The concept of a doppelganger isn’t anything new in the world of film. We’ve been accustomed to what would play out if there was another exact replica of ourselves.

2014 saw production duo Snakehips release their latest single ‘Days With You’ feat Sinead Harnett alongside them regularly hitting the top spot on the hype-machine with their faultless remixes (Banks, Raury, The Weeknd, Wild Belle, Bondax).
