SLANDER is notorious for creating hard bass music, but they show a fraction of their sensitive side on “Happy Now,” their newest release on Monstercat. “Happy Now” is a bittersweet, nostalgic ode to the blissful times of a broken relationship; SLANDER embodies the feeling of wistfulness with cinematic basslines and airy melodies that complement its overall emotive tone. Basshead fans will still dig the sheer power of the track while its gentler construction may gain some new fans for the successful duo. On “Happy Now” and their prior release “I Can’t Escape,” (in collaboration with SAYMYNAME) SLANDER have been experimenting with different sounds, proving their ability to metamorphosize while still maintaining their authentic sound. For a chance to hear “Happy Now” and more party-starting beats live, catch SLANDER on tour at https://slanderofficial.com/pages/tour as well as at Gud Vibrations Boat Party during Miami Music Week on March 22.
SLANDER first made waves in the scene when they debuted their remix of Showtek’s “We Like to Party” in 2014, coining their “heaven trap” sound, a blend of trance and trap. However, SLANDER has proven they are capable of so much more than remixes and a singular genre. In 2017, the duo has been making waves with their original productions and an evolved sound, as evidenced on “Superhuman” featuring Eric Leva, “We Out” with Danish producer Stoltenhoff and their rendition of Major Lazer’s “Know No Better” on Mad Decent. Their ability to produce both bass-heavy headbangers and emotionally stirring melodies distinguishes them as talented, multifaceted producers, not to mention their insane stage presence. SLANDER just wrapped up their worldwide Superhuman tour and has been back in the studio making more fire music featuring all-star collaborations, like recently released “I Can’t Escape” with SAYMYNAME. This is only the beginning of what SLANDER has planned for 2018, so stay tuned to see what they have up their sleeve next.

Fondly referred to as “the people’s DJ” by his most loyal fans, Le Youth is proud to welcome you to the ‘About Us’ experience, a new conceptual run of tour dates designed to bring people together, create intimate moments, and remove the literal and figurative separation between himself and his fans. ‘About Us’ will embody everything Le Youth is at his core: unapologetically himself and fearless when challenging the status quo.

With an all-new production set-up (at the larger events) one time only city-exclusive merchandise and much more, every ‘About Us’ show will encourage fans to leave their inhibitions at the door for a night of unforgettable, unfiltered, intimate musical memories like none other.
“It’s not about me, it’s about us,” he passionately states, accentuating that without you, Le Youth wouldn’t and couldn’t be who/what it is today. With the release of his debut album last year and the culmination of a 3-year sonic journey, combined with a global touring schedule, 2023 will bring Le Youth closer to his fans and community than ever before.
Ushering in a new year of infinite possibilities, Le Youth is proud to kick things off with a brand-new collaboration with Jerro. Featuring vocalist Lizzy Land, “Lost” is out now via This Never Happened.
“Lost” is everything fans have come to expect from Le Youth, uninhibited bliss and creative expression manifested into musical form. The LA-based artist and Jerro combine for a soul-stirring arrangement that radiates warmth. Lizzy Land’s vocals gently embrace the listener’s senses, generating a sense of profound nostalgia while delicately intertwining with a soft, heart-warming bed of instrumentals. Firmly entrenched as a household name in the melodic house genre, Le Youth’s consistent quality is without question.
Stay tuned for About Us Pt 2. and much more music to come.

Feel-Good Hit Alert: Steve Aoki, Regard & mazie Drop “New York”
The EDM world is about to be rocked with the latest collaboration between Steve Aoki, Regard, and mazie. The trio creates a feel-good anthem for the city of “New York,” something that will entice listeners everywhere!
Prepare to enjoy a fresh production that combines delicious beats, nostalgic vibes, and sincere lyrics. Definitely, the unparalleled production styles from these two geniuses with mazie’s velvet-like soft vocals are sure to get you singing along.
Indeed, her voice is truly mesmerizing, with a rich, warm, and well-rounded tone that is not harsh or overly aggressive.
In my opinion, I believe that this release is one of the most significant in the Dance-Pop genre for this month. And, of course, it also has the potential to be played on radio stations.
Furthermore, the original lyrics express confusion and frustration in a relationship where the partner only wants to be together at parties and is not showing commitment. Eventually, “New York” is the place to discuss the future of the relationship and clear the doubts.
Overall. the standout feature of the new music video is undoubtedly the futuristic party scene, featuring Steve Aoki as a holographic DJ. This is just a glimpse of what tomorrow’s celebrations will be like…
