Prepare your eardrums for annihilation, because Snails has just released his first track on his new label Slugz Music, and it’s every bit as assaulting as you’d expect from the artist who coined the term “Vomitstep.” The Montreal-based producer teams up with good friend Kill the Noise on “Shake The Ground,” which lays the foundations for the aesthetic of Slugz Music with its rock n’roll and heavy metal influences. From the second that “Shake The Ground” begins, Snails and Kill the Noise subject their willing listeners to an intense experience filled with growling vocals, electric guitar riffs and bone-shaking bass that may just make you lose your breakfast. This level of gut-wrenching perfection doesn’t come overnight; Snails and Kill the Noise began the track more than a year ago, enlisting the help of metal influenced artists Sullivan King and Jonah Kay in its evolution. “We wanted to try something new and different on this one and bring our metal and rock n’ roll roots into the song,” Snails explains. “The energy of the crowds when we drop this song at festivals is what makes it all worth it. Really, really proud of this one!” Press play on “Shake the Ground” and just remember: you’ve been warned. For those fans making it to Hard Summer this year, look to hear “Shake The Ground” dropped at Snails and Kill the Noise’s special Kill the Snails set.
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!
The music of Jake Stanczak, better known as American producer and DJ, Kill the Noise, was born out of an era where Ridley Scott imagined utopian futures on the silver screen, and artists like NIN and Aphex Twin rocked MTV. After channeling the influences of his youth through over a decades’ worth of forward¬driven electronic releases (“Roots” “Kill Kill Kill”, “Black Magic”, “Occult Classic”), and charismatic live shows (Coachella, EDC Las Vegas, Lollapalooza, Hardfest), the name “Kill the Noise” has become synonymous with some of the leading acts in dance music – getting creative in the studio with the likes of Dillon Francis, deadmau5, AWOLNATION and Skrillex – and as 2018 unfolds, he’ll be unveiling even more material.

GLD Debut On Carnage’s Heavyweight, A Blend Of Downtempo, Glitch & Bass
DJ and producing duo GLD just dropped their latest track “Judgement Day” a genre-bending single for the most intense bass heads out there. It delivers menacing, wobbling basslines and serrating synths in a relentless tempo, which GLD expertly layers with distorted vocal riffs that further add to the frenzied mood. Listeners suddenly understand the track’s name when a church organ ominously appears in the interlude, evoking images of sacrilegious acts and a fiery underworld. “Judgement Day” is out on Carnage’s Heavyweight Records, and GLD joins the ranks of GRAVEDGR, Sludge, GOMMI and more as part of Carnage’s epic crew of cronies.
Friends Mattie and Jake founded their project GLD with a desire to change what it means to make and perform music and to improve the world with the messages spread through their art. GLD’s mantra is that music doesn’t need to fit in a genre box, and their style draws influences from energized punk and jazz and blends it with powerhouse electronic music. Their unique and intense style has earned them support from heavyweights like Skrillex, Diplo, DJ Snake, The Chainsmokers, Flosstradamus, Excision, and NGHTMRE. GLD continues to expand upon their production prowess with every release, and we can’t wait to see where the rest of this year takes them!

Sludge Channels His Ancestry For Debut EP, ‘The Serbian Monster’
It’s been a while since the world has heard from Sludge, the sinister producer who first made his appearance on Carnage’s Heavyweight Records last year with “Blacksmith.” He’s been hard at work on a new project that reflects a darker persona than ever – ‘The Serbian Monster’ EP. The release features four brand new tracks of his signature raw and industrial sound, all of which thematically tell the story of his cultural heritage. From listening to the stabbing basslines and ear-splitting synths of “The Feast” to the “Prepare to Die” vocal riffs of the EP’s title track “The Serbian Monster.” With the relentless mechanical reverberations of “Kill Them,” Sludge transports the listeners right into his family’s escape from Yugoslavia during the Yugoslav Wars to the US. “End Game” depicts a dark but victorious closing to the saga, which exemplifies Sludge’s more mature but equally heavy sound on the new EP. As seen on the video for “Blacksmith,” Sludge’s upbringing continues to be an inspiration for his music.
Iconic DJ and producer Carnage founded his label Heavyweight Records in 2017 as a home for hard bass and hip-hop music. Since then, the Las Vegas-based artist has gathered a formidable crew of cronies on the imprint, from the masked mastermind GRAVEDGR, Melbourne Bounce frontrunner Will Sparks, trippy up-and-comer GOMMI, and the sinister and dangerous Sludge. Sludge joined their prestigious ranks as a debutant with “Blacksmith” in 2019 being his first release (now having amassed 3M streams on Spotify) and “Emergency” and “Crush ‘Em” as his follow-ups, which set the stage for him to become one of the label’s premier acts going forward. ‘The Serbian Monster’ is a promising sophomore EP, sending the message that Sludge is far from over being bitter about his country’s demise during the Cold War. Follow Carnage, Heavyweight Records, Sludge, and the rest of the gang for more sinister sounds.

RATED R & VRG Drop Highly-Anticipated Viral Dubstep Track “Womp Womp”
Talented newcomers RATED R and VRG make their dramatic entrance by dropping “Womp Womp”. Featuring some of the most insane basslines and serrating synths known to humankind, this track has already been dominating the dubstep scene thanks to support from heavyweights Excision, Carnage, NGHTMRE, Svdden Death, ATLiens, and more. One such video of “Womp Womp” being dropped during a live set went viral on Twitter, racking up thousands of retweets and likes – and increasing curiosity as to the artists behind dubstep’s hottest track. One thing is for certain – with the festival season beginning at the close of this month, you can expect to hear “Womp Womp” at bass stages everywhere from Miami to Vegas and beyond.
Orlando-based DJ RATED R is known to his friends simply as “Frankie,” but he’s about to become one of the most talked-about names in electronic music. “Womp Womp” is putting RATED R firmly on the map, though he’s already performed as direct support for artists like GTA, ATLiens, and Megladon, making his live debut at WMC in Miami. His love of music began with playing the drums, which can still be heard in the prominent kickdrums of his bass music. Teaming up with RATED R is Daniel Pacheco – better known as VRG–who has been making music since he was only 11 years old. VRG first found his calling in the Jersey Club scene with his Re-VIP to Boombox Cartel’s “Jefe VIP,” which has been played out by some of the world’s most renowned DJs. He has since expanded his prowess to include many other electronic genres, VRG has gained the support & likes of artists such as 4B, Carnage, Zomboy, Boombox Cartel, and many more. Keep an eye out for more new music from these two emerging artists coming soon!
