The clip finds the pair dressed in robes and traditional keffiyehs atop massive speaker stacks as they rain cash down on dancers below. There are elaborate dance routines, BMX bikes, smoke machines and lots of gratuitous twerking throughout the over-the-top video.
“DJ Snake is killing it,” Francis said about his “Get Low” collaborator during a recent interview with Radio.com. “He has ‘Turn Down for What,’ which already went platinum. I remember when he first played me that record. I got to France, and we were finishing ‘Get Low,’ and he was like, ‘I have a new record to play you.’ It was called ‘Bang the Underground,’ and when he played it, I was like, ‘oh my God, this is a massive hit, dude. You’ve outdone yourself.’ He’s the same as me, where I want to hear cool, exciting new stuff. Same as Diplo. We don’t want to hear the same stuff over and over again.”
Francis and DJ Snake are both going to be out on tour throughout the summer, with both DJs appearing on select dates of Skrillex’s “Mothership Tour” of North America. DJ Snake is also set to perform at this year’s HARD Summer festival in Los Angeles, scheduled for Aug. 2-3. Francis will be in the mix for Chicago’s Spring Awakening fest which will take over Soldier Field June 13-15.
