Of the collaboration SLANDER says, “We have been wanting to work with Synymata for a while now! He’s an incredible up and coming producer who we have big plans for on Heaven Sent. We are super happy with how the song finally shaped up. It evolved a couple times and we hope the final version connects with as many people as possible. Shout out to neverwaves for absolutely crushing the vocal and really bringing the emotion of the song to the next level.”
“‘When I’m With You’ is an ode to dream love. A story of a soulmate who visits you in your sleep. It’s that feeling when you meet the perfect one for you, and the ensuing frustration and lament of not being able to find them in real life,” shares neverwaves about his lyrics. “They haunt you with their perfection. But the experience of them is so intense, so palpable, that you are utterly convinced you will one day find them. Life will never be the same until you are united.”
SLANDER (aka Derek Andersen and Scott Land), whose accomplishments include performing at festivals around the world, sold out headline tours, leading two independent record labels, and releasing chart-topping hits, have already had a busy 2021. The duo has been focused on collaborations lately, but they also have big plans for a currently-under-wraps SLANDER project and melodic bass camping music festival.
Hailing from Milwaukee, melodic bass producer Synymata (Anthony Gomulka) grew recognition for his remix for SLANDER’s “Love is Gone” in early 2020. A recent signing to Heaven Sent, he released his very first single under the label “Where Does Love Go” in late February. Fast forward to today, SLANDER and Synymata combine forces on this collaboration with the talented vocalist neverwaves on “When I’m With You.”
SLANDER’s (Derek Andersen and Scott Land) dedication to their craft and the development of their own unique sound has earned them support from the likes of Skrillex, DJ Snake, Excision, Bassnectar, Porter Robinson and more. Other notable releases from SLANDER include “GUD VIBRATIONS” with NGHTMRE with more than 45 million Spotify plays and “All You Need To Know” with Gryffin with more than 147 million Spotify plays. Beyond building a mint name for themselves through jaw-dropping original productions and massive collaborations, SLANDER also include “label heads” to their resume. The LA-based helm the popular Gud Vibrations brand and record label with good friend NGHTMRE, based on their Mad Decent released single “Gud Vibrations,” supporting good music, good friendships, and good vibes. In 2020, SLANDER launched Heaven Sent—their solo label dedicated to more melodic and emotional leaning music with “Hurts Sometimes (with Jonathan Mendelsohn),” a collaboration with Fairlane.
