Seven Lions teams up with SLANDER for their highly anticipated collaboration “First Time,” which melds heavy bass and euphoric melodies for a masterful representation of both artists’ sounds. Also featuring producer Dabin and artist Dylan Matthew, “First Time” delivers blissful melodies, dreamy basslines and colorful emotions, making for a cathartic listening journey. The record comes at a very exciting moment for both artists; Seven Lions recently launched his massive “The Journey 2” tour, while SLANDER kicked off their “The Headbangers Ball” tour and are experiencing huge success with their Gud Vibrations brand. The collaboration is out now on Seven Lions‘s imprint Ophelia Records.
SLANDER are known for their massive collaboration with NGHTMRE dubbed “Gud Vibrations” – a name that the producers have also used for their recently launched co-owned record label. The LA-based duo has recently released two notable tracks with vastly different sounds: “Kneel Before Me” with Crankdat featuring heavy metal band Asking Alexandria and “You Don’t Even Know Me” with RIOT. SLANDER is in the midst of headlining their “The Headbangers Ball” North American tour, hitting major cities like Las Vegas, Washington D.C., Miami, Houston, and Chicago and taking over festivals like Ultra Mexico and Holy Ship 12.0.

Seven Lions recently released his four-track “Start Again” EP featuring vocals by Fiora and a collaboration with Blastoyz, which was widely regarded as one of his most emotionally intensive and poignant works yet. Seven Lions has become known for his combination of meaningful lyrics, lush soundscapes and dance floor-friendly basslines, and both the “Start Again” EP and “First Time” are prime exhibits of his unique sound. Seven Lions fans have more to look forward to within the rest of this year while he is continuing “The Journey 2” with support from Jason Ross, Au5, and MitiS. Tickets for “The Journey 2” are available now and can be purchased here.

The Toronto native also just released a new single called “Altitude” with Fytch. Dabin has been working to incorporate live instruments into his shows and has performed live alongside Illenium and Said The Sky.
