While a love song isn’t necessarily what you’d expect from the inventor of a genre called “Vomitstep,” that’s exactly what Snails has created on his newest release “Magnets”. Produced in collaboration with heavyweights Zeds Dead and live electronic duo Akylla, “Magnets” is a rollercoaster ride through a passionate relationship, complete with dramatic vocals, stabbing percussion and goosebump-inducing bass. To sum up the track, Snails says “”Magnets’ is all about putting together beautiful melodies and vocals with intense basslines to create a powerful love song. The mix of all our styles complimented each other exactly how we wanted and so happy how the song came out.” A romantic ballad for the modern basshead, “Magnets” is guaranteed to create some serious flames on the dancefloor this fall. It’s out now as a co-release between Snails’s Slugz Music and Zeds Dead’s Deadbeats labels.
Just in time to showcase his recent releases – such as “Magnets” and “The Shell: Remixes” LP – Snails is about to embark on his massive 52 date North American tour, which will feature his brand new stage The Shell 2.0. The stage is being called a “holographic bass music experience powered by groundbreaking production” and is done in part with Beama Visuals, the stage production wizards for Excision and other impressive clientele. The tour kicks on October 5th at Snails’s own festival Sluggtopia at the iconic Red Rock Amphitheater, where “The Shell 2.0” is being unveiled to the world. Expect to hear some heavy tracks from Snails’s recent remix album of “The Shell”, which features some guest artists who will perform at Sluggtopia, including Funtcase, Space Jesus and SVDDEN DEATH among others. Also, 12th Planet, Kill the Noise, Liquid Stranger, Cookie Monsta and Voyd will be joining Snails throughout the entire “The Shell 2.0” tour on select dates as well as SVDDEN DEATH, HEKLER and UBUR as touring support. Check out “The Shell 2.0” tour dates below and grab tickets to a city near you!
Snails is truly an artist whose music has no boundaries. After spending years crafting music featuring the most grimy sounds and unrelenting bass imaginable in his small apartment, his “Vomitstep” sound found a home on labels like OWSLA, Dim Mak and Monstercat – along with a cult following that truly embraces it. Snails recently launched his label Slugz Music as home for his music and others’ that is as outrageous as they want it to be. As collaborators on “Magnets,” Zeds Dead add their pioneering touch of bass music that has developed into their iconic sound over the last decade through classics like “White Satin” and “Lost You.” Their consistent stream of quality releases has won them the adoration of millions of fans and praise from the biggest names in music. Following the release of their long awaited debut album in 2016, Zeds Dead have continued to surprise old fans and gain new ones with a series of collaborations with Illenium, Ganja White Night, Jauz, and 1000 Volts (Redman & Jayceeoh). Zeds Dead runs their own label Deadbeats, recently released singles from Devault, DNMO, GG Magree, Hunter Siegel, an EP from 1788-L, and a critically lauded debut album from Shades entitled “In Praise of Darkness”. The organic melodies and emotive vocals on “Magnets” are compliments of electronic live duo Akylla, who join forces with Snails again after working with him on 2017’s “Only Want U.” “Magnets” is bursting with the talent of these three artistic groups, so don’t miss the chance to be among the first to listen!

Franky Nuts Releases Epic Remix Of Flux Pavilion’s Hit!
Starting the new year with a dose of melodic dubstep, Dutch producer Franky Nuts gives a remix to Flux Pavilion‘s hit track “Somebody Else” ft. GLNNA on the label head’s Circus Records. Franky, who has crafted a unique but powerful style by fusing heavy and ariose sounds, delivers his signature style through a cinematic opening that showcases the original track’s ethereal vocals, building to a crescendo filled with serrating synths, stabbing percussions and sonorous harmonies. The remix keeps the integrity of the original version while adding a unique flair, making it a tune both Flux and Franky Nuts diehard fans can embrace on the dancefloor and beyond. The remix of “Somebody Else” is Franky Nuts’s first release of the year, following a successful 2019 that included releases on Circus and Jauz’s Bite This! imprint.
Franky Nuts is a name that the international bass scene only recently became familiar with, but one that seems like it’s here to stay. Hailing from the Netherlands, the DJ and producer exploded onto the circuit in 2019 with a unique musical style that merges powerful vocals and harmonies into a deadly combination. His sound resonated with both fans and tastemakers alike, as Franky Nuts signed to Flux Pavillion’s Circus Records and quickly reached several million plays on Spotify in the span of the summer months. Renowned artists including The Chainsmokers, NGHTMRE, Zeds Dead, Skrillex, Excision, and more have supported him; Franky has made stage appearances with Jauz to perform his tracks with him at Parookaville and Bootshaus in 2019. Ending 2019 with 11 releases in total on his home base Circus Records as well as guest appearances on Bite This! and remixes for the likes of Doctor P, Delta Heavy, Modestep, among others, Franky Nuts is carving out a niche for himself in the electronic music world. We can’t wait to see what this exciting emerging artist comes up with next!

LISTEN NOW: NGHTMRE Releases A VIP Remix Of “CASH COW”
The trap hit “CASH COW” by NGHTMRE and Gunna got enough attention by achieving millions of streams on Spotify. With this in mind, it was necessary to release a VIP remix. For this purpose, DJ Khaled’s former producer Blvk Jvck joined forces to the project in order to add a touch of Dubstep to the whole mix. In that regard, these artists speed up the original version with the proper dose of distorted bass and wobbles.
Obviously, once DJs play this remix at the clubs, you and the crowd will go insane immediately. Somehow, it feels heavy and powerful because it is charged with exhilarating energy. I like the way each artist does their bit to blend all their sounds. As a result, here’s a banging hybrid you’ve never heard before… Enjoy it!

LISTEN NOW: Phocust Shares Bass-Heavy Two-Track EP, ‘Space Wonk’
Tyler Shiffer aka Phocust has dropped a new EP in collaboration with producers Dyatic and Nasty Purple. These creative minds approach these tunes with bass-heavy drops and loud Dubstep as you would like them to be. Both cuts “Space Wonk” and “Mind Reader” show their willingness to deliver overwhelming energy that surely pumps through your veins. I know it all depends on your mood, but in my case, this is the type of music that makes me wanna get up and move.
Sonically, it’s intense on different levels, the first track is purely instrumental, and the other one uses the power of vocals. Not for nothing, this EP is on high rotation on radio stations and clubs alike. Having performed at important festivals like HeavenFest, Global Dance Festival, and WinterFest, it is fair to say they are receiving a lot of support from the dance music community lately. Listen to the ‘Space Wonk’ EP below.

LSDREAM & Shlump Give Dubstep Fans Their Best EP — ‘UNIVERSAL WUB’
‘UNIVERSAL WUB’ is a fresh release via WAKAAN that comes packaged with four amazing tracks. In addition to wubs, this EP produced by LSDREAM & Shlump also includes frenetic synths, wonky beats, bass, and sci-fi-influenced sounds. What’s more, Dubstep fans will get hooked immediately due to its trippy nature. The cover art looks kinda psychedelic, and it matches the futuristic concept behind this project. Clearly, it revolves around extraterrestrial stuff, and somehow it’ll launch you into a new sonic dimension. If I had to pick my favorite, I’d definitely go for “Starchild”. It begins pleasantly enough, and there’s a good contrast between the complex/dense soundscapes and Sarah Hudson’s sexy feminine vocals. Grab your free download here.
