DJ Snake x Beats By Dre. Hear His Story.


If you’ve hit a club or turned on the radio over the course of the last few years, there’s a good chance you’ve been inundated with DJ Snake’s songs. From his 2013 smash, “Turn Down for What,” to his latest hits, “Broken Summer” and “A Different Way,” the Paris-born DJ/producer has certainly made a name for himself in a relatively short amount of time, and it’s become just about impossible to escape his music in 2017.  But like most people who encounter major success, all of this didn’t just happen overnight for DJ Snake. He’s been toiling away at the music thing for many years now, and while he doesn’t grant a ton of interviews to talk about his rise to the top, he decided to share his story in the latest “Above the Noise” spot produced by Beats By Dre.

In it, DJ Snake opens up about what it was like growing up in the part of Paris that you don’t always see on TV. He also speaks about how he got one of his first big breaks, and he touches on why he goes so hard for his city and, to a larger degree, his country when he’s putting together a new song or performing at a live show. The video includes a snippet of “A Different Way,” featuring Lauv, which was released at the end of September. Watch the video to see what DJ Snake is all about and to find out why he believes he’s only just getting started.

DJ Snake vs. Hot 97.

I never thought I’d see DJ Snake on Hot 97 for some odd reason, (but him doing an interview on the station makes perfect sense). But check out this in depth interview where he discusses how he got started, how Redman was originally supposed to be on ‘Turn Down For What’, working with Lady Gaga on ‘Born This Way’, and show’s off an exclusive DJ Premier remix of AlunaGeorge ‘You Know You Like It’.

Dillon Francis & DJ Snake – Get Low (Official Video).

DJ Snake skyrocketed to club music icon after the release of ‘Turn Down For What’ featuring Lil Jon, and shows no signs of slowing down.  Dilion Francis and Mr. Snake teamed up recently for a second club banger titled “Get Low”, and you can check out the official video below.

The Greatest Music Video Ever Released.


IMG_0327When we say ‘The greatest video of all time’, we’re only half serious.  When it comes to the history of music videos, there are entries like Michael Jackson’s “Thriller”, (or “Remember The Time”) that were more short films than what we typically consider music videos now a days.  There are also those music videos that inspired us, like Christina Agulara’s “Beautiful”, videos that reminded us what innocent love was, (Rihanna ft. Drake – What’s My Name), and videos that blew our minds visually, like Michael and Janet Jackson’s “Scream”… the most expensive music video of all time (to date).  But Lil Jon and DJ Snake have pushed the boundary in an entirely different direction.  The brand new “Turn Down For What” video has none of the aforementioned traits.  It doesn’t necessarily inspire us, reassure our confidence, or change our outlook on our own lives.  However, this video is still one of the most original, ratchet, beautiful, hilarious, and memorable pieces of music-related film we’ve ever seen.  It starts on a roof in some third-world country, and moves down floor by floor as more people catch the “turn up”.  The party grows the more floors people punch through, until the police catch the turn up.  Check the method below…. PREPARE YOURSELVES.
