As it stands right now, Netsky is a household name across the population of dance music lovers across the globe. For us, he solidified a standing place as one of our favorite producers through a continuing body of impressive work, inventive and engaging live performances, and for helping introduce a younger group of American festival goers to one of our favorite electronic genres.
As older members of the dance community, we fondly look back on the days where drum ‘n’ bass had its own stage, boasting an array of blazing fast break beats, rolling basslines, and soaring synths and vocals. Somehow, through the years, that stage slowly disappeared, giving way to more bass-heavy varieties of DJs, leaving an entire generation without this storied portion of dance music.
While there are other notable Producers and DJs who contribute to bringing DnB back to the forefront of the scene, we’re particularly enamored with our latest Resident Artist. His style is instantly recognizable, causing fans to immediately say his name when tracks like “Rio,” “Running Low,” or “Eyes Closed” come on. Both of his albums can be enjoyed start-to-finish, and have been enjoyed in such a fashion here at TMN HQ many times over. We would be remiss if we didn’t mention his live performance, which brings a much-appreciated approach to dance music to those that were lucky enough to buy a ticket.
Simply put – this may be the most excited we’ve ever been about a Resident Artist. Make sure to tune in all month long to get a first look at some exclusive content. And, if that isn’t enough, you can expect a single from his new album later this month. Until then, enjoy this collection of some of our favorite Netsky tunes.
