SLANDER & American Idol’s Juliana Chahayed Team Up For New Track “So Long”
Seemingly ever extending an impressive run of memorable singles to soundtrack 2018, SLANDER return today with their latest, “So Long”, a see-ya-never anthem penned with American Idol finalist Juliana Chahayed. Initially emerging as a shy day-dreamy headphone jam, the tune quickly gains confidence, propelled by a driving backbeat that lifts off to a bursting full bloomed realization, revealing itself as a bouncy tropical-tinged summer jam of self-empowerment. Opting to eschew the harder sides of their sound for a skillful touch that perfectly compliments the “catch flights, not feels” sentiment of Chahayed’s lyrics, SLANDER instead showcase the power of restraint, with infectious end results that land squarely on the target of infinite replayability. Good luck with your future ex, because they’re blasting this one with the top down till they can’t even remember your name. “So Long” is out now on Monstercat.
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 made waves 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”. 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.

Lose Yourself In Kuma Pop’s Electrifying Flamenco Fusion!
Kuma Pop has an incredible talent for combining the traditional rhythms, harmonies, and melodies of Flamenco with electronic elements. The resulting fusion on “Amanecer” is a truly original interpretation that is guaranteed to ignite your passion for dance.
Furthermore, the beats are so irresistible that it’s certain you won’t be able to resist moving your feet to the music.

Believe me when I say that the entire composition has completely captivated me, making it Kuma Pop’s best work to date. Interestingly enough, his previous release, “Por Dentro,” also features sound textures that are very similar and just as impressive.
Kuma Pop is a Spanish producer, teacher, and father who is professionally based between two countries – Spain and the USA.
Above all, he continues to demonstrate his extraordinary vision for the Flamenco fusion which defies boundaries, inviting listeners to lose themselves in the hypnotic groove.
