SLANDER, Crankdat, And Asking Alexandria Team Up For Heavy Metal Infused New Single

Published

on

heavy metal

SLANDER ventures into uncharted territory on their hardcore-meets-bass music track “Kneel Before Me” in collaboration with leading UK rock band, Asking Alexandria, and rising talent, Crankdat, on Monstercat/Sumerian Records. Opening with the notes of a sinister storm, “Kneel Before Me” evokes images of the Amazonian jungle during the apocalypse, filled with the sounds of the wild – grating mechanical synths intertwine with the shrieking of animals and growling basslines become one with the clap of thunder. SLANDER’s cutting edge production style and Asking Alexandria’s angst-ridden vocals give “Kneel Before Me” both emotional and dancefloor appeal, merging the best of heavy rock with the energetic and dynamic bass of dance music. The track has personal significance to SLANDER, as rock and hardcore music were the first genres they immersed themselves in as teenagers; they blasted bands like Avenged Sevenfold, Underoath, and Asking Alexandria themselves from their car speakers in their high school’s parking lot.

“This kind of music is in our core and is where a lot of our other tastes developed from, so if you can imagine how thrilled we were when Asking Alexandria agreed to be a part of our new song with Crankdat!” the duo said. “Our goal with this song was to make our own rendition of hardcore music with dubstep at its core, essentially bringing our musical roots into 2018! Hope you guys dig it!”

SLANDER has proven they are capable of so much more than a singular genre. Recently, the duo has been experimenting with an evolved, ever-changing sound on their original productions, proving their ability to produce both bass-heavy headbangers and emotionally stirring melodies. Pairing their multifaceted production with their charismatic stage presence, SLANDER has also made their brand “Gud Vibrations” with NGHTMRE into a bonafide lifestyle. In 2018 they sold out their Gud Vibrations Boat Party in less than 3 minutes during Miami Music Week, and the listenership of their collaborative Sirius XM radio show grows weekly. In their own right, Asking Alexandria have earned their esteemed place in rock history by combining the innovation of modern active rock with the traditional attitude of the culture’s trailblazers. They’ve shared the stage with legendary artists Guns N’ Roses, Green Day, Alice In Chains, Avenged Sevenfold, Slipknot and more, as well as played every major rock festival in the world and headlined sold out theater tours. Their singles “The Final Episode” and “Not the American Average” were both certified gold by the RIAA. The music videos for those two singles alone amassed over 100M views on YouTube. Their third full length album, From Death to Destiny (2013), shot to #1 on the Rock and Metal charts in the U.K. and cracked the Top 5 of the Billboard 200 in the United States upon its release. Rounding out the “Kneel Before Me” collaboration with an infusion of fresh, bass-heavy talent, Crankdat is an American DJ and producer who soon will be a household name. He’s experienced early success with releases such as “Reasons to Run,” “Lemme See U” with Ghastly, and his popular remix of San Holo’s “Light.” Crankdat recently released a mix for Diplo & Friends’ radio show, further solidifying his spot among dance music’s rising stars. Stay tuned as SLANDER, Asking Alexandria, and Crankdat continue to break down genre boundaries!

Alle Farben Shares Life On The Road With Third Studio Album ‘Sticker On My Suitcase’

Published

on

Alle Farben
On his brand new studio album ‘Sticker On My Suitcase’, Alle Farben touches on one of the most omnipresent and yet often forgotten aspects in every touring artist’s life: traveling. The German producer showcases his signature dance-pop sound throughout the album with organic, melodic instrumentals and subtle, groovy basslines. Farben’s knack for delivering upbeat but raw tracks is especially exemplified on the album’s title song, which uses emotive and relatable lyrics to manifest his realizations about travel and life after several years spent on the road – that it is the journey, not the destination, that is the crucial part. “Being on the road is just as much my life as is arriving at places,” Alle Farben explains. Recently the German artist and his team flew to Los Angeles to produce the stunning new video for his track “Fading,” earning another sticker on his suitcase and another destination crossed off his list. Keep an eye on where Farben is headed to next.

“Sticker on My Suitcase” is Alle Farben’s highly anticipated third studio album, marking another step on his journey to success. It contains eighteen songs, including a brand new single “Different For Us.” The LP also includes the already released streaming hits “Little Hollywood” (feat. Janieck), “H.O.L.Y.” (feat. RHODES), “Only Thing We Know” (feat. Kelvin Jones & Younouts) and “Fading” (feat. Ilira). The Berlin-based DJ and producer has already established himself at the upper echelon of dance and pop music; he’s performed on some of dance music’s biggest stages, including Tomorrowland, Lollapalooza, Sziget Festival, Electric Love and more. In Germany alone, his music has sold over two million downloads in the last year and many more abroad. Alle’s dynamic production and natural talent have earned him four nominations for the renowned German radio award 1LIVE Krone, three nominations for an ECHO Award and a 2017 ECHO win in the category “Dance National.” With his relentless drive and contagious sound, after having achieved 12x Gold, 8x Platinum, and 1x Diamond awards, more is yet to come.

Denis First & Reznikov Release Emotional Yet Dancefloor-Friendly Tune “Empty”

Published

on

Denis First
There aren’t many tracks that hit home both emotionally and on the dance floor, but Russian producers Denis First & Reznikov have mastered the art of that complexity on their new single “Empty”. Featuring groovy yet haunting melodies and a futuristic but progressive bassline, the track fuses these contrasting elements with soulful vocals that evoke a lonesome, wistful feeling. “Empty” conjures images of long solo drives through the dark, empty streets in the middle of the night, letting the open road serve as medicine for heartbreak until the dawn begins to creep up from the horizon. The new release is out on Enhanced Music and follows the artists’ recent “Shameless” and “Move On.” Check out what they had to say about “Empty” below:

“It didn’t take forever to record this song – it was actually pretty quick! When we first heard the vocals, we knew how the music would sound so once we got to the studio, the idea was here already – all we had to do is to implement it into music. “Empty” turned out pretty emotional, and it makes you wanna dance and think about something significant at the same time.” – Denis First & Reznikov.

Denis First & Reznikov are academically trained music producers who first combined forces to make unofficial remixes of their favorite tracks. This eventually led to their first official release in 2016, which has progressed into official remixes for iconic artists such as R3HAB, Galantis, Cash Cash, Nikki Vianna, Madison Mars, Janieck and others. With the release of “Empty” and earlier tracks, the two have proved to be just as dexterous at original productions. Keep an eye out for Denis First & Reznikov as they continue to flex their talent with more new music coming soon!
