For his first release of the year, NGHTMRE teams up with Shaquille O’Neal (aka DJ Diesel) and Lil Jon for their new single “BANG”. Fusing heavy bass with rap vocals and hip-hop rhythms, “BANG” delivers enough attitude and heavy-hitting sound effects to take over clubs and festival stages around the globe. “BANG” is out on NGHTMRE’s and SLANDER’s label Gud Vibrations. The “BANG” collaboration came about after NGHTMRE’s and Shaquille O’Neal’s recent back-to-back NYE performance at Decadence AZ proved to be earth-shattering. “I met Shaq for the first time in Las Vegas. He came to one of my sets, and we immediately got along and shared our love for bass music.” says NGHTMRE. “I’ve always played tons of Lil Jon music in my live shows, and now I get to play our own collaboration! Being able to work on music with Lil Jon and Shaq was literally a dream come true for me.”
NGHTMRE has collaborated with some of the biggest names in music – including PnB Rock, Zeds Dead, Dillon Francis, Big Gigantic and The Chainsmokers – and has enough original hits to be a force all on his own. The Los Angeles-based artist’s fast-paced, exhilarating live sets have earned him a loyal fanbase. His packed tour schedule has included a Hakkasan Las Vegas residency, Lollapalooza (Chicago, Paris, Berlin, Brazil) EDC (Las Vegas, Orlando, Mexico, Tokyo), Electric Zoo, Mysteryland, Creamfields, Amnesia Ibiza, Shambhala, Middlelands, Coachella, Ultra Music Festival, Holy Ship!, and Tomorrowland as well as his own Gud Vibrations multi-event series with SLANDER. Through his unique style and collaborations with legends such as Shaq and Lil Jon, NGHTMRE takes another step forward as a leader of modern, experimental bass music.
“BANG” is 15 x NBA All Star and 4 x NBA Champion Shaquille O’Neal’s first production in over 20 years. Shaquille’s 1993 rap album, “Shaq Diesel,” did the unthinkable of selling over a million copies and peaked at no. 25 on the Billboard Hot 100 Chart cementing O’Neal as the only athlete ever with a platinum-selling album. Today, DJ Diesel has grown into one of the biggest touring artists in the world headlining festival and clubs around the world such as Tomorrowland, Lost Lands, and even his own festival series – Shaq’s Fun House. “When it comes to dance music, NGHTMRE is my Larry Bird. We spent a ton of time in the studio making ‘BANG’ and I called up my favorite rapper in the game to lay a verse down – Lil Jon” says O’Neal.
Grammy Award-winning artist, Lil Jon, rounds out the track with his iconic voice bringing it to new energetic heights. The Atlanta rapper is best known for producing multi-platinum hits including “Get Low,” “Goodies,” “Yeah!,” and “Turn Down For What.” Lil Jon has worked with a wide array of artists such as will.i.am, Miley Cyrus, Steve Aoki, Britney Spears, Travis Barker and more. No matter if you’re a basshead or rap and hip-hop diehard, NGHTMRE, Shaquille O’Neal, and Lil Jon’s original “BANG” is a track you won’t want to miss.

BLVD. Self-Releases Hard-Hitting Second Track “Full Send”
The world was introduced to BLVD. with his debut single “Crowd Control” back in May, and now the safety-yellow clad artist is back with his follow up “Full Send”. Every bit as heavy and gritty as its predecessor, the new track delivers a hard-hitting dose of ominous basslines, jarringly mechanical synths and bone-shaking percussion. BLVD.’s unique approach to bass music centers on creating an atmosphere within every song, and in “Full Send” one can almost feel the concrete jungle locales where the artist takes his namesake from grittiness and grandiosity are the contrasting elements that BLVD. lives by. Take a listen to “Full Send” and join the BLVD. movement, one track at a time.
Boulevards are made of much more than stone, sand, gravel, and asphalt. At their essence, they are a culmination of a million journeys – so many individual steps, tires, waste, and grime – and yet they are enduring, through rain and snow and heat, and majestic in their ability to withstand all that humans and nature may throw at them. BLVD.’s music represents the beauty in grit through his heavy-hitting yet welcoming sound. Although not much is known about BLVD. to date, he’s already received support from influential artists such as Diplo & Friends, Alison Wonderland, RL Grime, 4B, Nitti Gritti, and Ekali. We can bet that “Crowd Control” and now “Full Send” are really only the beginning of something much bigger. Stay tuned for more music and news from BLVD. coming soon!

GRAVEDGR Teams Up With Lit Lords For Hard-Trap Inspired Track “RAWSIDE”
Notoriously mysterious producer GRAVEDGR is back on Carnage’s Heavyweight Records, this time teaming up with a duo with equally heavy taste in Bass music – Texan duo Lit Lords, who bring their hard-Trap sound to the new release “RAWSIDE”. True to its name, the track delivers a cacophonous, disharmonized mixture of ear-splitting, mind-bending effects, including stabbing and serrating synths, deep warbling basslines and its signature vocal hook “welcome to the RAWSIDE.” The new single is GRAVEDGR’s 6th release on Heavyweight, following his recent “KAMIKAZE” and its VIP version earlier this year. Lit Lords are known for their prior releases on Dim Mak, Harsh Records and Thrive Music. Let’s hope there are more collaborations to come from these forces of nature very soon!
Take one look at GRAVEDGR, and it’s easy to see where his name comes from – always donning black attire and his signature face mask, it’s no surprise that his day job is literally digging graves. All the time spent contemplating mortality must have inspired his musical sound, which can be summed up as simultaneously scary, melodic, and hard. Having made his debut performances during insane shows at EDC Las Vegas and LA’s El Rey Theatre last summer, this mysterious character also seems to have a knack for creating catchy music that always works the crowd into a frenzy. GRAVEDGR’s debut single “RAMPAGE,” released in 2018, has amassed over 9 million streams on Spotify alone and we look forward to see what he has up his sleeve next.
