Snippet is London born / Colchester based Johnno Casson with a big help from Dutch producer Wim Oudijk. Casson cut his teeth as lead singer of trip hop pioneers Deep Joy, working with the likes of Andrew Weatherall (Primal Scream), James Lavelle (UNKLE) and Adrian Sherwood (On-U-Sound).
BBC 6 Music favourite Snippet has released 4 EPs between 2008-2011 and an album 'Slowly slowly catchee monkey'.
Snippet’s debut album Slowly Slowly Catchee Monkey is delivered with a keen understanding of how to present modern electronica fuelled pop music in an original and devastatingly appealing way. Add to this splashes of folk & funk, this album offers light & shade that delivers on a number of levels with a refreshing & unique take on what life has to throw at you.
This is a melting pot debut of the observational & biographical with hooks to die for; yet scratch their surface and you’ll find these are songs chock full of character and substance. Snippet's music is 100% original and revels in sounding deliciously different and fresh as a daisy.
If you fancy something cheeky, squeaky and quite uniquey then throw on your shades, pull up a deckchair and dip your toe in!
Snippet's latest release 'Lets talk about us' is being offered as a free download via his Soundcloud page http://soundcloud.com/snippetcuts
