Snails will be embarking on one of the largest tours in North America this year with his 52 date tour, which will feature his brand new stage The Shell 2.0. The stage is being called a “holographic bass music experience powered by groundbreaking production” and is done in part with Beama Visuals, the stage production wizards for Excision and other impressive clientele. The tour kicks off at the iconic Red Rock Amphitheater with his own festival Sluggtopia where “The Shell 2.0” is being unveiled to the world. The tour also features some incredible support with Kill The Noise, Liquid Stranger, Cookie Monsta, Svdden Death, Ubur and Hekler with some more tba. All dates are below.
Snails also just dropped the fourth release from his upcoming remix album of “The Shell: Remixes,” and it’s an epic spin on the original. Kill The Noise takes on remixing Snails and NGHTMRE’s track “Only Want U” featuring Akylla, cycling through a myriad of bass music’s dirtiest tricks: stabbing synths, mechanical percussion, hardstyle-esque basslines and a warped intermittent vocal sampling. Earlier this summer, Snails and Kill The Noise collaborated on “Shake the Ground” featuring Sullivan King and Jonah Kay, which was the first release on the king of Vomitstep’s new label Slugz Music. Since then, Snails has released the first three remixes from the album – including Funtcase’s “Forever” remix, Megalodon’s version of “Russian Roulette,” and Virtual Riot’s take on “WFSU” – on Slugz Music.
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!

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!
Since the summer of 2015, Jarvis has been making waves with his dynamic, bass-driven and foot-stomping sound. 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.

Rising Dubstep Producer HattteR Will Blow You Away With New Remix!
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. Consistency is key, therefore, HattteR has announced to drop new music every month, and sometimes, every week. Let’s keep an eye on him!
