SLANDER & Kompany deliver heavy bass hitter, ‘Broken’Slander 2018 Cr Koury Angelo Billboard 1548

Just as SLANDER kicked off their Alchemy tour in Long Beach, CA with what they say was “biggest single stage bass event ever done in the U.S.,” they released their latest single with Kompany entitled, “Broken.”

While the LA-based duo’s discography is as diverse as the city they call home, with the help of Kompany, SLANDER found their dark side on “Broken.” This track nothing but heavy all the way through. Even Fknsyd’s mellifluous vocals can’t restrain the sheer grit of the drums, and with her voice floating on top it almost feels like the soundtrack to a war between two robotic alien races.

SLANDER and NGHTMRE have been bringing fans good vibrations for years through a track of that title and their Gud Vibrations event series. As a continuation of the brand, the producers have now linked up to officially launch a Gud Vibrations record label.

Production trio WAVEDASH is the first group to release a track on the label, with new single “Deathwish.” The track features fknsyd, and as the label’s debut song, it demonstrates that hard-hitting festival-ready tracks could be a theme for the label’s output.

WAVEDASH have collaborated with both NGHTMRE and SLANDER in the past, having teamed up with the producers on some of their heaviest releases. Both SLANDER and NGHTMRE have been experimental with their releases, spanning from rap productions to pop tracks. This debut release on Gud Vibrations displays the producers’ continued commitment to the dubstep and bass communities that helped bring the artists into notoriety within the electronic music community in the first place.

Dexter’s Beat Laboratory Vol. 39

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.


Just a month after the release of “Satisfied” on his Science EP, Robotaki has tapped the talents of Machinedrum for a dynamic remix. “When my team and I were thinking of artists to hit up for remixes, we wanted to have a collection of remixes that would truly change the way the original tracks felt and sounded,” Robotaki says of the remix. “Travis’ creative, eclectic and hard-hitting take on ‘Satisfied’ is everything I could’ve hoped for.”


It makes my heart happy that people are still remixing Oliver Heldens and Becky Hill‘s beloved “Gecko (Overdrive).” It’s been nearly five years since its release, and it remains one of my favorites. The song been reworked into a drum & bass masterpiece (thank you, Matrix & Futurebound), spun into a progressive gem (thank you, Lost Kings), and now has been funk-ified into nu disco by Flamingos. With a laid-back, synth-filled vibe, Flamingos revamp this classic with a retro feel.


With each new Rocket League collaborative album, Monstercat continues to impress. Volume three features the latest from Bad Computer: a tantalizing house track with vocals from Skyelle. “Silhouette” marks the producer’s third release with the Canadian label. With captivating instrumentals and beautifully emotive vocals from Skyelle, this one is an alluring addition to Bad Computer’s arsenal of well-crafted tunes.


Bass music plunges to the depths of hell in WAVEDASH and QUEST‘s new track, “Devil Music.” Sprinkled with eerie vocals from fknsyd, this creepy collaboration is crammed with aggressive bass and compelling sound design.  The in-your-face atmosphere of “Devil Music” is invigorating and menacing, making it a breath of fresh air in the saturated bass music market.


There are few things I love more than a drum & bass song that’s equal parts passion-packed and energetic. Flite and Boxplot’s latest, “Sunroad,” is part of Liquicity‘s Galaxy of Dreams 3 compilation, which came out at the end of April. It’s a clear standout on the LP, bursting with life and gorgeous melodies.
