DJ Snake Launches Brand New Record Label “Premiere Classe”

Electronic music is on its way to being completely dominated by artist run labels. Earlier today, Parisian DJ and producer DJ Snake officially announced via social media that he is launching his own record label called Premiere Classe (translated to “First Class” in English).

Snake goes on to describe his motivation and reasoning for starting this new label, as well as his goals for it:

“This has always been a dream of mine. I wanted to first build a platform and then use it to shine a light on music/people that I believe in. This record label is for people across all corners of the world, to showcase all genres of music. I grew up influenced by different cultures, sounds, feelings, emotions and I want “Premiere Classe’’ to be a representation of that. I was given a chance some time ago and it changed my life forever, I want to be able to give the same chance to the next generation of artists.”

It could be fair to speculate that CONFESSION's success has helped Snake with his decision to launch this label he's been wanting to for years. CONFESSION is another artist-run label that is headed by one of his closest friends, Tchami. Unlike Tchami’s imprint, however, Snake’s label will not be focused on any single genre.

It doesn’t look like we’ll have to wait long for the first track to debut, either. According to DJ Snake, the first release will be a record by 4B and Teez titled “Whistle”, a banger that Snake has been using as a weapon in his recent sets. The track is due out tomorrow, so stay tuned.

Tchami & Malaa Drop Another Bass House Heater “Kurupt” From Forthcoming “No Redemption” EP

So far, both of the previously released singles from Tchami and Malaa’s forthcoming No Redemption EP, “Summer ‘99” and “The Sermon” have been hits. Both tracks have been rinsed out heavily by DJs and racked up millions of plays across streaming platforms. Today, the Parisian duo release another single from No Redemption, titled “Kurupt”, and it’s a dirty, bass house heater.  

Tchami and Malaa have proved time and time again that their styles, although quite different, flow together immaculately. They’ve collaborated with each other more than they have with any other artists, and they continue to slay their back to back No Redemption live sets. It’s hard to tell who handled which parts of the production on “Kurupt” but, if you listen closely, you can begin to pick out the signature sounds of both producers.

With three singles already released from their No Redemption EP, we really want to know how many other tracks Tchami and Malaa are sitting on. The project is set to be officially released in the Spring, so it looks like we’ll just have to wait and see. For now, give “Kurupt” a few rinses to get your weekend started. Enjoy!

PREMIERE | Up-And-Coming Producers Ford. & Hanz Deliver Silky Smooth Single “The Unknown” Featuring Vocalist Ayelle

ford Hanz

We’re always impressed by some smooth and crisp production, and this brand new track by up-and-coming producers Ford. and Hanz features just that. “The Unknown” is the first official collaboration between these two young artists, who both specialize and creating tranquil, hypnotic beats.

When working together, Ford. and Hanz’s sounds compliment each other, creating a perfect instrumental for vocalist Ayelle (who often works with one of our favorite producers TASKA BLACK). One of the highlights of this tune is the way Ayelle’s vocals flutter back and forth with a high pitched echo of itself in the background.

After Ford. and Hanz heard Ayelle appear on their friend Sonn’s release “Lights Out”, “they knew her ear for melody and vocal harmonies would take the instrumental to the another level”. They were right. Everyone who worked on “The Unknown” executed their parts flawlessly.

“The Unknown” is a soft, serene tune that would fit perfectly into any chill playlist. Enjoy!
