Canadian producer Snails, born Frédérik Durand, is changing the game with his much-awaited debut album, The Shell, which was finally released this month. Snails has dropped plenty of successful singles since he emerged on the scene a few years ago, but this is his first full-length album and it’s about time, considering the producer has played some high-profile festivals, like EDC Las Vegas, Electric Forest, and Ultra Music Festival.
Snails is known as the pioneer of vomitstep, a unique sub-genre of EDM, featuring exactly what it sounds like: grimy, “gutteral bass gurgles,” that make you scrunch up your face. Only vomitstep can go that hard, and Snails does not hold back. The Shell stays true to the sub-genre, featuring song after song of nasty, head-banging bass, infused with a range of other sounds, coming together in a balanced, eclectic mix. Check out the album below.
In “Feel the Vibe,” Snails collaborated with Big Gigantic and Collie Buddz for a mashup of genres. The track showcases the best of both worlds: reggae and vomitstep, inspiring feel-good dance vibes. Snails also mashes up genres in the metal remix of his track “King is Back.” The song is a head-banger for sure, and will keep you on the lookout for the closest mosh pit.
