London: Beyonce Knowles has turned to a DJ to mastermind her new album.

Dave Taylor, also known by DJ name Switch, is one of the top producers.

Switch has worked on a raft of songs for Glastonbury headliner Beyonce, who wants to seriously re-invent herself when her fourth album is released later this year, reports the Sun.

He made his name DJ-ing at clubs including Fabric in London, then with his house track A Bit Patchy. After remixing for Lily Allen and Fatboy Slim, he made beats for M.I.A., Santogold and Christina Aguilera.

Then he teamed up with pal DIPLO to form electro group Major Lazer.

That`s when Knowles put in the call asking Dave and Diplo to work on her genre-mashing next collection.
