Snippet returns with a gloriously infectious EP. Six unique nuggets of sunshine SnipHop that are big on bounce, low on fat & full of technicolor loveliness.
Following on from 2013’s critically acclaimed D.I.Y Album, Snippet takes it up a notch with a batch of killer songs cloaked in sweet layers of retro synths & hand crafted loops, topped off with vocal hooks to die for. This is music to lift your spirits & put a spring in your step.
Whilst proud to be creating his own unique sound, lovers of these artists should find promise held within: - Gruff Rhys, Badly Drawn Boy, Jim Noir, The Streets, Beck, The Bees
“Snippet: A National Indie Treasure…The most played artist ever on BBC Introducing-Fresh On The Net”
- Tom Robinson BBC 6 Music
“Dry of humour and lo-fi of sound, the skewed pop of Colchester’s Snippet
is reminiscent of early Beck.”
- Q Magazine
“A 9/10 artist”
- Louder Than War
“Touched a nerve, we love it.”
- Rob da Bank BBC Radio 1
"Snippet is without doubt a musical shape shifter of some talent"
- Fresh On The Net/Andy Von Pip
“Wow, sounds really great Johnno”
- Ron Sexsmith
Snippet is the work of one man – Johnno Casson. Johnno cut his musical teeth as lead singer of trip hop pioneers Deep Joy, working with the likes of Andrew Weatherall (Primal Scream), James Lavelle (Mo’ Wax/UNKLE) and Adrian Sherwood (On-U-Sound) and touring extensively – including dates with The Farm. Staggeringly prolific, Johnno releases music under a variety of different names, including his own & Old Tramp in addition to Snippet.
London reared & Colchester based Snippet has been forging a wonderfully vibrant path for the past Six years & has released Two Albums & Four EP’s between 2008-2013 which have attracted a world wide following to this very unique brand of wonky pop music from the leftfield; Bouncy with a dash of folk & a splash of funk.
