Nghtmre, North Carolina’s sensational trap and electronic music artist is bringing his signature sounds to the Aragon Ballroom!
Nghtmre (birth name Tyler Marenyi) is an electronic music producer who began his musical journey by experimenting with Garage Band in his Elon University dorm room. In an interview he explains how he got chose his stage name; “My nickname growing up was Tmare. When I started producing I just kind of adopted that name as an alias. Then when I moved to LA and finally got my music to the point where I felt it was strong enough, I decided to re-brand with a new name. Nightmare was just one of the only words with 'Tmare' in it, so I just abbreviated it so the T was in the middle (because my name is Tyler) and went with it!” He was heavily inspired by alternative rock, classic rock, and indie music and he cites Led Zeppelin, The Doors, Jimi Hendrix, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Arctic Monkeys, Muse, Modest Mouse, and Of Montreal as significant influences. His interest in music production was sparked when he heard Girl Talk (an American DJ who specializes in mashups and digital sampling). He released his eponymous debut album in March 2016 and it’s already received support from most of dance music’s elite artists.
