Last week I introduced London-based production duo Snakehips’ summer-spirited release “On & On” Feat. George Maple. Today we have the official music video to accompany their debut track and it’s every bit as fresh as the beat. Featuring the sultry vocals of the hotly tipped Australian beauty George Maple, over the effortless combination of hip-hop and soulful R&B sounds, the track and video have captured my ears and eyes. Looking like a page straight out of Instagram, the retro video transports you to summer’s past filled with sunshine, skateboards, and a smoky aura.
While the duo is choosing to stay mysterious and remain in the shadows, it is their music that seems to be doing all the work creating early waves of attention. With two of their tracks hitting no. 1 on Hype Machine, the duo’s future is looking as golden as their sunny take on Bondax’s “Gold” single. Entering this growing wave of new electronic genius from the UK, Snakehips’ innovative production skills and distinctive bravura sets them worlds apart from the rest. Be sure to keep these guys on your radar
