SNAILS, Kill The Noise, and Sullivan King are back together on ‘Front 2 Back’

SNAILS, Kill The Noise, and Sullivan King have teamed up to deliver their next heavy-hitting masterpiece in the form of “Front 2 Back.” The single follows previous collaborative effort “Shake The Ground.” Fans of the infusion of screamo and electronic music will find a small slice of heaven in the song, which lures listeners in with Sullivan King’s gut-wrenching vocals from the single’s first note.

Initially, the song seems to be a primarily metal release until a surprise drop engulfs the listeners with the heaviest sounds the three producers can come together to yield. “Front 2 Back” will leave listeners’ heads spinning as bass drops, pulsing metal accents, and dubstep accents overtake the final few minutes of the release.

Kill The Noise speaks about the collaboration in an official release, stating, “Even when this was still a demo it went off so hard every single time. Literally the first time I played it people heard the hook once and were singing along. Really cool moment for sure! Really stoked to work with these guys again we always have a lot of fun workin’ on ideas together.”

The track is out on SNAILS’s own Slugz Music imprint.

It’s most important day of the week: New Music Friday. With the overwhelming amount of tunes hitting the airwaves today, Dancing Astronaut has you covered with the latest edition of The Hot 25.

At long last, Madeon’s sophomore LP, Good Faith, has arrived.

GRiZ’s Bangers[4].Zip has arrived, featuring songs like “Tiger Kingdom Space Camp,” and MJ Cole’s remixed Flume and Vera Blue’s “Rushing Back.” Friction delivers some drum ‘n’ bass goodness on “Good To Me,” and Eli Brown puts his own spin on Dom Dolla’s “San Frandisco.” Snails, Kill The Noise, and Sullivan King team up for a new mega-collab, “Front 2 Back,” and NGHTMRE and Gunna bring the heat with “CASH COW.” Gammer returns to Monstercat for “Brostep Strikes Back,” and Klingande releases his long-awaited debut LP, The Album. Oliver Heldens links with Firebeatz, Schella, and Carla Monroe for “Lift Me Up,” and Dirty South and Marion Amira prove a formidable force on “All I Need.” Dillon Nathaniel goes deep on a new tech house heater, “Do It Again,” and R3HAB teams up with ZAYN and Jungleboi on “Flames.”

As each week brings a succession of new music from some of electronic music’s biggest artists, here’s a selection of tracks that shouldn’t be missed this NMF.

DA’s Supernatural Selections: A Halloween playlist [Best of 2019]

DA’s Supernatural Selections: A Halloween playlist [Best of 2019]Rezz

Amid the season of spiders, ghosts, and demons (oh, my!) Dancing Astronaut presents some of the most delightfully decadent tracks released solely in 2019. The dastard design of the dark arts is never something to scoff at. Dampened tones, haunting harmonies, and menacing drums take the driver’s seat this year, of course, as our annual harrowing Halloween playlist rears its head yet again. In light of the recent mid-tempo Renaissance—and the formidable sounds that followed—this year’s compilation is fashioned from entirely up-to-the-minute offerings.

Highlights include cult leader, REZZ, in the form of two tracks from her most recent project, Beyond The Senses; a tantalizing taste from fiendish newcomer, Kim Petras‘s horror-themed TURN OFF THE LIGHT studio album; chilling sound design from G-Jones, Eprom, KOAN Sound, and Flume; eerie melodies from Gesaffelstein, deadmau5, NGHTMRE, ZHU, and Wolfgang Gartner; and many more ghoulishly heavy hitters.

Other notable mentions include i_o and Grimes new hit thriller, “Violence,” a remix from Knife Party‘s “Ghost Train” after their first EP in four years, and the monstrous “If My Eyes Are Vampires (Your Body Is My Sunlight)” featuring TYNAN, arriving from Sullivan King‘s debut long play. Play this at your next Halloween party or in your pumpkin-print pajamas. But proceed at your peril: these tracks are not for the feeble-hearted.

The wait is over, the time is nigh: Sullivan King has released his highly-anticipated debut album, Show Some Teeth, on Kannibalen Records. Bass music doused in heavy metal scream throughout the project as King’s supporting cast includes a sloth of low-end contemporaries such as TYNAN, Kompany, SWARM, and more vocalists and producers engaging in the dark arts.

The 15-track long play showcases the live performer’s creative studio strengths inciting a verity of styles that place the electronic metal behemoth in an upper echelon of producers.

With his iconic hybrid production, electrifying guitar riffs, raw vocals, and vigorous songwriting. Though bridging the gap between alternative mainstream and electronic music, Sullivan King, is making his mark and continuing his rise to the top of the dance music world.

Sullivan King shares fervid title track from debut album, ‘Show Some Teeth’

Sullivan King shares fervid title track from debut album, ‘Show Some Teeth’Sullivan King Photo Anthony Chuang

Before his debut album, Show Some Teeth, arrives, Sullivan King first bares his with the release of the LP’s title track. “Show Some Teeth” is a raucous, speaker pummeling production packed with aggressive bass. On the electronic end are pounding, dubstep driven drops, but “Show Some Teeth” is not a single that can be solely designated as a dance cut.

This record fully embodies everything I want in my music. It’s me showing everything I have to give to fans and the world

-SK

Produced alongside fellow bass authority, Kompany, the raucous record proves to be a genre transcending effort in its use of heavy metal technics. Vehemently delivered vocals and supporting drum and guitar work audibly advertise themselves as elements borrowed from metal and rock, two styles that have consistently colored King releases.

KANNIBALEN RECORDS will welcome Show Some Teeth on October 18. Streamers can experience the ferocity of a Sullivan King live set on the storied bass producer’s headlining Thank You For Raging tour. The initiative will take King through a number of major cities from October through February, including Washington, DC, Los Angeles, and Chicago, among others. Tickets and a full list of stops are available, here. More locations will be announced on October 7.
