Gryffin has soared to some of the highest peaks in the electronic terrain. His latest release alongside SLANDER is no exception. Their latest collaboration is entitled “All You Need To Know,” with Swedish singer/songwriter Calle Lehmann is the featured vocalist.

The lofty expectations for the song were definitively met thanks to its melodic allure blended with an underlying drum combination that crescendos alongside Lehmann’s vocals into a euphoric future bass release. SLANDER is known for a diverse output including grimy dubstep releases that are appropriately paired with light commercial crossover tracks. “All You Need To Know” falls into the latter category: the perfect song to carry listeners into spring thanks to its cheerful energy and polarizing vocal layers.

NGHTMRE and A$AP Ferg have a menacing new collaboration under the hood

Whether he’s collaborating with DJ Diesel and Lil Jon or the Chainsmokers, NGHTMRE seems to have something under the hood that manages to keep fans on their toes at all times. This time around, the ace up NGHTMRE’s sleeve comes by way of a new collaboration with none other than A$AP Ferg. The Gud Vibrations helmer announced the new track and music video on his social media channels. Ferg and NGHTMRE’s new track is dubbed “REDLIGHT,” and it will be released on March 28.

Given the new tune’s release proximity to Ultra Music Festival, it begs the question as to if fans can expect A$AP Ferg to make an appearance during NGHTMRE’s back-to-back set with SLANDER at the festival for what would surely be a raucous live debut of the new joint cut. From the brief teaser video that was posted online, the “Grave” producer seemingly returns to his menacingly hard-hitting form on “REDLIGHT,” and with the assistance of the Trap Lord himself, NGHTMRE might have one of his biggest tracks of the year on deck just in time for one of his biggest festival outings of 2019.

Shaq, NGHTMRE, and Lil Jon prove to be a triple threat with new track ‘BANG’

Shaqulle O’Neal retired years ago from his basketball career, but whether it’s due to brand endorsements or his recent DJ gig as DJ Diesel, the former pro player can’t seem to stop making headlines. His new collaboration with NGHTMRE and Lil Jon is a continuation of just this, but their track “BANG” is not one to write off. NGHTMRE and Shaq’s influence in the new release is apparent, with its pulsing bass backdrop fused with ringing dubstep rhythms providing an ideal frame Lil Jon’s signature chants.

NGHTMRE speaks about his collaboration with Shaq in an official release, saying, “I met Shaq for the first time in Las Vegas.” He continues, “He came to one of my sets, and we immediately got along and shared our love for bass music. I’ve always played tons of Lil Jon music in my live shows, and now I get to play our own collaboration! Being able to work on music with Lil Jon and Shaq was literally a dream come true for me.”

“BANG” is out now on NGHTMRE’s own label with SLANDER, Gud Vibrations.

Texas-bred trio, WAVEDASH, have illustrated they are a bass-breathing force to be reckoned with thanks to the release of their four-track EP, Opening Ceremony.

After monstrous collaborations with both NGHTMRE and SLANDER, they have fittingly released the EP on the aforementioned artists’ jointly owned label, Gud Vibrations. The compilation falls right in the sweet spot of grimy bass and catchy melodies. Title track, “Opening Ceremony” of the EP was the first song ever released on the label.

The final release of the EP, “The Same,” is now available, and it rounds out the EP with smooth, captivating vocals and soothing sonic moments before a hard-hitting drop. The track adds melodic relief and a new dynamic to the rest of the EP, which is characterized by performance-ready dubstep displays.

The trio spoke to Dancing Astronaut about Opening Ceremony and the final track release, “The Same.”

We’re so excited that ‘The Same’ is finally out as the last track on our EP, Opening Ceremony, on Gud Vibrations. The outro is particularly special as it reflects where we want our sound to go. The aesthetic for Opening Ceremony has been based on a future where bike racing is seen as a premiere event, like the Olympics.

In October of 2018, Seven Lions teamed up with SLANDER and Dabin to release blissful single, “First Time,” on Seven Lions’ imprint Ophelia Records. Dylan Matthew is the vocalist on the original track, and he has come forward with his own acoustic version of the song, showcasing the beautiful melody in a new light.

Matthew gives his stunning vocals the spotlight, filtering out the electronic elements in favor of powerful piano melodies that serve as the perfect complement to his vocals. He has also ensured that there will be no questioning his talent thanks to the fact that he live recorded the music video for the release featuring simply himself playing the piano. “First Time” was not the singer’s first electronic collaboration, having previously worked with ARMNHMR and Nolan van Lith on “Alone” in addition to SLANDER and Kayzo on release “Without You.”

SLANDER deliver their final track from ‘Headbangers Ball’ EP

SLANDER have delivered the final track from their Headbangers Ball EP: “Hate Being Alone,” featuring Dylan Matthew, on Monstercat. This marks the duo’s third collaboration with the R&B vocalist, having previously worked with him on “Without You” with Kayzo and “First Time” with Seven Lions and Dabin. The “heaven trap” maestros up the contrast ante, combining Matthew’s sultry vocals amidst glittering guitar melodies with hard-hitting, headbanging bass.

“This song started as a drop we made last February,” the duo says of the track. “Since then, we shelved the project for a bit to finish a few more urgent works in progress, but finishing the song was always on our mind. Then this fall we finally got the missing piece: Dylan Matthew’s incredible vocal line! This vocal took the track into a completely different place and we were thrilled that it was given this new life. We went in and re-arranged and re-structured the entire song to fit his vocal and we couldn’t be happier with the result. This is our first solo original dubstep song and we are so excited to finally give to you guys! We hope you enjoy this final piece to the Headbangers Ball EP!”

The EP culminates with stark contrasts of light and heavy, hot and cold, life and death, etc. Each track places fluffy vocals and lush melodies at the helm of harder-hitting electronic elements, from dubstep and future bass, with featured artists such as Spag Heddy and Elle Vee on “Running To You” and RIOT on “You Don’t Even Know Me.”

After launching their Gud Vibrations label with frequent collaborator, NGHTMRE, the duo continues to pump out their own projects while supporting up-and-coming artists such as WAVEDASH and QUEST.
