Candid conversation with DJ Snake
Updated: Apr 30, 2019
1. Tell us about your very own record label - `Premiere Classe Records’, your inspiration behind it?
DJ SNAKE: I wanted to have a place where I can support new talent. Fresh fire from all over the world.
2. What kind of genres will `Premiere Classe Records’ cater to?
DJ SNAKE: So far its within the electronic genre but I don’t see this is a genre based label, I will put out what I want, when I want.
3. Tell us about ‘Premiere Classe Records’s exclusive association with the newly launched Indian record label 9122 Records. How did it come about and why 9122 Records?
DJ SNAKE: We had worked with the owner before at my record label and he was a great leader so when he left we had to work with him. He understands what I want and how important India is to me.
4. Do you feel that collaborations with local labels help in increasing the reach of artistes and the music?
DJ SNAKE: No. I don’t want to do that. If someone is good from anywhere in the world, big, small – whatever. I want to work with what is great.
5. Will you sign up Indian artistes to `Premiere Classe Records'?
DJ SNAKE: Of course. If it’s dope, we are your new home.
6. Any message to the next generation of artists, especially in India?
DJ SNAKE: Stay true to who you are. The moment you think about money, you sell out.
