Sidney George Wilson, better known as the mask-wearing turntablist for heavy metal group SLIPKNOT, will release the second of his trilogy of albums, "∫∑x©∆p∆D∑∫ øƒ †h3 høP∑£3∫∫ ®øbø†¡¢ Vol. 2" (Sexcapades Of The Hopeless Robotic Vol. 2) on December 13. The effort will feature guest appearances by Killah Priest, Rome Fortune, DJ Q*bert, Bizzythowed, Deewillalien, Sluggo and Arius.
A preview of the disc is available below.
The first album in the trilogy, "∑x©∆p∆D∑∫ øƒ †h3 høP∑£3∫∫ ®øbø†¡¢", arrived in August 2018.
In a 2018 interview with PureGrainAudio, Wilson spoke about his evolution into a turntablist. He said: "My grandma had a piano or keyboard in her house. She would play church songs and stuff like that. I would tinker around on that when I was younger, and she bought me a couple keyboards. One of them had lights on the keys that would light up when you were supposed to hit the keys. I had a bunch of cards that you would put in the keyboards that had all these classical songs, so I kind of learned to play those a little bit when I was a little kid. But there was just some other shit that I was fiddling with because I was interested in a lot of different noisemakers. My grandma used to have a lot of harmonicas around the house from her husband, my grandfather. I used to fuck around with those when I was a kid, too.
"I tried all different kinds of stuff," he continued. "I messed around with drums. I tried the saxophone. Then I really liked bass guitar; I latched on to that big time. Then writing, doing poetry, and then around junior high, I started writing some raps. Then when I started DJing, I had a bass guitar that an ex-girlfriend had given me. When I was out of town DJing, she came and took the guitar back and told my mom she could have it back or something. [Laughs] So then I just had the turntables and focused all my energy into the turntables big time... I tried to be in the background more, making beats, producing, which is good for my skills... At some point, I started doing that again and I redeveloped back into hip-hop."
SLIPKNOT is continuing to tour in support of its sixth album, "We Are Not Your Kind", which was released in August via Roadrunner.
