Small Talk: Snakehips19-Apr-2012
The North London based producer Ollie Dickinson – Snakehips – makes incredible new beats with the sound of classic underground hip-hop. His EP Hoffman West has been out for a little while now, but just in case you haven’t copped it yet we thought it best to fill you in on his talent.
My name is… Snakehips.
I live in… London.
My EP is called… the Hoffman West EP.
Some of the things that inspired it are… Soul music, 8bit hip-hop stuff, being unemployed and having nothing better to do with my time.
It’s cover art is… a dope picture that my friend Cheggz made for me. Thanks mayng!
My favourite track is… either If You Feel Like I Do or Yuss.
The person I can imagine listening to it is… Noel Edmunds.
My favourite mixtape would include… Lots of things… At the moment I’m really feeling people like Dibiase, Ta-ku, Juj etc. Then some classic stuff by Pete Rock, Preemo, 9th wonder, Madlib… and some Michael Jackson.
When I’m not making music I… am editor of a music website/magazine.
The last thing I downloaded was… Blank & Kytt Heavy, Crazy, Serious – incredible EP!
The next project I’m working on is… Not sure yet, I’m constantly making beats and sharing them on my Soundcloud page. Might make another EP this summer if I get a minute…
