Chart-topping Drum & Bass god Netsky and New Zealand heavyweight Montell2099 team up for an atmospheric riot of a club essential ‘Broken’ through 541 (N.E.W.S)
The release follows their first collaboration Mixed Emotions, taken from Netsky’s fourth studio album Second Nature, which was released on Hospital Records in 2020. The pair met a few years ago, during Netsky’s annual pilgrimage to New Zealand, and friendship has blossomed into collaborations and appearing on stages together across the globe.
Since signing to London Elektricity’s renowned Hospital Records in 2009, internationally renowned electronic star Netsky has spent a decade becoming a household name.
The youngest ever recipient of the Flemish Culture Award for Music and highest ranking Drum & Bass DJ as voted by the DJ Mag Top 100, the Belgian native is an acclaimed musician and producer, with 4 studio albums under his belt; collaborations with David Guetta, Lil Wayne, Aloe Blacc, Emeli Sande, Rudimental and Sub Focus and huge remixes for the likes of Ed Sheeran, Dua Lipa, Swedish House Mafia, Jessie J, and Miike Snow.
The producer’s refreshing liquid drum n bass style has seen him achieve chart success, whilst building an award winning live show and performing at festivals around the world including Coachella, Glastonbury, and Pukkelpop.
Despite the world being in the throes of the Coronavirus pandemic last year, Netsky brought his huge Glasshouse show to New Zealand, the only country in the world that had managed to keep covid out and where live shows were still happening. These shows were a huge success and the DJ heavyweight is bringing the Glasshouse show to Printworks (London) and Lotto Arena in Netsky’s hometown Antwerp this April.
Meanwhile, Montell2099 punctuates an already explosive career with the dynamic electronic bass music style on Broken that led to his signing to electronic genius RL Grime’s coveted label Sable Valley. He’s delivered headline slots on NZ’s biggest festival stages, recently returned from a North American Tour with RL Grime, become the first Kiwi to be booked for stages at EDC and Tomorrowland, and been enlisted for works by Lorde, CharliXCX, Diplo, Trippie Redd and more.
Now releasing on 541 (N.E.W.S), Netsky and Montell2099 join forces for the captivating new single, ‘Broken’. Featuring entrancing melodies, hypnotic vocals, and their signature pumping basslines, ‘Broken’ is a must have at festivals and club nights alike.
