We have chosen five words representing SnuffCrew. Do these worlds bring up positive thought in your music? What do these words mean for your professional experience?
The Snuff in our name simply means the kind of tobacco which
can refresh your nose. It´s called Snuff. Eins, one half of Snuff Crew, used
to take it at the time when the project was founded. So he had the idea
to name us Snuff Crew. Of course we have nothing to do with the so called Snuff movies.
Jacking is the wonderful way of moving your body and dancing like nobody´s watching.
It is a fullbody experience and it´s big fun to enjoy the music on the floor or
behind the decks in this excessive way . Fans of Minimal Techno probably never will know
how jacking really feels.
The sound of Chicago House from the 80s is our big influence. The music from this time and
also from the 2nd wave of Chicago House in the 90s always makes us happy and inspires us.
We are grateful that we could work with Chi-Town legends like Robert Owens, Tyree Cooper or Mr K`Alexi Shelby. Our cover version of the Farley Jackmaster Funk classic “Jack The Bass” which has been released on SCI+TEC is also another tribute of us to this city and its sound.
ROLAND ANALOG MACHINES
Even if we work with Macbooks and software on stage and in the studio – we also have some of the Roland machines and will also buy some more in the next years. They are simply magic.
Its a wonderful thing when people spend their time with dancing to great music and having a great and peaceful party in an amazing location.
Its always exciting for us to play our sound in new countries and clubs and to discover the local club culture.
