While there’s no doubt that the duo behind SLANDER knows how to throw down some heavy drops, their newest release “Slow Motion”, co-produced with Bret James, explores deeper into their original melodic style. With layers of rolling, molten basslines and ethereal vocals, “Slow Motion” is a track that transports the listener into an entirely new world. SLANDER expertly dissipates the pressures of daily life with velvety melodies and lyrics that are sensual, wistful and blissful all at once. “Slow Motion” expertly demonstrates their ability to continuously evolve their sound while staying true to their dynamic and unique style that has earned them a devout following of listeners. SLANDER and Bret just played “Slow Motion” to a packed crowd at EDC Las Vegas’s kineticFIELD main stage. The duo will be making appearances for live sets later this summer, so make sure to catch them in a city near you!
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. 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.
Bret James, born and raised in LA, has years of experience as an artist as well as other areas of entertainment. He has been a working musician, actor and performer since 5 years old, but over the past few years, he has begun to shift his focus to solely music creating a cohesive sound with infectious energy when he performs with his live band, captivating crowds and invoking raw and relatable emotions. Notably, Bret is a part of “The13th Grade” collective, which includes stars NGHTMRE, J-Louis, SLANDER, Zacari, and more. Through his experience in this collective, he has been able to develop amazing relationships with striving talent who will support him.

Introducing Segan: Melodic DnB Producer Begins A New Chapter!
Drum & Bass breakthrough artist, Segan, just dropped an innovative new track that is unlike anything the young musician has released thus far in his meteoric three-year career. “In Your Arms” is now available on all streaming platforms.
Sam Segan, known as his stage name Segan, began making a splash in 2020 with his unforgettable remix for artist Tisoki. From there, a steady stream of singles followed as Segan established himself as an emerging talent in the drum & bass scene. His previous singles include “Champion,” “Attack Order,” and “Don’t Play.”
“In Your Arms” is among several singles the young artist has released, but it’s unlike anything fans have heard from the Los Angeles-based artist so far.
“I’m beyond excited to share my debut single, “In Your Arms,” Segan said. “This song begins a new chapter for my artist project where drum & bass and half time intersect with heavy danceable moments and emotional, memorable writing. In Your Arms is meant to scratch an itch you didn’t know was there and is the embodiment of where the Segan project is headed.”
The nearly three-minute track certainly scratches that itch. The song draws listeners in with breathy vocals and atmospheric elements over an impossibly fast beat Segan fans will love. “In Your Arms” quickly takes listeners through several movements, eventually building to an impressive peak of energetic percussion before gracefully fading out in the end.
The fast pace isn’t new for Segan’s growing community of fans, but ‘In Your Arms’ evokes some deeper emotions through lyrical writing and composition that further displays Segan’s power and versatility as an artist. The voracious track is the perfect addition to Segan’s already impressive discography, and will certainly be appreciated by drum and bass fans looking to spice up their summer playlists.
Segan happens to be one of many artists in 2022 who are once again embracing the Drum & Bass genre as a whole, which is seeing a huge surge in popularity around the globe after it first debuted three decades ago in the UK. “In Your Arms” comes at the perfect time as listeners are discovering, or rediscovering, the inventive genre of electronic music.
Thanks to Segan’s comfortable foothold in the modern Drum & Bass space, the future is bright for Segan and his contagiously energetic tracks. Don’t be surprised to see even more from the emerging LA artist as Segan continues contributing to the movement that’s shaping America’s modern Drum & Bass scene as we know it.

International Producer Biicla Seeks Home And Comfort In ‘Yes Place’ EP
International singer-songwriter, and producer, Biicla makes a major return with his second full-length LP ‘Yes Place,‘ via Good Luck Have Fun. Building up to the release with singles such as “Never be Mine” and “I’ll Be There”, the 10-track album is a showcase of the Russian producer’s creative versatility as he once again flourishes with his genre-blending talent.
Producer and multi-instrumentalist Biicla is a singer, songwriter, and at his very core, a creative. Expressing and exploring various boundaries in music, the global DJ has been developing his artistic presence in the dance music scene. Announcing his arrival with his debut LP, “No Place” in 2020, Biicla’s genre-blending ability has received critical praise from industry taste maskers such as Billboard, EDM.com, Dancing Astronaut, BBC Radio, and more. Having left a bold and positive mark on the dance music community, the promising young DJ faces great optimism as he continues to fuel momentum in his career.
“For a few years, I have been thinking about where and how to move on. Constant trips alone, a new team, new friends, and endless thoughts in my head, as well as my first performances in America. All of this was like in the movies, and naturally it affected my music.
The album “No Place” was about finding myself and in 2022 I think I found myself. I just decided to create a light dance album for you that will touch you to the depths of your soul, because it is inspired by the new events and people I have met during this time. I share my fresh look at electronic music with you in this new album. Its full name was: “Yes! I think I found a place”, but I decided to shorten it and leave it to just “Yes Place” as opposed to the last album “No Place”.” — Biicla
A 10-track studio album, Yes Place is a full-on display of Biicla’s unique sound and indefinite musical capability. Facing a tremendous positive shift in his life and career, this collection of tracks shows obvious contrast in title with his previous LP, “No Place”. Previously named “Yes! I think I found a place”, the greater symbolic meaning behind the album is another attraction to be enjoyed by the fans. In the project itself, Biicla delivers a sonically diverse and entertaining project as he delves into different genres while still maintaining and constructing a cohesive and captivating sound. Featuring a wealth of inspiration and features from all over the electronic music spectrum, the combination of dynamic and creative sound design gives the project an original twist. Immersing listeners in an adventurous dance music playing field, features from artists like Rome in Silver and Kroy are pleasant guests as their stylistic and technical production further decorates the project. Continuing to build an exciting tracklist for his upcoming summer appearances, the original and extensive “Yes Place” by Biicla is an evident sign of his continuous growth as an artist and an individual.
