It’s been a minute sine we’ve caught up with DJ Snake…
The French hit-maker announced earlier in the year that the follow-up to his 2016 full-length debut Encore is underway, and given the diversity of singles we’ve gotten from the French DJ-producer thus far in 2018 (“Magenta Riddim,” “Made In China” and “Let’s Get Ill“), fans can expect the unexpected.
On his latest single “Maradona Riddim” with Nigerian singer and songwriter Niniola, DJ Snake continues to sample sounds from across the world. The chilled-out groove laces Niniola‘s seductive vocals across a Caribbean-inspired backdrop with tropical undertones and a catchy electronic synth progression. “Ooh ni ki n la’tan, o ni maa la’tan/ Ooh ni ki n d’oju mi, o lo maa la pa,” Niniola croons on the chorus.
The track is easily the most radio-ready single we’ve heard from Snake in awhile, and makes for an excellent poolside playlist addition. I’m totally here for it – Listen below!
