I know some of you might not like drum n bass music, but as usual, i just want to post anything i liked here, and this is what i'm very in to lately. A drum n bass new uprising musician from Belgium, known as Netsky. At the first, i just known this 21-year-old for his track at "This Is Drum & Bass" album, but lately i always hear his name mentioned on every podcast and dnb radio out there. His music was a liquid type of drum n bass tunes, but still dropping big and massive bass which is very danceable. The BIG thing is, he just signed in to Hospital Records, one of the biggest drum n bass label in the UK. As Hospital says:
Rarely have we seen someone rise through the ranks this quickly, and having a Belgian passport doesn't often turn D+B heads, so you can be sure it's his tunes which do the talking. In less than 12 months Netsky has secured releases on some of the biggest names in the scene, Liq-Weed Ganja, Spearhead and Talkin Beatz gained DJ support from the likes of Friction, Hype and Fabio and also earned a nomination as "Best Upcoming Producer" within just months of his first release at the Drum + Bass Arena Awards. With his blend of uplifting , melancholic melodies and heavy dancefloor bass + beats it wasn't long before Netsky was well on the radar of London Elektricity and High Contrast. "Smile" made it onto Hospitality's "This Is Drum + Bass". Expect a sneaky peak at what Netsky has instore for hospital on Logistics' Hospital Mix 8 due out early 2010.Sounds great, eh? Check out his tune here via Soundcloud or his MySpace or his LastFm. And oh yeah, he's that kind and warm too, been chat with him yesterday :)
Firmly reserving a seat at D+B's top table, Netsky has signed exclusively to Hospital. With his unique sound now to be bolstered by Hospital's A+R team, big things are expected for Belgium's premium D+B export.
