Published

Shaquille O'Neal
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.

NAZAAR Releases Hard-Hitting, Yet Emotive 6-Track ‘VISNS’ EP

Published

on

VISNS
Following his recent single release “WAR CRY” with Virus Syndicate, and earlier “Shadows” with Louiejayxx, the American-Pakistani artist NAZAAR releases his full EP ‘VISNS, a 6-track package that is a true sonic journey through the realms of Bass music. From the ominous and eerie “WITH U” to the vocal-forward, emotive “LIES” featuring Hera Lynn, ‘VISNS’ is a representation of NAZAAR’s creative genius as he produces music that appeals to the heart and on the dance floor. The EP’s outro “LOVE BURNS” leaves the listener with a catharsis that’s especially rare for the type of heavy-hitting and yet cinematic music that NAZAAR has created. ‘VISNS’ gives NAZAAR a strong start to the year, leaving us wondering what else he has in store for the rest of 2022.

➤ Download/Stream

The ‘VISNS’ EP is more than just another project; it stands for a cause that’s greater than me. VISNS is a body of work that’s supposed to help listeners dig deeper into their thoughts and make sense of the visions they have for themselves. In a dark time, I found my peace in writing music, stories with an audible addition to them. Each song on this EP is a story within itself, a story about the inner fight to find peace, the struggle with anger and fear, and the relief of finally letting go. VISNS is a story about me finally finding myself and having absolute clarity about my future. 6 songs, 6 stories, 6 different feelings; that is what VISNS is. I hope everyone who gives it a listen is able to feel what I felt when writing these songs and finds out just a little bit more about their own VISNS. NAZAAR

Raised between Pakistan and America, Farhan Zahir – better known as NAZAAR – has made his signature sound a combination of his roots and his western upbringing, the hidden riches of the Middle East, with the prominent sounds of electronic dance music. He has previously worked with Carnage on “Blitzkrieg” and had a stream of solo independent singles, such as “Jinn” or “Guru.” His past releases have found homes on Never Say Die, Space Yacht, Bassrush, and Columbia Records, where NAZAAR has put out his remix of The Chainsmokers’ “Sick Boy.” In 2018, he released a single titled “A Dance With Death,” which enjoyed unprecedented DJ support from the likes of Excision, RL Grime, Zomboy, and many more. The success of this single forged the path to NAZAAR’s debut 5-track EP titled ‘The Legacy’ on Never Say Die in early 2019. Keep an eye out for more new music coming soon!

After giving listeners a taste of the magic with “Hot” earlier this year, XAVAGE continues to carry the energy with three more tunes packing sweltering 808s, hypnotic tempo changes, and oscillating beatwork.
