Snap Shot, aka Mark XTC (co-founder of Intalex Recordings & a former DMC Champ) and Microcosm, just dropped the third release on Manchester’s NB Audio imprint with VIPs of “Dooms” and “Dark Shadows.” The label’s aim is to provide an alternative outlet for alternative electronic artists to be distributed internationally and stepping out of the gate with such heavy hitters will help that process.
The original instrumental version of “Dooms” was handed over to Chimpo (we’re big fans) so that he could layer on a bit of lyrical madness. Mr. Big Taters does his thing with steady aplomb which syncs up nicely with the rolling vibe of the tune. Meanwhile, Tonn Piper’s lyrics on the original “Dark Shadow” haven’t changed from the audio equivalent of nasty bout of depression “while you play with a shotgun, alone in the dark” (fucking hell) echoes on top, but the aggressiveness of it has increased with an amen workout.
Grab ’em via Juno, then play ’em loud and proud.
