NGHTMRE – ‘Stronger‘ – Earlier this year in march, dance producer NGHTMRE and rising hip-hop artist A-F-R-O teamed up with Honda and Uproxx to create a track and record it directly to vinyl. Over two days, they wrote and recorded ‘Stronger‘ and ‘Annihilation‘ at the historic Fairfax Studios, where acts like Nirvana, Fleetwood Mac, and Weezer have all pressed tracks to wax there.
NGHTMRE arranged the music and helped conduct a session band full of live guitar, bass, drums, keys, cello, and a muted trumpet—all while 18 year old A-F-R-O laid down his lines over the live performers. Using a yellow pad of paper full of scratches and scribbles that were written within the past 24 hours, the young rhymer rapped some impressive lines way beyond his years. After four takes and just under two hours of recording ‘Stronger‘ straight to lacquer vinyl, the track finally was completed.
