Sneaky Sound System is a Sydney-based Australian dance music group consisting of Black Angus (Angus McDonald) (chief songwriter and producer), MC Double D (Daimon Downey), Connie Mitchell (vocals), Peter Dolso (guitar), Jono Sloan (bass), and Felix Bloxsom (drums).
In 2004, Black Angus and MC Double D decided to start their own record label, Whack Recordings. After hooking up with recording engineer/producer Peter Dolso, the band set up a studio in Bondi Beach called “The House of Whack”, and set about making its own music. Sneaky Sound System’s first release was “Hip Hip Hooray“, which quickly gained support from local DJs and radio stations alike, becoming a cult hit.
