Snik/verb: to cut, snip or nick. Dr. Snik brings you original dark, spooky and eclectic electronic music and sound.
Dr. Snik has risen from the grave to bring you spooky grooves from the Netherworld. A collection of song/soundscapes brought from the Pits of Hell, the Dark Jungles of the Mind and the Outer Reaches of the Galaxy...
Dr. Snik is the alter ego of Justin Snikkar.
Justin has been a professional bass player for over 30 years playing many styles and playing live half-way around the world.
Justin based in Toronto, Canada, has written music for as long as he's played music and has developed into writing horror/Halloween and dark music in the vein of John Carpenter, Walter/Wendy Carlos and The Dark Brothers.
Justin has teamed up recently with Mitch Markowitz (a.k.a Super Hippy) from the early 70's TV show The Hilarious House of Frightenstein featuring Vincent Price, and Sara "Chibi" Taylor from the Canadian gothic rock band The Birthday Massacre in a Halloween party song that crosses the Leslie Gore classic It's My Party, Too Sexy For My Car by Right Said Fred and Rob Zombie.
A video is available on YouTube.
Justin has also teamed up with Halloween King J.C. Greening from Tuscon, Arizona since 2018 producing Halloween music, sounds and stories.
Halloween Haunts & Terror Tales Volume I: Trick 'R Treating for Children (2018) was featured in Rue Morgue Magazine in the No 1. spot for Needful Things in issue 188 (May/June 2019).
A new soundtrack is being scored by Justin for Vol 3 coming this Oct!
Dr. Snik's music is featured on year-round Halloween radio stations DeadAir.co and HalloweenRadio.net and has written some radio jingles for the online L.A. Halloween Radio Station DeadAir.co in 2021.
Justin has recently recorded the main intro/outro theme music for the New Orleans based radio show The Outer Realm with Michelle Desrochers and Amelia Pisano.
