Dillon Francis & NGHTMRE’s new track, “Need You,” is going to be one of the hits of the year, undoubtedly. Teaming up one of the top producers right now with one of the top rising producers was already a recipe for success, but combine that and throw in electrified moombah rhythms and an incredible music video, you’ve got a stew going.
But the two weren’t done yet – in addition to the collaborative track and music video, Dillon & NGHTMRE were also hosting a joint “Ask Me Anything” on reddit, as well as live streaming it via Facebook. While it was supposed to be a joint AMA, most of the questions were understandably directed toward Dillon, but we’ll try to include both here.
The thread has received over 1500 comments since its inception yesterday, so let’s take a look at what we’ve got.
It was super easy to get porn star Sophie Dee to cameo in Dillon’s video for “When We Were Young.”
Dillon: “we just contacted her management it was super easy”
Will either Dillon Francis or NGHTMRE be at EDCLV?
“We’re not allowed to say.” Bummer, but take from that what you will.
NGHTMRE’s alias is based off his real name, Tyler Marenyi. That’s why there’s still a vowel at the end.
Dillon Francis is usually the one reaching out to other artists to do remixes.
Big D Francis: Your remix game is nutty. They’re crazy good. How often is it the artist contacting you about remixing the song verses you just deciding “let’s fuck this song up”?
D: 90% of the time its me asking to remix the song for the artist…
The desire for a Slander + NGHTMRE “Bass House Mafia” is peaking.
N: We’ve definitely thought a lot about it already. You guys will just have to wait and see!
Dillon Francis & NGHTMRE reveal their favorite inflatable pool toy.
They describe their weirdest interaction with a fan.
Dillon: Some girl came up behind me and grabbed my ass. That’s molestation right there, and i didn’t want it.
NGHTMRE: I had random guy at the venue I was djing at in Mackay, Australia pull out a tooth right in front of me after my set.
Neither of them have any compassion for anyone who hasn’t figured out Marshmello’s identity.
“you guys should know this by now”
As could be expected of an AMA with Dillon & NGHTMRE, some of the questions are appropriately weird.
Liam_Inkuras: Would you rather be EDC Pickle lost in the crowd, a Taco without meat, or Luke Skywalker’s dismembered hand?
D: edc pickle
N: edc pickle as well
Their favorite venues in LA –
D: Probably Hard Summer or Shrine
N: Avalon! Playing palladium July 1 and 2
We finally get some news about Dillon’s collabs with Drezo, GTA and Alesso, but it’s not any more enlightening.
D: Hit them about it because they’re the ones who are going to be releasing it not me! The songs are pretty much done.
NGHTMRE also has some exciting collabs coming up.
N: Hey man, those two collabs are both finished so just waiting for the release! Loudpvck collab is called “Click Clack” and will be released with OWSLA, Flux collab is called “Feel Your Love” and will be released on Circus.
