Perhaps our favorite producer friendship of 2016 is between NGHTMRE and Slander. Together, these three individuals have been storming the world of bass music from their collaborative “Nuclear Bonds” EP of last year, to their Gud Vibrations Tour taking over the United States on 30 stops this fall. Often seen at each other’s sets and bookings, NGHTMRE and the duo that is Slander are the definition of friendship goals.
This week, NGHTMRE released his take on Slander’s track “Dead,” which is on the remix package of their Duality EP. It begins with soft legato synths taking you into a galactic realm, and then shortly after booms in with some harder bass. The drop is pure trap; serenading the listener with those half-time bass lines and smooth bellows driving the track. Its really no wonder why this was the first “Dead” remix listed on the EP. With a great friendship like theirs, it’s easy to see how smooth this remix by NGHTMRE turned out as great minds think alike.
