Zoon Van Snook
is the alias of Bristol beat smith, Alec Snook. He's been giggin' about the UK the last few years, finding support from the likes of Fujiya and Miyagi, I Am Kloot, and BBC Radio 1's Zane Lowe. His music is a mash-up of both familiar and more obscure musical elements. With no vocals, it's mood music in a waya soundtrack element to your story, or in the case of his inventive stop motion video for "Eem Yorn", someone else's. Have a peek at the colorful, video premiere.
