Venum Sound


Kris Snakes & Monkey Harris are the partners behind Venum Sound: two lifelong friends from Essex, they started their humble beginnings cutting their teeth in the ’80s hip-hop scene.

Late nights were spent with fingers poised on the record button, listening to the early days of Kiss FM: Coldcut Jazzie B, Norman & Joey Jay, Giles Peterson & the legendary David Rodigan set the standards of underground music. Drawing from funk, soul, hip-hop and reggae through to the early drum & bass scene and beyond, they took those early influences that were laid out before them to form the foundations for the future.
