Snails Shells Out A New Remix Album

The Vomitsquad is excited to hear even more bass-heavy music from their favorite DJ/producer, Snails. Just when we thought The Shell album couldn’t get any better, it just did. Snails recently dropped a new remix albumin Sept. 14th, giving a whole new spin to The Shell, making each song stand out on its own incredible way.

For The Shell: Remixes album, Snails invited some of the best bass/dubstep producers in the scene, and his fellow artists such as Kill The Noise, Virtual Riot, Funtcase, Space Jesus, Svdden Death and many others, to create their own spin on his debut LP. All fo them delivered their own interpretations of Snails’ original tracks off of the album, which originally released on Oct. 20th, 2017.

The entire 12-track album went cohesively together to give the listener a great experience, and now the remix album, which features 10 remixes, just turned it way up. Other producers such as Soltan, Kompany & Ivory, UBUR, Megalodon and Mastadon were invited by Snails to help create the large compilation of non-stop energy. These producers have been making a big name for themselves, pushing the boundaries of bass music with every single release.

The Canadian DJ has managed to rise above the pack with an unmistakable sound called “Vomitstep,” working tirelessly to provide his fans with dirty bass lines, trap rhythms and off-kilter sounds. He didn’t disappoint bass lovers by packing his album with shrill, abrasive wobbles, skittering percussion and explosive bass. The Shell: Remixes album is definitely a project that will have you headbanging from beginning to the end.

 

Funtcase Puts a Grimy Spin on Snails’ ‘Forever’

Everyone’s favorite Vomitstep producer, Snails, is about to drop a remixed version of his debut album “The Shell” – and he’s given us a taste of the utter destruction to come with the release of Funtcase‘s remix of “Forever.” Funtcase rises to the challenge by incorporating a fresh dose of grimy, mechanical synths and face-melting basslines, which gives the producer’s legion of headbanging fans yet another reason to go absolutely wild during his notorious live sets.

I loved writing this remix, the original I was playing for absolutely AGES before release, so I was happy when Snails said I could remix it…hope you enjoy,” stated Funtcase as he unleashes this monster remix to the public.

The “Forever” remix is out on Snails‘s Slugz Music and follows up the label’s much-anticipated first release “Shake the Ground” with Kill the Noise and Sullivan King & Jonah Kay last month.

For his part, Snails has been relatively close-lipped about who else will be featured on the remix album or its exact date of release, but rest assured it will be filled with the gut-wrenching bass and metal sound that has become an underground cult favorite. As for the first remix release, Snails gives it the Vomitstep stamp of approval.

Funtcase‘s remix of ‘Forever‘ from my album ‘The Shell‘ is one of the biggest tracks in my set right now and seriously goes off every time,” he says. “I knew as soon as I sent him the stems, he would destroy it. I’ve been such a fan of his for a long time now and so stoked he put his own spin on this one and could be a part of the remix album.”

For the chance to hear the “Forever” remix in the flesh, head to Snails‘s Sluggtopia showcase at the Red Rocks Amphitheatre on October 5th, where Funtcase will play a special b2b set with Cookie Monsta. Rest assured, this is one you don’t want to miss!

Twerl & Max Styler Remix Diplo’s “Color Blind” feat. Lil Xan

Max Styler has been on an extraordinary success route and has climbed higher than high this past year. Believe it or not, Max along with Australia-based Twerl have released together yet again, this time an official remix for Diplo & Lil Xan‘s “Color Blind” on Mad Decent/Columbia Records. The talented artists have taken the bass line and transformed it into a funky summer beat. Lil Xan‘s vocals have been preserved with unique and vibrant key sounds that highlight the reworks of Max and Twerl. The San Luis Obispo native could not hide his excitement when he talked about this release: “I was stoked to work on this track with Twerl as we’ve had a great workflow this year with our past two releases. I’m super happy it came out as an official Diplo remix! Hope you like it as much as we do” – says Max. The track was simply frosted with a little twist of Max and Twerl‘s creative masterworks, which saved the tracks originality. In the past, they both have worked together on a single called “Wasted Time” released on Elysian Records this March. As can be heard, their work and time spent together has amazing outcomes.

In just a few years, Max Styler has graduated from musical whiz kid to accomplished and seasoned producer. Since being signed on Dim Mak when he was only 18 years old, Styler‘s unique sound and impeccable production skills have earned him both commercial appeal and underground clout. His track “Roller Coaster” rose to number three on the Beatport charts during its first week, followed by the epic “Knock Me Down” with MAKJ and his three track “Gold” and “Deep Dream” remix package. Last year, he experimented with whimsical melodies and vocals on “Secrets” featuring CXLOE and “Heroes” with Nevve, before putting out the dancefloor-friendly “All Your Love” as his first track of 2018. If one thing is for sure, Max Styler is always evolving. Just two weeks ago he released his collaborative single with KRANE – “Changes“, and then (only 3 days later) teamed up with Steve AokiDeorro, and MAKJ for “Shakalaka” on Ultra Records. We can’t wait to be along for the ride.

SLANDER Flips Above & Beyond’s “Always”

Riddim” and “heaven” may not be synonymous, but they go together like never before on SLANDER‘s new remix of Above & Beyond‘s “Always.”

SLANDER amps up the original’s delicate, downtempo instrumentals with a percussive buildup and a melodic, dubby bassline – and the result is both dreamy and dance-worthy. The “Always” remix preserves the beauty of Above & Beyond‘s classic track featuring vocals by Zoë Johnston while giving it a fresh spin that is reminiscent of the vocal, ethereal dubstep of the earlier 2000’s.

This is the second track in which SLANDER has deviated to a melodic sound, following their recent release “Slow Motion” with Bret James. “Always” is SLANDER‘s premiere release on Anjunabeats, and we hope it won’t be their last.

SLANDER first made waves in the scene when they debuted their remix of Showtek‘s “We Like to Party” in 2014, coining their unique sound. However, SLANDER has proven they are capable of so much more than remixes and a singular genre.

The duo made waves with their original productions and an evolved sound, as recently evidenced on “Welcome To The Fire” with Sullivan King, “I Can’t Escape” with SAYMYNAME featuring Feli Ferraro and “Happy Now.” Their ability to produce both bass-heavy headbangers and emotionally stirring melodies distinguishes them as talented, multifaceted producers, not to mention their charismatic stage presence.

Together with NGHTMRESLANDER has made their “Gud Vibrations” event concept into a bonafide lifestyle. In 2018 they sold out their Miami Music Week’s Gud Vibrations Boat Party in less than 3 minutes, and continue to branch out and grow their brand.

NICKY ROMERO DELIVERS REMIX FOR AFROJACK AND JEWELZ & SPARKS’ LATEST SINGLE, ‘ONE MORE DAY’

Emerging just in time to turn this year’s flurry of next-level festivals into even more of a scene-defining escapade, Nicky Romero unleashes his remix treatment onto the new single of Afrojack and German duo Jewelz & Sparks. Premiered by the Wall Recordings head honcho himself (Afrojack) at EDC Las Vegas and played as the final track of his live set at The Flying Dutch last weekend, Nicky Romero’s remix adds a fresh scent of magic to their latest offering, ‘One More Day.’

Right in time to blow this summer’s festivals off their hinges, Nicky Romero provides dance music lovers with a wonderful and above all blistering rendition. Turning ‘One More Day’ into a super-addictive Progressive House masterpiece, the Dutchman proves again why he’s widely considered one of dance music’s top acts.

The main man behind Protocol Recordings and a mainstay in DJ Mag’s annual Top 100 DJs poll, Nicky Romero is one of the artists who’ve put dance music on the map across the world. Judging by the massive success of singles such as ‘Sober’ (over 32 million streams on Spotify), ‘Iron’, ‘Legacy’ (both than 20 million streams on Spotify) and – of course – ‘I Could Be The One’ (with Avicii – close to 200 million streams on Spotify), the young Dutchman has mastered the art of creating globally acclaimed super hits. His remix of Afrojack and Jewelz & Sparks’ ‘One More Day’ fits the bill for the full 100% in that regard.

He has established himself as an artist unbound to genre in the electronic arena and his remix of “Risk It All” proves just that.

Norway’s Lido and Chicago’s YehMe2 each offer their own unique rework of the groundbreaking cross-cultural collaboration.

Tropix & Oxilo Heat Up Summer with Out of Love Remix

In February of this year, Two Friends and Cosmos & Creator released “Out of Love” on Spinnin’ Records. A saxophone serenade and a chorus of “Ohs” made it an instant hit and spawned numerous remixes. Cosmos & Creator hail from Toluca Lake, a neighborhood in Los Angeles, and Two Friends (duo Matt Halper + Eli Sones) also call Los Angeles home.
