DJ Snake，原名William Grigahcine。更多人知道的是他的艺名DJ Snake，法国著名DJ，rap歌手，制片人等。他还混音一些歌手的歌曲和制作电子音乐。DJ Snake获得过格莱美提名的制片人，艺术家。代表作有《Turn Down for What》。
William Grigahcine，以DJ Snake的身份为世人所知，在他不算长的职业音乐生涯中，总共发布了不到十首的原创歌曲。这不是因为想象力的匮乏或是材料的不足，这位巴黎制作者兼音乐人说：“他只是挑剔罢了。"
DJ Snake 出生在巴黎郊外，在一个自称是贫民窟的地方。小时候他受到法国一部名叫La Haine电影以及嘻哈音乐家KRS-One和Cypress Hill的影响，他从青少年时期开始的对打碟的热爱。那场狂热的开端，他说：“是一部法国的cult电影，《怒火青春》（La Haine）。电影里面的一个场景是有关DJ Cutkiller的，那个来自法国的全欧洲最著名的DJ之一，他像疯了一样用手搓盘，”他回忆道。“当我看到那个画面时我14岁，当时我就像 ‘呦，这正是我想做的。太疯狂了。”关于他的名字，DJ Snake说：““因为我开始打碟的时候城里每个人都叫我 ‘Snake’，我就想 ‘那就叫DJ Snake吧。’这个名字烂透了，不过现在想改已经太迟了。”在他早期的职业生涯中，他只是在别墅派对上表演，后来逐渐去一些更大的巴黎俱乐部，像是 VIPROOM 和 Les Bains Douches，这两个场所曾由nightlife传奇人物David Guetta管理。在2005年，他遇到了他的经理Steve Goncalves，而且他还鼓励DJ Snake开始创作自己的音乐。
2013年，DJ Snake混音了Kanye West的《New Slaves》，AlunaGeorge的《You Know You Like It》，Duck Sauce的《It's You》，Major Lazer的《Bubble Butt》。
