Whether it be their electric performances, heartfelt production or lasting friendship, dance fans around the world are drawn to the magnetic duo SLANDER.
Through their meticulous blend of emotional lyricism and savage drops, Derek and Scott have built a passionate family of fans along their evolution to the status of festival legends. Their dedication to their craft and the development of their own unique sound has earned them support from the likes of Skrillex, DJ Snake, RL Grime, Diplo, Bassnectar, Porter Robinson and more.
Amongst dozens of chart-topping remixes, their original Heaven Trap hit “Love Again” featuring vocalist WAVZ has been listened to over 10 million times while being championed by Diplo’s Mad Decent imprint. But, that was just the beginning of their journey.
Since then, SLANDER has continued to perform all over the globe on renowned stages such as EDC Las Vegas’s Kinetic Field, Lollapalooza, Tomorrowland, Bonnaroo, Paradiso, Electric Zoo, Ultra Music Festival, and many more.
Their most recent string of hits included collaborations with Kayzo, SAYMYNAME and Sullivan King – artists they helped mentor and build.
Their Gud Vibrations brand, which got its name from their shared Mad Decent single with best friend NGHTMRE, has seen exponential growth. Two sold-out Palladium shows were quickly followed by a sold-out 34 city bus tour across North America. In 2017, they held their yearly Miami Music Week Gud Vibrations event, as well as hosted the first festival version of GV at the NOS Events Center, attracting over 10,000 fans to that show alone. 2018 will see the continued rise of Gud Vibrations, as they continue with festival style pop-up shows, and a first-time appearance of Gud Vibrations at Red Rocks Amphitheatre.
