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.
