Over the last four years, Canadian artist Snails has made massive strides toward cementing hisstatus as one of the leading figures in bass music. In 2017, Snails worked tirelessly on one of his biggestprojects ever, his debut album and first full-production tour, both called “The Shell”. He debuted both athis sold-out Red Rocks concert “Sluggtopia” in September, where attendees were astonished by the innova-tive stage design and new music. Released in October, the eagerly-anticipated album featured collabora-tions with noted producers like NGHTMRE and Big Gigantic, and appearances by all-star vocalists such asWaka Flocka and Collie Buddz. Hailed by Billboard as “a totally outrageous collection of grimy sounds andmosh pit motivation”, it was met with unanimous acclaim by dance music fans and critics alike. The tourwas equally successful, packing out rooms across North America during the non-stop 48 show run.One might think that such a successful kickoff would be hard to top, but Snails continued to buildhis brand and evolve his sound to new heights. In 2018, the “Vomitstep” creator took his influence onestep further by launching his own record label, Slugz Music, as a place where he and other bass-centricartists could let their freak flags fly. “There will be no boundaries musically for the label,” Snails said.“I want to release music that really inspires me and is just as weird as me.” The first release on SlugzMusic was Snails’s remix album of “The Shell,” featuring heavy-hitting versions of his originals from Killthe Noise, Funtcase, Space Jesus, SVDDEN DEATH and more.He’s made serious headway since the founding of Slugz Music and the release of “The Shell” remixalbum, including launching his massive “The Shell 2.0” tour, releasing his own comic book series, andstunning fans with his new “SLIMEAGEDDON” EP. Snails’s epic “The Shell 2.0” tour spanned over 50 stops inNorth America and featured a holographic stage powered by groundbreaking production by Beama Visuals,the stage production wizards for Excision and other impressive clientele. During the tour Snails droppedseveral new tracks, including the popular “Magnets” with Zeds Dead ft. Akylla, which Billboard called“a love song illustrated through a mix of stirring melodies and maniacal glitches,” and “Follow Me,” hismelodic dubstep collaboration with Adventure Club. Those lucky enough to catch Snails on tour weretreated to other releases from “SLIMEAGEDDON,” such as “Redline” with Boogie T., and more. To top thingsoff, Snails turned his world to art in his new “THE SHELL: SLUGGERNAUT” comic book series, inviting his fansto delve further into his bizarre world and the characters that inhabit it. At this point Snails is headedfor a total bass music takeover, so keep an eye out for what he has up his sleeve in 2019.
