Just a few weeks after announcing his newest “Slimeageddon” EP, Snails has announced another massive milestone in his prolific career: the launch of his very own comic book series, The Shell, and its debut issue The Sluggernaut. Through its vivid imagery and captivating storylines, The Sluggernaut provides a glimpse into the creative universe that fuels the Vomitstep producer’s music and live event concepts. Snails teamed up with French artist Dr. Fanx and co-writer Maria Filipone to bring the Vomitsquad’s colorful world – including King Slugz, King Frogz, Sluggtopia and The Shell – to life in Marvel-like style. On the surface, The Sluggernaut’s plot may seem like it’s all about King Slugz’s intergalactic, worm-fighting battles, but Snailshas a much deeper meaning behind the series. At its core, The Sluggernaut is the story of a flawed hero desperate to save his people, and its theme centered on perseverance in the face of tremendous obstacles.Through the engage plotlines and immersive art, Snails creatively conveys his believe that one has an obligation to fulfill one’s own destiny. Check out Snails’s message to his fans below:
“My music and shows have always been attached to a story. Frogz, King Slugz, Sluggtopia, and The Shell are all part of a bigger vision – one that hasn’t been fully explained … until now. Super proud to announce that The Sluggernaut comic book will be released on November 26th. Check out the first 11 pages and pre-order your physical copy for the full story!”
Snails has had a massive year by any means of measurement: he released a full-length remix album of his cult favorite “The Shell,” launched his own record label Slugz Music, and rounded out 2018 with a massive North American tour featuring an awe-inspiring, mind-bending holographic stage dubbed “The Shell 2.0.” His “Vomitstep” sound first found a home on the praised label OWSLA and has led him to work alongside figures like Skrillex, Diplo and more. Then, Snails created Slugz Music as a home for his music and others’ that is as outrageous as they want it to be. Now with the launch of his own comic book series – a territory previously uncharted in the electronic scene – his accomplishments speak for themselves in demonstrating that Snails is truly an artist with no boundaries. The Sluggernaut is only the beginning of Snails’s The Shellcomic book series, so stay tuned for the next chapter of the saga!

Jarvis Unleashes His #BringBackBrostep Movement With Bass-Driven Floor Stomper “Reborn”
Just weeks after dropping his pulverizing bass bomb “Death Rave”, Jarvis is back and sending a message to the world with “Reborn”, the second single from his upcoming ‘The Bro Code’ EP. Comprised of robotic synths, stabbing basslines, and digitized melodies that sound as if they came straight from a dystopian video game, “Reborn” exemplifies the very type of music Jarvis is trying to revitalize: the aggressive yet melodic, frenetic and high-energy bass music known as Brostep. The British producer believes the genre is more than due for a comeback, and he’s established himself as the leader of its rebirth with the founding of a “Bro Code” with legions of bros ready to assemble to his calling. Check out “Reborn” to experience Jarvis’s distinctly gut-wrenching basslines; you may just want to become an official BroCode member 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’s upcoming EP, set to be released in May, and follow him for the latest Brostep news and music!

Shadient Releases “Medination”, Third Single From Upcoming ‘Divide’ EP
After teasing listeners with “Abberate” and “Numbers Station” earlier this month, Shadient showcases his impeccable sound design with his deepest, darkest release yet in the form of “Medination”. Opening with the ominous, goose-bump inducing tick of a monstrous clock, the track sets a menacing tone from the start. Shadient then unleashes an array of stabbing synths and rumbling basslines in constant succession. “Medination” is the third release from the British producer’s upcoming EP Divide, which will be released on NGHTMRE & SLANDER’s Gud Vibrations. With one final track left to drop, Shadient is getting ready to unleash his talents full-force upon the world.
Since his invention in 2015, Shadient has been pushing the boundaries of electronic music. “From the get-go, it was this world of ideas I had rushing into my head of metallic and industrial imagery, dark visual aspects and noise and bass leaning music,” he says. “Some of my more primary influences initially were Gesaffelstein, Boys Noize, and Aphex Twin. Very minimalistic and dark European techno artists, but I always felt that palette could be explored more musically.” Shadient’s forward-thinking approach to production has earned him loyal support from artists like Porter Robinson, who has also become a good friend and even once gave Shadient $3000 to purchase a laptop so he could finish his album. Shadient’s recent releases “COLLIDER” and “winter=reality”, were signed to Mat Zo’s label Mad Zoo and he also did an official remix for RL Grime. Stay tuned for Shadient’s next single and Divide EP coming out soon on NGHTMRE & SLANDER’s Gud Vibrations!

Sullivan King Gives Iconic Lyrics A Rock & Bass Makeover On New Track “Save The World”
With his new track “Save the World”, LA-based artist Sullivan King puts a Rock and Dubstep-influenced spin on some of dance music’s most iconic lyrics. Although hard rock instrumentals and growling, dubby basslines aren’t necessarily what comes to mind upon hearing the title, Sullivan pulls it off flawlessly; the result feels entirely original with the only the very slightest sense of deja vu, guaranteed to send listeners into a frenzy when the track reaches its hedonistic apex. Sullivan King – who plays the guitar instrumentals in the track, sings, writes, and produces all of his own tracks – reflects on his inspiration for “Save the World” below.
“One of the first electro house tracks I heard was Knife Party’s remix of SHM’s ‘Save The World’ which was definitely a massive part of my intro into early 2010’s dance music. For years I wanted to find a way to make that song my own for live shows. I don’t play a lot of super well known Top 40 dance songs so when I end up throwing something like this in a set, I love giving it my own take. I toyed with ideas for this for over a year and wasn’t ever really jazzed on any of it. The day before the first show on this year’s Apex Tour with Excision, I wanted to bring something different into my sets. I finished this in about 3-4 hours and drove to Las Vegas for a show the next morning to test it out.”
Sullivan King is not about playing by the rules. The 24-year-old artist has made it his artistic work to found the “metalstep” sound, a fusion of the influential bands of his youth and the avant-garde, ever-evolving world of electronic music. King grew up listening to rock bands like From First to Last, Linkin Park, Avenged Sevenfold, Bullet for My Valentine, and Metallica, finding a sweet spot in crossing those elements with sophisticated sound design and heavy-hitting basslines. His unique music production style has helped him stand out from his peers and gain support from prolific tastemakers like The Chainsmokers, DJ Snake, Excision, Zeds Dead and more. “Save the World” follows Sullivan King’s “The Demented” (Kannibalen Rec.) and 2018’s “I’ll Fight Back” (Monstercat), “Shake The Ground” w/ Snails, Kill The Noise (Slugz Music); “Dropkick” (Kannibalen) and “Wake Up” w/ Excision. Stay tuned for more new music coming soon from this exciting and multi-talented young artist!
