SNAKEHIPS have decided it’s time to reveal themselves as Londoners Oliver Lee and James Carter. Despite a shared home city, the pair met on separate business trips to Hong Kong, where they bonded over shared musical interests. They shared a flight to L.A., began talking music and booked a studio in which to work on a track. It went so well that within days of returning to London they nudged their laptops together and Snakehips was born.
Snakehips rapidly made their name with Hype Machine chart-topping remixes for BANKS, The Weeknd, Bondax and Wild Belle. Earlier this year, the duo also released their 4-track EP ‘Forever (Pt II)’, featuring a several talented vocalists - Londoner Kaleem Taylor, The Internet’s Syd, singer-songwriter Sasha Keable and Daniella T.A.O.L.
The result is a perfect example of Snakehips’ signature sound; a sensual, contemporary take on old school R&B and hip hop.
