Snyder and Michael Eakins have come together on “Underwater” — a perfect brand new release that fittingly drops just in time for the close of the summer season. “Underwater” from Snyder & Michael Eakins is available worldwide on Friday, September 2.

Underwater” is an end-of-summer anthem which serves up yet another stunning production from Snyder, this time accompanied by the talented Michael Eakins. Eakins provides a hypnotizing vocal, which complements Snyder’s deep and groovy production. Marking the anticipated return of Snyder since his debut album In The Dark dropped in Feb. 2021, “Underwater” is truly a deep house gem with mainstream appeal — and you’ll definitely find yourself playing this one on repeat.

Riding off a recent placement on NBC’s Peacock summer-smash Love Island USA, Snyder’s “Crazy” with 51b was included in season 4, episode 14 of the series. As a go-to performer within the electronic dance music (EDM) circuit, Snyder is known for some of his headlining and support performances at some of the biggest and most popular venues across North America. Snyder has performed alongside the likes of Gryffin, RL Grime, Cheat Codes, Shaq (Diesel), Bryce Vine, Bonnie X Clyde, Chris Lake, 3LAU, Elephante, Henry Fong, Nitti Gritti, Ship Wrek, Phantoms, Tritonal, Two Friends, and more.

“Michael and I are great friends that have been collaborating for the last few years, we made this one from start to finish in my home studio, we wanted a smooth summery energy that our fans could really vibe with. I love how it came out, and I play this during sets, on the beach, when I’m just chilling with my friends and we hope you guys do too.” — SNYDER
