Anderson Paak is the man of the moment. His new album Malibu is the year’s best thus far and he slayed SXSW in Austin by all accounts. Last year he featured on Dr Dre’s Compton album and most recently, he teamed with Stones Throw producer Knxwledge as NxWorries and featured on TOKiMONSTA’s ‘Put It Down’
Snakehips’ rise has been more prolific since they made the leap to the US where they’ve collaborated with Syd Tha Kid and had a smash-hit that’s still happening in ‘All My Friends’ with Tinashe and Chance The Rapper.
The two have now intersected on Snakehips’ new song ‘Money On Me’.

The UK production duo Snakehips known for their bumping electronic beats, have a new EP called ‘Forever (Pt. II)’ on the way and they dropped a new track from it called ‘Gone’ featuring The Internet’s Syd, also of Odd Future.
The pair have been announced for a Hidden Agenda gig on Saturday March 18th, alongside Prins Thomas. Tickets from €10 via Resident Advisor & Ticketmaster.
After teaming up recently on Snakehips’ ‘Days With You’, but they also flipped the collaboration prior to that with the London duo provided production for Sinead Harnett’s own new song. Harnett’s track now has a video for it in which Harnett hangs out in various locations bumping to the track.
London production duo Snakehips have teamed up with singer Sinead Harnett, who has collaborated with Disclosure, Ryan Hemsworth and Rudimental, for a head-nodding beat summer jam, perfect for rolled down windows and hot-baked leather arm rests. The single is out on August 22nd but should be rush-released immediately so it can be played in summer car journeys.
I completely lost interest in The Weeknd as the approaching Kiss Land moved into view like some sleazy sex fart. It definitely lacked the charm of the mixtapes that came before it. ‘Wanderlust’ broke the album’s mould by inserting (excuse me) some disco funky disco rhythms into proceedings.
Clever UK production duo Snakehips have used the song as material for a superb dancefloor rework. Lovely. Snakehips play their first headline show in London in May. Previously, hear their excellent own track ‘On & On’.
