DJ Snake is best known for his high intensity, rap crossover tracks like the 2018 anthem ‘Taki Taki'. But those who have only grown familiar with the French producer in the last year or so might not be aware that DJ Snake's production range is unbelievably sizable. He demonstrates this with his new single alongside Plastic Toy called ‘Try Me'.
The track is slow, and chill. Almost to the point of downtempo. It showcases harsh, otherworldly synths that will give the listener the feeling of early Flume or Andrew Bayer. While the track never gets as complex as it might have it been crafted by the two aforementioned inspirations, it undoubtedly packs a serious punch in terms of production quality.
The tune carries an excellent emotional weight to it. While this nature of release is certainly unexpected by Snake at this point in his career, it is more than welcome. ‘Try Me' is a rare chilled out gem in a library of works that seem to cater to the mainstream first. Check out the brilliant little tune below.
