DJ Snake is notorious for always wearing shades, whether he’s on stage, doing press, or just living his everyday life. Many have speculated reasons why (appearance? eye problems?), but we finally have the real answer.

The world renowned DJ and self-proclaimed “low-key guy” said, “It was because when I became big I suddenly I found myself playing on stage with 200,000 people and that is scary.”

“I remember my manager told me just put on a pair of sun glasses and that should mitigate the panic. So I tried it and it worked. Now people recognize me with my glasses and it helps me feel better.”

DJ Snake revealed it also helps him to travel incognito.

To be honest, we probably wouldn’t even recognize him without them.

Keep doing your thing, DJ Snake, because the sun never sets on a badass!
