Back in August, NGHTMRE and The Chainsmokers fused their very different sounds to make their “Save Yourself” single, which is a part of The Chainsmokers’ Sick Boy EP. Now, the bass producer decided to release his own, darker, dance floor-friendly “VIP” version of the track on Disruptor/Columbia Records. While the original track incorporated some melodic elements and plenty of vocal strength into its dub roots, the VIP remix delivers extra-heavy percussion, serrating synths and warped vocals that sounds much more like NGHTMRE’s signature bass sound. The latest remix of “Save Yourself” is the perfect track when you’re in the mood for head banging and thrashing out the angst that makes up the track’s core essence.
The “Save Yourself” remix comes shortly after NGHTMRE’s recent track, “Like That,” with Big Gigantic to round out an insanely successful year, which also included selling out his NGHTMRE Before Xmas tour in a few cities including San Fransisco and Los Angeles. Through his meticulous, earth-shattering productions and equally electrifying live sets, he has taken his spot as one of the leading producers in dance music. The Los Angeles-based artist has been ubiquitous for the past several years through a slew of successful releases from 2015’s instant hit “Gud Vibrations” to collaborations with Wiz Khalifa, Zeds Dead and Slander, to remixes of Ekali and Zhu’s “Blame” and Flosstradamus featuring Smokepurpp’s “MVP.”
It’s no secret that NGHTMRE’s success has been at an all time high with a residency at Hakkasan las Vegas and his Gud Vibrations events with Slander, but he only continues to grow. Stay tuned to see what this ace of bass has up his sleeve next as we step into 2019.
