DJ Snake has made a name for himself as one of dance music’s most accessible producers, rolling out massive hits such as “Turn Down For What” with Lil Jon, as well as contributing to Major Lazer’s smash hit “Lean On,” which went on to be named Spotify’s global song of the summer. Now, the EDM producer is taking on one of the most recognizable melodies ever written, dropping a remix of the classic Darth Vader theme from the ever popular Star Wars franchise.
Dropping his latest Trap masterpiece in a new HP Laptop commercial, the Parisian beat maker switches up the well known motif, mixing in groovy Hip Hop influenced beats, snare rushes, and transposing the recognizable Vader melody onto dirty synth stabs. DJ Snake even makes a personal appearance in the commercial, dropping by to give us a glimpse of his studio work flow.
The ad is obviously timed to capitalize on the upcoming new entry in the long running Star Wars series, and seeing DJ Snake try his hand at a remix for the franchise is just plain fun.
