About

NGHTMRE

NGHTMRE's ascent to the upper echelons of dance music stardom has been nothing short of dream-like. His meticulous production and pulsating performances have cemented him as both a festival mainstay and dance music tastemaker. His collaborations with Zeds Dead, Dillon Francis, Flux Pavilion and SLANDER have catapulted him across the world, from Tomorrowland in Belgium to World DJ Fest in Seoul.

NGHTMRE burst onto the scene in 2015, when Skrillex dropped his unreleased single "Street" on the main stage at Ultra Music Festival – electronic music's premiere event. That record would go on to be one of the biggest trap songs of the summer and lead Tyler Marenyi to become the darling of Diplo's Mad Decent imprint, an international festival superstar, and a resident DJ at Las Vegas's famed Hakkasan.

Tyler then embarked on a near sell-out, thirty-four city "Gud Vibrations" US bus tour with best friends Derek and Scott of SLANDER. Their GV brand has seen exponential growth with a worldwide audience; it began with back to back sellout nights headlining the Hollywood Palladium, quickly followed by packing the NOS Events Center with 10,000 fans. The boys then took Gud Vibrations global with an Australia & New Zealand and Asia tours, a takeover of Red Rocks amphitheater, and a Miami Boat Party during Miami Music Week. You can also hear their weekly Gud Vibrations radio show on Sirius XM's Diplo's Revolution, with both NGHTMRE and SLANDER hosting the show. Most notably, NGHTMRE and SLANDER took the plunge and launched Gud Vibrations as an official record label in late 2018, choosing up-and-comer WAVEDASH as their premiere artist with the release of the label's first track, “Deathwish.”

NGHTMRE's resume hosts a slew of successful music and star-studded collaborations, including his explorative "Magic Hour" EP with Pell, the trippy "Another Dimension" with Dillon Francis, "Save Yourself" with the Chainsmokers, "Like That" with Big Gigantic and "TTM" with Whiz Khalifa and PnB Rock. His remixes of Ekali and ZHU's "Blame" and Flosstradamus ft. Smokepurpp's "MVP” are equally as compelling, as if everything NGHTMRE touches conducts electricity. His well- deserved reputation as a top-notch live performer has led to a packed tour schedule that included the main stage at EDC Las Vegas, Billboard Hot 100 Fest, Hakkasan Las Vegas residency, Lollapalooza (Chicago, Paris, Berlin), Electric Zoo, Mysteryland, Creamfields, Amnesia Ibiza, Space Ibiza, Cream Ibiza, Shambhala, Middlelands, Coachella, Zouk, Ultra Music Festival, Holy Ship!, and Tomorrowland. Tyler rounded out 2018 with his "NGHTMRE Before Xmas" tour, which sold out its shows in both San Francisco and Los Angeles for 8,500 and 6,300 people, respectively. Look out for what's next from this ace of bass as he surges full speed ahead into 2019.

Testimonials

I first went to WMC ’87, the year I started Big Beat. It was an incredibly inspiring congregation of indie labels, DJs, artists, songwriters, producers and dance music lovers dedicated to breaking and discovering new music. WMC has been instrumental in furthering the dance and electronic cause; keeping the community connected, vital and relevant, and serving as an amazing springboard for talent. It’s a fantastic crucible for the future of dance music. Long may it live.


Craig Kallman

CEO & Co-Chairman Atlantic Records, Founder Big Beat Records

Before there was Ultra Music Festival, there was The Winter Music Conference, the annual coming together of the dance music tribes. Miami in March is a fundamental place to be from a business perspective, and has always given me endless opportunities for discovering new partnerships and talent. WMC brings together the dance music industry and surrounding culture like no other event in America. I’ve been attending WMC for nearly 20 years, and I’m very much looking forward to experiencing its evolution in 2019.


Matt Colon

Partner/founder, Deckstar Artist Management

“Winter Music Conference is my ground zero. It has always provided the perfect storm of opportunity and excitement for up and coming artists, including myself back in 2003, where I first caught a glimpse of how it felt to have an audience respond to my work. Over the years, I’ve always made it a point to have WMC in my calendar because that’s the spot where everyone congregates and you can feel it in the air. Creativity, brother and sisterhood, FUN and most of all the chance to come together as a community and celebrate the reason we are all here—the music.”

DJ/Producer

WMC is and has always been the lifeblood of the dance music scene. Never missed a year since ’96, I can’t imagine Amsterdam Dance Event or Ibiza Music Summit existing without the blueprint that WMC originated. Seeing this revived is absolutely essential to reunifying the North American scene surrounding electronic music and its fringes.
