Snails and NGHTMRE are two bass music producers whose rise to fame has been extraordinary to watch.

Both artists were relatively unknown just a few years ago, and now, are touring all over the world - from playing massive festivals to headlining club shows - collaborating with some of the biggest names in the game, and diving deeper into their distinct styles. That last part is what gave them their exponential breakthroughs into the electronic music world. Both artists have garnered attention and cultivated loyal ever-growing fan bases by focusing on creating a unique sound, which sets them apart from the plethora of producers trying to break through the mold in electronic music.

Today, the two burgeoning artists have finally released their first collaboration.

Only Want U” kicks off with an ethereal, emotive soundscape, heightened by smooth vocals from Akylla. As the mood changes and the pace picks up, the track shifts into high gear with an explosive drop that combines NGHTMRE and Snails’ styles perfectly. Seamlessly executed, the drop cohesively combines elements of future bass with NGHTMRE’s distinct trap sound and Snails’ characteristic left field “vomitstep”.
