NGHTMRE and SLANDER have produced numerous hit tracks over the past few years, including “Gud Vibrations” in 2016, which eventually led to the creation of their record label, aptly named, Gud Vibrations. With both artists seen as festival mainstays, it comes as no surprise that they have taken over various festival stages around the world including Ultra and EDC and embarked on their own global tours.
“Fall Into Me” is a true festival classic, incorporating signature elements from each artist, including NGHTMRE’s meticulous production skills and SLANDER’s distinctive sounds with the juxtaposition between peaceful piano chords and melodic bass in the background. Adding to this, the powerful music video takes the audience through a peculiar journey of a man and his perplexing dream of a woman. The unique 2D animation style brings out the retrospective context with constant scene change to showcase flashbacks of the dream. Perplexing at first, the ambiguity of the characters’ relationship gradually unfolds itself as the story releases little hints of explanation as it progresses. With each scene change matching the beats of the music perfectly, the music video is flawlessly assimilated with the music. Throughout the scene, the theme of “fall into me” is also shown both literally and figuratively as both characters fall into space repeatedly and spark chemistry whenever their eyes meet. Altogether, this exquisite production highlights the novelty, evocative, and mysterious elements NGHTMRE and SLANDER’s music embodies.
NGHTMRE performed twice at Ultra Music Festival 2022 and will headline his ‘NGHTMRE: INTO THE DRMVRSE’ performance at the iconic Red Rocks Amphitheater April 15 in Morrison, Colorado with support from Kill The Noise, Dimension, Knock2, and Nitepunk.

The partnership between Dylan Matthew and SLANDER became a worldwide phenomena in 2020 with the remix release of his original acoustic soundtrack “Love is Gone,” racking up more than 17 million views on YouTube and millions of streams on Spotify. However, the American singer had yet to work with the iconic productions created by NGHTMRE, endlessly teasing his fans on social media up to the track’s release date with small previews of the song. This collaboration is guaranteed to highlight each artists’ signatures as well as the extraordinary, newfound relationship between the three. Along with “Fall Into Me,” the singer-songwriter is currently wrapping up his fifth EP, which will be releasing later this year, as well as developing a joint album and tour with SLANDER. With his ability to perform on a variety of different levels and his vocals capturing the attention of millions, Matthew has become one of the most watched artists of the year.
