A word from Red Snapper: “This has been a great experience for us and opportunity to experiment, create unique beats, loops and soundscapes that provide producers with useful tools and an insight into how we work in the studio. The process has been a combination of bouncing ideas off each other and jamming in the studio - often it’s our individual misinterpretation of each other’s parts that creates our unique sound.”
