There is something in the water in London because the amount of amazing musicians and artists coming out of the area is ridiculously astounding. Enter SNAKEHIPS: A North London experimental music producing duo who have demonstrated a solid ear for creating funky tunes out of other musicians’ tunes no matter the genre. Most notably, the smoothed out and packed in rework of Bondax’s “Gold” is more than impressive. Less than a week ago, “On & On” became the latest SNAKEHIPS track released to the internet masses and the early response has been crazy. Is all the buzz warranted might be the next logical question asked and I can say with a straight face that it absolutely is.
On the surface, “On and On” has a very sleek, laid back vibe to it and I can picture myself listening to the song while cruising down the street on a sunny summer day. My shades would be on, the top would be down and the gorgeous vocals of George Maple would be happily blowing through my hair. Now that sounds inviting doesn’t it! Diving in a bit deeper, “On and On” has a rich texture similar to the best kinds of R&B tunes and embellished with just a bit of hip hop flair. Throw in some jazzed up guitar flutters and a head bob inducing bass line amidst sporadic video game imitating fits of electronic pulses, and the results are downright silky good. Not bad for a musical team with a facetious name like SNAKEHIPS. Not bad at all!
