Aaron Snapes is the latest member of the Dirtybird family and comes with his debut, a two track EP called Introducing Aaron Snapes. Aaron’s career start in 2012 with his first EP – check his Beatport page for his huge amount of releases. In 2013 his rework of the classic Flat Beat by Mr Oizo was played at festivals and clubs around the world from the likes of Eats Everything, Justin Martin and Flux Pavilion.
The bubble-jack slap-attack “Panther” ignites with a series of soft subs before dropping into a loopy, choppy robovox hook and a strutting drum dynamic that chugs with raw sonic muscle. While most panthers purr and prowl, this one clouts and howls with rich low-end elements and absurdly chunky beats. Dig deeper for the rush-rinsed tech funk jam “Space Bass”. Wherein a bulbous flurry of basses lick and tickle beneath a series of teasing techy risers before dropping into an icy sea of breezy chords. Complete with a sub-narrative of mischievous loop trickery, every element of the groove is laden with intricate detail.
This is exactly what I want to hear these days, fresh sounds and Aaron Snapes EP is the perfect example. Be sure to grab this EP on Beatport or iTunes. Enjoy!
