#MEGA DC feat:

Snails

‘SNAILS’ is a Montreal-based producer and DJ who pushes a forward-thinking brand of dance music combining hip-hop rhythms, dirty bass lines and off-kilter sound design. 

His first tracks appeared online in 2012 on Canadian label Kannibalen Records. Since then he has amassed a burgeoning fanbase of snail-heads and bass-lovers from all over. 

His latest original tracks that have all gone viral, “Dirty Raxxx”, “KRMT” and “RUBBR” blend hypnotic melodies, huge drops and mind-bending sample manipulation into a tight, dance-floor friendly package. 

With heavyweights like Skrillex, Diplo, Datsik, Excision, Flosstradamus and many more supporting his fresh new sound, Snails looks primed to bring his unique take on dance and bass music to the world.

Growing up on a goat farm in Arizona might not be considered the typical American upbringing for the next big DJ and producer, but then again Ghastly isn't just your typical American artist. Many have described him as a partially insane young man with a dark sense of humor. Politely abominable and casually destructive, he wields the catch phrase "born to die" as a mantra to his chaotic lifestyle. His sets have been heralded as "Energetic and eclectic live performances which are sometimes followed by odd speeches about the abnormalities of life, regretful sexual encounters, and well cooked food." With such a diverse personality and rapport for his fans, it's clear that Ghastly has one thing on his mind, and that's to change the world.

After entering the music scene and practicing his talents with touring metal bands such as The Irish Front, David Lee Crow finally found his calling with dance music and it inspired him to pack up and head to Venice Beach, California to live out of his van with no contacts or connections in a chosen gesture to truly start from the bottom and pursue a new career in electronic production. It didn't take long for him to find his place in the scene, as Ghastly quickly claimed himself a position as Bassrush Resident DJ at Exchange LA, and has also secured a number of releases on chart-topping labels such as OWSLA, Buygore, and Dim Mak to name a few.

Ghastly's approachable yet hard-hitting style ushers a forward-thinking dynamic that is not often seen in today's saturated scene, and his solo productions and collaborations present an unequivocal level of determination and finesse. Uniquely blending house, trap, and dubstep into a pot-pourri of bass, the young producer definitively pushes the boundaries of the entire EDM scene today, and a handful of the industry's finest have recognized his potential including Skrillex, Diplo, Dillon Francis, Tchami, DJ Snake, Datsik, Borgore, Zomboy, and Zeds Dead. With slew of mentally-stimulating originals and physically-altering collaborations under his belt, such as his original "Miami Connection" with Jauz and single "Crank It" with Mija & Lil Jon, it's safe to say that Ghastly is on a mission to redefine dance music for all.

him to new heights in both the bass music community and the hip hop

Hailing from the quiet Canadian province of Nova Scotia, Botnek is a sassy & fun-loving DJ/production duo. United by their love of beer and music, Gordon & Erick have been inseparable since first meeting by chance at a party in 2010. Since then, they’ve released dozens of songs, flown on a billion flights and drank a trillion brews. If you’ve never heard a Botnek song before, think about a sexy groove and some saucy synths, and you'll know what to expect. Botnek is coming to a stage near you this year so expect plenty of sass, burps & ringing ear drums.
