In February, DJ Snake dropped an Indian or Middle Eastern-influenced single called “Magenta Riddim.” Unlike his recent releases, which have been radio friendly, “Magenta Riddim” is a club and festival track. It has become a favorite in the DJ community, topping DJcity’s Hot Box chart within days of its release. In terms of commercial success, the song is currently No. 26 on Billboard’s Hot Dance/Electronic Songs chart.
Now, a month after its release, there are plenty of remixes of “Magenta Riddim” to choose from. Here are our favorites so far:
The cumbia genre, which originated in Colombia, is gaining momentum.

MAKJ has an excellent track record on DJcity. The majority of his releases have made the daily Hot Box chart, many of which have also appeared on the monthly Top 50.
His latest offering, a throwback-style remix of Joan Jett’s 1982 anthem, “I Love Rock ‘N’ Roll,” is likely to do the same. The track features moombahton and twerk influences and a prominent Jay-Z sample.
“I love the idea of blending genres,” MAK tells us. “I’ve always done it in my sets, and I wanted to make something I could play live, hence the idea of mixing Joan Jett with Jay-Z. They say opposites attract.”
