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.

Slander & Bret James Team Up For Feel-Good “Slow Motion”

While there’s no doubt that the duo behind SLANDER knows how to throw down some heavy drops, their newest release “Slow Motion“, co-produced with Bret James, explores deeper into their original melodic style. With layers of rolling, molten basslines and ethereal vocals, “Slow Motion” is a track that transports the listener into an entirely new world.

 

SLANDER expertly dissipates the pressures of daily life with velvety melodies and lyrics that are sensual, wistful and blissful all at once. “Slow Motion” expertly demonstrates their ability to continuously evolve their sound while staying true to their dynamic and unique style that has earned them a devout following of listeners. SLANDER and Bret just played “Slow Motion” to a packed crowd at EDC Las Vegas‘s kineticFIELD main stage. The duo will be making appearances for live sets later this summer, so make sure to catch them in a city near you!

Bret James, born and raised in LA, has years of experience as an artist as well as other areas of entertainment. He has been a working musician, actor and performer since 5 years old, but over the past few years, he has begun to shift his focus to solely music creating a cohesive sound with infectious energy when he performs with his live band, captivating crowds and invoking raw and relatable emotions. Notably, Bret is a part of “The13th Grade” collective, which includes stars NGHTMREJ-LouisSLANDERZacari, and more. Through his experience in this collective, he has been able to develop amazing relationships with striving talent who will support him.
