Magnetic Premiere: Cut Snake - Santa Monica

Cheers and a well-deserved toast for Cut Snake's essential California house track.

I've been anticipating this tune since Cut Snake first dropped it last December during their Mixmag Lab LA event. Lots of producers have tried their hands at making West Coast anthems during their careers — Destructo and Claude VonStroke, just to name a couple from the past year — but “Santa Monica” makes for an essential California house tune. It captures the distinct freeness and vibrance of the city, matching its energy with a bassline that moves at the speed of light.

The track closes Cut Snake's upcoming EP, Life's a Beach, set to be released this Friday, November 6. The EP brings a well-rounded suite of tracks together, ranging from the suave lightness and beauty of tunes like “Echo” and “Paradise” to the hardier, hotter jams such as “Santa Monica”. The duo has returned to their native Oceania to celebrate the EP's release with a string of shows across the continent:
