Whether he’s collaborating with DJ Diesel and Lil Jon or the Chainsmokers, NGHTMRE seems to have something under the hood that manages to keep fans on their toes at all times. This time around, the ace up NGHTMRE’s sleeve comes by way of a new collaboration with none other than A$AP Ferg. The Gud Vibrations helmer announced the new track and music video on his social media channels. Ferg and NGHTMRE’s new track is dubbed “REDLIGHT,” and it will be released on March 28.

Given the new tune’s release proximity to Ultra Music Festival, it begs the question as to if fans can expect A$AP Ferg to make an appearance during NGHTMRE’s back-to-back set with SLANDER at the festival for what would surely be a raucous live debut of the new joint cut. From the brief teaser video that was posted online, the “Grave” producer seemingly returns to his menacingly hard-hitting form on “REDLIGHT,” and with the assistance of the Trap Lord himself, NGHTMRE might have one of his biggest tracks of the year on deck just in time for one of his biggest festival outings of 2019.

Shaq, NGHTMRE, and Lil Jon prove to be a triple threat with new track ‘BANG’

Shaqulle O’Neal retired years ago from his basketball career, but whether it’s due to brand endorsements or his recent DJ gig as DJ Diesel, the former pro player can’t seem to stop making headlines. His new collaboration with NGHTMRE and Lil Jon is a continuation of just this, but their track “BANG” is not one to write off. NGHTMRE and Shaq’s influence in the new release is apparent, with its pulsing bass backdrop fused with ringing dubstep rhythms providing an ideal frame Lil Jon’s signature chants.

NGHTMRE speaks about his collaboration with Shaq in an official release, saying, “I met Shaq for the first time in Las Vegas.” He continues, “He came to one of my sets, and we immediately got along and shared our love for bass music. I’ve always played tons of Lil Jon music in my live shows, and now I get to play our own collaboration! Being able to work on music with Lil Jon and Shaq was literally a dream come true for me.”

“BANG” is out now on NGHTMRE’s own label with SLANDER, Gud Vibrations.

WAVEDASH release final track to complete their ‘Opening Ceremony’ EPWavedash Press Photo

Texas-bred trio, WAVEDASH, have illustrated they are a bass-breathing force to be reckoned with thanks to the release of their four-track EP, Opening Ceremony.

After monstrous collaborations with both NGHTMRE and SLANDER, they have fittingly released the EP on the aforementioned artists’ jointly owned label, Gud Vibrations. The compilation falls right in the sweet spot of grimy bass and catchy melodies. Title track, “Opening Ceremony” of the EP was the first song ever released on the label.

The final release of the EP, “The Same,” is now available, and it rounds out the EP with smooth, captivating vocals and soothing sonic moments before a hard-hitting drop. The track adds melodic relief and a new dynamic to the rest of the EP, which is characterized by performance-ready dubstep displays.

The trio spoke to Dancing Astronaut about Opening Ceremony and the final track release, “The Same.”

We’re so excited that ‘The Same’ is finally out as the last track on our EP, Opening Ceremony, on Gud Vibrations. The outro is particularly special as it reflects where we want our sound to go. The aesthetic for Opening Ceremony has been based on a future where bike racing is seen as a premiere event, like the Olympics.

Reliving Holy Ship! – Dancing Astronaut’s favorite moments from weekend 12.0

Reliving Holy Ship! – Dancing Astronaut’s favorite moments from weekend 12.0Holyship19c 031

Holy Ship! 12.0 was truly one for the books. With an even mixture of new and old faces across DJs and attendees, the vibe felt particularly special this time around, with talent from Mikey Lion to The Black Madonna all gushing about the magic that transpired over the weekend. The programming was as on point as the open, jubilant crowd, with a myriad of hidden stages, activity areas, and well-planned DJ sets happening all across the ship’s decks to create an even, enduring flow for all four days. Ultimately, the vibrant energy output by all involved—from the #shipfam, to the crew—made for yet another unforgettable voyage to the Bahamas.

While picking top moments of the festival feels akin to being forced to pick a favorite child, we masochistically put ourselves to the task and selected five highlights of 12.0. Without further ado…

 


JAUZ, Slander, and more at Bite This for an epic B2B

JAUZ went all out for his set at Bite This stage, playing more-or-less a producer’s set with mostly his own productions. While he’d already gotten off to a great start, onlookers got to witnessed something magical. Slander joined the bass house don on stage, followed by Holy Goof and Skepsis for what wound up being one of the most epic B2Bs of the weekend. We’re pretty sure people’s necks and feet still hurt from the chaos.


Claude VonStroke doing what he does best

Claude VonStroke played multiple times throughout Holy Ship! 12.0. Two moments were especially memorable, however. At the DIRTYBIRD private beach party, the label boss worked some serious wizardry behind the decks. This same atmosphere was present, and even more amplified, as the voyage came to a close and he took over the Theater stage with boisterous ease.  The energy in the crowd almost created a full-on second wind.

Ironically, NGHTMRE’s sailaway set was actually something out of a dream. Each tune he selected was an absolute knocker, be it his own original works, or numbers like Slander’s “Zombie,” which made the crowd completely lose it. Even more cerebral was that we got the chance to watch it from the 17th floor outside deck, which made the visuals completely surreal.


 JOYRYDE brings out the hidden gems

Those in attendance of JOYRYDE’s two Holy Ship! performances were lucky enough to catch a special preview of his upcoming album, Brave. The swiftly-rising producer pulled out a ton of IDs in each, treating his onlookers to a fresh, unheard of aural feast. Pairing with the tunes was both of his crowds’ energies. There was no stopping of the wild dancing that night, and snatching snippets of the night to look back on afterward.


Heroic substitution by Habstrakt

Sadness could be felt across the Shipfam when news arose of Audien missing the cruise due to sickness. That being said, the Holy Ship! crew had an excellent substitute up its sleeve: Habstrakt. The classically-trained Frenchman read his crowd with ease, throwing down some three of the weekend’s most noteworthy sets that, while wildly varied stylistically and through track selection, remained connected in their wildness. One might even say him coming on board was a blessing in disguise.

 

NGHTMRE ups the ante on The Chainsmokers collaboration, ‘Save Yourself’ with new VIP edit

NGHTMRE ups the ante on The Chainsmokers collaboration, ‘Save Yourself’ with new VIP editNghtmre

NGHTMRE has taken his Chainsmokers collaboration “Save Yourself” in a darker direction with his new VIP edit of the track. The original collaboration was an unexpected addition to The Chainsmokers Sick Boy album, which fused melodic elements with hard dance floor-ready drops that fans would previously have only expected to hear in a club set from the pop electronic crossover group.

Now NGHTMRE is putting his own additional touches on “Save Yourself,” notching up the track from a hard hitter to a rollercoaster of dubstep arrangements broken up by massive, swelling breaks. In addition to adding layers of bass and his own heavy handed spin on the song, NGHTMRE warps Drew Taggart’s vocals into only a figment of what they once were, using them to accent the heavier elements of the remix.

NGHTMRE and Big Gigantic team up for ‘Like That’

NGHTMRE has had an incredible come-up since “Street” became the trap anthem of 2015. He’s been repped by Mad Decent, OWSLA, and Monstercat. At Lost Lands, he announced the launch of own label with SLANDER, Gud Vibrations, named after the artists’ collaboration. One would think NGHTMRE’s hands would be full, but apparently, that’s not the case.

The 28-year-old has teamed up with Big Gigantic to release a mosaic of jazz, funk, future bass: “Like That.” The festival pleaser has the makings of an anthem, kicking off with that classic Big G circus feel — flush with hip-hop beats, brass, and reminiscent of the golden era of jazz revitalized. However, “Like That” doesn’t stay in Big G’s world entirely. The drops are contemporary — more chiseled, more demanding — and they hold a meticulous touch of a producer who has felt the acceleration of exponential growth, made possible by NGHTMRE.

“Like That” is a solid collaboration that surpasses the standards of the many genres of electronica, especially in terms of big stage festival tracks.
