SIX60

Bonding over a shared love of NZ music and passion for making their own, Six60 formed after meeting at a Kora concert in 2006. Three members flatted together as Otago Uni students, spending countless hours in their recording studio (Eli's room) at number 660 on notorious Castle St.

The six60 sound is unique - a fresh Kiwi fusion of roots, reggae, hip hop, dubstep, and drum and bass. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply.

After an injury which sadly ended his once promising basketball career, he bought his first pair of decks and started DJ'ing.
