Snap Ant - In Dark Three's...
(MP3 podcast on www.parisdjs.com) Snap Ant, 2007-03-11
Ever heard of Snap Ant?
He plays bass and kalimba with Ninja Tune's UK psychedelic masters Super Numeri, with Pop Levi and Karl Webb from Loka (check their discography). If you haven't heard them yet it's still high time!
Snap Ant also released a very cool sample-free psychedelic pop album, "This Is Jut!" on Invicta Hi-Fi Records in October 2005 (read my review).
He remixed Ladytron and Coldcut.
He started a pop band called Maude, with Lynsey Packman and Linus Jackson (download their free online EP).
With Super Numeri he released in september 2005 a mind-blowing mix, "The Enochian Way", a crazy mash-up of various psychedelic stuff from all ages, one of the best compilations of 2005 (check the tracklist).
When he contacted us with this new 28mn psychedelic mashed-up mix, we were delighted, enthousiastic, jumping around, kinda like kids with a new toy: basically, we're proud to introduce the amazing world of Snap Ant to you today.
