While many producers start off on similar paths, once you reach a certain level you have to change and innovate the game. On our latest visit of to Dim Mak we are checking out “Moods”, the latest drop from Snavs. A consistent pusher of genre boundaries, Danish producer Snavs has made it his mission to change what we know as electronic music today. The label boss of Riotville Records, Snavs uses his production talent and limitless vision to collaborate across genre lines and make unique music that begs the question…why do traditional genres exist? A few of these collaborations include hardcore metal band Telos, legendary Scandinavian rocker Ulf Scott, Søren Buhl of alt-rock band Blaue Blume, and indie singer Karen Lassen. Snavs clearly has a handle on what he is creating, as his music has led to performances at historic venues such as Webster Hall (New York), Avalon (Los Angeles), Bootshaus (Cologne), WOMB (Tokyo), Pacha (Sydney), as well as well-known festivals such as Coachella, Tomorrowland, EDC Las Vegas, Eurosonic, Miami Music Week, Amsterdam Dance Event and more.
“The whole idea around ‘Moods‘ is about reflecting on how fast your mood can change if something good or bad happens and how easily you can be affected by your surroundings. That’s why the mood of the track changes halfway through, and the first half is a grimey dubstep banger while the second half has more of a melodic and future bass vibe to it.” – Snavs
While Snavs has explored combinations including indie, heavy metal, and alt-rock, we’re sticking a little bit close to home in the electronic world. In his relentless pursuit for unique artistic expression, Snavs finds himself over at Steve Aoki’s Dim Mak to dabble in the world of grime. However, knowing Snavs, he can’t just play around with grime. In a rather intriguing combination, Snavs uses “Moods” to take the core elements of both grime and future bass and contort them to fit his vision. While they don’t necessarily fuse that much into each other, “Moods” feels more like a track from two distinctly different worlds that complement each other, working in an odd harmony. If anything, the song does represent Snavs core idea behind the single: the idea that our moods can easily oscillate based on circumstances in our everyday lives.
