After a busy and successful 2014 with numerous highlights, the hometown boys Slander finally got to come home last night. Where they landed and took us was into the heavens we call trap. Undoubtedly the Southern California natives' biggest show in LA to date, the duo literally brought it home to Create Nightclub in Hollywood.
Playing to a fun, energetic, and relentless crowd, the turn up was definitely in full affect as trap and bass took us to heaven and back. Starting the night off with a track from another Los Angeles native, Skrillex, Slander showed their love for the City of Angels and in turn received much love from the hometown crowd. This would be the first of many Skrillex tracks to be dropped, including Cinema, Ease My Mind and All is Fair in Love and Brostep, as throughout the early Saturday morning, the energy and love for LA was definitely a presence on this special occasion. This wasn't the only Los Angeles producer to have multiple remixes dropped either. Yes even LA's favorite son, Dillon Francis, had his presence felt as two of his remixes were dropped including his recent monster of Galantis' Runaway. Mixing in their own bangers and unique "heaven trap" originals that have taken the EDM community by storm, Slander proved that they are here to stay. Setting the tone early for the grime that was about to come, Coco and No Type were well received as well as a crazy bass heavy remix of Turn Down For What that got the club warmed up.
Banger after banger, Slander provided non stop energy and ensured they can be considered one of the best up and coming artists in the game today. We Like to Party is still a massive hit for the duo, and clearly all in attendance thought so as well. With the bass thundering all night and plenty of good times going around, NGHTMRE was brought up for a new track as well as their new collab banger and received a warm welcome as another up and coming producer in Los Angeles today. Somewhere in the set there was even a mysterious Flume remix sneakily dropped, and heaven only knows what will happen when it is released. Slander also paid homage to trap gods What So Not and Flosstradamus during the set and reached a peak when The Lion King overcame the club's visual display followed by their remix of Take U There by Jack U. Capping off the set in epic fashion, Slander got emotional and had the crowd on some very good feels when they ended with remixes of Seven Lions and Above and Beyond.

All in all, I was impressed by their remixes but overall I was more impressed by their original tracks that they have been furiously pumping out over the past few months. These two have been quite busy since last year and rising up in the industry has proven that they can keep up with the pace and do not let the chaos affect their production nor the frequency of releasing new productions. With their unique style and structure, along with a rising fan base and explosive live show, Slander shows no sign of slowing down. Their recent announcement of securing a residency at XS in Las Vegas proves that 2015 will be even bigger for them than last year and expect to see a lot more of the heavenly duo that is Slander.
