Neither NGHTMRE nor Zhu need any introduction. Though sitting on opposite ends of the sonic spectrum, they have joined forces on the latest single, "Man's First Inhibition," featuring Kidd Keem, where their signature sounds blend into a rich sonic landscape
This is the theme song for enigmas of the mystical. The eerie synth sounds in the intro immediately lure the listeners into an interplanetary journey. A variety of ominous elements are let loose and writhing around the deep end as Zhu's own sultry vocals bewitch us. After the first drop, Pittsburgh rapper Kidd Keem comes in and cuts through the noise with a choppy, chime-filled top-line, deep rolling vocals, and brusque drum patterns. The track perfectly meshes NGHTMRE's mastery of bass sounds and Zhu's unique neon-noir production together.
NGHTMRE recently worked with A$AP Ferg on the supercharged "REDLIGHT." Colluding with Big Gigantic, Lil Jon, Shaq and many more in the past – the producer now adds ZHU to his repertoire of highly prolific collaborations, who is known for his recent joint efforts on tracks with Tame Impala and Sofi Tukker.
