UP AND COMING CHILDREN How can you stand yourself? You’re so uptight Nothing is ever pure Nothing is ever right Well I’m here to say it won’t bring us down ‘Cuz we’re the forthcoming babies and this is the new town So dig us… Up and coming children Don’t lost the feeling Up and coming children Don’t lost the feeling You think you know glamour Think you’ve seen it all Danced on every floor Walked every ball Well you don’t fool no one ‘Cuz we’re all stars tonight And we’re on our way to the garden of delight Up and coming children Don’t lose the feeling Up and coming children Don’t lost the feeling

150% You pick, prod And get on my damn nerves Until it just ain’t cute Your love’s got me trapped in a corner baby Till I blow my cool I don’t wanna second guess Reactions, distractions My satisfaction takes Takes precedence There’s not contest So heed my warning Here it comes, sing Go forth and coming back Ain’t no need to pretend So step off or I’ll react 150% What you do to me So damn good you know I ain’t gonna let you go But all this play trying To take me away I’ll keep ‘em at bay but First I gotta say Go forth and coming back Ain’t no need to pretend So step off or I’ll react 150%

NOTHING TO YOURSELF You can’t hide your desire This love You won’t get from no one else We can get much higher I gotcha You can’t keep nothing to yourself Now the game’s getting slightly tired All this cat and mouse You’re a terrible liar I gotcha I know you see my house It’s no use To stay on the loose Why fight it? Don’t deny it Won’t take too much time For me To get inside your mind You’re an open book So lemme take a look Is it 411 or off the hook? You can’t hold your desire This love You won’t get from no one else We can get much higher I gotcha You can’t keep nothing to yourself

Phantom Voice Desire’s got the best of me Like a dog in a cage What say we skip the show, baby And head straight backstage? I gotta work fast ‘cuz I’m sure it won’t last You out there all alone With your fine ass Don’t leave me empty handed Like a broke hustler with no class Here comes that phantom voice Someone pulling my strings I ain’t got no more choice I’m a slave to your stuffs and things Who’s next on the monitor? Who takes your place? I can’t edge all day long, baby And never finish no race Don’t leave me hanging Don’t put me off So much time passing And still so much to show off Here comes that phantom voice Someone pulling my strings I ain’t got no more choice I’m a slave to your stuffs and things

about

Random Records presents UP AND COMING CHILDREN, dedicated to the kids; those with a fresh attitude, new on the scene, ready to take over and push things forward.

Tells Snax, “I called a session with Alessandro and Jules of The Snackettes at Jules’ studio for a freeform jam session. What resulted was a ragged yet tight dance floor treat with unusual chord progressions I wouldn’t have come up with on my own. The lyrics concern my constant irritation with purists. See, in any scene, there are always those who think only they know the proper or right ways of doing things...whether it be how to enjoy themselves, how to throw a party, how to produce, or hell, even how to dance. The essence of being Up And Coming means bucking up against all that snobbery. The Children say, feel free to languish in your tired old ways, sukkas. We’ll be continuing to shake things up, forever on our way to the garden of delight.”

Also featured on this latest EP are three new tracks which rock the floor in ever more exciting ways. “150%” is a soul stomper, espousing the joys of being a hot head over a hard beat. “Nothing To Yourself” breaks it down to slower, but no less grinding, territory, as Snax assures his next lover that resistance is futile. Finally, “Phantom Voice” recalls Snax’s earlier work, emerging from the sleazier corners of the world waving his P.Funk flag high.

Snax also has the pleasure of presenting remixes for “Children” from two equally legendary sources. Hard Ton brings an ecstatic 90’s house vibe to the table with a shimmering re-sing by larger than life vocalist Max. On the darker side come Per QX and Elias Bravo, whose sound recalls London’s super party of the moment Gutterslut, where Per is resident.

Here's the"Up and Coming" buzz...

MIXMAG - "Cheeky cowbells, grainy disco synths and even non-cheesy string sections are all cleverly arranged into well formed songs with jazzy overtones."

DIEGO CORTEZ SALAS (DC Salas / Polar) - 'Phantom Voice is so fuuuunky! '

RICARDO BAEZ (Gomma/ Toy Tonics) - 'Up and Coming children is great! superb hard ton & Per QX - ELias Bravo remix too! well done! Thanks RB'

SAMMY FEDY (LeSale) - 'Great return of SNAX! Really like Up & Coming children and the remixes, but my fav is the laid back Nothing To Yourself'

TOM FINDLAY (Groove Armada) - 'Hard Ton rmx is brilliant, lost classic vibes.'

LUKE SOLOMON (Classic / Freaks / Music For Freaks) - 'love love love this '

OLIVER JONES (Skream) - 'AmazinG!'

ELIE EIDELMAN (Jack Off / Sweatlodge) - 'love snax! great release... '

SEVERINO PANZETTA (Horse Meat Disco) - 'Per QX rmx is great. Hard Ton, too.'

TRAVIS JEPPESEN (ArtForum) - '(Up And Coming Children is) the definitive disco track of the 2010s.'
