Thursday Throwdown ft. NGHTMRE

AS Program Board Presents… Tuesday Throwdown ft. NGHTMRE on May 5th, 2020 at 8:00 PM.
This event is free and closed to UCSB students.

Born Tyler Marenyi, NGHTMRE is known for producing intense, bass-driven dance music and DJ performances that are so intensely physical, sweat pours as he headbangs.
Offfstage, he’s a different man. Marenyi is super soft-spoken with a charming Southern flair. Raised in Raleigh, North Carolina, Marenyi had acquired a finance degree before deciding to make the move to LA to pursue music.
It was a gamble that wound up paying off—the fresh talent made his festival debut at EDC Las Vegas in 2015, and he hasn’t left the circuit since. NGHTMRE goes on to play at other festivals such as Coachella in 2017, and he embarked on a US bus tour for “Gud Vibrations” which nearly sold out.
With an EP featuring Mad Decent, his songs have been repped by the likes of Skrillex and Dillon Francis. Most notably, his collaboration with SLANDER led to the launch of their own official record label in 2018.
Despite the fame, Marenyi is still very much “aw, shucks,” with a constant self-aware smile that clings to the corners of his lips.
