Prepare your eardrums for annihilation, because Snails has just released his first track on his new label Slugz Music, and it’s every bit as assaulting as you’d expect from the artist who coined the term “Vomitstep.” The Montreal-based producer teams up with good friend Kill the Noise on “Shake The Ground,” which lays the foundations for the aesthetic of Slugz Music with its rock n’roll and heavy metal influences. From the second that “Shake The Ground” begins, Snails and Kill the Noise subject their willing listeners to an intense experience filled with growling vocals, electric guitar riffs and bone-shaking bass that may just make you lose your breakfast. This level of gut-wrenching perfection doesn’t come overnight; Snails and Kill the Noise began the track more than a year ago, enlisting the help of metal influenced artists Sullivan King and Jonah Kay in its evolution. “We wanted to try something new and different on this one and bring our metal and rock n’ roll roots into the song,” Snails explains. “The energy of the crowds when we drop this song at festivals is what makes it all worth it. Really, really proud of this one!” Press play on “Shake the Ground” and just remember: you’ve been warned. For those fans making it to Hard Summer this year, look to hear “Shake The Ground” dropped at Snails and Kill the Noise’s special Kill the Snails set.
Frédérik Durand, better known as his DJ/producer alias Snails, is truly an artist whose music has no boundaries. After spending years crafting music featuring the most grimy sounds and unrelenting bass – including working with Skrillex and Diplo on their Grammy-winning album – his “Vomitstep” sound found a home on labels like OWSLA, Dim Mak and Monstercat – along with a cult following that truly embraces it. His singles “Into the Light” feat. Sarah Hudson, “WFSU” with Waka Flocka Flame, and “Only Want U” with NGHTMRE and Akylla set the stage for his game-changing debut album “The Shell,” which served as a testimony to exactly who Frédérik is as an artist. Now with the launch of Slugz Music, Snails has a home for his music and others’ that is as outrageous as they want it to be. “I want to release music that really inspires me and is just as weird as me,” he quips. Stay on the lookout for more upcoming, blackout-worthy releases from Snails and Slugz Music!
The music of Jake Stanczak, better known as American producer and DJ, Kill the Noise, was born out of an era where Ridley Scott imagined utopian futures on the silver screen, and artists like NIN and Aphex Twin rocked MTV. After channeling the influences of his youth through over a decades’ worth of forward¬driven electronic releases (“Roots” “Kill Kill Kill”, “Black Magic”, “Occult Classic”), and charismatic live shows (Coachella, EDC Las Vegas, Lollapalooza, Hardfest), the name “Kill the Noise” has become synonymous with some of the leading acts in dance music – getting creative in the studio with the likes of Dillon Francis, deadmau5, AWOLNATION and Skrillex – and as 2018 unfolds, he’ll be unveiling even more material.

Oliverse Releases Five-Track Experimental Bass ‘Outerworld’ EP
At a time when Bass music is at its peak, it can be hard to find an original sound among the womps. Enter Oliverse, the young Producer who is forging his own experimental Bass sound with his newest EP, appropriately titled ‘Outerworld’. The five-track collection spans a variety of genre inspirations, from the electro, dubby and futuristic opener “My Vibe” to the ethereal vocals and melodic basslines of the sensual “Unspoken” ft. Elle. Oliverse employs the fusion of elements from Electro House, Future Bass, Dubstep and more to make his unique sound, which is sometimes brought to life with the synth-laden drops of “Parachute,” or the more cinematic and melodic outro track that gives the EP its name. No matter your taste on the bass spectrum, this EP has something for you. ‘Outerworld’ is out now on Disciple Records.
Ryan Oliphant – better known as Oliverse – was always destined for music. An emo kid at heart, the UK artist started playing guitar at a very young age, which eventually led to the exploration of producing music. In his earlier career, Ryan used multiple different aliases to create Dubstep primarily, but Oliverse was born in 2015 when he decided to shift his focus to a more experimental Bass sound. The talented youth quickly found his feet in the Bass scene and released his debut EP ‘Mountains’, which he quickly followed with his single “Hold It Down” alongside the highly anticipated remix from recurring collaborator, Tisoki, which earned a staple track status in Skrillex’s sets throughout the year. He’s also lent his high-energy, dynamic sound to remixes for Modestep, Emalkay, Dodge & Fuski. Since then, he’s earned the support of legendary artists including Excision, Getter, Borgore, and Diskord. As the ‘Outerworld’ EP demonstrates, Oliverse is just getting started, and he’s only going up from here. Keep an eye out for more from Oliverse coming soon!

Riot Ten Drops Dubstep & Hip-Hop Influenced ‘Hype Or Die: Sun City’ EP
They say everything is bigger in Texas, Lonestar state native Riot Ten proves this true for music as well with his new ‘Hype Or Die: Sun City’ EP. Out now on Steve Aoki’s Dim Mak Records, the six-track EP hits hard out of the gate with the stabbing, robotic bass of “Los Pinches” and never stops, carrying through on tracks like the absolutely relentless, heavy-metal influenced “Ain’t Scared” with Pierce featuring Hashu and the hip-hop tinged “ShutYaMouth” with Foreign Suspects featuring Atarii. The EP’s closing track “Sun City” provides some respite from Riot Ten’s massive assault to the senses, serving as a well-needed breather after an adrenaline-inducing sonic experience. Riot Ten teamed up with 9 producers and singers/songwriters for “Hype Or Die: Sun City,” making for an all-star lineup of bass, hip-hop and dubstep names. To tie it all together, he’s preparing for the premiere event of his own “Hype Or Die” festival in his hometown of El Paso, Texas on May 31st. Get ready for a day of pulverizing basslines courtesy of Riot Ten himself with support by Bonnie x Clyde, PhaseOne, G-Rex, Moonboy and more. Get your tickets here while you still can!
Riot Ten is best known for his breakout single “Rail Breaker,” which held down a place on the Beatport Dubstep Top Ten chart for almost half a year and continues to be one of the most played out records in dance music over 2 years later. Even across genres, fans of The Chainsmokers will recognize Riot Ten’s “F*ck It” as the track they opened every show with on their massive “Memories Do Not Open” tour. After those early successes, the American producer dropped his debut EP with Dim Mak called “Hype Or Die: The Dead” in February 2018, recording a Top 10 debut on the iTunes Dance Album charts. Riot Ten followed up with a second EP “Hype Or Die: Genesis” to coincide with his 40+ city “Hype Or Die 2018 Tour,” selling out shows across the US in nearly every major market. Although he’s a gamer geek at heart, Riot Ten also knows how to throw a party, having performed live sets at popular festivals including Coachella, EDC, Electric Zoo, Nocturnal Wonderland, Lost Lands, and more. Keep an eye out for more new music and exciting appearances from Riot Ten coming later this year!

NGHTMRE & SLANDER’s Gud Vibrations Label Releases ‘Mutation’ EP
NGHTMRE & SLANDER‘s imprint Gud Vibrations welcomes the newest member of the crew, Midnight Tyrannosaurus, with the release of his ‘Mutation’ EP. The three-track project delivers Midnight Tyrannosaurus’s incredibly unique, heavy-hitting dubstep style from the instant the robotic, mechanical title track begins, starring bone-shaking bass and jarring synths. “Banana Planet” packs an otherworldly, tribal bass punch, evoking images of a terribly dystopian jungle. Wrapping things up is “Styx,” featuring ominous, minimal production style and disembodied vocal samples. While Midnight Tyrannosaurus’s sound is difficult to classify, one thing is for certain – you won’t be forgetting it anytime soon. Labelheads NGHTMRE & SLANDER share their excitement about bringing on this talented new artist:
“We are very excited to welcome Midnight Tyrannosaurus to the Gud Vibrations family! He is an incredibly talented producer that is truly pushing the boundaries of bass music. The one thing we love the most about Midnight T is that his songs are instantly recognizable and very unique. We can’t wait for the world to hear his new EP! We hope it really challenges listeners to open their minds to something new! Get ready!” – NGHTMRE & SLANDERSTREAM/DOWNLOAD
Before linking up with the Gud Vibrations camp, Midnight Tyrannosaurus had written releases on multiple bass labels over the majority of the past decade, most recently on Never Say Die’s Black Label. He is currently on his first solo worldwide headline 40+ date “Mutation Tour” to promote the EP, which began on January 18th in China and hits major cities such as Sydney, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Chicago and more. The tour also features Midnight Tyrannosaurus’s own visuals and support from bass artists YAKZ, Kai Wachi, and Cromatik. The future is looking very bright indeed for Midnight Tyrannosaurus, who is set to be one of Gud Vibrations’ artists of 2019, alongside WAVEDASH, Shadient and of course NGHTMRE and SLANDER themselves.

Jarvis Revitalizes Hard-Hitting Brostep Genre With Full ‘The Bro Code’ EP
If you haven’t heard of Brostep yet, it’s about to become part of your vocabulary courtesy of British producer Jarvis and his new EP, appropriately titled ‘The Bro Code’, out now on Firepower Records. Featuring recently released tracks “Death Rave” and “Reborn” as well as the previously unheard “New Dimension” and “Moombruh,” Jarvis uses pulse-quickening basslines, serrating synths and unexpected melodies to create a personal style that is aggressive, distinct and dancefloor-friendly – that is, if headbanging in a mosh pit is your idea of dancing. Brostep is certainly not for the faint of heart, but Jarvis’s legions of Bros are a special breed, abiding by his “Bro Code” and ready to assemble for their leader at any moment. Press play to listen to ‘The Bro Code’ EP and jump on the Bro-wagon yourself!

Throughout his years as an artist, he’s experienced a transformation he describes as a phoenix, rising from the ashes of the sounds of old to reveal his new sonic mission: reviving the Brostep movement. Armed with the hashtag #BringBackBrostep and a list of commandments for every brostep lover to live by called the #BroCode, Jarvis is amassing a loyal following of listeners just as devoted to the early-Skrillex-era music as he is. The #BroCode spans a myriad of unspoken rules between bros, touching on everything from DJ etiquette to fashion do’s and don’ts to rave rules. Open to all genders, colors, shapes, and sizes, Jarvis means to use the #BroCode to unite the scene in these divided times, bringing people together to enjoy the universal religion that is electronic music. Keep tabs on Jarvis and the latest Brostep news and music.

Dubstep fanatics get ready for this hot remix of Lil’ Troy‘s “Wanna Be A Baller”. Personally, I can’t get enough of its heavy bass treatment. HattteR, a rising Producer from Houston, Texas literally transforms this old school Hip-Hop hit with vicious slashes, bouncy wobbles and whomps. Pushing the boundaries of the genre with a makeover that will blow you away.
In fact, I’m surprised how the track starts off rather calm but then the high energy kicks in. This happens when you feel those thunderous bass quakes penetrate your ears. Despite he’s new in the underground scene, headbangers are getting addicted to his inventive takes on classics. Incredibly, since its premiere, the remix has reached over 16K streams on SoundCloud.
