AlunaGeorge’s You Know You Like It was first released back in 2012 and reissued the following year, after the electronic trip-hop tag team of Aluna Francis and George Reid placed runners up in the BBC’s Sound of 2013, broke the UK Top 20 with Attracting Flies and scored a #2 hit as featured artists on Disclosure’s White Noise. The single subsequently scraped in to the Top 40 (it peaked at #39), and the pair’s first studio album Body Music entered the UK album chart at # 11.
This year, the track has received another resurgence in popularity thanks to a spruced up trap remix from French producer DJ Snake that premiered alongside a music video late last year. The re-working propelled the single on to charts across the world, and You Know You Like It (DJ Snake Remix) has subsequently gifted AlunaGeorge with the most charted international hit of their career to date. It’s reached the upper echelons of America’s Billboard Hot 100 (#13 to date) and Australia’s ARIA chart (#11) and will receive its official UK release on 4 September.
Keep your ears peeled for DJ Snake and AlunaGeorge’s You Know You Like It blasting out of speakers near you soon and, to tide you over in the meantime, here’s the latest incarnation of the track to receive an airing via a remix from rising UK beatsmith Luxury.
