Snacks - Burnin’ EP
Berlin-based duo Snacks drop an infectious four tracker on House Of Disco this October.
Forming Snacks in 2014, New Zealand’s Rene Corbett and Germany’s Aljoscha Babel have been joining the dots between funk-fuelled disco and sultry house with releases landing on Pusic Records, Boogie Angst, hafendisko and Mule Musiq. As DJs they’ve been transforming dancefloors into all out bedlam with their upbeat and eclectic performances, whilst their party-focused productions have found a home in the record crates of Ben UFO, Detroit Swindle, Prosumer and Beats In Space’s Tim Sweeney.
‘Burnin’ inaugurates the package by dropping a laidback drum rhythm, piercing chords and soulful vocal loops topped with a fuzzy bassline. ‘Matinee’ then takes things into deeper territories with organic percussion, blissful synth swells and uplifting choral patterns, before ‘Deep Fry’ generates a compelling groove with smooth bass licks and rich string harmonies.
In demand Dutch duo Fouk, who’ve appeared on HOD as well as Razor-N-Tape and Heist, deliver an offbeat take on ‘Deep Fry’ with delicate melodies, opulent pads and cosmic nuances resonating throughout. Finally, a digital only remix comes from fellow Netherlands-based pair Soultage, whose rendition of ‘Burnin’’ works with the original’s pianos and vocals to produce a new level of funk.
Snacks ‘Burnin’ EP drops on House Of Disco on 3rd October on vinyl and 14th October digitally.
