Comment
This is a real head turner. This guy is a very clever music maker and knows what he is doing in the studio. There's an African influence, which is no surprise given he is from Paris. We are talking about DJ Snake, here hooking up with a bit of an African music superstar called Niniola. This is his brand new track called Maradona Riddim, turn it up, enjoy. 
This week's featured Essential New Tune was featured in last week’s Friday show on BBC Radio 1. Listen here.
