DJ Snake looks back on label’s releases this year in new ‘Classe of 2018’ compilation
2018 was a banner year for DJ Snake. The Parisian powerhouse scripted Spotify history as his 2016 single, “Let Me Love You” surpassed 1 billion streams. DJ Snake became the fifth artist on Spotify to have two tracks garner a respective 1 billion streams each. His collaboration with Major Lazer and MØ on 2015’s “Lean On” was the first cut of Snake’s catalog to first collect the seminal 1 billion streams. Spotify stats aside, DJ Snake’s influence was also felt on the charts, vis-à-vis the producer’s work with Cardi B, Ozuna, and Selena Gomez on “Taki Taki.” DJ Snake’s presence in the electronic sphere this year was that of a particularly fluid nature, evidenced in a Spotify milestone, felt among the charts, and even more wide-ranging, perceptible in the Frenchman’s establishment of his very own label, Premiere Classe.
With the end of 2018, Premiere Classe will concurrently conclude its first full year of production, and shed its fledgling status. DJ Snake commemorates Premiere Classe’s inaugural year of music publishing and distribution with a free new compilation, entitled Classe of 2018. Featuring work from 4B and TEEZ, Chace, SAYMYNAME, Mercer, and more, Classe of 2018 is a compact collection of Premiere Classe’s cuts, and as the compilation so audibly imparts, Premiere Classe’s introductory year of operation was particularly potent.
