Snavs & NXSTY Cook Up Suspenseful Trap on “Flex”

Shifting between dark atmospheric soundscapes and razor sharp trap drops, Snavs and NXSTY cook up a suspenseful Dim Mak debut with “Flex.”

Snavs is a Copenhagen-based artist who creates a forward-thinking, uncompromising productions. While his name translates to “dirt” in Danish, Snavs is known for his use of both filthy bass sound design, as well as melodic future bass arrangements. Since breaking through in 2013 via his debut EP 808%, Snavs has become one of the great dance music success stories out of Denmark. He’s toured the globe playing sold out shows in Australia, Asia, Europe, and North America, and released music on Spinnin’, Monstercat, Mad Decent, Lowly Place, as well as his own Riotville Records. His tracks have received support from the likes of Diplo, DJ Snake, Martin Garrix, Major Lazer, The Chainsmokers, Tiësto, Dillon Francis, and his Fabian Mazur collaborations “Arena” and “Exhale” have collectively gained over 20M on-demand streams.

Joining Snavs on “Flex” is Vancouver-based producer NXSTY. NXSTY’s eclectic appreciation of diverse musical genres shines through in his productions, which range from hard bass-fueled music to softer, soulful grooves. Since releasing his 2018 New Noise debut “Swisher” alongside Badrapper, NXSTY has been on a tear, dropping banger after banger. Last year he released an album’s worth of music via several singles, including “Buck,” “Coup,” “Paimon,” and joined Badrapper once again for “Catch My Vibe,” which earned praise from the likes of Run The Trap, EDM Tunes and EDM Sauce. Responsible for some of the hardest hitting tunes in recent memory, NXSTY is proving to be one of the most exciting up-and-coming producers.
