Style: Glitch Hop / Dubstep / Drum & Bass
When & Where:
Snareophobe are a forward thinking live/production duo from the UK, brought together in 2009 by their intrinsic love for bass music. Since then they have built a reputation as an act that never fails to blow up a crowd with their high energy live sets. Taking influences from Jungle, Hiphop, Garage, Breakbeat, Dubstep and Drum & Bass, they mix up heavyweight bass lines, samples, loops, FX and mash up their own tracks over 4 channels, remixing on the fly. Often joined on stage by Dub Fx, Lil Rhys & Mr Woodnote; layers of twisted, electronic music & vocal effects come as standard!
Snareophobe smashed 2011 to pieces with a string of shows and festivals throughout Asia, India, Europe and the UK. Releases dropped on Functional Records, Ape Music and Dub FX’s label Convoy UnLtd with support from the likes of Bassnectar, 6Blocc, Calvertron and Freq Nasty.
“This year we’re completely re-working our live setup, focusing on heavy squeeze bass lines and cider drenched funkapellas… on a kind of Junglist John Connor comes back in time to rescue Hip- Hop, kind of vibe.”
Deep in the Bristol underground the pair have been preparing their new live show to be unleashed in summer 2012. Performances are guaranteed to be laced with dance floor killers including unreleased remixes and pipeline collaborative projects with some of the biggest names in the bass music community.
