Info from Sneaky's MySpace page :
So.........for me 2008 has been a year of creating and nurturing ideas in a new environment, attempting to learn Deutsch, and trying to be as open as possible to the influences that might come along here in my new hometown of Berlin. Over the year I have been workin my skinny ass off making tunes and now have a lot to throw out to you good people. I am buzzing with excitement and I see this end of year break as a perfectly timed calm before the Sneaky storm;)
2009 BRING IT ON!!!
ALBUM : My "Feel Like a King…Pluck a String" album is now set to be released March 16th on the Big Chill Label. the cds have finally arrived from manufacture after many hold ups beyond my control. Alles Klar now;) My vinyl headed brethren will be pleased to know that there is to be a small run of 7inches featuring the title track + killer remix by Robot Koch set to coincide with the release.
LIVE : The new SNEAKY LIVE show will soon be out n about wobbling soundsystems. If any of you are going to be in Berlin mid February I will be holding my first showcase gig and Berlin album launch party @ Lovelite, Friedrichschain on 21st Feb 2009.
OTHER NEWS : Fresh off the baking tray is a remix I've just finished for the JAZZANOVA remix competion. It's quite a departure from what you might expect from me but I'm really pleased with it and it'd be great to know what you guys think;) Jazzanova - i can see (Sneaky's Please Believe the Bass Remix)

Biography :
Classically trained musician Sneaky realised the need to search for his own musical identity at a very young age. After many years of formal training on cello and double bass, and the completion of a music degree in his hometown of Manchester, Sneaky became involved with forward thinking club nights Headfunk and Eardrum alongside a young drummer James Ford (Simian Mobile Disco) and resident DJs Mr Scruff, Andy Votel and Mark Rae. By 1997 Sneaky was heavily involved with Mark Rae's Manchester based label Grand Central as a live session musician touring extensively around Europe and Australia with Rae & Christian.

A session with fellow Mancunian, Mr Scruff, in 1999 produced the cheeky dance-floor classic "Get a Move On" and the following year Sneaky formed Fingathing with fellow R&C band member and turntablist Peter Parker, after jamming together in the downtime of the R&C rehearsals.

7 years of worldwide touring, 3 albums, several singles and EPs released through Grand Central and Ninja Tune, Sneaky is now itching to make his solo mark.

Sneaky will perform at The Big Chill 2009.
