If dance music was a building then the TR 707 would be one of the principal foundations, having defined a generation of producers from Marshall Jefferson to Aphex Twin, Plastik Man to Phill Collins, Daft Punk to Snuff Crew! But such sentimental use of a defining instrument is not exclusive to the Snuff Crew, it would appear that if you want your music to "Jack" then the 707 is a pretty good way to start, and Snuff Crew love to "Jack."
Since dance music's inception, Acid House - or the house of Jack - has spawned a gospel spread by disciples that span generations. The Snuff Crew represent a new generation of "Jackers" who bring a new definition of Chicago House to dance-floors and with this they join an illustrious list of artists that include Kikumoto Allstars, Andreas Gehm, KiNK & Neville Watson. Like these producers their arsenal is part Analogue and Part digital, using high-tech and up-to-date software to record timeless and irreplaceable hardware such as the 707. Their ideas for music often come on like epiphanies in situations that for the uninitiated could appear mundane. From dancing in a club to listening to their favorite DJ-Sets or radio from Clone and early mixes from WBMX, collecting of old Chicago and Italo-Disco records or when they just talk about something or sit in a train or watch people or think about some nice girl, this is all good material for our boys to flesh out a track.
