Snails is a Montreal-based producer and DJ who pushes a forward-thinking brand of dance music combining trap rhythms, dirty bass lines and off-kilter sound design. His first tracks appeared online in 2012 on Kannibalen Records. Since then he has amassed a burgeoning fanbase of snail-heads and bass-lovers. Recent releases like "Dirty Raxxx", "RBBR" and "SLUGZ" blend hypnotic melodies, huge drops and mind-bending sample manipulation into a tight, dance-floor friendly package. Snails' latest track "Wild", co-produced with Antiserum and released on Skrillex's Owsla Records, was one of the standout tracks at the 2014 edition of Ultra Music Festival. Having recently signed with Circle Talent, Snails looks primed to bring his unique take on dance music to the mainstream.
In an ever-evolving universe, the art of maintaining complete and total fluidity is the most
necessary key for survival. Renowned for his metamorphic capabilities and expertly crafted
sonic adventures, Liquid Stranger has mastered his ability to slip in and out of genres all while
honing his own personal style.
Within a scene that is constantly changing, few have risen through the trenches and have stirred the bass community in 2017 as much as Bay Area native Danny Howland, better known as SVDDEN DEATH. Taking inspirations from Noisia,16BIT, Skrillex, and other legends in the dubstep community - SVDDEN DEATH has formulated a hybrid of textured rhythms and sub-wrecking basslines to create his own maniacal sound. With the release of his first EP through the well-known Never Say Die: Black Label as well as singles released via Buygore Record's newest imprint Fresh Blood - SVDDEN DEATH has made his mark in the bass scene and will be one to watch.
Las Vegas born and raised producer Shaun Bacus better know as HEKLER, came out of nowhere with his intense eerie take on bass music in early 017. Gaining support from some of the biggest names in the industry including: The Chainsmokers, What So Not, EKALI, NGHTMRE, Whipped Cream, Josh Pan, Adventure Club, and many more. Shaun has been able to progress at an alarming rate taking the industry by surprise. When listening to his tunes, you are left with a puzzled look on your face, wonder...HOW? HEKLER is no stranger to being unique and creating something that you've definitely never heard before. Shaun had started his musical journey at the early age of 13 years old. He was no stranger to music. He grew up listening to a diverse selection of music, playing the trombone, drums and piano. Early 2010 is when he was first introduced to electronic music via UKF. Listening to legends including Noisia, Flux Pavilion, Nero, Skrillex, DJ Fresh and many more, he grew a love for something that wasn't necessarily considered "cool" to listen to at the time. From that point on, he started messing around in FL Studio trying to replicate the tunes he loved so much. Unfortunately, they were a tad bit too complex so Shaun took the hip hop route and began producing beats, learning the ropes of music production. Early 2015, he finally took the leap of faith into the "electronic" elements of producing, learning sound design which crafted his style into what you now hear in his tunes. Finally releasing music in early 2017, HEKLER has created a sound that is truly his. He has shown no signs of stopping and only continues to keep things fresh and unique with every single release.
