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.

HOLY SHIP! shares huge lineup for upcoming landlocked edition, HOLY SHIP! WRECKED

HOLY SHIP! shares huge lineup for upcoming landlocked edition, HOLY SHIP! WRECKEDRukes III

While HOLY SHIP! won’t be setting sail in 2020, it’ll sure still be getting down. The revered HARD Events maritime festival will anchor itself in the Dominican Republic’s Punta Cana next year, January 22-26 with a whole new name: HOLY SHIP! WRECKED.

Casting a wide and prominent net, HOLY SHIP! WRECKED has secured Diplo, Lane 8, Claude VonStroke, and Madeon to top its astounding 2020 roster, while Chris Lake, NGHTMRE & Slander, and Jai Wolf comprise what one could hardly call an undercard. Distinguished names from across the house and bass-abundant spectrum speckle the robust roster, from 12th Planet to TOKiMONSTA, Whethan to What So Not, the agenda seems to extend something irrefutable for every electronic taste preference. Up-and-coming contenders like Dom Dolla, Sonny Fodera, and ODESZA-championed MEMBA offer the lineup a fresh-faced appeal as well.

Not only is the lineup set to be one of the most in-depth throughout the HOLY SHIP! timeline, but the shift in format will offer #Shipfam an event that is both excitingly new and refreshingly familiar. Cloud 9 Adventures,the lead company behind the ship experience, has been producing events in concert with the Punta Cana resort for many years already and will bring that expertise to HOLY SHIP! WRECKED .

Just as on HOLY SHIP!, the resort will only be open to attendees throughout the festival. Seasoned Shipfam will still receive their robes as well as their OG party as fans and artists live together for a weekend in paradise:

We are shipfam for life, so we couldn’t miss out on this! – Gorgon City

Time to start the search for buried treasure. We be shipwrecked this year me maties! – Claude VonStroke  

When it comes time for the artists to perform, there will be nine different areas for music spread throughout the resort. With the increased amount of space, the overall production will be at a much higher level and each area will maintain a specific sonic identity. From daily pool parties to a 1,000 person-capacity club to a sunrise set on the beach, artists will be spinning multiple sets in a variety of environments to satisfy the astute tastes of Shipfam.

Plus, the extensive amenities provided both on-site and in the immediate area will allow for a much broader range of artist involved activities which will be announced soon.

Attendees of HOLY SHIP! WRECKED will have 24-hour access to the resort’s private beach. Every room includes its own balcony, hot tub, free Wi-Fi, and is roughly three times the size of rooms on the boat. There are nine restaurants around the resort offering everything from sushi to pizza, and just like on ship, food and drinks (including alcohol) are all-inclusive.

In terms of recreation outside of music, there is mini-golf, a lazy river, a waterslide, and much more on property. For an extra charge, attendees can take their experience to the next level with a full 18-hole golf course, excursions on dune buggies and ATV’s, a 65,000 square-foot spa, scuba diving, and various other activities that only a world-class island resort can offer.

Pre-sale for HOLY SHIP! WRECKED starts next Monday, July 29, and tickets officially go on sale Wednesday, July 31 at 11 am PT, available here, along with general festival information.

Effin flips Chris Lake’s ‘I Want You’ [Stream]

Effin flips Chris Lake’s ‘I Want You’ [Stream]Effin

Those familiar with LA’s Icon Collective know that its alumni have made serious noise in the world of dance music. Jauz, NGHTMRE, and Slander are just a few of the heavyweights who got their start at Icon. Another more understated notch in their roster is Effin, who recently executed an out-of-the-box remix of the Chris Lake classic, “I Want You.”

Lake is an unequivocal staple in the house music domain, and one of the driving leaders in the genre’s global ascension. But one of the reasons he has found such sweeping success is because his music taps into up-to-the-moment sounds and styles and packages them with more classic, subtle nuance. In his explosive rendition, Effin took those subtleties and put them under his serrated microscope lens.

“I Want You” came out on OWSLA in 2017, and because the Skrillex-headed label features cross-genre categories throughout its prolific catalog, its identity pertains more to an all-encompassing energy from a collective vantage point. Effin harnessed the same energy Lake did for dancefloor cut and morphed it into a heavy-hitting bass tune.

Seven Lions has proven to be a true chameleon when it comes to his production output. The former Anjunabeats darling creates and performs everything from cutting dubstep records to euphoric trance and future bass. This fall he will embark upon a new sonic journey with Dimibo under psy trance alias, Abraxis. Fans in this niche might already recognize Dimibo, who are a Seattle based psy trance duo and a fixture on Seven Lions’ label, Ophelia Records. The project will be debuted at Dreamstate Southern California.

This announcement comes at the heels of the producer’s recent Alchemy tour announcement, which will see him perform alongside NGHTMRE, The Glitch Mob, and SLANDER at over 19 tour stops across the U.S. This in addition to Abraxis is certainly enough to keep the Seven Lions busy. While it’s clear the new project is performance-heavy, the collaborators have yet to confirm whether or not they’ll be putting out joint releases. For those looking to experience Abraxis live, Dreamstate tickets can be purchased here.

SLANDER’s bass and Said the Sky’s melodic sound come together in their newest collab. This pairing has brought us what probably is the most beautiful track of the year so far. With incredibly emotional lyrics from JT Roach and melodic breaks, “Potions” is here to bring out the feels all summer long. This track has been

From the moment SLANDER had Said the Sky join them atop the stage at Insomniac’s Crush Arizona in February to premiere their then-unreleased collaboration, it has arguably remained the number one sought-after ID thus far in 2019. While it certainly did not come without good intentions, the two artists have not been able to get a mere syllable in without a bombardment of comments surrounding the release date of the trio’s melodic creation. That date has officially arrived, however, as SLANDER and Said the Sky cease all warrants for the long-awaited single with the delivery of a complete dosage of “Potions” featuring JT Roach.

SLANDER and Said the Sky are established gurus at generating tear-jerking productions and “Potions” admirably falls in harmony. The track appears with delicate acoustic strings on top of ethereal vocal layers from Roach as the artistic trio proceeds towards a graceful chill-step drop. While fans have grown accustomed to hearing the collaboration in solely live version form, the official version seems to somehow topple any expectations set in the months prior as “Potions” is an obvious frontrunner for one of the year’s strongest releases.

“Potions” is officially available now on Monstercat.
