(Los Angeles, CA)—Fresh off the heels of their recently released tracks “Cruzin’” (Feat. St Rulez) and “For The F^_^k Of It” (Feat. Jeremih & Aminé), coveted U.K. beat-makers Snakehips release their brand new Stay Home Tapes EP. Designed to be reminiscent of the more old school hip-hop sounds that originally inspired Snakehips, this EP serves as a nod to their day one fans. The 6-track production embodies the diverse and dynamic nature of Snakehips’ classic sound and features a range of vocalists including Jeremih & Aminé, Knox Brown & Chaz French, Elbee Thrie and Jay Prince. The Stay Home Tapes EP is available now at all digital retail providers via Sony Music U.K./RCA Records. See fully track list below.
Stay Home Tapes EP Track Listing:
In addition to the EP, the coveted U.K. beat-makers uses the EP as a soundtrack to an eclectic 3-part mini movie. The story is centered around a middle aged woman named Sue and her adventures with her friend during a trippy joyride through Los Angeles before realizing that the outside world is too crazy and they should have stayed home.
Snakehips say about the EP and 3-part mini movie; “The EP is a bunch of tunes that we made after a crazy few years of touring and travelling the world. We called it ‘Stay Home’ as a kinda jokey way to express all the mad stuff you experience and the bizarre characters you meet along the way, and throughout that trying to stay true to yourself. The video goes with this idea too. It’s a crazy narrative that we cooked up with director Can Evgin based on an Asian woman’s journey through some incredibly trippy shit!”

In 2015, the duo released their EP, Forever (Pt II) featuring vocals from such artists as The Internet’s Syd, Kaleem Taylor, singer-songwriter Sasha Keable and Daniella T.A.O.L., crafting a sound that can be best described as a sensual, contemporary take on old school R&B and hip hop.
