Double Bass player and producer Sneaky, best known as part of decks 'n bass combo Fingathing is on the verge of dropping his debut solo LP. To give you a taste of whats to come he has released a digital only downloadable EP featuring 4 of the tracks from his website www.thisissneaky.co.uk. The Feel Like A King EP features the tracks, String Talk, Beduija, Feel Like A King and The Gentle Rain.
String Talk has a lazy (in a good way) jazzy vibe and a tounge in cheek feel that should leave most feeling oddly happy.
Beduija with its North African feeling main hook and massive bassline is the EP's stand out track for me, I have this on repeat all the time. Nice chap that he seems to be, Sneaky has also made this track available free and all you have to do is register on his site. Though as the whole EP is only £2.50 you have no real excuse for not actually paying for the whole EP.
Feel Like A king features the vocal talents of Barbara Panther and is one of those rocking beats and vocals tracks that sneaks up and infects you.
The final track on the EP has a decidely Gotan Project flavour and showcases Sneaky's abilty to combine his classical skills with the beat driven downtempo genres perfectly.
All in all this is highly recommended stuff especially if you are a fan of his work with Fingathing, personaly I can't wait to get the full LP.
