Based in Montreal, Canadian producer and DJ, SNAILS, has created his very own subgenre of Electronic Dance Music (EDM). SNAILS’ Vomitstep abandons the traditionally mechanical sounds of his contemporaries. Instead, the artist embraces rich organic sounds, trap rhythms, dirty bass lines, and off-kilter sound designs to create a deeply original form of dance music.
Releasing his earliest tracks in 2012, SNAILS broke into the American market with his performance at Hard Fest 2014. In early 2016, SNAILS began conquering North America on the ENTER SLUGZ CITY TOUR, which saw the bass prodigy sell-out major concert halls across the continent, and offered the beloved Vomitsquad a front-row seat to the artist’s intricate and eccentric world.
Throughout his musical journey, SNAILS has accumulated an arse- nal of impressive collaborations. Most notably, SNAILS co-produced ‘Holla Out’ with Taranchyla, Skrillex and Diplo. The track was featured on Skrillex & Diplo present Jack Ü, which won the 2016 Grammy for Best Dance/Electronic Album. The artist has released over 35 singles, surpassed 128 million streams and delivered over 450 international performances; gracing renowned EDM stages at Coachella, EDC Mexico, Tomorrowland Belgium, Sunset Music Festival, Osheaga and more.
2017 was an impressive year for SNAILS. The artist launched his first festival titled SLUGGTOPIA at Colorado’s Red Rocks Venue on Octo- ber 6th. The festival was a tremendous success, selling out to 10 000 eager fans and further solidifying SNAILS’ place amongst the elite of the EDM musical industry. SNAILS joins the likes of The Beatles and Coldplay in selling-out the renowned venue and received an award to commemorate the achievement.
Released on October 20th 2017, SNAILS’ first album THE SHELL was greeted with widespread critical acclaim. The album was added to Spotify’s Mint Playlist and has presently totaled over 12 172 507 Spo- tify streams. What’s more, THE SHELL TOUR visited 37 North Ameri- can cities in 45 days, bringing SNAILS’ music and story to 62 000 old and new fans alike. A short documentary highlighting the tour was released on March 27th, 2018.
