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 and was also championed by Diplo's Mad Decent imprint.
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, Ilesoniq, 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.
