NGHTMRE Gives a Heavy-Hitting Remix to Ekali & ZHU's "Blame" Out on OWSLA/Atlantic Records

Ekali and ZHU's bold collaboration "Blame" receives a hard-hitting remix by none other than NGHTMRE, the notorious maestro behind recently released anthems like "Another Dimension" (with Dillon Francis) "TTM" (with PnB Rock & Wiz Khalifa)" and rap & soul-infused "No Coming Down" (featuring Alex Wiley & Sky Montique). NGHTMRE preserves the original's scintillating melodies and ZHU's velvety vocals, but amps the track up with a percussive crescendo and reverberating basslines.

[NEWS] 5 Reasons Why You Must Go to Eric Prydz's EPIC 4.0

[VERSUS] Lane 8 ft. Solomon Grey- Hot As You Want (Emily vs. Kavi Dual Review)

Here at The Sights and Sounds we don’t always agree on music. Just like you and your friends.

Our senior editor, Kavi, and our Dance Music/Festival correspondent Emily. The writers will give a ‘nay’ (negative) or a ‘yay’ positive review and rank the song on scale of 1-10.
