Snakehips is about to blow up the music industry.

The London-based duo is becoming exponentially more popular as music lovers discover their retro, yet innovative sound. They have been topping charts on Hype Machine since their first release, a remix of “It’s Too Late” by Wild Belle. Since then, they’ve joined high quality artists including A$AP Mob, Christina Aguilera, Justin Timberlake, and Shakira, as a part of RCA Records. Snakehips has released one EP and toured all over the USA, Europe, and Australia.  Lucky for us, they’re coming to DC’s very own 930 club this Friday. 

What I like most about Snakehips is the way that they incorporate old school R&B and hip hop into electronic sounds. Their most popular single “All My Friends,” combines house beats with heavy bass and hip hop samples to produce a bumpin, catchy song. Snakehips, Tinashe, and Chance the Rapper collaborated to incorporate all of their talents into this work of art.

Purveyors of all things involving awesome electronic music in the District, Closed Sessions is back at it and they’re bringing Snakehips and STWO (along with Royal and Hunt For The Breeze) to U Street Music Hall this Wednesday. Happy hump day!

SNAKEHIPS: For some reason, music made in the UK (and beyond) always slaps, and Snakehips is no exception to this rule. Their particular brand of electronic music is entrenched in soulful vocals, swishy synths, and deep bass. Is slow-house a thing because if so, Snakehips has it down pat. Their music manages to blend elements of house and soul, with a warmth that is not to be lost on the dance floor. Their remixes are amazing. Their original songs are amazing. This is a show you cannot miss.
