When news first circulated of DJ Snake‘s his debut album landing at Interscope Records, the question immediately arose as to what direction the multi-faceted producer would take. In the commercial market, DJ Snake is primarily known as the Parisian hitmaker behind records like the remix-turned-original “You Know You Like It” and party essential with Lil Jon “Turn Down For What,” while long-time Snake fans have followed the trap superstar from his Mad Decent days with “Bird Machine” up until present day.
It seems DJ Snake is finally ready to release the first taste of his highly anticipated LP coming this winter with “Middle,” featuring British vocalist Bipolar Sunshine. Right from the effervescent introductory piano chords, it’s clear that “Middle” was designed to follow a similar path of “Lean On” and “You Know You Like” it up the Billboard charts. DJ Snake expertly swirls a tasteful blend of wispy percussion and jungle-colored vocal melodies around Bipolar Sunshine’s tranquilizing voice to breed yet another chilled-out instant hit.
