  • Description For their third album, Snuff Crew chose to work more conceptually than they had on their previous releases (their eponymous first album Snuff Crew in 2009, and Jack 2 in 2010) on labels such as Killekill, International Deejay Gigolo, Playhouse, SCI+TEC, Rush Hour, and Skylax. Different methods were employed to create this record. They scored their songs and arrangements, and new influences took hold. It became more about writing songs than producing tracks. The whole process of shaping the album took far longer than expected, especially as it grew to include such world class guests as Tyree Cooper, Rachel Row, Kim Ann Foxman and Hard Ton. Snuff Crew had already released remixes for Ellen Allien and Dance Disorder with BPitch Control, and they knew they were the right label for this project.Chicago House and Acid House remain important to the creative work of Snuff Crew. Yet, on this third album piano-driven 90s US-House, dark Oldschool Electro and Hip-House are strong influences as well. It was easy for the duo to agree on the title Behind The Masks. It is important for the Crew to give deeper insights into their work and vision of their music, even if the masks will remain an essential trademark in their popular live shows.The Crew revealed a love for creating melodies that stay with you in their remix for the Fantasy Girl cover by Billie Ray Martin & Hard Ton, in collaboration with Robert Owens (released on their own label Snuff Trax). This influence can also be felt on this third Snuff Crew album, Behind The Masks.
