One of the most exciting breaths of fresh of air in the bass world is without a doubt Montreal's own SNAILS. The TSIS regular has premiered with us since his Bubble Gun VIP, and has rose to the forefront of bass music thanks to massive singles like "Pump This", "Wild", his "Crazy" bootleg with Brillz, or even his recent collaboration alongside Skrillex an Diplo with "Holla Out" on the Jack U album. On top of all this, last summer he changed the game and put out the first ever all UNRELEASED music mix, the Snailed It! Mix, still receives heavy plays to this day.
Today SNAILS follows up the first Snailed It! Mix with Volume 2 of the series, "Welcome To SLUGZ CITY". In similar fashion the mix is filled to the brim with unreleased songs, adding up to a full EP of unreleased SNAILS material alongside new tunes from some of the biggest names in bass music. Following in the same fashion as the first mix, the track names and artists will be revealed one by one.
SNAILS has also revealed the exciting details on his first ever headline tour fittingly called the "SNAILIN USA TOUR" check out the full list of dates below.
Los Angeles rapper Kid Ink continues to make a name for himself and today his single "Be Real" ft. Dej Loaf has received the remix it was calling for. Sydney based producer Wax Motif who we heard on "Since I Left You" and TSIS regular, LA artists Gladiator, have joined forces stepping out of their usual territory and putting a future house remix on the song. The track has been given an upbeat dance facelift with heavy hitting percussion and a thumping bassline that will smash clubs and fests all year long. While experimenting with the new style, the artists manage to still convey their signature ghetto bass styles. Listen to the premiere below and look out for your own copy on Beatport later this month. Enjoy!
Kid Cudi doesn't exactly follow the typical method of doing things and tends to release music randomly at unexepcted times, and one of those times is right now. He just shared a brand new song titled "Love" which was recorded last year yet never released. The song that is produced by Cudi go-to Dot Da Genius which actually samples Ratatat and their song "Sunblocks", paves way for Cudi to deliver some silky smooth verses. What's crazy is that Ratatat and Cudi have been friends since previous work on Pursuit Of Happiness and have even personally approved this track. Listen below and start getting excited for his forthcoming album, Man on the Moon III. Enjoy!
Big Sean, Drake and Kanye West all link up for the video for “Blessings” which is taken from Sean’s recent studio album Dark Sky Paradise. We get a very minimalistic video done in all black and white with all three rappers delivering their verses with not an ounce of fucking around, fitting with the serious tone of the track. Watch the powerful video below. Enjoy!
Long time TSIS favorite and recent CO to LA transplant Paper Diamond has been building excitement around his upcoming Raindrops EP; and today we get the premiere of the song "Take Me Away". PD steps into new territory bringing in some elements of future bass with his beat centric brand of trap for a seamless combination. Listen to the premiere of the song below and grab a free download, and look out for the rest of the EP dropping this Friday. Enjoy!

Mad Decent continues to position itself as one of the most forward thinking tastemaker labels in the electronic world and today we are happy to premiere the latest release from Netherland based artist Boaz Van De Beatz. The producer has gained steam lately, being played out by everyone from Diplo, Skrillex, Major Lazer and more. Today we hear one of the hottest tracks from his EP Horse Force titled "Guappa" which features both Riff Raff and Mr. Polska. The track is focused around verses from Riff and Mr. Poska's over an out-of-control, unique sounding trap foundation.

After teasing "All Day", the newest Kanye West track that was debuted at the Brit Awards live last week has been leaked in full quality. This song is the second off his forthcoming still very mysterious new studio album So Help Me God, which we now have the artwork for, above. This song featuring some nicely placed vocal features from Allan Kingdom, Theophilus London and even some whistling from Paul McCartney (Which apparently warrants getting a feature when you are that big). Not every Kanye West song is one you can replay endlessly, but this is definitely of them. Listen to the newly leaked full version below, enjoy!
Last fall Diplo and his Mad Decent crew set out to the seas for their first ever cruise ship, the fittingly titled Mad Decent Boat Party. The 4 day long event went down in history as some of the most ratchet, out of control, and equally epic days for all those who had ever attended, including some of our team. Well the Norwegian Pearl cruiselines have somehow let Diplo and his crew take the boat over once more.
The 2015 edition of the Mad Decent Boat Party will be departing from Miami on November 11th and the ship will set course to the brand new private beach of Cozumel, Mexico and will return on November 15th.
The lineup this year is also somehow even better featuring headliners Jack Ü, Diplo, Skrillex, Dillon Francis, Flosstradamus, ILoveMakkonen, Major Lazer, Thomas Jack, A-Trak, G-Eazy and many more others including Alison Wonderland, Ape Drums, Borgore, Brazzabelle, Brillz, Brunch Bounce, Chris Lorenzo, Dirty South Joe, Eli & Fur, ETC!ETC!, Gent & Jawns, Giraffage, Grandtheft, Hayden James, HoodboiJauz, Jubilee, Keys N Krates, Lunice, Martin Solveig, Mija, MØ, Nadastrom, Oliver Heldens, Party Favor, Paul Devro, Sam Feldt, Shash'U, Skrillex, Smalltown DJS, Snakehips, TJR, Torro Torro, Troyboi, TWRK, and more!

It's going to be selling out far in advanced this year, so if you can make it work, do whatever you can to make it out for this year. Pre-book your cabins now while they are still available. We hope to see you all out on the boat this year!]]>
Today we are happy to present a new act going by Karma Fields who reached out to us about a new song "Build The Cities" featuring Kerli on the vocals. Following in the same path as Zhu and other mysterious acts, little is known about Karma Fields other than they've created this fresh dance song that borders the deeper side of electro and house with a very melodic twist. "Build The Cities" will take you on a rollercoaster ride that you won't want to stop. We have word the track first appeared in an alleged hacking of the Monstercat live stream, the same record label that has released the track. You can stream the song below and grab a copy on iTunes via Monstercat. Enjoy
As Action Bronson continues to approach the March 24th release of his highly antipated debut studio album Mr. Wonderful, we get our hands on one of the most buzzed cuts on the release. "Baby Blue" is a collaboration with Chance the Rapper and is produced by UK legend Mark Ronson. The chemistry of both rappers is off the charts over Ronson's unbeatble prodcution. Enjoy!
Diplo's dancehall group Major Lazer has been riding the success of their huge Free The Universe album released last year; a year that saw them headlining countless festivals and Mad Decent Block Parties across the globe. Well they have a new record coming out this year and today they've linked up with DJ Snake for what could be one of the biggest dance anthems of 2015. "Lean On" is both reggae, trap, pop and more for a unique and instant hit. From the organic reggae drums to the insanely catchy melody the track is tied together by MØ's perfect vocals. Listen to the full version below and pick up your copy and be prepared to hear this one a lot this year. Enjoy!
