Oliver Lee and James Carter are the storied UK production and DJ duo, Snakehips. With over 2 billion catalogue streams over their career, Snakehips continue to evolve and connect with listeners around the world. Their philosophy is to never take things too seriously, yet always trust their own instinct. This dichotomy of emotional connection and a laid-back approach to life is harmoniously joined in their iconic and maverick sound. Snakehips find their groove within a fuzzy mesh of boundary-pushing R&B, hip hop, and dance music.
Their ease in writing together comes after over a decade of friendship—the pair initially linked up in a Hong Kong sake bar in 2010, setting off the beginning of a long and admirable career as musicians together.
Their 2015 mega-hit “All My Friends” featuring Tinashe and Chance The Rapper turned Snakehips into household names. Accumulating 750 million combined global plays around the world. Snakehips have lent their irresistible touch to a number of trendsetting artists. They’ve had the likes of Aminé, Chance The Rapper, H.E.R., MØ, Tinashe, ZAYN, Anderson .Paak, and more all feature on their records, the pair constantly seeking out versatility in their work. Highlights from their extensive catalogue include their beloved bangers “Don’t Leave,” “Either Way,” and “Cruel,” along with the 4-track EP Forever (Pt. II). Whether they’re making high-energy club hits or universally-relatable love songs, Snakehips creates their own form of musical escapism by subverting genres time and time again.
