Zoon Van Snook


One of the stand out tracks from About Face Musik’s mix: Zoon Van Snook‘s Bibliophone.

Amazing melody, crunchy little sounds and immense progressive synth layering. Not to mention samples using books and a guitar/drum crescendo of biblical Bibliophone proportions. A track this good always leads me to a bit of digging around and the findings?… Lets start with this neat little video:

An interview with Stephen Merchant and Alec Snook ended up backing into a corner whilst managing to tout Bibliophone on BBC6 Music. Luckily, Stephen realised how good the track actually is and proceeded to ask about the samples and the madness behind it:

If you like Bibliophone, Alec also has a talent for remixing, with several available on his Soundcloud, including remixes of Dextro, Radiohead and an awesome Caribou sounding remix of Darwin Deez, below:

If like me, you find yourself kneeling in the face of Alec Snook genius’ productions, you can purchase Zoon Van Snook’s four-track EP ‘Interviews and Interludes’ from the Cookshop Music website, iTunes or Juno which also features this amazing track – ‘Troublesome Trucks’.
