DJ Snake has been teasing what might be his biggest collaboration since his work with Justin Bieber a few years ago. This time around the French superstar has enlisted help from Selena Gomez, Ozuna and Cardi B. With such a densely packed line up of all-stars on the bill, the entire world has been hungry
Japanese dance music star Masayoshi Iimori has been popping up on playlists and remix packs all year long, including high-profile takes for RL Grime and Nick Catchdubs. The bass house producer rides in on that momentum with a grimy new single, arriving as the fourth ever release from DJ Snake‘s own PREMIERE CLASSE records. Aptly titled “Flow,” the track is an explosive combo of modernized dance floor electro and playful arcade-game flavor.
“Flow” cranks it up to 11 almost immediately, and maintains the ballistic cruising speed all the way till the end. The mortal combat mode synth stabs catapult the track towards bit crushed, searing drops. The cut borrows from bass house and nostalgic electro, then douses it in Iimori’s trademark flair for the weird and wacky. The artist’s style flashes equal hints of Dillon Francis madness and TNGHT distorted punch. Amazingly, both Masayoshi Iimori and the track’s newly founded label home are just getting started — but both entities smashed the gas from the jump, and show no signs of slowing down.
For seasoned DJ Snake fans, this tune might sound a bit familiar as it debuted at Ultra Miami during DJ Snake’s incredible set. Since that point, it has been heard here and there with no official release date. Eptic doubled down on the hype around the track by playing it out during his truly wild
The electronic world’s most celebrated music festival, Ultra, rang in the fifth anniversary of its Japanese installment last weekend, September 15-17 at its brand new home in Tokyo Odaiba Ultra Park.
The wildly attended Ultra Japan stands as testament to the EDM phenomenon’s sweeping, worldwide presence. Standout performances from the weekend include that of Oliver Heldens, Armin van Buuren, and Axwell Λ Ingrosso: all repeat Ultra offenders. Ultra Worldwide’s ubiquitous presence extends to 25 different countries, across several continents. Due to its ever-increasing popularity, the event has stretched from its two-day beginnings, into a full-fledged three-day soiree.
DJ Snake announced he’s returning to the US this fall for two very special shows. New York City’s Avant Gardner hosts the French superstar DJ October 26, and on October 31, he’ll be at Los Angeles’ legendary Shrine Expo Hall. DJ Snake is throwing two massive Halloween parties in the US — tickets for both shows go on sale September 14.
The headlining shows will be Snake’s only territory headline appearances of the year, and each show is expected to feature state-of-the-art production. Snake’s coastal Halloween shakedowns come after a memorable year for the Parisian hitmaker. He partied with the World Cup victors, DJed at the Arc De Triomphe, has two songs on Spotify that have amassed over 1 billion streams, and is the ninth DJ in the world on Billboard Dance‘s 100 Artists of 2018. Each show promises to be an exciting affair, stay tuned for supporting talent as Halloween inches closer.
North Coast Music Festival was forced to shut its doors early last night due to lightning strikes in the area. It was out of their control and a condition that must have been met in order for them to keep their permit. Fans were even more upset when the skies cleared and barely any serious
For anyone still sleeping on Chace, it’s about time to wake up. The Shanghai-based pop/dance prodigy has exploded onto the scene on Yellow Claw‘s Barong Family imprint, and really hasn’t looked back. Since his 2017 breakout, the emerging wunderkind has already landed an EP on Mad Decent, guested for a bonafide Diplo & Friends mix, and even launched his own release imprint, HOWSHOOD. If that wasn’t impressive enough, Chace also became the first ever Chinese DJ to perform at Tomorrowland. Oh yeah, and he’s done it all before his 20th birthday.
The artist’s meteoric rise continues with a binge-worthy house cut titled “Never,” arriving via DJ Snake‘s own PREMIERE CLASSE label. Tight piano chords and pitchy vocal cuts are the main ingredients of a toe-tapping tour de force, with deep sub power and shuffling house percussion keeping pace. Chace does a top-notch job of letting only the most important sounds do the talking on this one, and the result on “Never” is a pop-injected house hit that sounds polished beyond the young up-and-comer’s years.
As long as there has been pop music, there have been boy bands. But ask any American about the “boy band era” and they’ll probably assume you’re talking about the turn of the millennium, when Backstreet Boys and NSYNC led an insurgent army of meticulously styled hormone-activating ensembles. These dreamboat teams were the predominant unit … More »
DJ Snake‘s collection of releases just got even more diverse thanks to a new collaboration with Gashi and French Montana. The track is titled “Creep On Me,” and its radio-hit potential is apparent with this stacked line up of collaborators. Gashi has been teasing the release on his socials, building excitement for the unexpected trio’s collaboration. A smooth opening highlights Gashi’s vocals, and Snake’s production touch becomes apparent with a Caribbean-chord infused electronic drop. The track is the perfect tune to close out summer with its downtempo chords and infectious vocals.
DJ Snake has been busy preparing for his sophomore album release, and this collaboration serves as a continuation of Snake’s diverse collection of artists he has enlisted for the compilation. He is working with everyone from Yellow Claw to Cardi B on the forthcoming album, and “Creep On Me” only builds everyone’s excitement for what is to come.
Jauz has been relatively quiet and cryptic with his social media movements lately, though the LA-based producer has now broken his silence with an exciting update. Fans can now move up to the edge of their seats with the official announcement of Jauz’ upcoming concept album The Wise and The Wicked, set to be released on August 31.
The “Squad Out” producer isn’t going with your average 12-track compilation and calling it a day, either. There will be 23 tracks on the album, and Jauz has structured them to fall within different ‘chapters’ because there will be three overarching themes to describe the album’s complexion. Jauz explained how and why he organized the album the way he did, stating,
“When I’m writing music, half of my brain wants to write fun, crazy bangers for parties, clubs, [festivals], etc. This is represented by ‘The Wicked.’ The other half of the time, I want to write emotional, intelligent, experimental music that feeds the ‘inner-artist’ in myself, which is represented by ‘The Wise.’ The middle ground, which is where I strive to really be, is a blend of the melodic, emotional parts of my music paired with high energy drops and climaxes. This is represented by ‘The United.’”
Collaborators on the album include Ducky, Krewella, and Adventure Club among many more. This is in addition to DJ Snake, Snails, and Example from releases “Gassed Up,” “Motherfuckers,” and “In The Zone” respectively that have already made their way out to fans in previous releases. The final track on the album, titled “Super Fly” featuring 666, is the last single that will be released before the full album is available.
