NGHTMRE releases new hip-hop EP, ‘Magic Hour’ with rapper Pell

This post was originally published on this site

NGHTMRE has deservedly built his reputation of creating inventive sonics across a wide variety of genres, consistently dropping off hard bass drops juxtaposed with hip-hop, working with collaborators including Wiz Khalifa and PnB Rock. The LA-based producer is back with a new two-track EP titled Magic Hour, coming in as NGHTMRE‘s first release in five months. The short EP is a joint effort with emerging southern rapper Pell, blending the “No Coming Down” producer’s well-rounded production sensibilities with Pell’s infectious lyrical flow, adding another successful crossover venture to NGHTMRE’s ever-growing rap sheet.

The EP consists of two tracks — upbeat “Swiss” complete with a singalong-primed hook followed by a more laid back lo-fi inspired take on “Lights Low.” The quick twofer brings together both artist’s complementary sounds into one cohesive, albeit short, body of work, that leaves the listener wanting more. Landing by way of NGHTMRE’s longtime home imprint, Magic Hour is available now via Mad Decent.
