DJ Snake

The internet generation continues to glamorize and monetize ratchet culture. I’m happy they’ve at least requested the assistance of a Godfather to show them how its properly done.  If you’re going to #twerk, #turnup or include the iconic phrase “what” in your hashtag, you need to pay tribute to Lil Jon. To all you 90’s babies, Lil Jon is this epic dance instructor that taught us back in the 2000’s how to “Get Low,” take “Shots” and shake it like a “Salt Shaker.”

Your good friend Diplo worked with him a few years back and has now passed the torch, or at least the acapella file, to DJ Snake. A fellow Grammy-nominee, DJ Snake hails from Paris and continues to ride the international trap train.

His “Bird Machine” track, released earlier this year on Mad Decent‘s Jeffree’s imprint, not only features some of the best artwork I’ve seen in a while, it makes you want to twerk, pop-lock-and-drop-it , do “The Dip” and Cat Daddy simultaneously. His latest “Turn Down For What” beat out everyone for the last party anthem of the summer. And possibly the best title. This one is sure to hold us over til’ Christmas.

Preview DJ Snake and Lil Jon’s “Turn Down For What” here.

Also check out his mix for Diplo and Friends BBC Radio 1 Show.
