Snails Announces The Launch Of His Brand New Label "Slugz Music"

Snails has had one wild rise to prominence over the past 6+ years. Having released a debut album, started his own Red Rocks festival, dropped an epic 22-minute tour documentary and even had one of his tracks appear in an M. Night Shyamalan movie all in the past two years alone, it’s quite apparent the Canadian powerhouse has been doing the most. Today, the Vomitstep pioneer has reached yet another milestone in his career with the announcement of his brand new label, Slugz Music.

"I want to put a story with every single release so it connects on a deeper level with listeners and that's the most important thing for me. I want to build with artists and help their music be heard by as many people as possible, there is so much unheard talent out there." - Snails (via Billboard)

Having been a part of the OWSLA, Dim Mak and Monstercat families over the years, it seems that Slugz Music will be a unique familial entity in itself. Snails stated that in an interview with Billboard that having complete control over not only his releases, but “also being able to have a vision attached to my music” is incredibly important. Seeing as the new label will take influence from Snails’ musical upbringing of old school metal, punk and rock, and that he already has merch and a remix album for his debut album, The Shell in the works, we can't wait to see how it’ll all come together. Make sure to keep an eye on Slugz Music here. Enjoy!

Dillon Francis Trolls DJ Snake With Fake Website & Drops New Track “Look At That Butt”

We were all taken by surprise yesterday (June 19) when a cryptic message and countdown appeared on djsnake.com. Having launched his new label Premiere Classe back in March and announced his new album was on the way only last month, this supposedly “special announcement” from the Parisian DJ had the potential to be something huge. And now that the countdown has finished...we’ve all been trolled yet again by Dillon Francis.

It seems that this latest prank from the LA-based artist was an elaborate ruse to promote the release of his brand new track “Look At That Butt” (ft. Jarina De Marco). As Francis explains it, while “Look At That Butt” comes as part of the streak of releases leading up to his forthcoming album, this latest website scheme has apparently been three years in the making after DJ Snake flashed Francis’ phone number to a crowd of thousands at Ultra Music Festival in 2015. Although some DJ Snake fans might feel let down by the fake announcement, we did get a new, heavy moombahton banger out of it that’s sure to creep its way onto mainstages everywhere. Check out “Look At That Butt” (ft. Jarina De Marco) as well as Dillon Francis’ explanation of how the prank came to fruition below and enjoy!

ODESZA Shares Incredible Behind The Scenes Video Detailing The Making Of “Higher Ground” Ft. Naomi Wild

ODESZA’s 2017 album A Moment Apart was something truly special. Having been nominated for a Grammy and easily taking #1 on our top electronic albums list of last year, we continue to be impressed by absolutely everything ODESZA puts out. Now, in continuing the streak of videos in which Harrison and Clay explain the inspiration behind the album, today the duo has shared a new behind-the-scenes look at their track “Higher Ground” alongside the talented Naomi Wild.

As we’ve seen in the past with the making of “Meridian” and “Across The Room”, there’s a special story behind every track off A Moment Apart. In the case of “Higher Ground”, the duo explain their need to escape the pressures surrounding the album, inevitably leading them to receive an email from Naomi Wild with a voice note that would go on to become the lead vocals on the track, and was the backbone they built the production around. Check out the full inside look at “Higher Ground” below and make sure to enter for a chance to win VIP tickets to ODESZA’s Red Rocks takeover this weekend (June 15 & 16). Enjoy!
