When it comes to bass music, the path both Slander and NGHTMRE have laid out in 2016 has to be one of the most crucial we’ve seen. Conquering their North American Gud Vibrations Tour, along with the mega release of EP Nuclear Bombs, when it comes to EDM tastemakers, this trio is one that certainly sets the standard. That being said, taking part in Slander’s remix package for their upcoming Duality EP, who better to join in on the fun than NGHTMRE himself? Continuing to push boundaries with his untamable yet exciting sound, NGHTMRE’s challenge of remixing Slander’s monster, “Dead”, is now becoming a habit most can’t break.
With feverish synth work intertwined with progressive bass medleys, NGHTMRE’s rework of “Dead’s” foundation exercises production technicality and unwavering sound design. From the top of the track listeners are brought in with mastering synth work and a drop that truly solidifies NGHTMRE’s ever growing spot in today’s electronic spectrum. Aside from its power, the remix also includes today’s newest trend of altering the first drop so as the song comes to a finish, NGHTMRE’s second climax is a complete change that’s both gripping, and muddy.
Check out NGHTMRE’s rework of “Dead” here, and don’t forget to watch out for the rest of their Gud Vibrations Tour stops.
