Sure, big room DJs may be an easy target, but see SNL going in on them here with a skit titled ‘When Will The Bass Drop?’. Riffing on the endless gratification delaying tactics of the EDM circuit, Andy Samberg’s Davvinci (obviously not to be confused with Avicii) pantomimes an outrageous build-up before his track drops in earnest. Of course, this is accompanied by a Lil Jon sample (the frankly genius “get turned up to death”) and exploding heads.
While he teases the crowd, before slamming the big red ‘BASS’ button, Davvinci plays with a model train set, accepts direct credit card payments and rakes a zen garden.
Eat your sketchiest pills and watch above.
