Slander - also seen in all caps as SLANDER - is the stage name for a Los Angeles-based DJ duo comprised of Scott Land and Derek Anderson. The name was devised by combining letters of both DJs' names. The pair met, along with fellow DJ and music producer NGHTMRE, while attending a music production school known as Icon Collective. Slander got its start playing gigs at venues locally and for its college acquaintances and continues to draw excited crowds to its live performances. Many people credit Slander's 2014 remix of Showtek's "We Like to Party" for its breakout success, having garnered over 12 million YouTube views.
