Sanderson had already started work on Snatch 2 when he met David Jackman in spring 1980. Jackman was drafted in to help with the compilation of the tape, with the two creating the loops and assembling the tape in Sanderson's basement flat in Paddington.

As with Snatch 1 the tape cover lists the names of the artists but not the track titles, further details were included on a small booklet sent out with the tape. Here are some further notes.
