Determined to cement his stature as one of the leading figures in bass music , Snails worked tirelessly throughout 2017 on one of his biggest projects ever, his debut album and first full-production tour, both called “The Shell”.
He debuted both at his sold-out Red Rocks concert “Sluggtopia” in September, where attendees were astonished by the innovative stage design and new music. Released in October, the eagerly-anticipated album features collaborations with noted producers like NGHTMRE, Big Gigantic and Dion Timmer and appearances by all-star vocalists like Waka Flocka and Collie Buddz. Hailed by Billboard as “a totally outrageous collection of grimy sounds and mosh pit motivation”, it was met with unanimous acclaim by dance music fans and critics alike. The tour was equally successful, packing out rooms across North America during the non-stop 48 show run. Having capped the year on such a high, Snails looks poised to enter 2018 as an indisputable king of the electronic music scene.
