Self-proclaimed founder of grimy dubstep genre “vomitstep,” Snails is back with an eight-track EP packed to the brim with powerhouse collaborations courtesy of his own label Slugz Music. Snails is already an extremely accomplished bass music producer by himself, but combining his signature sound with the likes of Barely Alive, Kill the Noise, Sullivan King, Wooli, Subtronics, Carbin, and more has created a truly one-of-a-kind EP filled with dubstep anthems.

Snails’ career rose to new heights in 2019 with massive performances at EDC Las Vegas, as well as Kill the Noise collaborative project Kill the Snails taking over Red Rocks Amphitheater. Now, this eclectic escargot is wrapping up the tail-end of his World of Slime headline tour that features his one-of-a-kind holographic Shell stage production. See his remaining tour dates here.

The 23-track album is bursting with creativity and talent.

Good Morning Mix: Revisit Adventure Club’s explosive ‘Superheroes Anonymous 6’ mixAdventure Club Facebook Official

Anyone who knows Adventure Club has heard or has at least vaguely associated them with their mixtape series, Superheroes Anonymous. The duo released the first edition of Superheroes Anonymous back in 2013; the rest is history. Since then, the mixes have grown virtually synonymous with Adventure Club themselves, with the two producers putting forward the best of melodic dubstep, electro-house, trap, and hip-hop into one hour of cathartic heaven.

Now, we revisit one of Adventure Club’s most iconic mixes, Superheroes Anonymous 6: Road to Red Rocks. Road to Red Rocks showcases Adventure Club’s versatility at its best, with each track traversing through a sonic journey. Starting off with proper intensity, the mix delivers bass music from Barely Alive, Zomboy, and NGHTMRE and trap tunes like Styles&Complete & EXSSV’s “Starstruck” and Father’s “Wrist” before leveling out into melodic picks from San Holo, Sweater Beats, and Cashmere Cat. Adventure Club takes the opportunity to shift the momentum from filth to feels and energy to stillness over the course of the mix, incorporating their beloved signature sound throughout and gracefully closing out with Gallant‘s “Open Up”.

Barely Alive mix it up on new album, ‘Odyssey’

Barely Alive mix it up on new album, ‘Odyssey’Barely Alive Facebook

In their first LP since 2015, Disciple dynamic duo Barely Alive hold nothing back.

The versatile producers hyped Odyssey for weeks leading up to its Aug. 13 release, going so far as to literally release all the songs at once in a 35-second clip that layered all of the album’s 10 tracks over top of each other. The glorious mess luckily wasn’t a indicative of what was to come: an expansive, exceptional collection of tracks that span from drum & bass to their beloved dubstep wobbles.

They’ve tapped a ridiculous range of talent for the LP, including Great Good Fine Ok for the unexpectedly groovy “Deeper In Love” to Mad Hed City for the fast-paced fury of “Warrior.” Other collaborators include the rap talents of Splitbreed and Iamsu!, the bouncy rhythms of Nah Mean, and the smooth vocals of Yves Paquet.

Odyssey is all over the place in the best possible way. From ’80s influences to slick R&B stylings to filthy bass, this album delivers something for fans of all areas of the electronic music sphere — polished off with top-notch production and a cheeky attitude.

Learn how this dexterous duo came to be in a new video from Disciple, below.

Dexter’s Beat Laboratory Vol. 51

Dexter’s Beat Laboratory Vol. 51Deters Beat Lab@0.

Dexter’s Beat Laboratory is a weekly collection of songs from DA music editor and staff writer Robyn Dexter. With a taste that can only be described as eclectic — to say nothing of a name that lends itself to punnery — DA is happy to present a selection of tracks personally curated by Dexter for your listening pleasure.


Barely Alive‘s latest is completely unexpected and so unbelievably funky. The dubstep hard-hitters can generally be found creating some of the filthiest wobbles in today’s scene, but their brand new LP sees them painting a canvas of incredibly varied genres. From this groovy collaboration with Great Good Fine Ok to drum & bass on “Warrior” and hip-hop on “Ride Out,” the duo are taking their style to new heights in such a refreshing way.


Prismo gets down and dirty on his latest release, “Solo.” This power anthem puts Jason Derulo’s “Riding Solo” to shame, packing a much grittier, stronger punch. Prismo’s categorized this track as alternative rock, and it certainly leans much more than way than his previous electronic releases. Turns out this is the first of many new tracks in the Austin, Texas artist’s next chapter. “This is the first single from the next chapter of Prismo,” he says in the track’s description. “It’s a statement of my evolution and the passion behind my project.”


And from here on out, we merge into full-fledged drum & bass. New Music Friday has been good to the drum & bass community, delivering heaters from T & Sugah, Matrix & Futurebound, Friction, and so many more. This first one from T & Sugah is the second part of their new two-track Viper Recordings EP. The 3/4 pattern makes for an interesting touch, catching the listener’s ear with its unique beat. Subtle builds and detail-oriented breaks beautifully showcase why this Dutch duo has been on the rise.


Viper Recordings has also delivered the latest from the UK’s famed Matrix & Futurebound: “TARDIS.” They build anticipation impeccably in the introduction, leading the listener down a dark hallway straight into a frenzied drum & bass beat. It’s vivid and eerie, packed with intense, pounding bass and a furious melody. Unfortunately, it’s not out in its entirety yet, but the two-minute clip already previews the immaculate sound design these two demonstrate time and time.


Described by Pete Tong as “one of the big dogs,” Drum & Bass Hall of Famer Friction never ceases to thrill. In his latest, the Brighton producer has remixed UK legends The Prodigy and their song “Need Some1.” This rework is perhaps one of the most intense and creative drum & bass tracks I’ve heard in recent months, further hyping The Prodigy’s forthcoming No Tourists album, due out later this year.

Panda Eyes, Barely Alive, and Virtual Riot smash their new collab, ‘Triforce’

Panda Eyes, Barely Alive, and Virtual Riot team up for the glittery dubstep collaboration, “Triforce.” With video game synths, happy horns, lush keys, and twinkling arpeggios, the track starts off in a blissful state before shifting towards the dark side. There’s a stark contrast between the verse and hook, using a Skrillex-esque vocal build that unwinds into old-school dubstep.

Panda Eyes makes his Disciple Records debut alongside label alumni, Barely Alive and Virtual Riot. Each combine their gritty bass sound design to create this headbanging oasis of unadulterated joy and grit.

The 22-year-old Swiss bass producer teamed up with dubstep veterans in anticipation of his Isolation EP. Barley Alive and Virtual Riot are regular collaborators, so adding Panda Eyes to the mix must be a nod to the label newcomer.

Barely Alive are living on new Splitbreed collaboration, ‘Bad Thang’

Barely Alive - Bad Thang

Barely Alive is flourishing.

As one of the hottest dubstep duos in the world right now, the Massachusetts boys and proud Disciple affiliate are living their best life, despite a moniker that might suggest otherwise.

With countless Beatport No. 1’s, a massive slew of collaborations, and remixes for Destroid, Zomboy, Virtual Riot, and more, it’s hard to deny that the duo’s one of the most exciting ascensions in the bass pantheon.  2018’s proving a banner year for the boys, who’ve already collaborated with Ghastly on a high-velocity track. Though it’s not as heavy as some of their earlier material, “Bad Thang” proves Barely Alive’s sonic range is becoming increasingly all-encompassing, and that’s not a bad thing at all.
