The Chicago based DJ and producer Ian Snow, who was formerly known as SNOWMASS, is releasing a slick EP this week. He has been snapped up by FiXT Noir, which is part of the FiXT umbrella, and was set up by the artist Celldweller and champions new music from the likes of Teddy Killerz, Blosso and Too Kind.
With “Tektronik” and “Back Off” already released, Snow adds “Dissolution” and “Anarchy” to the epic tracklist – with the latter being a collaboration with Australian producer KYB. Both strongly powered tunes with wandering builds and expansive beats, they are both likely to get multiple plays at this year’s Spring Awakening: Autumn Equinox, which Ian Snow will be playing soon.
He says of “Dissolution”: “It’s funny that the name of the EP ended up being Dissolution because I never thought that track would see the light of day. To be honest, I had almost completely given up on releasing any of my mid-tempo bass music when FiXT initially reached out. After rebranding from SNOWMASS to Ian Snow, I also changed the direction of my sound, and prepared to sacrifice a lot of music in order to stick to my new lane. However, this genre of music isn’t represented enough across electronic record labels, and I decided that I wanted these tracks to be heard, so I was more than happy to sign this EP to FiXT Noir. Big thank you to Celldweller and his team for believing in these songs.”
