As we pointed out in our  first listen earlier in the week, “Magenta Riddim,” the new DJ Snake original, is far from the dubstep/riddim world that the name so implies. In fact, it couldn’t be further from that as the record is a catchy hybrid of Indian and/or Middle Eastern influences.


DJ Snake’s penchant for unique percussion is certainly there while the chanting vocals and instrumentation in the drop also seem to point us in an Indian-inspired direction. In any case, the record is a catchy new banger that’s not too far off from some of the heavier records on DJ Snake’s last album Encore and it certainly should appeal to fans of DJ Snake’s bassier and less commercial records.
