DJ Snake brings his label Premiere Classe to India!
By Bryan Durham - March 9, 2019
DJ Snake loves India so much, he has gone and opened up shop in the country. While the prolific DJ/producer, whose real name is William Sami Etienne Grigahcine, launched his record label Premiere Classe Records in March last year, he’s launched the India chapter with an exclusive deal with new local record label 9122 Records.
While 4B & Teez’s Whistle, released through PCR, was the most played record at Ultra Music Festival in Miami, the label has been on a steady rise since and has been working with exciting music producers from around the globe.
BEHIND THE DREAM: JUST DOPE MUSIC!
DJ Snake has said “To launch my very own record label has always been a dream of mine. Here it is Premiere Classe. 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. No politics. Just dope music.”
THIS IS… THE BEGINNING
Towards that end, William has been curating a series of releases which have taken the shape of an album titled Premiere Classe: The Beginning. The album would portray a wide range of genres such as the heavy hitting Burn by SAYMYNAME to the groovy disco tune Boss by Mercer. From Shanghai based pop Chace’s Never to Plastic Toy’s and DJ Snake’s signature chill Try Me! He might also be releasing a track from India, one expects, via the Mumbai-based new record label 9122 Records.
WHAT TO EXPECT
Sunil D’Sa, founder of 9122 Records, says of the vision for his label, 9122 Records will bring into India, international music from around the world and across genres – from pop/dance to reggaeton, from rap/hip hop to dancehall, from reggae to EDM, music lovers can expect some exciting music coming real soon! For now, enjoy Premiere Classe – The Beginning curated by DJ Snake for his legion of Indian fans!”
DJ Snake’s love for India is no secret as he most recently headlined the 2018 New Year Eve’s gig in Pune to thousands of screaming fans! He has just announced a massive four-city tour this March including a Special Holi bash in Mumbai where you can expect him to unleash all his hits as well as exciting new music from the above compilation Premiere Classe Records – The Beginning.
