The Snakestyle project began in 2005 with a series of demo recordings that gained the interest of Millennium Records, leading to a self-titled album and appearances on several compilations. After appearing on the compilation 'Future Memories' on Interchill Records with the track 'Neutral Buoyancy', the album 'Turning Point' was picked up by Paul Croan of Alex Tronic Records. Many collaborations with other artists soon followed.

Snakestyle (Matthew Leigh Embleton) and Tove Aradala (High Priestess and Daughter of the North Winds) continue their collaboration and exploration of electronic music and ancient northern traditions. 'I Dance the Circle a Wheel of Year' may be recognisable to some keen listeners, having been sampled in their 'Nordic Patterns' album track 'Hoburgsgubben'. Here the song is given the full Snakestyle treatment, complete with a 3/4 groove with addictive spaced out percussion, deep bass, and swirling synthesisers, including an instrumental version, and the original vocal recording.

Snakestyle aka Matthew Leigh Embleton has just completed a series of remixes of Alex Tronic and Shuna Lovelle's 'The Strangest Times', and continues here with this track entitled 'Glacies Dissolvit', a deliciously intense 6/8 groove continuing his theme of inspiration and imagery of frozen northern landscapes, with sounds of ice melting and shattering set against hypnotic and addictive beats, and warm atmospheric backing vocals. Ice cold headspace music with intelligence and style.
Snakestyle aka Matthew Leigh Embleton returns with this track entitled 'Aurora Borealis'. Inspired by a trip to Reykjavik in Iceland, it's an upbeat groove awash with Snakestyle's trademark of luscious swirling analogue synth sounds, warm bass, and ice cold mechanical mastermind rhythmical programming. Definitely one for stargazing on those cold winter nights.
Track 02 - Reaching This Point (Demo Version) - 02:03
Snakestyle has reached this point, ten years after his breakthrough album Turning Point, and a world of musical exploration in that time, numerous production and remix projects with a wide array of different artists, this track Reaching This Point with its ambient sonic electronic mastery speaks of drawing on a wealth of musical experiences, and doing what he does best, with luscious music landscapes, irresistible beats, and mellifluous melody, you are invited to reach this point with him.
Snakestyle (aka Matthew Leigh Embleton) returns from a long break from the recording studio to bring us the Looking Forward EP. A soundtrack of reflection, change and moving on, the title track is seven and a half minutes of classic Snakestyle chilled out electronic bliss, accompanied on either side by Lost Contact, Parts 1 & 2 with swirling beatless ambient synth soundscapes of contemplation. Snakestyle is back... and looking forward.
16/03/2018 - Alex Tronic & Shuna Lovelle - Feels Like Falling (Snakestyle's Balearic Vibe), (Alex Tronic Records)
Snakestyle (aka Matthew Leigh Embleton) returns to the studio fresh from working with vocalist Minnie Rogers on their collaboration 'Maelstrom' to produce this track 'Misunderstood', a stripped-down down-beat retro-electro R'n'B flavoured groove, complete with sublimely gliding and floating analogue synth melodies, tight crisp beats, and abstract sound collage effects, sounding something like a cinematic aftermath moody outro theme for a non-existent cop or detective drama on tv.
Snakestyle's first solo project and full length album, featuring Mike Embleton on guitar on 'Sunrise Dub', and voice recordings by Liliana Arboleda Medina (Tuning In) and Anna Starovoytova (Extransience)
