French DJ and multi-platinum producer DJ Snake has linked up with bass music maverick Crankdat for the pulsating new single “Big Bang.” The track is a prime example of Snake’s ability to seamlessly blend genres, boasting colossal builds, whiplash-inducing synths, and dramatic drops.

Big Bang” kicks off with a slow build composed of percussion, organ stabs, and throwback loops before reaching the first drop, treating fans to a dubstep breakdown peppered with dissonant, shrieking synths. It’s a grinding, sonic call-to-arms that is sure to be a standout in Snake’s hotly anticipated sets at Coachella this weekend.

The new single arrives via Interscope Records and is the first new music from the Parisian hitmaker since last summer’s joyous thumper “West Side Story.” It follows a string of diverse releases like the world music-inspired “Guddi Riddim” with the Nooran Sisters, the sensual “Nightbird,” the heavy-hitting “Deep” with Malaa and Yung Felix, and “Power (Remember Who You Are)” with Spinall, Summer Walker, and Äyanna.

No other artist embodies the concept of global dance music quite like DJ Snake. The multi-platinum star made his full-length debut in 2016 with Encore, a groundbreaking album that hit #1 on the Billboard Dance/Electronic chart. His 2019 LP Carte Blanche continued his global takeover with hits like “Loco Contigo” with J. Balvin and Tyga, and the Selena Gomez/Ozuna/Cardi B smash “Taki Taki.”

Along with turning out era-defining tracks like “Turn Down for What” with Lil Jon and the 4x platinum “Let Me Love You” with Justin Bieber, Snake has shattered industry records with over 80 diamond single certifications worldwide and amassed over 40 billion global streams across his genre-blurring discography.
