Slander proposes Melodic Bass Festival, calls for artist nominations

California-based duo SLANDER has made waves in the last few years for their heavy and emotional take in bass music. Pioneering the “heaven trap” subgenre, they’ve reclaimed their forward-thinking energy in an announcement earlier this week on Twitter. SLANDER invited ideas and artist nominations for their outer space-themed melodic bass festival.

We couldn’t help but wonder what artist suggestions Twitter would generate. Sullivan King volunteered himself with a 50 minute melodic drop of Wake Up and a 10 minute solo on guitar. Kingpins of melodic bass peppered the replies like MitiS, Seven Lions, Adventure Club, and William Black. Porter Robinson and Illenium, unsurprisingly, stood out as two of the most poplar suggestions. Rezz and INZO similarly drew attention for their characteristic outer-worldly sounds aptly fitting the space theme.

Since the winning festival name suggestions earns free passes for life, there were several creative ideas. Notable contributions include “Woolo world” courtesy of Wooli, and “Crychella,” courtesy of Tynan. Blanke also offered “Big cri bonk,’ which fits SLANDER’s principle of knowing their song is ready for release when it makes them cry.

Although the festival remains in the hypothetical, it’s fun to imagine what it could look like in fruition. The last decade has seen a saturation of melodic bass, which leaves artists room to explore routes within the subgenre. Especially considering the surplus of time to create during the pandemic, it wouldn’t be surprising to hear an even wider spread of artists joining in. Although we may not have a festival in the traditional sense this year, SLANDER hosting a Melodic Bass festival is on the top of the list to watch for.
