Anyone who knows Adventure Club has heard or has at least vaguely associated them with their mixtape series, Superheroes Anonymous. The duo released the first edition of Superheroes Anonymous back in 2013; the rest is history. Since then, the mixes have grown virtually synonymous with Adventure Club themselves, with the two producers putting forward the best of melodic dubstep, electro-house, trap, and hip-hop into one hour of cathartic heaven.
Now, we revisit one of Adventure Club’s most iconic mixes, Superheroes Anonymous 6: Road to Red Rocks. Road to Red Rocks showcases Adventure Club’s versatility at its best, with each track traversing through a sonic journey. Starting off with proper intensity, the mix delivers bass music from Barely Alive, Zomboy, and NGHTMRE and trap tunes like Styles&Complete & EXSSV’s “Starstruck” and Father’s “Wrist” before leveling out into melodic picks from San Holo, Sweater Beats, and Cashmere Cat. Adventure Club takes the opportunity to shift the momentum from filth to feels and energy to stillness over the course of the mix, incorporating their beloved signature sound throughout and gracefully closing out with Gallant‘s “Open Up”.
Shaquille O’neal has proven he’s far more than a one trick pony as his longtime DJ Diesel moniker continues to take off after a Hall of Fame basketball career. In addition to performing at major festivals around the world, including a forthcoming appearance at Tomorrowland, the former NBA big man recently teamed up with NGHTMRE and Lil Jon for a pulsing bass weapon, “Bang.” Now, the heavy-hitting collaboration has a visual to boot.
The trio filmed the music video for the joint track during Miami Music Week, taking the group through a list of ridiculous situations. Between getting IVs together, doing shots, or playing hide and seek, Lil Jon, NGHTMRE, and DJ Diesel provide a three-minute dose of entertainment through their MMW escapades. The video floats between animation and reality, and definitively proves that hanging out with these guys was indeed be the best that this year’s Miami Music Week had to offer.
Seven Lions has proven to be a true chameleon when it comes to his production output. The former Anjunabeats darling creates and performs everything from cutting dubstep records to euphoric trance and future bass. This fall he will embark upon a new sonic journey with Dimibo under psy trance alias, Abraxis. Fans in this niche might already recognize Dimibo, who are a Seattle based psy trance duo and a fixture on Seven Lions’ label, Ophelia Records. The project will be debuted at Dreamstate Southern California.
This announcement comes at the heels of the producer’s recent Alchemy tour announcement, which will see him perform alongside NGHTMRE, The Glitch Mob, and SLANDER at over 19 tour stops across the U.S. This in addition to Abraxis is certainly enough to keep the Seven Lions busy. While it’s clear the new project is performance-heavy, the collaborators have yet to confirm whether or not they’ll be putting out joint releases. For those looking to experience Abraxis live, Dreamstate tickets can be purchased here.
The Alchemy Tour will go down as one of the biggest electronic tours of the year, as NGHTMRE, SLANDER, The Glitch Mob, and Seven Lions hit the road together for a 19-stop road trip across the US this fall. The new Live Nation-produced tour will feature NGHTMRE and SLANDER’s Gud Vibrations show, along with additional support from theSee Without Eyestrio and melodic bass guru Seven Lions, making for a powerhouse billing that includes some of dance music’s hottest talents of the moment.
The Alchemy Tour has planned stops in Phoenix, San Francisco, Austin, Charlotte, and more, running from September through mid-October. Tickets go on sale on June 20 here.
NGHTMRE thrives on heavy, trap-inspired bass productions—it’s where he lives. He’s collaborated with a grip of top hip-hop talents, recently dropping a VIP edit of his A$AP Ferg collaboration, “REDLIGHT.” The Gud Vibrations helmer is also fresh off of a heavy bass posse cut with Shaquille O’Neal and Lil Jon on “BANG.”
Last year, NGHTMRE began a new label with Slander, Gud Vibrations. Since then, the label has grown a steady reputation for crafting high energy dance-floor heaters. NGHTMRE’s set, broadcasting live from the Cosmic Meadow at 1:30am PST (Sunday), will surly keep those good vibrations at high levels.
NGHTMRE returns with his latest remix, an addictive treatment of LA-based artist Oliver Tree‘s hit single “Hurt.” NGHTMRE first premiered the remix at his Coachella performance earlier this year when he threw down at the Sahara tent. The Gud Vibrations co-founder has dropped some heavy-hitting releases in 2019, collaborating with A$AP Ferg on “REDLIGHT” and triple-teaming with Lil Jon and Shaquille O’Neal on “Bang.” Both tracks skew to the low-end, though NGHTMRE’s “Hurt” remix and its melodic production sees a departure from the harder sounds. With his latest remix, NGHTMRE wants to remind everyone he can still do both.
The new remix takes “Hurt” on a classic future-bass ride that amps up the track’s dance floor appeal, infusing vibrating synth waves into his new production. Retaining the basic elements of Oliver Tree’s original track, NGHTMRE delivers an embellished electronic makeover to “Hurt,” transforming the angsty alternative jam to an appropriate club energizer.
Flosstradamus gives NGHTMRE and A$AP Ferg‘s “REDLIGHT” a bass upgrade in his brand new remix of the recent collaboration. In the original, A$AP Ferg’s punching verses feed off the intensity of shrill horns, drum rolls, and deep-seated drops, all of which imbue “REDLIGHT” with an aggressive, cinematic sonic personality that renders the track yet another hype-inducing number to bear the NGHTMRE stamp. NGHTMRE followed the debut of the hip-hop electronic hybrid with a VIP rework of the original, where NGHTMRE sank the song’s defining bass synths to a graver, low-end position.
NGHTMRE’s submission of the throttling original and rework of the aforementioned has now caught the attention of trap aficionado, Flosstradamus, who comes through with a hard hitting “REDLIGHT” revamp. Flosstradamus’ re-imaginative effort is no less potent than either of NGHTMRE’s showings. Flosstradamus preserves the adrenaline spiking horn work and A$AP Ferg’s verses. Much of the producer’s revision is audible in the tune’s builds, where Flosstradamus swaps out the simmering ascent of NGHTMRE’s original for a rise that is noticeably quicker in pace. The ascents momentarily give way to drops derivative of Flosstradamus’ trap expertise. As the trap veteran’s remix so incontrovertibly conveys, there’s certainly nothing weak about Flosstradamus’ version of the NGHTMRE fan favorite.
Each week, New Music Friday sweeps through with torrential force, showering streaming platforms with immeasurable amounts of new tunes. Just like Dancing Astronaut rounds up 25 of the biggest songs of the week for the Hot 25 Spotify playlist each New Music Friday, Lunar Lunes serves as a landing pad for SoundCloud users who want a whole new dose of tunes to kick off the work week.
For potent bass productions, electronic music fans need not look further than NGHTMRE. 2019 has been a year of bass-wielding singles for NGHTMRE, who recently dropped off a VIP edit of his A$AP Ferg collaboration, “REDLIGHT.” Prior, NGHTMRE sent streamers’ speakers a booming with Shaquille O’Neal and Lil Jon on “BANG.”
NGHTMRE’s slew of original releases evidences the Gud Vibrations label head’s expertise in crafting intense dance-floor hitters. NGHTMRE’s set, broadcasting live from the Sahara tent, will now expectedly follow suit. View Coachella’s weekend one live stream schedule in its entirety, here.
NGHTMRE is on pace for a career year in 2019. The LA-based producer is known for his terrorizing bass synths, but he has proven himself capable of producing punk rock, rap, and more, each time defined by his distinct production style.
This year, the producer has been teaming up with various hip-hop sensations including Lil Jon for “BANG” and now A$AP Ferg for “REDLIGHT.” As he did with his previous Chainsmokers collaboration “Save Yourself,” NGHTMRE has come out with a new solo VIP edit of “REDLIGHT.” The VIP edit leans on deafening, intense bass breaks, toning down the “Hungry Fam” rapper’s versework, juxtaposing Fergs bars against the heavy low end drops to create a second main stage-worthy version of the collaboration.
