SLANDER trade hard-hitting basslines for melodic Dubstep vibes and emotive vocals on their fourth collaboration with Dylan Matthew, “Love Is Gone”, on NGHTMRE & SLANDER’s label Gud Vibrations. The talented duo weaves cinematic chords and delicate piano keys with exquisite instrumental melodies through the majority of the track, serving as a backdrop to Matthew’s raw and emotional vocal performance. In a departure from festival anthems and a testament to SLANDER’s dynamic abilities as producers, “Love is Gone” is very much a heartbreak track, but one that lifts listeners from the doldrums into the realms of catharsis. Accompanying the track is its ethereal music video, in which fans can join a lone spaceman on a journey through worlds in search of that one metaphorical star. The video captures the song’s wistful and lost ethos with vibrant visuals of both space and faraway lands, catapulting the viewer into the inspiration in SLANDER and Matthew’s heads. The new release follows SLANDER and Dylan Matthew’s earlier collaborations – 2017’s “Without You” (released on Monstercat) and 2018’s “Hate Being Alone” and “First Time” with Seven Lions & Dabin (released on Ophelia). With an indeed one-of-a-kind working relationship between these artists, we hope there will be more projects coming soon!
“‘Love Is Gone’ is our biggest endeavor to date. The accompanying video has been in the works for the past 3 years and is comprised entirely of movie level CGI. Just the rendering process took over 3 months to complete. We are thrilled to finally give our fans a glimpse into this new universe we are creating for them, which comprises our new show visuals, this video, and a secret future project. We’ve been tight lipped about all of this until now and we are so happy to finally reveal some pieces to the story. This one has been a long time coming and we can’t wait to slowly reveal what’s next! Shout out to Roboto for absolutely crushing the video and showing us that there really is no limit on human creativity if enough time and effort is laid down. Also we would like to thank our long-time collaborator Dylan Matthew for once again delivering a stellar vocal performance. At this moment, we are the most proud we have ever been of a project, and we hope you guys enjoy the fruits of our labor.” – SLANDER
“It is great to see this finally coming out. I want to thank all the artists involved in this project because they are integral parts of it. Can’t wait to show to show you what else is in store! Also RIP to all the GPU’s that passed away in the making of this video.” – Roboto

They have recently released “All You Need To Know” with Gryffin, “The Headbangers Ball” EP, comprising “Hate Being Alone,” “Running To You” and “You Don’t Even Know Me”, and “Kneel Before Me” with Crankdat featuring heavy metal band Asking Alexandria.

Safe Dees Adds Some Caribbean Flavor To Her “Summer” Single
This new “Summer” single confirms the perfect chemistry between Safe Dees, David Spencer & Dziubee Drummer. The European vocalist and her friends explore Caribbean rhythms for the very first time. Indeed, I can notice its Reggaeton influence, without undermining her Pop roots and radio-friendly lyrics. Well, the fun doesn’t stop there. Safe dropped a cool animated video on Facebook which receives positive feedback almost every day. A creative mix of reality and fantasy, in what seems to be just a dream. I must admit the clip comes in the right time for the sunny season, and, perhaps, it’s the main motivation for traveling or walking on the beach. If you like what you’ve read, please feel free to like and share.

Mysterious Duos SMACK & CROSSNADERS Debut On CYB3RPVNK With “Bring It Back”
R3HAB’s CYB3RPVNK welcomes duos SMACK and CROSSNADERS to its ranks with their debut track on the label, a Big Room gem titled “Bring It Back”. CYB3RPVNK is on a mission to develop unique, cutting-edge dance music, and the new single certainly delivers; featuring distorted vocal samples and a percussive build up that leads into a bouncy, deep drop with prominent kickdrums and unexpected jazzy instrumentals, “Bring It Back” fuses elements of tech house, electro and bounce music to form a dance-worthy, energetic new sound. Listen for this fresh future house bomb in festival sets and clubs around the globe as this summer season heats up.
Over the last seven years, the Dutch/Moroccan artist Fadil El Ghoul – better known as R3HAB – has established himself as a leader at the forefront of modern electronic music. His tracks have reached the top of many a list, his talent has been called the “future of the craft” by the likes of Forbes and Billboard, and he’s circuited the globe’s best clubs all without the backing of a formal record label. In 2018, R3HAB founded his label CYB3RPVNK, a place that embraces the alternative, pushes artistic boundaries, and serves as a platform to build up new artists. The imprint is current home to R3HAB himself and a strong roster of new artists now including the nefarious masked duo SMACK and alien-esque partners CROSSNADERS. Never seen without their white masks, SMACK claim to be demons too monstrous to reveal their real faces, while CROSSNADERS are still in search of their home planet amid having their signals decoded into electronic music by NASA. If you’re intrigued, you should be. “Bring It Back” is just the beginning of their stories, so keep an eye out for the next clues about these mysterious newcomers.
