DJ Sneak – Moody Warehouse Music Vol. 2
After kickstarting Summer with an almighty bang, unleashing Volume 1 of his new release series ‘Moody Warehouse Music’, DJ Sneak keeps the underground heat coming, releasing Vol. 2 on Magnetic Recordings! ‘Moody Warehouse Music Vol.2’ kicks off with the energetic ‘Didn’t Know Nothing’, armed with driving beats and a dark pulsating bassline, deemed to raise the thermostat to boiling point! ‘I Need My Baby’ comes with a girly vocal hook that rides over a jackin groove of signature Sneakology beat science. ‘The Hot Shit’ gives a wink to Arrested Development’s anthem ‘Everyday People’, laced with a series of dynamite vocal, piano and brass hooks, underpinned by Jackin’ beats. Finishing off this monstrous 4 tracker EP, ‘Won’t Stop’ is an infectious underground groove with twists and turns, all bound together with classic soul and seductive vocal sample loops to fire up the crowd!
“This project is all about my mood when playing in warehouses and unusual venues. This set of tracks were made to hit these type of places and events. My whole vibe on these tracks is “Strictly Underground Dirty Moody House Rhythms” lots of bass > grooves > melodies > and hard hittin’ Sneak Beats. This is music for real DJs, the ones that can walk into a party no matter where and make that place bounce!” – DJ Sneak
