Featuring a distinct, Near East and Mediterranean feel with sensual vocals and relaxed production, this new effort is quite different than the French producer’s other 2018 releases which tend to favor the “festival” feel. And the new songs have been met with mixed reactions from fans who were expecting main stage bangers.

With songs like “Maradona,” DJ Snake fully embraces traditional melodies and instruments from around the world, just as KSHMR helped the sounds of India gain a mainstream appreciation. Listen to “Maradona Riddim” and see what you think.
