Derek Andersen and Scott Land, popularly known as SLANDER, are GRAMMY-nominated American electronic music producers, recognized for their emotional and melodic bass music sound. They have established themselves as a unique duo in the electronic dance music industry, delivering a distinct vibe to their tracks. Their latest single “Wish I Could Forget” represents a remarkable collaboration effort featuring spectacular vocals from blackbear, who is known for his multi-platinum-selling music, and the British five-piece band, Bring Me The Horizon, who have been nominated for multiple awards, including GRAMMY recognitions. The song is released in partnership with SoundCloud, a leading streaming platform popularly known among the independent artist community.

We have been fans of both of them for years, so to hear bear and Oli together on one track is truly incredible.”
