Some DJs are content taking a stage, twisting a few knobs, playing other people’s music. Not Tyler Marenyi, aka NGHTMRE. You’ll never catch him on autopilot, standing around, gazing into a sea of glow sticks and sweaty dance moves.
NGHTMRE is about the art, creating new sounds, transcending what others have done. It’s a recipe for originality that has the North Carolina-born, now L.A.-based NGHTMRE trending upward in the world of EDM music. That’s why Skrillex has taken notice. Why he got an invite to play the 2015 Electric Daisy Carnival.
One might call him a NGHTMRE worth having — but judge for yourself. Watch the live performance of his song “Street” above. And if you like what you hear, check out his big picture story in the Uproxx original series, Uncharted.
He’s like nothing you’ve ever heard.
