Snake returned May 31 with a cryptic photo and a message explaining his whereabouts: “It’s okay to take a break from everything. Unplug & reconnect with yourself.” The comment accompanied a picture of the artist sat alone atop a remote sand dune, apparently deep in thought.
The French DJ and producer (born William Sami Etienne Grigahcine) is typically active on social media (18,700 tweets), and he’s not shy of engaging in a beef (just ask David Guetta).
Though matters took a worrying turn when his last Snapchat said in English, “You’ve disappointed me” before his self-imposed blackout.
Concern mounted when he missed his slot at the Hangout Music Festival and was unable to fulfill his booking for the Wynn in Las Vegas over Memorial Day Weekend. Whether he’ll share more insights into his quiet time, we’ll have to wait and see. One thing is for sure, his fans are glad to have him back. “I missed you so much I’m crying right now,” one emotional Instagrammer wrote.
DJ Snake is next due to perform June 30 at XS in Las Vegas.
