In many ways, Snacker is similar to Speedy J's rude boy rework of Marco Bailey's Kract. Both tracks fiercly pound onward, with massive sounds and sharp 4x4 percussion, both are conceived in a manner that tension is skillfully withheld up around halfway through the track, when everything breaks down, but then comes the grand disappointment... Instead of delivering a high octane climax, as he did on his remix of Point Break or the uber classic Krekc monster, Paap & Literon rebuild to the exact same sound pattern we were treated to prior to the break.
The sound is great, high production standards are delivered, as one would only expect from Speedy J, but the tune on its own just doesn't work. It's a fabulous DJ transition tool, it teases you into believing that something awesome is bound to happen, but it never does. Useful, competent party material, fun to play around and mix with, but if you want similar stuff where mr. Paap really unloads his skills, check out his Electric Deluxe 12" on Plus8!

Snacker is the typical Speedy-J-makes-techno kind of track. Hard hitting bassdrum, overdriven snare and over-the-top reverb. Efficient, perhaps, but, above all, overused.
His productions, although very refined, have been rather similar since 2000-2001 and have become predictable, or worse, formulaic. Where is the innovation from G-Spot and Public Energy #1?

Next, please.
