NGHTMRE has released his Guns For Hire Remix of Charlie Darker's tune. This track is so grimy and dirty - I absolutely love it! Charlie Darker - Guns For Hire (NGHTMRE Remix) (FREE DOWNLOAD) NGHTMRE's description of the song on Soundcloud is "Here is my official remix for Charlie Darker. As soon as I heard this original track I knew how I wanted this remix to sound. I really hope you guys enjoy it!!!" I got to ask NGHTMRE some questions about the track and genres: OTB: What went into remixing "Guns For Hire?" NGHTMRE: Well as soon as I heard the track I knew how I wanted it to sound in my head. I got the stems at 10 or 11 at night and stayed up all that night and produced/arranged the entire remix in probably 5 or 6 hours. Definitely went back to the track MANY times to make changes to the mix down though. Really happy with how it turn out! OTB: What is your opinion on genres? NGHTMRE: I kind of feel like waste of energy to be categorizing and sub-categorizing music these days. It's obviously necessary sometimes and its definitely a good way to create a brand, but It seems to do nothing but cause arguments and limit the growth of innovative sounds. Just my opinion. OTB: The sound on your Guns For Hire remix is so unique, what would you call it if you had to give it a name? NGHTMRE: Again I'm not one to label anything, my "sound" comes from years of listening to all different types of music like jazz, hip-hop, alternative and classic rock, house, dubstep, and much more. Each has a little bit of influence in what I make and it comes out naturally when I write. I just try to make music thats sounds great in a club, is melodically interesting, and has something in it that you've never heard before. There you have it. This track is PURE FIRE! It just makes me want to bang my head! If you haven't heard of NGHTMRE before I really suggest you check out his other tracks because I love his sound!
