There are far and few producers who have melded the worlds of both electronic music and hip-hop more methodically than NGHTMRE has in 2019. After offering a twofer of both a traditional and dubstep rendering of his A$AP Ferg collaboration, “REDLIGHT” this past spring, an analogous deal was surely expected when NGHTMRE doubled down with Gunna for “CASH COW” just one month ago. Those who have been in attendance for NGHTMRE’s visually enthralling The Portal Tour these past few weeks knew that this day was surely imminent as he discharges the re-energized mix of “CASH COW,” with the help of BLVK JVCK.
NGHTMRE admirably gratifies every desire that his purist supporters may have been seeking as the dubstep-engulfed behemoth swings the conventional trap instrumental on its head. In a message to Billboard Dance regarding the collaboration, NGHTMRE had this to say:
“Working with Gunna on ‘Cash Cow’ was really a special experience. I always knew I wanted to make a higher energy VIP version of the track for my live shows. Blvk Jvck is insanely talented and as soon as he sent me this idea I knew it would be perfect to work in together as a collaboration. It feels like a great blend of both our sounds.”

NGHTMRE is keeping his portfolio of music diverse with newest release “CASH COW” featuring Gunna. The single is a Hip Hop release, and it is a refreshing change of pace for listeners who are a fan of NGHTMRE’s ability to produce a wide variety of musical genres.
Many electronic producers have diversified their sound by releasing cross genre singles. These songs frequently enlist elements of non-electronic genres but fuse them with electronic drops. Unlike many electronic music producers who release cross-genre singles, NGHTMRE is known to release strictly Hip Hop singles with no electronic elements juxtaposed with his heavy hitting electronic output.
“CASH COW” is an example of one of NGHTMRE’s strictly Hip Hop releases thanks to its simple and catchy note progression that builds around Gunna’s lyrics. Gunna’s rapping serving as the focal point of the release, and the low BPM makes the track the antithesis of what fans could expect to be featured in NGHTMRE’s live sets. “CASH COW” would find a perfect home in a Hip Hop club.
The single follows NGHTMRE’s recent collaboration with Grabbitz, “Bruises,” which is contrastingly melodic. “CASH COW” is out now via Ultra Records.
While best known for his work in the electronic music community, blistering rap production is not unfamiliar territory for NGHTMRE. Previously working with artists such as A$AP Ferg, Pnb Rock & Wiz Khalifa, and Pell, the producer looks to grow his resume with this addictive rap cut. “CASH COW” features the luxe energy and swagger of
