While primarily heralded as bass music virtuosos, electronic duo SLANDER collaborated with Said the Sky for an undeniably emotional pop-electronic collab titled “Potions” in Spring of 2019. A year later, the track is still riding the airwaves with an acoustic version released in March and the subsequent Potions (Remixes) EP.

The original track exists in an exposing space of plucked guitar and soft piano, only ever immersing itself in electronicism for an explosive hook. It is compositionally similar to mainstream pop ballads with a powerfully raw vocal performance provided by JT Roach.

The Potions (Remixes) EP – released through Monstercat – features a diverse group of established and up-and-coming artists with notable names such as Blanke, Hekler, and William Black spinning remixes.

Eleven tracks deep, the EP primarily adheres to the structure of the original track while still exhibiting versatile levels of individuality: Tisoki puts a glitch-step spin on the ear-catching hook, whereas Mazare‘s remix pushes the pace with a DnB inspired beat, and Danny Olson‘s EP-closing mix is soul-stirringly cinematic.

SLANDER returns to Twitch this Friday – April 10 – with their collaborator and label co-founder NGHTMRE to watch their B2B set from EDC Las Vegas 2018 with their fans. The broadcast begins at 7:00 pm PT at http://www.twitch.tv/slander !
