The genre-bending maestro known as Liquid Stranger teased his newest EP with the original release of “Hotbox” late last year, and now he brings us the full “Weird & Wonderful” ensemble. The entire release consists of six diverse, but equally massive tracks, which will satisfy the different appetites of Liquid Stranger‘s legion of loyal fans. “Launch” is spacey and futuristic electronica, while “Who” comes in banging with a barrage of melody, then it’s on to “SPACEBOSS,” which is a very suitable name for the track’s aggressive and alien-esque outerspace-bass. Meandering seamlessly between genres, “Frankenskank” is funky and reggae-infused, perfect for lighting up and grooving out. After the much acclaimed “Hotbox,” the EP rounds out with “Get Well Soon (Aaron),” the most melodic and mellow of the pack; it was written while friend ‘Bleep Bloop‘ was sick on tour, and adds a melancholic and yet refreshingly human element to the entire album.
The fluid, transcendental nature of Liquid Stranger‘s music enables him to appeal to a wide audience of listeners – in fact, he has held the #1 chart position on numerous occasions and in several different genres, including dubstep, reggae and drum & bass via Beatport. His single “Dissolve” has reached a massive 2.3 million streams on Spotify, along with racking up millions of plays on his Soundcloud page. He has also enthralled crowds around the world this year with appearances at prolific festivals such as Shambhala, Electric Forest, Bumbershoot, Imagine, Nocturnal and Summer Camp. His metamorphic approach to music has grown beyond his own productions into his own imprint, Wakaan, which defines itself as “a forum for eclectic music and art.” With Wakaan, Liquid Stranger hopes to curate and support other unique producers and artists. Liquid Stranger draws inspiration from a myriad of directions; in fact, this EP‘s namesake comes from his fall 2016 tour, “Weird & Wonderful,” during which he wrote the entire album from scratch. We never know what this jack-of-all-trades will come up with next, but we can bet it will be completely unexpected and undoubtedly awesome.

MONDO Brings Moombahton Back With New Song “Event Horizon”
Certainly, one thing that defines MONDO‘s music is the use of dark bass elements. We have already experienced his incredibly signature sound on a previous banger called, “El Macuahuitl”. Best of all, he goes beyond his own imagination by spicing up the arrangements with Moombahton. That said, his brand new song, “Event Horizon”, features this Latin-influenced rhythm, but at the same time, it evokes melodies from the likes of Rezz, Gesaffelstein, and Whipped Cream. In conclusion, it won’t be an exaggeration to state that “Event Horizon” will make crowds partying the night away. Moreover, this hybrid is guaranteed to cause mayhem on any dance floor. Check it out for yourself!

SLANDER Remix Kill The Noise’s “Jump Ya Body” As Free Download
After teasing listeners with distinctively melody-driven releases earlier this summer, SLANDER returns to their hard-hitting, party-starting bass sound with their remix of Kill The Noise‘s “Jump Ya Body” featuring vocals by Mercedes. The duo teamed up with up-and-coming Canadian producer Tucker Kreway for the remix, which opens with electro-inspired melodies-almost fooling listeners into believing this will be a tame track-before building to a drop that intermingles stabbing, machine gun-esque synths with grinding basslines. “Kill The Noise has always been a huge influence of ours over the years! After doing our remix for his album back in 2016 we knew we had to do another one sometime in the future and we felt ‘Jump Ya Body’ was the perfect song to update and put our spin on!,” says SLANDER about the remix, which they are releasing as a free download. “Also, it was a privilege to work together with Tucker Kreway on this one! He’s an incredible upcoming talent from Canada and everyone should check out his music!” With rumors of a SLANDER tour in North & South America on the horizon, make sure to stay tuned for more details!

SLANDER first made waves in the scene when they debuted their remix of Showtek’s “We Like to Party” in 2014, coining their unique sound. However, SLANDER has proven they are capable of so much more than remixes and a singular genre. The duo caught the attention of the industry and fans alike with their original productions and an evolved sound, as recently evidenced on “Welcome To The Fire” with Sullivan King, “I Can’t Escape” with SAYMYNAME featuring Feli Ferraro and “Happy Now.” SLANDER teamed up with American Idol finalist Juliana Chahayed on their latest release “So Long,” a catchy future bass anthem with a summertime vibe. Their ability to produce both bass-heavy headbangers and emotionally stirring melodies distinguishes them as talented, multifaceted producers, not to mention their charismatic stage presence. Together with NGHTMRE, SLANDER has made their “Gud Vibrations” event concept into a bonafide lifestyle. In 2018 they sold out their Miami Music Week’s Gud Vibrations Boat Party in less than 3 minutes, and continue to branch out and grow their brand. This is only the beginning for SLANDER, so stay tuned to see what they have up their sleeve next.
