While a love song isn’t necessarily what you’d expect from the inventor of a genre called “Vomitstep,” that’s exactly what Snails has created on his newest release “Magnets”. Produced in collaboration with heavyweights Zeds Dead and live electronic duo Akylla, “Magnets” is a rollercoaster ride through a passionate relationship, complete with dramatic vocals, stabbing percussion and goosebump-inducing bass. To sum up the track, Snails says “”Magnets’ is all about putting together beautiful melodies and vocals with intense basslines to create a powerful love song. The mix of all our styles complimented each other exactly how we wanted and so happy how the song came out.” A romantic ballad for the modern basshead, “Magnets” is guaranteed to create some serious flames on the dancefloor this fall. It’s out now as a co-release between Snails’s Slugz Music and Zeds Dead’s Deadbeats labels.
Just in time to showcase his recent releases – such as “Magnets” and “The Shell: Remixes” LP – Snails is about to embark on his massive 52 date North American 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 on October 5th at Snails’s own festival Sluggtopia at the iconic Red Rock Amphitheater, where “The Shell 2.0” is being unveiled to the world. Expect to hear some heavy tracks from Snails’s recent remix album of “The Shell”, which features some guest artists who will perform at Sluggtopia, including Funtcase, Space Jesus and SVDDEN DEATH among others. Also, 12th Planet, Kill the Noise, Liquid Stranger, Cookie Monsta and Voyd will be joining Snails throughout the entire “The Shell 2.0” tour on select dates as well as SVDDEN DEATH, HEKLER and UBUR as touring support. Check out “The Shell 2.0” tour dates below and grab tickets to a city near you!
Snails is truly an artist whose music has no boundaries. After spending years crafting music featuring the most grimy sounds and unrelenting bass imaginable in his small apartment, his “Vomitstep” sound found a home on labels like OWSLA, Dim Mak and Monstercat – along with a cult following that truly embraces it. Snails recently launched his label Slugz Music as home for his music and others’ that is as outrageous as they want it to be. As collaborators on “Magnets,” Zeds Dead add their pioneering touch of bass music that has developed into their iconic sound over the last decade through classics like “White Satin” and “Lost You.” Their consistent stream of quality releases has won them the adoration of millions of fans and praise from the biggest names in music. Following the release of their long awaited debut album in 2016, Zeds Dead have continued to surprise old fans and gain new ones with a series of collaborations with Illenium, Ganja White Night, Jauz, and 1000 Volts (Redman & Jayceeoh). Zeds Dead runs their own label Deadbeats, recently released singles from Devault, DNMO, GG Magree, Hunter Siegel, an EP from 1788-L, and a critically lauded debut album from Shades entitled “In Praise of Darkness”. The organic melodies and emotive vocals on “Magnets” are compliments of electronic live duo Akylla, who join forces with Snails again after working with him on 2017’s “Only Want U.” “Magnets” is bursting with the talent of these three artistic groups, so don’t miss the chance to be among the first to listen!

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.
