Slander, consisting of Derek Anderson and Scott Land, have been making waves since they burst onto the scene in 2013. Their remix of Showtek‘s “We Like to Party” established them as a trap powerhouse within the industry. A surprise set on the Nocturnal mainstage in 2014 forced them into the mainstream eye and it’s all taken off from there. For anybody who’s been following this duo since the beginning, they know how much they’ve grown. The pair are considered creators of the genre “heaven-trap”, producing music that provides the bass and the feels. It’s something that nobody else does quite like them; check it out for yourself when they’re at Decadence on the 31st!
