LA bass producer NGHTMRE and genre-bending EDM linchpins Big Gigantic team up to officially unveil new single “Like That”, out today, via Diplo’s Mad Decent. Deriving from a spectrum of genres, “Like That” fuses Big Gigantic’s live instrumentalism (sax, drums), NGHTMRE’s signature bass/trap sounds, and a vintage vocal line perfectly wrapped in a Gramatik-alike hip-hop electronica package. “Some of my first festivals I ever attended I saw Big Gigantic perform and immediately fell in love with their vibe. After meeting the guys on the road and getting along so well, it was an honor to work together on some music,” says NGHTMRE of collaborating with the festival mainstays whose work he’s admired for years. “They are both so talented and I really feel like this song represents us both well.”
“Like That” continues a rapid-fire 2018 for the unstoppable bass producer NGHTMRE, who just in the past few months has launched his own record label Gud Vibrations with DJ duo SLANDER, teamed up with chart-topping electronic/pop duo The Chainsmokers for high octane joint single “Save Yourself”, released a string of releases on Mad Decent including his collaborative Magic Hour EP with rapper Pell and recent single “Grave” with WAVEDASH, and more. Through his meticulous, earth-shattering productions and equally electrifying live sets, NGHTMRE has taken his spot as one of the leading bass producers in the scene. NGHTMRE is currently on his NGHTMRE Before XMAS tour with dates through the end of the year in SF, LA, Boston, DC, NY, and more – tickets and more info here.
Big Gigantic, whose blend of mind-bending beats, thunderous bass and frenetic melodies has developed a rapid following since forming in 2008, has quickly become one of the most celebrated acts in live music. The duo’s latest full-length album, 2016’s Brighter Future—the sixth album by Boulder, CO-based saxophonist/producer Dominic Lalli and drummer Jeremy Salken – saw their sound hit another dimension with its eclectic mix of tracks spanning from electronic and dance to hip-hop, funk and electro soul with features by Waka Flocka Flame, Logic, GRIZ and more. Big Gigantic is currently on tour through the end of the year with dates in Denver, LA, Philadelphia, and more – tickets and more info here.
