I could not think of a cooler collab if I tried tbh! My loves Carmada - my super homies that I am dying to see again are coming back and I am so so so excited! They keep teasing us with photos and clips that new music is coming ... and it's started with this awesome new track "Embrace ft. Xavier Dunn" with NGHTMRE. Having these two legends work together is better than all the things, and combining that huge dirty trap NGHTMRE sound with Carmada's sexy smooth future style has got me swooning! Cant wait for more!
Happy Mother's day to all the mommy's out there! Today I'm hanging out with my family, and it's a beautiful day in Northern California! Birds are chirping, the sun is shining, and my Mom is currently head bobbing to this new NGHTMRE track and I think it's hilarious. She's definitely not a hip-hop fan, but she has good taste and when she hears a beat she likes she'll do some booty shakin' for sure! Our boy NGHTMRE got his hands on "Lean Back" by Terror Squad and flipped it into this delicious Trap dance floor heater - and hey .... if it can get my mom boppin' around then it has to be good!
Some mornings it's just easy to roll out of bed and have the perfect pick me up jam to enjoy with that first cup of coffee - and that totally just happened with this new Unlike Pluto remix of "Superstar ft. Krewella" by Pegboard Nerds & NGHTMRE. This Los Angeles producer never seems to let us down with his big sound and bouncy melodies, and he crushes this one with his boisterous dance flavor. Have a good morning!
I'm gonna borrow an Erin line here and also copy what OWSLA had to say about this one: this "New one from LOUDPVCK & NGHTMRE is absolutely bananas," ha ha that's almost certainly an understatement. Tyler aka NGHTMRE can check another artist off his list of collaborators in what seems like an effort to work with every trap and bass heavy artist in the game. At this point we've seen a ton of new material arrive from the scary dreams camp and all just perfectly in time for Halloween. LOUDPVCK on the other hand hasn't been quite as active in the last couple months with their latest being a really dope remix of Kill the Noise's "Without A Trace." Regardless, last week we were given a banger record in "Click Clack" featuring a glitchy lead line and a hype vox sample that's gonna spike your Tuesday. The second drop bumps it even harder getting a little hardstyle for a bit before dropping back down into half time. Get your trap arms ready for this one. You can download/stream from OWSLA here.
Wow lets just talk about NGHTMRE collaborations for a second. Just in the last 10 months the night terror captain has hit the studio with a career capitalizing 6 superstar names, legends in their own right, from the likes of Flosstradamus for "Lighters Up," Dillon Francis for "Need You," and Pegboard Nerds & Krewella for "Superstar." On top of that, just recently he's been surging with MASSIVE collabs with Flux Pavilion in "Feel Your Love," and now Zeds Dead for "Frontlines." "Frontlines" is a rawkus cut that quickly rolls out from the second you hit play exploding into a fun future bass drop. The verses feature a ping pong like synth pluck behind GG Magree's sultry vocals. The vocal chops explode with hype and energy, put into place with microscopic precision that NGHTMRE simply does best. If NGHTMRE continues at this pace I think he'll have worked with every big name in the business. That works for us hey Tyler...please keep 'em coming! You can nab this on all digital retailers here.
We're going to keep the momentum going for Thoreau who's having a hell of a month. From making the re-brand, to his first release (check out his "Low" remix) going #1 on Hype Machine, and now an official remix for electronic heavy hitters Krewella, Pegboard Nerds and NGHTMRE. By now you've probably already heard the original, but Thoreau has put his signature future bass sound on this hype anthem. Bursting open with piano and the "Superstar" vox chops, the track quickly builds into a larger than life bright flaring synth chorus with deep sub and the occasional fluttering arp. The record channels ahead and we're treated to a signature Thoreau guitar solo in the second chorus that keeps you locked in. Thoreau has quickly moved his career from walking to jogging, and if he keeps releasing tunes like this he'll be at top speed very soon.

This makes the second artist I've supported in the last week or so, that has embarked on the sometimes necessary re-brand. Being a musician myself I know how important a good transition can be, so I'm excited to introduce and support DNMO with his first release a killer remix of the dynamite collab "Superstar." This young british producer (only 15!) cranks it up to 11 with the quick melodic build bringing us into a full bodied, bitcrush fueled drop that surprises and entices. He's flipped the hyped original into a slower, bass blowing gem with a consistent vox chop leading the way ahead of the deep sub and bright wide saws. Already receiving support and finding it's way into the hype machine popular chart, we have no hesitation lending our support to this up and coming producer as well. Be looking out for more bassy goodness coming from this camp. You can nab this as a free download here.
Holy mother of collabs, this is a big one from three heavy hitters. The Pegboard Nerds have continued their heat streak crankin' out tunes just about every month. This time they've split duties with NGHTMRE who has been on a meteoric rise over the last year finally hitting record heights with collabs like this and with Dillon Francis in "Need You." The cherry on top is the return to form of Krewella who have lent their lovely vocals to this record cementing the magnificent enormity of the tune. Energetic, positive and spicy af "Superstar" lives up to it's name ready to pound dance floors this summer. You can also listen on Spotify here.
Well this is a hell of a way to get my Friday started. You may have seen this hit the interwebs yesterday, but I'm still getting buck wild for this collaboration of the most epic proportions! Dillon has firmly secured himself a pretty sweet spot in dance music history and NGHTMRE is quickly on his way to the same at a super young age. "Need You" is a moomba-esque, grimy, dubby concoction with top notch sound design. The decline after the first drop is admirably melodic, something I would expect from these two and the build features a major lazor-esque rasta vocal that turns this track into overdrive. We definitely now have a certified festival anthem primed and ready to go for this summer. Expect to hear this get played...a lot. You can download on iTunes here.
