INFO > 6 x 6 (or Six6) was a house leaning offshoot of Network Records, which traded mainly in rave and techno. This statement from the release booklet brilliantly sums up the label’s attitude:

The sad fashion is for dance labels to define a sole groove. The house nation, once so varied, has become about branding, not non-conformity. Incredibly, it’s somehow not cool to like Crispin J. Glover AND John Digweed, not normal to enjoy Nu-Soul AND Fathers Of Sound. Well, sorry, but we think it’s weird if you don’t adore Glam AND Kim Beacham, to be into Serial Diva AND Dave Clarke. This is a sampler of singles from Six6 and associated labels. The signal is mix it up and be disparate, not desperate.
