In the realm of Electronic music, there exists a dynamic duo that has captivated hearts, set stages ablaze, and forged unbreakable bonds with their fans – SLANDER. Hailing from the United States, Derek Andersen and Scott Land have established themselves as a magnetic force in the Electronic Dance Music (EDM) scene.

The Evolution of SLANDER
SLANDER’s journey began with a chart-topping remix and the release of their original track “Love Again,” a masterpiece in the subgenre known as “Heaven Trap.” Featuring the mesmerizing vocals of WAVZ, this track has garnered over 10 million listens and found a home under Diplo’s esteemed Mad Decent imprint. But this was just the beginning.
Since then, SLANDER’s musical odyssey has taken them to iconic stages worldwide, including EDC Las Vegas’s Kinetic Field, Lollapalooza, Tomorrowland, Bonnaroo, Paradiso, Electric Zoo, Ultra Music Festival, and many more. Their electrifying performances have solidified their status as festival mainstays, leaving audiences in awe with their unforgettable sets.
More Than Musicians: Label Heads
Beyond their stellar productions and chart-topping hits, SLANDER has ventured into the realm of record labels. The dynamic duo, based in Los Angeles, transformed their beloved “Gud Vibrations” brand into an official record label, in partnership with their close friend NGHTMRE. This move signifies that SLANDER’s commitment to spreading “GUD VIBES” is only gaining momentum.
The GV brand, rooted in their Mad Decent-released single “Gud Vibrations,” has seen exponential growth, attracting a global audience. They achieved back-to-back sellout nights headlining the prestigious Hollywood Palladium, followed by selling out the NOS Event Center with a staggering 10,000 fans. Simultaneously, they took the dance music scene by storm with their groundbreaking stage production, aptly named “THE ATOM.” In 2017 and 2018, they brought “THE ATOM” to sold-out shows at the iconic Red Rocks Amphitheatre and curated their stage at Nocturnal Wonderland.
