NGHTMRE & Shaq O’Neal & Lil Jon – ‘BANG’

Yes you’re right! That’s really Shaq in this video for LA based DJ NGHTMRE, along with Atlanta crunk legend, Lil Jon. All three give it everything they’ve got in ‘BANG’, with a video which showcases – a little tongue in cheek it must be said – a day in the life of a touring DJ.

Scratching off his to-do list, which includes such items as “Wake up Shaq” (achieved by jumping on him in his bed) and “Headbanging practice (which leaves Shaq in a towel neckbrace), NGHTMRE goes through his day to day tasks, and ensures his party intentions are achieved. We see all three taking to the stage, the crowd going wild, and who can blame them? It’s a hard-rocking crunky track which will have you bouncing about the room, and wondering how you can be besties with Shaq yourself.

NGHTMRE is an expert when it comes to electro house and bass music on his singles with Flux Pavilion, Dillon Francis, and The Chainsmokers. But, his fans know that there’s always been a rougher side to his aesthetic – one which draws on aggressive dubstep and the bruising production on wild-eyed Southern hip-hop bangers.
