The amazing trap DJ duo, Derek and Scott, also known as Slander talk about how this was a dream come true. For the first time, Slander took on the main stage this year, and they blew everyone away! Slander conversed with Hannah how they are just like the attendees, they too are ravers.

This is the best day of both our lives. And, we have been working for this single moment the last seven years. –Derek Anderson, Slander.

This yummy future bass track with polished vocals by Eric Leva has a smooth transition from the beginning to the drop, convincing you to have it on repeat. To add the cherry on top, Slander recently announced their Gud Vibration Show with NGHTMRE at the NOS Center on July 29th.

The Norwegian producer, Alan Walker converses with Hannah about what his mask and hoodie means. He raises how its an image of Unity and that anybody can be a Walker. Alan points out as being that Under the Electric Sky is a great symbol of Unity as everyone coming together in one place.

Alan released a new single right before performing on day 2 also at Circuit Grounds. He collaborated with Alex Skrindo on the single titled, ‘Sky’. Just like his previous single, ‘Faded’, the sound shouts Alan’s name.
