First Listen: DJ Snake and Plastic Toy co-produce modern new single, 'Try Me'

DJ Snake‘s latest singles thundered into launch circles as high-powered productions destined for dance flooring domination. The multilingual Latin heater, “Taki Taki,” and the Parisian producer’s collaboration with Mercer, “Let’s Get Ill” come up as two examples of the adrenaline spiking aesthetic that has characterised DJ Snake’s digital exercise of late, or at the least, till now. Created alongside fellow Premiere Classe label mate, Plastic Toy, DJ Snake’s newest tune is a melodic detion from the energetic sound constructions of his previous smash songs. “Try Me” fluidly fuses piano chords with a centerpiece synth that undulates in sync with the one’s mid-tempo tempo.

“Try Me” exemplifies the expression “much less is extra.” The single focalizes the silky synth that serves because the track’s centerpiece, and tastefully helps it with complementary however minimalistic touches, just like the piano chords.

“The most attention-grabbing factor on this track for me, is the lead synth that comes with the drop,” Plastic Toy stated in a press launch. “With DJ Snake, we pushed the monitor to a complete new stage, giving it that highly effective and melodic sound. Working with Snake was very inspiring. He has the power to really feel the music and what’s going to sound good.”

The easy ebb and move of “Try Me” evidences Plastic Toy’s acute ear for refined rhythmic preparations, an indicator of the Frenchman’s manufacturing fashion. Just as “Try Me” indicators a shift in sound for DJ Snake, it too signifies a tonal flip for Plastic Toy.

“It’s been a very long time since I wrote a melancholic form of monitor like this, so this one is admittedly particular to me,” Plastic Toy added. “The result’s a very Plastic Toy fashion [that] completely displays my musical colour.”

When DJ Snake and Plastic Toy coalesce “musical colours” in a collaboration, the result’s evidently kaleidoscopic.
