In 1995 JB (AKA Jon Barnet) was working at Good Looking Records, and it was here that he met Phil Source (AKA Philip Aslett) who was an artist on the label. It wasn’t until a few years later when the pair's paths crossed again that they bonded musically on a fundamental level. So started a musical partnership that has been evolving ever since.
The duo, now titled Snow Leopards have both been a major part of UK dance scene for over 20 years. JB’s roots reach back to the Acid House era and he’s traveled along the dance path ever since, not only contributing to each movement but accommodating them by putting on music events worldwide. Phil Source much like JB is a dance music shapeshifter, having contributed to the Deep House, Tech House, Techno and D&B music scenes. Phil made his start in the duo Source Direct in 1992 but decided to take the solo path in 2000 to focus on new sonic ventures.
Snow Leopards sound is an amalgamation of 30 years of the underground dance scene and countless musical sub-genres. The duo draws influence from what is happening around them, whether that was the old school dance floors of their youth or the new and interesting sounds coming through now. They have cherrypicked the best elements of dance music, given it a stir and reinterpreted it for the modern age, allowing for the most eclectic and exciting new electronic sounds.
Now releasing an album that has been 8 years in the making, the boys are set on expanding the listener's mind and breaking down boundaries of genre and sound. Each track brings a different vibe, emotion, and frequency. Snow Leopards don’t want you to get too comfortable, their music demands to be played loud.
