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.
