Renowned producer NGHTMRE and acclaimed artist Pell join the forces of bass music and hip-hop in their new collaborative “Magic Hour” EP, released on Diplo‘s Mad Decent. Featuring two tracks, “Swiss” and “Lights Low,” the EP crosses both genres and moods, combining sensual basslines and provocative lyrics in the bedroom-ready “Lights Low” and then lightening the mood with the feel-good, party-ready vibes of “Swiss.”
“Magic Hour” is on trend with the recent movement of fusing bass music and hip-hop, but NGHTMRE and Pell aren’t two that create cookie-cutter music – the tracks are crafted with the sophistication and unique musical soundscapes of artists who are masters at their craft. To take the immersion one step further, NGHTMRE and Pell filmed a two-part music video for the “Magic Hour” EP in Japan, where the vivid scenery of the rural pink moss blooms and the neon lights of Tokyo set a stunning backdrop for the EP’s different styles. Through a lens of vibrant, glowing colors and trippy simulations, the video follows Pell, accompanied by NGHTMRE, through a metaphorical transformation to tell the story of ambition, sacrifice, and the duality of life.
