Dubstep and Metal? New from SLANDER & Sullivan King “Welcome to the Fire”

Just like when we kick off any December we are eagerly excited about something new and exciting. However, we definitely didn’t expect this. This week we have the latest from SLANDER, who just happened to pair up with Los Angeles-based multi-instrumentalist Sullivan King for their unique new track “Welcome to the Fire”. While the duo is just now making waves in the industry, the duo has been absolutely busy throughout 2017. While they have found initial success in original productions such as “Superhuman” and “We Out”, they have kept themselves busy on their Superhuman tour.

You know how we teased that this track is unique? We didn’t expect dubstep and metal to be fused together since fans and advocates of both metal and electronic don’t typically see eye to eye when it comes to music quality. “Welcome to the Fire” is a heavy metal banger with plenty of t-bass driven dubstep sprinkled all throughout. This track is a perfect song to just release some pent-up emotions upon the world.  We believe it is fair to say that this track is definitely not for the faint of heart.

Ready to SLANDER? New Remix of Post Malone’s “I Fall Apart”

While their name may mean to spread lies and defame someone or an ideal, we are definitely not doing that here. Rounding out this weekend we bring you the latest from SLANDER with their remix of Post Malone’s “I Fall Apart”. While the initial track is on its way to being a mad slasher, this remix is an example of the bass work that we can come to expect from SLANDER. While the duo is just now making waves in the industry, the duo has been absolutely busy throughout 2017. While they have found initial success in original productions such as “Superhuman” and “We Out”, they have kept themselves busy on their Superhuman tour.

Now it is hard to follow up and remix “I Fall Apart” successfully without butchering it completely. Unlike a number of remixes we have heard, SLANDER doesn’t necessarily toy with the beautiful vocals. Instead, they stay within their strengths and focus on bass and synth work. Now a bass-heavy banger with metallic synths that identify this remix as a SLANDER remix, “I Fall Apart” has been successfully remade. Well done SLANDER. (Link Deleted)

11/17 – Intrigue Nightclub – Las Vegas, NV
11/18 – New Daisy Theatre – Memphis, TN
11/22 – Foundation – Seattle, WA

Bass Head Buku is Back With “Control”, Now With More Lasers!

About time, we have been waiting for our official alien invasion producer to come back with some new music. In this midweek bump, we have Buku’s latest “let’s take out the aliens” track “Control”. Buku has been slowly becoming acquainted with the modern audience, having received praise from legendary producer Bassnectar and moderate success from previous releases. This has also allowed him to travel all around the world, with just coming off an Australian tour and moving along to a North American tour through July. One of his more recent tracks, “Ready 4”, even made it onto the soundtrack of Madden ’18! Hopefully, the Madden curse won’t affect Buku that much.

Just like the rest of Buku’s work, “Control” puts us on an alien planet and prepares us to do battle with a hostile alien race. With synths that are almost pure machine-like and effects inspired by lasers straight out of science fiction, it won’t be surprising to see “Control” on plenty of gamers’ playlists. Just wait for that sinister bassline to take you hold and be whisked onto a wild adventure.  While we loosely believe that our words will sway you, perhaps Buku’s will instead.

“Oddly enough, the track wasn’t inspired by anything particularly malevolent. “I actually was doing yard work one day, and the idea for the main drop popped into my head,” he said. “I ran inside and wrote down a few notes, and it was the first time I’ve ever adhered 100% to the pre-production plan.” – Buku
