Danish artist Snavs is nothing but relentlessly unique in his artistic expression, and his new track “Moods” on Steve Aoki’s Dim Mak Records is no different. In an unusual fusion of Grime and Future Bass music, the track is distinctly divided into two different sounds to represent Snavs’s inspiration: the idea that our moods can easily oscillate based on circumstances in our everyday lives. Opening with splitting synths and grimy drops, “Moods” takes a turn to the Future Bass side with and back again, taking the listener on an emotional rollercoaster throughout its entirety. Snavs has previously released on Monstercat, Lowly, Big Beat/Atlantic, Musical Freedom, and Spinnin’. Read more on his inspiration for this standout track below:
“The whole idea around ‘Moods’ is about reflecting on how fast your mood can change if something good or bad happens and how easily you can be affected by your surroundings. That’s why the mood of the track changes halfway through, and the first half is a grimey Dubstep banger while the second half has more of a melodic and Future Bass vibe to it.” – Snavs
