Music Monday: NGHTMRE x Shaquille O’Neal x Lil Jon, Franky Nuts, R3HAB, The Japanese House, Tiffany Young, Matroda, and SJae

For his first release of the year, NGHTMRE teams up with Shaquille O’Neal (aka DJ Diesel) and Lil Jon for their new single “BANG.” Fusing heavy bass with rap vocals and hip-hop rhythms, “BANG” delivers enough attitude and heavy-hitting sound effects to take over clubs and festival stages around the globe. NGHTMRE has collaborated with some of the biggest names in music – including PnB Rock, Zeds Dead, Dillon Francis, Big Gigantic and The Chainsmokers – and has enough original hits to be a force all on his own. The Los Angeles-based artist’s fast-paced, exhilarating live sets have earned him a loyal fanbase. His packed tour schedule has included a Hakkasan Las Vegas residency, Lollapalooza (Chicago, Paris, Berlin, Brazil) EDC (Las Vegas, Orlando, Mexico, Tokyo), Electric Zoo, Mysteryland, and more.

“BANG” is 15 x NBA All-Star and 4 x NBA Champion Shaquille O’Neal’s first production in over 20 years. Shaquille’s 1993 rap album, “Shaq Diesel,” did the unthinkable of selling over a million copies and peaked at no. 25 on the Billboard Hot 100 Chart cementing O’Neal as the only athlete ever with a platinum-selling album. Today, DJ Diesel has grown into one of the biggest touring artists in the world headlining festival and clubs around the world such as Tomorrowland, Lost Lands, and even his own festival series – Shaq’s Fun House.

 

Franky Nuts is following up the electric ‘With You’ with a new sub splitting masterpiece ‘Your Lies’ featuring the ridiculous talent of Voicians.

Having gained a considerable following in the bass music scene, Franky is a favorite of many of the world’s most famous producers such as Flux Pavilion, Jauz, Downlink, Excision, Crizzly, Chime and more, such is his enviable ear for catchy hooks.

 

A brand new release comes from R3HAB, which is a cover version of XXXTENTACION’s “BAD!” The track was released via R3HAB’s CYB3RPVNK label, as a commercial release, and follows “Radio Silence” EP released last week off R3HAB’s 2018’s album – The Wave.

Right off the bat “BAD!” got added to 27 Spotify’s New Music Friday playlists (incl. The Netherlands, Mexico, USA, Canada, South America, United Kingdom). R3HAB starts a hot streak of releases of fresh music he has planned for 2019. Also, on Feb 02 he will kick off The Wave-themed North American tour.
