NGHTMRE taps KLAXX for second debut album single, ‘The One’
It’s full steam ahead for the rollout of NGHTMRE‘s debut album. The sophomore single from the upcoming LP comes in the form of “The One,” which gets an assist from fellow Southern Californian KLAXX. It’s not the first time that the two producers have come together; that honor belongs to 2021’s “Falling,” distributed via NGHTMRE and SLANDER‘s Gud Vibrations label. And considering that KLAXX has cited NGHTMRE as “one of [his] first inspirations” in the dance/electronic domain, their continued partnership couldn’t be any more wholesome.
On “The One,” both producers can be found flexing their production depth on the tune, which is decidedly lighter and more upbeat than “Falling,” laden with heavy trap- and bass-infused beats. The Lowly-backed single is a melodic festival anthem ripe to be sung in the summer sun and KLAXX knows it, imploring fans to “memorize the lyrics, and sing it at the top of your lungs.”
“The One” comes on the heels of NGHTMRE and SLANDER’s long-time ID “Fall Into Me” featuring Dancing Astronaut Supernova Dylan Matthew, premiered during NGHTMRE’s performance at Gud Vibrations’ Virtual Vibes Music Festival in October 2020.
Both NGHTMRE and KLAXX are avid skateboarders and wanted to incorporate this shared interest in their latest collaboration. In an Instagram post, they outlined a collaborative video effort with their fans that will appear on their Spotify canvas.
