A powerhouse collaboration between two electronic heavyweights, Galantis and NGHTMRE band together to unveil “Tu Tu Tu (That’s Why We)” Friday, September 25 via Ultra Music.
Galantis, a collaborative project led by Christian Karlsson, is a certified visionary in modern dance music. The chart topping and genre-bending project can be heard on dance floors globally. At the heels of its celebrated single “Pretty Please” with Jackson Wang, which trended #18 on YouTube globally over its debut weekend, Galantis keeps its pace steady with the help of the ever-evolving NGHTMRE. Still basking in the glow of his aptly titled single “Nuclear Bass Face” with Subtronics and Boogie T, NGHTMRE lends his fluid and intense production style to Galantis to successfully execute “Tu Tu Tu.”
“Galantis has been an inspiration to me for years. I’ve looked up to those guys since the Miike Snow and Style of Eye days. Writing “Tu Tu Tu” with them was a really special experience and something a little different for both of us!” – NGHTMRE
“I‘ve been a big fan of NGHTMRE for a long time, and Tyler even did a remix of my song “Hunter”, so finally being able to get into the studio with him was inspiring. The pandemic gave us more time together than we normally would have, and allowed us to really be creative. I think the end result is something timeless and unique…and we may have made more music together, so keep your eyes out” – Galantis
Although Galantis and NGHTMRE come from opposing electronic subgenres, this deep cut is a righteous juxtaposition. Featuring the vocal work of Liam O’Donnell, “Tu Tu Tu” boasts an undeniably catchy and unwavering beat that ultimately shotguns the track into his funky final form. Released with a topical, colorful, and appropriately zealous music video that details the all-too-familiar burden of Zoom meetings and DIY at-home-raves, “Tu Tu Tu” is effortlessly accessible. As Galantis and NGHTMRE continue challenging, refining, and mastering their solo projects, their collaborative triumph is relentlessly formidable. Watch this space for the unveiling of the single and music video Friday, September 25.
