It’s been an exciting journey thus far for Slushii. The emerging young beatmaker, born Julian Scanlan, has deservedly settled in as one of the industry’s most lauded new talents after a meteoric breakthrough campaign over the last year and a half. Coming off the heels of a brilliant return to Ultra performing at the Worldwide Stage, Slushii is keeping the momentum high, following up with the release of his brand new Find Your Wings EP.

Blending bass-heavy and euphoric, upbeat melodies with a hint of 8-bit inspiration, plus the use of his own vocals, Slushii has proven to be a force behind the console, showcasing his versilitity on the new collection. Speaking on the new EP, Slushii told Dancing Astronaut, 

“This EP was really a culmination of what I grew up listening to mixed with some of the craziest sound design I think I’ve ever done. Super stoked for peeps to hear it.”

The EP is seven tracks of headbanger-approved dubstep from front to back, culminating on tracks like “Bounce,” a menacing “Fired Up,” and the EP’s lead single “Where I’m At.”  Ultra proved to be a perfect testing ground for Slushii’s new solo products, and between his recent outing in Miami and his debut LP last year, Out of LightSlushii’s upward trajectory seems to be as steep as ever.

The new independent EP, released March 30, is available now on all digital streaming platforms. Showing off his versitile hand in the studio and an ear for heavier sonics than we’re used to from him, enjoy Slushii’s dabble in dubstep on Find Your Wings.

Newest Slushii and Marshmello collaboration explores emo side of EDM

This post was originally published on this site

Frequent collaborators Marshmello and Slushii are the cutting edge of dolin out poppy, buoyant dance music to the masses. Their Pulitzer Prize-winning first collaboration, “Twinbow,” was received as a charming ballad which left both fans and critics yearning for more.

Now the two confectionary producers teamed up once again, but this time in the attempt to bring in a completely new canon to their candy-pop style of EDM. That’s right, “There X2” ventures into the realm of punk-rock with its emo-affected vocals meldedonto the pair’s party bass elements. Bright arpeggios, toy box synths, and reverb bass mark the track, bringing a hopeful appeal to a genre that is typically known for fast-paced, hard-edged melodies and stripped-down instrumentation.

Given Marshmello’s last single, “You & Me,” where the producer debuted his own singing, perhaps this new merging of sounds shouldn’t have been unexpected.

BTS — MIC Drop (Slushii remix)

This post was originally published on this site

Slushii‘s burst onto the EDM scene has been felt in waves, and the Los Angeles based producer shows no signs of slowing down. With a debut album — Out Of Light — released in August, massive performances at festivals such as Lollapalooza, Tomorrowland, & EDC Orlando, and a plethora of incoming original releases and remixes, the ascendant producer is hitting the ground running into 2018.

On his newest remix to “MIC Drop,” Slushii injects his own carbonated blend of EDM ear candy into the hip hop original, forsaking its ominous overtones for bubbly, anime-inspired tones. The track’s invigorating synths will surely impact the dancefloor during the upcoming festival season.

Breakout artist Crankdat teamed up with bass phenomenon Jauz for the collaborative “I Hold Still,” — a track that graced mainstages across the world both before its much-anticipated release. Slushii has decided to give fans a Christmas treat with the release of his VIP remix of the track, and also provides vocals of his own.

Bouncing xylophone-esque chords and heavily processed vocals open the track into one of the most intense drops from the LA-based producer this year. While maintaining the same flow and sound as the original, Slushii’s rendition of “I Hold Still” can only be described as a dirtier version of the already hard-hitting track.

Fans can be sure they will be hearing this VIP remix of the hit song in festival and club sets to come in 2018. The track is available as a free download.

Slushii releases comedic new track to accompany Drone Vlog

This post was originally published on this site

Watch Slushii experiment with a drone in his new Vlog and accompanying song titled “Drone Song.” The producer, real name is Julian Scanlan, films as he tries to make a drone fly in a parking lot. He produced a song to accompany the video, and while “Drone Song” certainly won’t be winning him a Grammy, it does have a certain unforgettable appeal.

On Twitter Scanlan writes “New Vlog on YouTube. I dare you to watch the full thing and not get the song stuck in your head.”

The song is out on Soundcloud and mixes synthesized vocal chants with a groovy backdrop. The full Vlog includes the track, and takes viewers on Scanlan’s struggling drone flying journey. Applause to Slushii for acknowledging the true purpose of this creation with “Drone Song’s” genre on Soundcloud tagged as #comedy.

Slushii – underwater

This post was originally published on this site

Slushii dug into his archives for a new release, dubbed “underwater.” Given the producer’s penchant for party-flavored bass tunes, “underwater” marks a significant departure in style.

Even in comparison to his previous track “Sleep,” in which the producer admitted to wrestling with a bout of depression, “underwater” takes on a fully melancholic tone. True to its title, the track does feature a hazy style, with numerous of its production elements bleeding into each other. Further, the vocals are stylistically listless and fit the production’s minimal structure well.
