about

'Hands Dirty' is the second single from Snax's Shady Lights LP. Snax explains it's creation: ‘One night at the Berghain Club here in Berlin I was venturing upstairs to the second floor Panorama Bar. On my way up I decided to record the transformative sound one experiences in between the two dance floors when making that journey. I recorded walking up the stairs and into Panorama, brought that file to my studio and that became the basis of the track. It’s the first loop you hear. I sprinkled that with samples I got from the Berlin Philharmonic, sat it on top of a deep rhythm section and voila, the track wrote itself. Lyrically, I was reflecting on the skewed and distorted ways we all relate to each other on dating and social apps, especially hook-up apps for gay men like Grindr. This kind of ‘connection’ we make with each other can be very elusive indeed, and it all comes at the expense of doing the work of actually leaving your room, becoming part of the world, having a real conversation with someone and perhaps taking it further. It’s so easy to hide behind profiles, screen names, selfies and chatting. Who dares to actually get their Hands Dirty?

'Hands Dirty' gets a rework from Bobby Duran, a New York City based DJ who got his start remixing two tracks for none other than Beyoncé herself. Duron is ‘making his mark in the music world, creatively merging Chicago House, NY underground, dark progressive house, sensuous Jazz and Ambient coined seductive House’.

Also on board is Bobby Starrr, a Berlin-based House DJ/ producer and co-resident of the monthly House party e·man·ci·pate at Tresor , ‘I try to sound fresh and focus on the core of the groove I’m organically moving towards,’ says Bobby. ‘Some drums from classic drum machines, a dubby bassline, edits from live instruments with more a full on arrangement than a DJ Tool approach, It’s House’.

Track Name: Hands Dirty
HANDS DIRTY


I won’t wait for all your stars to align
So much body language but still can’t read your sign
All this hocus pocus messing with my focus
Texting got nothing on us
We’re having trouble loading more guys

So get your hands dirty
Get on the real
It’s so nervy to do what you feel
We’re past flirty
It’s time for a deal
So get your hands dirty
And get back on the real

I don’t need you to tell me what’s what
When I get to 1000 then we can talk about slut
Spare me all the drama
This ain’t no fate or karma
Gossip ain’t that juicy
The singer gets the pussy
The singer gets the pussy

So get your hands dirty
Get on the real
It’s so nervy to do what you feel
We’re past flirty
It’s time for a deal
So get your hands dirty
And get back on the real
Track Name: Hands Dirty (Bobby Starrr Freakyness Vocal Mix)
