Netsky - "Netsky 2"
Boris Daenen, a 23-year-old producer from Edegem, is Belgium’s most wanted export product when it comes to dance.
Under the moniker Netsky he signed with the London-based Hospital Records, travels the world DJing and just showcased his first live set during two sold-out AB gigs and at the Werchter festival. Soon he will be headlining Pukkelpop, but first there’s a second album, on which he’s mixing dark and fast drum’n’bass grooves with playful and melodic hands-in-the-air synths. There’s also enough proof that he doesn’t need these euphoric rave-influenced anthems to hypnotise and give energy boosts, including interesting sidesteps to hip hop and dubstep, and the right guest vocalists. Get Away From Here, a bumping trip featuring Selah Sue, is a highlight.
