Though he started with hard-hitting bass tunes, NGHTMRE has proven himself one of the most diverse producers in electronic music. He’s scored hits with rappers, pop stars, and fellow DJs.
• Growing up in North Carolina, Tyler Marenyi attended a Christian school and played on the tennis team. He also earned a degree in finance before studying production at ICON Academy.
• While at ICON, he met close collaborators Slander, with whom he now runs the Gud VIbrations record label and radio show.
• He earned his first charting single in 2016 with the moombah-laced house-pop hit “Need You,” alongside DJ and producer Dillon Francis. It reached No. 21 on Billboard’s Hot Dance Electronic Songs chart, as did his bass-heavy 2018 collaboration with The Chainsmokers, “Save Yourself.”
• “Bang,” with Shaquille O’Neal and Lil Jon, broke NGHTMRE into the world of rap collaborations. He’s since worked with A$AP Ferg, Gunna, Torey Lanez, and others.
