Rio, Last year’s global summer time anthem, was not only a fun tribute to one of the world’s most beautiful holiday destinations it was the ultimate example of the unbreakable spirt of Drum and Bass, a genre that has survived every new trend over the past twenty years and has emerged even stronger with new ideas, innovators and audience.
The brains behind the single, Belgian producer Netsky, is back with his third album unsurprisingly called 3. For those out of the loop (or who don’t have Rio on every exercise playlist) Netsky, whose real name is Boris Daenen has been making his mark on the electronic scene since 2009 and was cited was one of the “Best Upcoming Producers” at the Drum + Bass Arena Awards.
With his third record Netsky has set his sights on world domination and has created a sparkling new album packed with radio friendly hits that will surely establish him not only as a premier Drum and Bass DJ and producer but as a masterful pop music maven. On 3, expect collaborations with Digital Farm animals (who feature on Rio), Emeli Sandé and charming prince tribute (created days before the superstar’s passing) with electro-funk aficionado’s Chromeo.
The album arrives digitally and as an Apple music exclusive on the 3rd of June.
