireplace, and make sweet, sweet love."
I do hope he's got company; otherwise the angels cry. Great lower-key chill rock from Juan!
