UK Dancefloor Instrumentalists Snazzback bring a renewed, daring energy to UK dance music. The 7-piece embrace their experimental beginnings to create a sound fusing abstract beats with spiralling improvisation. Their music is soaked in influences including interlocking West African rhythms, rootsy Brazilian flavours, sprawling soundscapes, deep dubstep basslines and flickering arpeggiators. A collaborative instinct runs through the group, and an eclectic choice of vocalists keeps their compositions shimmering with new possibilities.
Snazzbacks electrifying chemistry has wowed audiences at Ronnie Scott’s, The Jazz Cafe and Band On The Wall. A recent highlight was a collaboration with genre-defining MCs General Levy and Flowdan that lit up the Hennesy tent at We Out Here. 2023 has been a stellar year for the group that featured performances on Shambala’s main stage and an electric closing set with Flowdan at Glastonbury. Snazzback have garnered support from BBC radio heavyweights, being championed by Jamz Supernova and featured as her Future Sound this summer and have been supported by Gilles Peterson and Jamie Cullum across multiple records.
