snails ever after

After three long years of pioneering the “Vomitstep” genre, Snails finally released his long-awaited debut studio LP, The Shell. So what could be next for the Canadian party boy producer? Why, birthing his very own record label of course.

The Vomitstep pioneer has officially announced the creation of Slugz Music via his Facebook page. In what is sure to be one stop destination for slime-coated, grime-ridden bass music, one can only imagine the names that his newly minted imprint will attract.

Dion Timmer releases his dynamic track ‘Shiawase’ on Monstercat

Dion Timmer Shiawase

Netherlands-based producer Dion Timmer has accomplished more than most kids his age. By the age of 10 Timmer had discovered dubstep and realized his passion for music. Fast forward about 7 years and now he has collaborated with Snails, Bro Safari, Adventure Club and gone on tour with Excision

If that’s not enough, then hitting play on his latest release on Monstercat, “Shiawase,” should be enough to reinforce the fact that the kid is talented to say the very least. Following his theme of pitched up vocal chops along with his exceptionally technical sound design, he creates a light-hearted and dynamic song that feels as if it was exported directly from a video game.

If that cup of coffee didn’t do it’s job this morning, then Dion Timmer has you covered.

Jauz & Snails – Motherfuckers

This post was originally published on this site

Few things announce intentions as well as a strategic use of “Motherfucker.” Keenly aware of this fact, Jauz and Snails named their gripping new collaboration “Motherfuckers.”

An eponymous sample drops all sense decorum in the first few seconds as the track’s tension builds. Unsurprising, given both producers’ status at the forefront of bass-heavy music, the drop itself manages to surpass its title in terms of grinding power and propulsive energy. It’s a welcome new addition to both’s catalogue, and another win for Jauz’s Bite This label.

HARD Summer delivers mind-bending 2018 lineup loaded with special back-to-back performances

This post was originally published on this site

HARD Summer is pulling out all the stops for the upcoming edition of the festival, led by one of the event’s most memorable lineups to date. Slated for August 4 – 5, and returning to a familiar venue at Fontana’s Auto Club Speedway, HARD’s flagship event is sticking to their tried and true playbook of marquee dance and hip-hop match ups, laced together by the underground’s finest newcomer talents, dropping off a lineup of over 70 acts. Best of all, 2018 now is officially the year of the back-to-back.

Marshmello, Travis Scott, Louis The Child and Porter Robinson‘s Virtual Self project are all tapped for headlining duties, along with , Louis Vuitton’s newly-signed artistic director and moonlighting DJ Virgil Abloh, and Flosstradamus. In between massive headliners and top-card highlights that include Rick Ross, Slushii, Ekali, San Holo and more, the talent roster is littered with never-before-seen back-to-back performances that could honestly form their own insane lineup.

Diplo and Dillon Francis will share the stage for the first time, and Jauz will join Zeds Dead for a co-headlining slot, Snails and Kill The Noise are apparently allowed to perform together, despite how dangerous that sounds. Four Color Zack and DJ Craze are bringing their 2¢ project to HARD Summer as well as Escapade, Ardalan and Walker & Royce‘s Dirtybird mashup. Borgore and Getter are pairing for an unholy union, and Baauer and A-Trak are joining for another one of their rare tag-team bouts. And these are just the back-to-back sets.

Additional firepower from Mija, k?d, Tokimonsta, Madam X, Joyryde and many more round out one of HARD’s best bookings to date. And with the festival boasting added amenities, updated safety and comfort features, plus a hilarious trailer that pins Diplo as the “Dawson’s Creek looking motherf****r” he is, we’re looking at what could be the most over-the-top edition of HARD Summer yet.

Snails finally drops long-awaited ‘Break It Down’ along with wild music video

This post was originally published on this site

Back in 2015, French-Canadian bass maestro Snails was a featured guest on an episode of Skrillex‘s OWSLA Radio residency on Apple Music. Between bouts of friendly banter, the superstar DJs showcased two hours worth of tracks in their personal rotations, even going as far as previewing unreleased selects over the air for each other. One such track from Snails, affectionately nicknamed “Squishy Riddim” by Skrillex, is now finally getting an official release as “Break It Down,” on OWSLA, and while Skrill’s unofficial title didn’t stick, it still gave an accurate representation of what the listener is in for.

While the track hasn’t changed much since its infancy, the final product, which also features Space Laces and Sam King, comes with a striking new music video, serving as the follow up to Snails and Botnek‘s previously released “Waffle House” video. The accompanying feature, by Spanish filmmaker Ernest Desumbila, matches the track’s high octane kick with an animated 80’s-inspired sci-fi thrill ride which perfectly complements Snails’ belly-churning production style.
