Up-and-coming hip hop producer DJ Snake scored one of the biggest hits of 2014 with the Lil Jon-featured banger "Turn Down for What", so it's no surprise that his live show is one of the year's hottest tickets. Snake's instantly recognizable blend of skittering trap beats and insanely catchy synth hooks have struck a major chord with audiences, and his masterful buildups, breakdowns, and drops have earned him a live reputation that matches his impressive studio credentials. Whether he's laying down original cuts or treating fans to thumping remixes of Kanye West and AlunaGeorge, Snake always delivers seriously dance-worthy sets on his must-see tours.
Paris-based DJ and producer DJ Snake, a.k.a. William Grigahcine, made his professional debut behind the scenes as a producer on Lady Gaga's 2011 sophomore album Born This Way. His work on that release earned him a Grammy nomination for Album of the Year in 2012, foreshadowing the success that would soon follow with his own material. After releasing a string of acclaimed remixes in 2013 for artists like Duck Sauce and Major Lazer, Snake made his debut on charts around the world with "Turn Down For What", a ubiquitous club anthem featuring vocals by Lil John. The song topped the US Dance/Electronic Songs chart and reached the Top 20 in his native France, launching him to international stardom. Since then, Snake has collaborated with legendary producer Diplo, released the track "Get Low" with Dillon Francis, and been named a "2014 Artist to Watch" by Fox Weekly. With appearances at HARD Summer Music Festival and the Mad Decent Block Party tour rounding out his 2014, Snake has cemented his status as one of the hottest new producers in the game.
