Slander at Quartyard – Saturday, September 3rd, 2016
Though Derek and Scott have been perfecting their craft since 2010, Slander has entered the dance music scene with the feel of an overnight success story. Veteran DJs and skilled producers, Slander has crafted their own genre dubbed “Heaven Trap” with a devout following.
Despite their rapid rise, they are no stranger to the industry’s top producers, including Skrillex, DJ Snake, Flosstradamus, Diplo, Bassnectar, Porter Robinson, RL Grime, Yellow Claw, Bro Safari, Snails, and Carnage. Their Nuclear Bonds EP was a stand-out release from Dance Music’s top underground label, Mad Decent. After dozens of remixes, their first big vocal hit, a Heaven Trap original entitled “Love Again” featuring vocalist WAVZ, garnered over one million listens on Soundcloud.
With past performances at EDC Las Vegas, Nocturnal Wonderland, TomorrowWorld, Electric Zoo, EDC Orlando, EDC Mexico, Something Wicked, Sun City Music Festival, Contact Music Festival, Sunset Music Festival, Il Soniq, Moonrise, LifeInColor, and Global Dance at the historic Red Rocks Amphitheater primarily on the main stage, Slander has had the opportunity to show that their tracks are festival worthy. They’ve headlined every AAA venue in North America including LIV, Pacha, Create, The Mid, The Hoxton, Ruby Skye, Foundation, Elektricity and Beta. They did this all while holding down a monthly residency at the #1 nightclub in the United States, XS, whose other DJs include Megaclub juggernauts such as Avicii, Deadmau5, David Guetta, and Zedd. Besides the top clubs and festivals in the U.S. scene, they’ve headlined in Paris, Geneva, Milan, Athens, and other European cities, then hopped over the Pacific to hit up legendary Australian clubs such as Pacha, Oh Hello, and HQ. Undeniably the fastest growing act in dance music, they’ve lived up to all the early hype and then some. After spending 2015 playing almost exclusively on main stages at every festival in North America, don’t expect to see them anywhere else for the rest of their career
