NGHTMRE talks about touring, Icon Collective and future collaborations

Daily Beat Staff

Tyler Marenyi, more commonly referred to as the genre-bending DJ/producer NGHTMRE, has left his fan-base in complete awe this past year with several sold-out shows and stellar productions. Many of you may be familiar with one his most popular releases to date entitled 'Street,' the 'Nuclear Bonds' EP he dropped with Slander and the VERY recent collab 'Lighters Up' that he put together with Flosstradamus. He's been picked up by Mad Decent, Ultra Records, Play Me Records, Circus Records and Wind Up Records. While his sound caters mainly to trap n' bass enthusiasts, he can also successfully throw around a hybrid of other genres as well.


Although he didn't play at EDC Orlando, he was there to support fellow Hashtag | Jukelife signees, Slander, who also killed it per usual. Shortly after their set, he played a jam-packed after-party with Ookay at Orlando, Florida's very own GILT Nightclub. The homies, LOUDPVCK, Slander and Carnage all showed up to support and even jump in between sets. I've seen him play at both clubs and festivals and it's extremely apparent to me that this rookie has a bright future.

After doing a short interview with Marenyi, it's pretty clear that he's showing no signs of slowing down and that he's definitely a force to be reckoned with in this industry. Read on below to find out what NGHTMRE has been up to and how he's made it all happen!


Daily Beat: What's it been like touring/working  with Flux?

NGHTMRE: It has been amazing. Josh is such a nice, cool dude and we get along well. Stage production has always been on point and the crowds have been going hard!

Daily Beat: How has being a former student at Icon Collective transformed your career? Would you recommend that every aspiring producer enroll?

[vimeo 145692208 w=500 h=281]NGHTMRE: I would say everyone needs to trust their gut when it comes to their career. I felt like my music was interesting, but I lacked some of the technical skills to make it sound professional. Once I heard about Icon I felt compelled to apply because it sounded like exactly what I needed to be a bass/EDM producer/DJ. They definitely have a great curriculum, but what really made a difference was being at the actual school, in the environment with a bunch of other producers, getting feedback and sharing ideas/samples. Everyone is at a different point in their career so it's tough to suggest something for EVERY aspiring producer.

Daily Beat: You've had great success with your Mad Decent release 'Street.' Can you tell me more about the process of creating that track?

NGHTMRE: I'm always writing a lot of music, it was just a project I started at home in my room and had the idea to find a very industrial-sounding clank/pan sound and try to make a trap record with it. I definitely was inspired after hearing Baauer's "Searching for Sound" sample pack. Sometimes using organic sounds will allow you to create something you couldn't make with a synth.

Daily Beat: Is there anyone that you're thinking of collaborating with soon?

NGHTMRE: Oh man. I've got TONS of collaborations on the way. Flosstradamus, Flux Pavilion, Ghastly, Pegboard Nerds, B-Sides, Aryay, and some even bigger ones I can't mention yet. Can't wait!
