Victor Niglio & Happy Colors- Jungle Bass (Preview) [TMN PREMIERE]

Victor Niglio & Happy Colors
Jungle Bass (Available June 5)

As we wind down our month of Jiggy with Mr. Victor Niglio, we’re admittedly ready to pour an ice cold beverage and get fully turnt up. We must warn you, you will experience similar symptons from his upcoming release, “Jungle Bass.”

Teaming up with Miami based Happy Colors, our Resident Artist for the Month of May has dialed up monster summer tune, rife with a dancy, big room melody, some wicked four to the floor bass hits, and a completely unexpected drop. It’s perfect for the club, a festival, a pool party, or even dancing around in your undies in your bedroom.

The only thing we want to apologize to you for is giving you a serious case of blue ears. While science has never proved that it’s an actual condition, we’re convinced it is after hearing this clip. Look for the full to be released June 5 on Ones To Watch / Mixmash.

Victor Niglio’s Top Five Songs [Resident Artist Exclusive]

As we continue on through our month of Niglio, we’re offered up a glimpse into what his top five songs are at this very moment. Most of these were pretty on point with what we expected from him, but one threw us for a little bit of a loop.

Take a listen through each and check out what he had to say about why he’s digging it.

I just found this track today through my promo email, and wow, this is truly remarkable. Gotta be one of the hardest trap tracks I’ve ever heard.
’Hell Trap’
What happens when you take a GTA style intro & break, mix it with a Deorro inspired drop, and give it loads of drugs? This. First time I heard this I spent an hour replaying the drop over and over.
’Ido B & Zooki – Yokozuna (FREE DOWNLOAD)’
Another track from the depth of my promo email; you’re not quite sure where this goes, but when that swung kick & stretched vocal sample hit, you don’t care.
’Naid Riot – RED KILLA’
Yup, another promo sent to me; how lucky I am that people send me stuff this high quality. What an incredible production. The melody on the drop is something straight out of a dream.
’Astronaut – Quantum (Enyo & Mario Ayuda Radio Edit)’
A lot of people don’t know, but I’m a huge reggae fan (I even listen to it while taking showers). It’s tough finding new quality reggae, especially given that 90% of my music time is spent on EDM sites & blogs. I mainly use Spotify to find new reggae, but I was lucky enough to stumble onto this masterpiece yesterday on Soundcloud. Enjoy!
’Steppin’ Out – Alborosie & David Hinds of Steel Pulse’

Exclusive Interview with Victor Niglio [TMN RESIDENT ARTIST]

As we continue our march through May, we’re delighted to bring you a one on one conversation with our favorite Philly-born Lothario. Check out what he had to say about bringing his family to his shows, what producers we should keep an eye on, and who slings up the best cheesesteak in town.

TMN: Hey Victor! Thank you for taking some time to chat with us today, and even more so, being our resident artist for the month of May. Let’s kick things off by talking about something we’ve noticed over the past few months. You actually bring your whole family out (grandma, mom, dad, aunts, etc) to your shows. This isn’t something you see everyday. What made you decide to bring the whole Niglio clan?

VN: It wasn’t really me deciding to bring them, it was them deciding they wanted to come! Kinda epic when your grandmom asks when she can come see your next show.

TMN: What was their reaction like?

VN:They all LOVE it. They have more fun than most people at the clubs, I’d say.

TMN: From Vlogs, to producer tips, to teaming up with clothing companies, you’ve always been very interactive with your fans. Talk to us about what inspires to to connect more.

VN: I used to be a fan of DJs before I was one, and seeing the slightest bit of interaction between DJ & fan was really the coolest thing to me as a fan. I’m so interactive because it’s what I would want if I was a fan of myself (lol what)

TMN: Alright, let’s head back to the beginning. You’re were classically trained on the piano as a child, and it wasn’t until you heard Bloody Beetroots that you wanted to make the switch. What was it about “Warp” that really caught your ear?

VN: Warp is pure energy. It’s one of those tracks you can show to someone who doesn’t have a clue, but they listen to it, tap their foot, and say ‘wow this is cool!’. So me, writing orchestral music in Logic, hearing warp for the first time, I’m tapping my foot and saying ‘wow, I want to make whatever this is!’

TMN: Speaking of those guys, they’re heavily rooted in hard rock/heavy metal. Do you have some of those same influences?

VN: Yea, I was totally into that scene. Alternative rock, heavy metal, grindcore. I was and still am a big fan of bands like Chelsea Grin, We Came As Romans, August Burns Red, Enter Shikari, and even stuff like The Killers and Say Anything, so the rock influence of ‘Warp’ totally helped grab the metal kid inside of me.

[Trap] Victor Niglio – Butt Dial Booty Call // Elvis

A long time ago, or a few years ago, before there were smart phones, we all had this issue which some of us refer to as “butt dialing” people. Raise your hands if your parents may still do this to you ::raising hand:: TMN favorite afro trap producer Victor Niglio decided to play a little on this with the release of his song “Butt Dial Booty Call”. This catchy trap mix has nice drums and beats along with the constant lyrics of butt dial booty call ringing throughout the whole song. It is humorous because we all used to butt dial people…or booty call people and say whoops, accidently butt dialed you at two in the morning, sorry! You didn’t fool anyone kids, not a one person.

Along with this song, Niglio released a song called “Elvis”. I am such a huge fan of The King and love this remix. The song starts with Elvis talking about his cars (if you don’t know, Elvis was an avid car collector), and Niglio adds in a bit of drums, some piano, some electronic beats and then drops Elvis voice to a deep, deep level. This is a fun song and I adore that an artist brought The King to the world of trap. Not every artist could do this well, but cheers Niglio.
