The label Snatch! Records was founded in 2010 by Stefano Miele, better known by Riva Starr. It moves between house and techno, finding the midpoint of dancefloor approach and quality. The main purpose of the label is to introduce new talent and also launch works from more established artists who go beyond in their productions. In 2013 was born the little sister: Snatch! OFF, more focused on tools for the dancefloor.
The release policy is quite simple, the most important thing is the music, without worrying about the ep name, only numbering them. For the artwork they use the logo, adding the number of each reference with a marker, giving it a very urban air.
On Snatch! Records have released producers with much caliber. The first year we hear works of Kolombo & Lou Lou Players, David Keno, Thomas Schumacher, Tapesh & Maximiljan, Pirupa, Ramon Tapia or Riva Starr himself. 2011 was the year that Snatch! Records was established as tech house label reference in Europe, publishing Dj Sneak, Butch, Adam Port and Steve Mac, reaching its peak in 2012 with Fatboy Slim and Riva Starr collaboration, creating the Get Naked theme.
