NGHTMRE Unveils Newest Chapter In His EP Series, UNSOUND 2

A six-track EP by NGHTMRE just came out. The sophomore edition of his collaboration-fueled NGHTMRE UNSOUND series features fellow Bass maestros such as Rezz, Liquid Stranger, Franky Nuts, Ace Aura, and more. The EP release follows NGHTMRE’s EDC Las Vegas headlining set at the Basspod Stage.

A decade into his career, Trap/Dubstep kingpin NGHTMRE is still finding ways to push his artist project into new directions. No small feat given his long list of impressive accomplishments. 

Since launching his NGHTMRE moniker 10 years ago, the LA-based producer/DJ/label boss has cemented his status as a visionary harbinger of the global Bass music community, boasting performances at Tomorrowland, Ultra Music Festival, Coachella, and Bonnaroo; securing a tenured residency at Hakkasan Las Vegas; co-founding his GUD VIBRATIONS imprint with SLANDER; and collaborating with superstars like ZHU, A$AP Ferg, The Chainsmokers, Gunna, Zeds Dead, Tory Lanez, and more.

Now, fresh off his EDC Las Vegas headlining set at the BassPod, NGHTMRE unveils UNSOUND 2, the newest installment in his tastemaking EP series. Launched in 2022 with its inaugural edition, the UNSOUND concept is a vessel for cultivating cross-genre collaborations and championing emerging dubstep acts. This multi-purpose project showcases NGHTMRE’s world-class production and curatorial talents.

The UNSOUND projects are all about collaboration“, says NGHTMRE. “I reached out to some of my favorite producers from all over the world for this EP. I really tried not to think too much on a specific genre or boundary for this, and just focused on writing what felt cool and inspiring“.


All the tracks have been going over extremely well in my live sets, and I’m so excited to finally drop them all!


NGHTMRE — UNSOUND: Tracks And Collaborations

On a mission to pave the way for the next generation of Dubstep and Trap artists, the passionate tastemaker uses his UNSOUND series to platform hotly-tipped talents who will help push the Bass genre forward.

On UNSOUND 2, NGHTMRE amalgamates Bass juggernauts with rising stars to create a propulsive package of textural soundscapes. The 6-track EP matches its varied aesthetic palette with an appropriately lavish scope, brimming with boisterous beats and gripping sound design.

The EP’s grandiose, opulent approach is exemplified on tracks such as ‘TORTURE‘, a collaboration with Dutch Bass prodigy Franky Nuts and goth-inspired vocalist DeathbyRomy. Kicking off with lush piano chord progressions that underline DeathbyRomy’s haunting opening verse. The track builds with atmospheric textures and ascending synths before dropping into a section of massive, syncopated bass rhythms. This jagged soundscape contributes to the track’s cathartic unease. 

The rest of UNSOUND 2’s tracklist is filled with similarly forward-thinking, ferocious presentations. The EP’s opening track ´In Your Eyes´ is a collaboration with experimental Bass purveyor Jon Casey and producer/vocalist Pauline Herr. NGHTMRE taps some of the most in-demand up-and-coming acts to create a towering sonic arena full of distorted, growling bass wubs and thunderous, trunk-rattling percussion.

Bold, audacious, and immaculately constructed, UNSOUND 2 is a spellbinding exhibition of NGHTMRE’s collaborative production prowess. Showcasing the curatorial maestro’s penchant for marshaling his beloved Bass scene toward exciting new heights.
