RADAR: NETSKY Is A Name To Remember For 2019.
NETSKY quietly emerged as not only Belgium’s hottest musical export this decade, but also as a tried-and-true electronic music trendsetter.
NETSKY is a name to remember, especially for this year 2019. Originally from Belgium, the young producer is paving for himself, a very remarkable path especially by revealing captivating sonorities and making very impressive collaborations with artists like KYLE, Toulouse, etc. It was actually through some of his impressive collaborations that we discovered NETSKY. One track in particular drawn our attention: « Big Hearts », featuring KYLE and Stargate. The song is a suave blend between Soul, R&B and Electronic music. Indeed, infused with catchy notes, the composition has all it takes to be massive hit song. Beside, it already totalizes about 1 million streams on Spotify, which means that people are loving it.
Also, note that, « Big Heart » is a single off the EP project « Abbot Kinney » which counts a total of four amazing tracks. The project was unveiled last December 14th, and two particular songs are doing pretty well on Spotify — it’s of course ‘Big Heart’ and ‘Nobody (Feat. Stargate). There are actually three tracks that features Stargate, because NETSKY described working with Stargate as ‘’ An Amazing Experience’’. He said:
— “Collaborating with Stargate in their incredible studio was an amazing experience, it's not far from Abbot Kinney Blvd and that area inspired so much of this music. It is my absolute favorite spot in LA and felt like the perfect title for this EP, matching the vibes we all felt while in the studio during that time. Working with Stargate helped open me sonically to new sounds I had never tried. This is just a taste of what’s to come, I’m excited to share more with you in the new year!”—
More About NETSKY
NETSKY quietly emerged as not only Belgium’s hottest musical export this decade, but also as a tried-and-true electronic music trendsetter. Beyond standout sets at Coachella, Glastonbury, Pukkelpop, and beyond, he drew a capacity crowd of 18,000 in 2017 in Antwerp’s Sportpaleis Arena. He envisioned and ignited “Netsky & Friends” as an extension of his creative influence, curating and hosting a stage at Tomorrowland and descending on numerous other markets throughout 2018 and beyond. Among countless awards, he became the highest ranking drum ‘n’ bass DJ in the coveted DJ Mag Top 100 in addition to making history as “the youngest ever recipient of the Flemish Culture Award for Music.” Amidst a catalog of hits, his smash “Rio” attracted a feature from hip-hop titan Mackelmore on the “Rio Remix”—which would be noted as an unofficial Olympics 2016 anthem. Appropriately, he served as the official artist ambassador for the Belgian Olympic team. Everyone from Ed Sheeran and Dua Lipa to Jack Ü has also sought him out for remixes. However, he truly goes worldwide in partnership with Republic Records and Casablanca Records, and the upcoming release of Palmtrees & Powerlines.
