Chrispy only really came to my attention fairly recently. I’d heard a couple of his tracks a while ago but for some reason I managed to totally forget about him! *Slaps self*. Anyway, I was looking around Soundcloud and saw his name so I took a look at his page. After being blown away by what I heard, I tracked him down on Facebook and he sorted me out with this interview…
Chris Snape, 19, Liverpool UK
How did you get into music production?
‘I had a copy of Ejay years ago when I was young and I enjoyed using it until my brother lost the disk for it. Many years later I was bored and remembered how fun it was, so I looked into more production software and found FL Studio so I got a demo and it all went from there.’
Which producers influence you? What inspires you to create music?
‘Borgore, Datsik, Excision and Downlink are producers that influence me the most I think. I get inspiration from many places, from other dubstep tracks and other genres such as house or hardstyle.’
Which of your tracks is your personal favourite (and why)?
‘Possibly ‘Predator’ or ‘Alien Weaponry’.’
What have you been working on recently? Do you have anything due for release soon?
‘Just finishing off my next EP which should be released in February.’
Any shout outs you want to do?
‘All the other guys on 2MuchBass and of course my fans and promoters who’ve helped me get to where I am now.’
Now for the tunes… Chrispy gave us two of his favourite tracks to take a look at first; ‘Alien weaponry’ and ‘Predator’. Both are insanely filthy tracks. It’s up to you to decide which is your favourite but mine has to be ‘Predator’, the bass is just so dark it’s almost unreal!
This next track is the one that I heard first from Chrispy. Despite hearing most of his other stuff and being blown away by it, this remains my personal favourite. I think it’s mainly the Tranformers samples that do it for me… This is the VIP version of ‘Roll out’, I went for the VIP basically because Chrispy’s made it just a little more epic…
Next up we have ‘Dr Satan’, another feast of filth. Chrispy uses similar bass sounds as in ‘Roll out’ but manages to create a totally different effect with them. A powerful, dark track…
Lastly, we have Chrispy’s latest track… A remix of Rhianna’s ‘Rude Boy’… Now we all know that Rhianna’s pretty dirty anyway, all that PVC in her videos and shit but this is just on another level… This is ‘sex with your own Gran’ dirty…
Be sure to check out Chrispy’s Soundcloud and Youtube pages for even more killer tracks…
…And show him some love on the Facebook…
Take it easy, keep it filthy.
