Undoubtedly one of the greatest success stories drum & bass had to tell in 2015 was Netsky, and this year looks set to be even bigger. NETSKY aka, Boris Daenen, releases ‘Higher’, a collaboration with US bass megastar and OWSLA mainstay Jauz, as he gears up for the release of his third album and a huge summer.

The single is taken from Netsky’s highly anticipated upcoming third studio album, ‘3’ due to be released everywhere on 10th June. ‘Higher’ is already receiving a wealth of specialist radio support from the likes of Annie Mac, Danny Howard and Mistajam, as well as causing a stir in the blog world, having almost surpassed 1 million SoundCloud plays in 3 weeks.

2015 saw Netsky release the first taste of brand new album ‘3’ with festival favourite, ‘Rio’. The Brazilian inspired drum & bass track was a hit with specialist and daytime radio alike and was heard everywhere from underground raves, to the soundtrack for London’s New Year’s Eve fireworks display. The arrival of ‘3’ coincides with the start of a busy festival season for Netsky as he brings his critically acclaimed live show to Glastonbury, Reading and Leeds, SW4, Dour and Panorama Festival amongst many others.

The new album, his third studio offering, is a perfectly executed balancing act between Netsky’s roots in dance music and drum & bass, and blissfully happy, hook laden, intelligent pop, house, funk and electronica, littered with some incredible collaborations and special guests, including Emeli Sandé, Chromeo, Saint Raymond, Jauz and more.

From his signing to the legendary Hospital Records back in 2009 Netsky’s star has been rising. His infamous self-titled debut album ‘Netsky’ propelled the talented young producer from Antwerp to become one of the most talked about and talented names within the electronic music world and when his second album ‘2’ was released (2012) it immediately hit the No. 1 spot in the official Belgium charts and the Top 30 in the official UK albums chart, quickly going on to achieve platinum status. His trademark sound, an explosive fusion of stirring vocals with a unique and soulful take on the drum & bass sound has earned him respect and support from across the industry, an extensive, dedicated global fan base and numerous accolades, including being the highest placed drum & bass artist in DJ Mag’s 2015 ‘Top 100 DJ’s’ poll.

The Belgian superstar will continue his global showing of ‘3’ through its release date and beyond with a huge summer of shows scheduled for his live band, a highly acclaimed live show which continues to push the boundaries that define how electronic music can be experienced. Hailed by artists from within the genre as “the best live show in electronic music”, Netsky’s Live band has already completed numerous sold out tours around the world along with countless international headline appearances at festivals such as Pukkelpop, Reading & Leeds, Ultra Music Festival and Coachella.

2016 is set to be the year Netsky becomes not just one of the most recognized names in electronic music, but music everywhere, all around the world.
