Fans already dipped their toes in the waters of Mark Sixma’s newfound direction in sound when he released album single ‘Million Miles’ a few months back, and the next wave of musical brilliance has just arrived. Today, the Dutch DJ and producer unleashed his long-anticipated mini album, urging fans from all over the world to explore ‘The World Of Six’ and unlock the story behind Mark Sixma’s most personal release to date, with album single ‘Meet Again’ as the most sparkling piece of all.
Showing just how versatile and open-minded Mark Sixma truly is, ‘The World Of Six’ sees its creator step out of his comfort zone to challenge himself. Built around the concept of six different themes – Energy, Unity, Creativity, Dedication, Interaction and Positivity – the album takes a step away from the slew of dance floor stompers he’s known for and instead makes for a six-piece narrative without any creative limitations.
Mark Sixma: “It’s always hard to pick a favorite, but the track on the album I’m most proud of is ‘Meet Again’. Apart from the amazing vocals by Anvy, I also love that it’s unlike anything I’ve produced before. I just let the vocals guide me to where the song needed to go instead of going where people might expect me to go. That’s what ‘The World Of Six’ is about: embracing creativity and not being limited to just one sound or genre.”
Having been a resident artist of Armada Music for over ten years now, Mark Sixma turn heads almost immediately with some of Trance’s most iconic tracks to date. The Dutch DJ and producer made name for himself through tracks such as ‘Requiem’, ‘Adagio For Strings’ and ‘Restless Hearts’, linked up with the likes of Andrew Rayel, Armin van Buuren, Ben Nicky, Emma Hewitt, KSHMR and more, and turned in some rather tempestuous remixes of tracks from staple artists such as Andrew Rayel & David Gravell, Armin van Buuren, Binary Finary, Cosmic Gate, Sultan + Shepard, W&W and more. In all those years, Mark Sixma has proven time and time again that he’s able to reinvent himself and his sound to ensure his career remains as prosperous as before, and this album sees him take another huge step in the direction of creative freedom in its purest form.
