The once-gradual heightening of this U.K. production duo's profile turned into a dramatic upward shot in late 2015. That's when they released "All My Friends," a bleary detoxification anthem, replete with group chorus featuring Tinashe the singer and Chance the Rapper. It went Top Five on a few national pop charts and eventually won over the U.S., where it reached the Top Five of Billboard's club chart the following May. This four-song EP, which adds collaborations with emergent rappers and singers (and rapper-singers) Anderson Paak, Tory Lanez, and Malika, demonstrates Snakehips' strong grasp of contemporary rap and pop styles.
