About this item
Drum Chums is back with the Snack Attack!
For the uninitiated, our Bobby is a man of true culture. Look for a sun-kissed cafe on Stockport's cobbles and you might just find him, sat back in a string vest and shades, coiffing a natural wine and cracking the wisest. Or else deep in the pound bins and car boots of the North West, calmly cutting through the AOR ocean to find the next Yacht Rock gem. And when Snacks snatches the scalpel, he's a wizard, a true star. So dig into this debut delight to find anthemic soft-rock, swooning Balearic, fizzy cosmic and the greatest left-field club track we've ever heard.
Bobby opens his account with the yearning Yacht boogie of 'Picking Up', a timeless tune which sounds a little like a Doobie Brother doing devotionals over a fist pumping rhythm box. Tempo Moderato, trilling sequences, serious synth bass and searing guitar solos are gonna get the hands in the air, believe me. Snacks slows the pace a touch for the shoulder-rolling sway of 'Wipe Y'Hands (XXXtra Chant Version)', a sultry slice of Balearic disco replete with orchestral flourish, tumbling percussion and a spine-tingling serenade perfect for fans of Sarcastic Disco.
Flip the pancake and prepare for genius as Bobby Snacks manipulates a sample like a deep house Dilla, arranging swelling strings, hand percussion and Linn drums into a living, breathing, sacred rhythm, before taking the whole club west into ecstatic uncharted territories. 'Slippy Energy' is the power source of the future. Last, but by no means least, Snacks puffs on the grape vape gets narcotic, slowing sugary synth-disco into a suitably sleazy cruise through the cosmos called 'Shaky Boys'.
100% Drum Fun Guaranteed.
Matt says: A new signing on the Talking Drums roster, Bobby Snacks displays all the dexterity and obscurity we've come to expect from the label as he manipulates four joints into bonafide Balearic master cuts. High tucks and boat shoes not included!
Millie says: The Balearic superstar Bobby Snacks has done it again!! Or in this case his debut which absolutely slaps. Prepare yourselves for the ride of your life with 'Slippy Energy' which I can only describe as the thrill of a dizzying rollercoaster ride. You’ve also been spoiled with cosmic chuggers ‘Wipe Y’Hands’ and ‘Shaky Boys’. But, the pièce de resistance really lies with ‘Picking Up’, this year’s yacht anthem that has people flooding to the dancefloor, it’s like this song has laid dormant within your soul until you hear it, and then everything becomes clear. Consume freely with this one. These snacks are good for you.
Mine says: Mr. Snacks is not just an all-round good egg, he's also a master selector and dissector. If you think the A1 is the best thing you've ever heard then wait 'till you've heard the B1... Get your orders in asap because these edits might just change your life (and whoever has Harvey on speed dial should alert him pronto because these nuggets are gonna rock his socks)!
