LA electronic producer NGHTMRE has a love affair with bass. He’ll take it hard and heavy, trapped out or futuristic. He doesn’t care about the flavor, as long as it sticks to your ribs, and on his latest release, he tries his hand at some lowkey hip-hop for lazy summer Sundays. We’ve got to say, he handles it well — or should we say Pell?
The “Need You” beat-maker got with the charismatic MC for two delicious tunes that flow easy in shades of sunset. Dance fans may remember Pell from the work he did with Big Gigantic back in 2016. Dubbed the Magic Hour, the EP starts with catchy groove on confident A-side “Swiss” and comes sensual on mood setter “Lights Low.” Pell’s charming verses are pop perfectly over NGHTMRE’s impeccable production.
NGHTMRE said he’s always admired Pell’s creativity and vibe, adding that it was an honor to hop in the studio to make some magic. Pell agrees that EP is perfect for all Summer shenanigans. Magic Hour is out everywhere on Mad Decent Friday, June 15, but you can listen to the EP in full below, exclusively on Billboard Dance.
