“Who is NGHTMRE” you ask? Tyler Marenyi, known in the electronic scene as NGHTMRE, is a 25 year old finance major from North Carolina who pursued his passion for production by honing the craft in LA. NGHTMRE initially garnered massive hype for his festival trap remix of Showtek’s “We Like To Party”. The collaboration with Slander is now one of the most recognized festival tracks to date. After the excitement from the “We Like To Party” remix, NGHTMRE has continued to slay the trap scene and is set for a headlining tour throughout 2016 with some of the biggest DJ’s in the world.
NGHTMRE’s Twitter has been blowing up over his highly anticipated release with Dillon Francis titled ‘Need You,’ which debuted late last week. In an interview yesterday with Zane Lowe on Beats 1 radio, Dillon described the new track as more of a “Weird fun moombahton vibe.” Francis incorporated his style with NGHTMRE’s unique flair, resulting in an epic blend of both artist’s distinctive sounds. “I feel like moombahton is coming back in a big way this year,” Dillon stated. Fans are already raving about this new track, saying “Dillon’s back!” and “This is definitely a Dillon x NGHTMRE collab!” I had the chance to see NGHTMRE live last Friday at one of New York City’s most iconic venues, Webster Hall, where he played ‘Need You’ to a raging response from the crowd; the track has been etched in my memory ever since.
