Netsky - Mixed Emotions (feat. Montell2099)
Following on from his widely celebrated return to drum & bass, and Hospital Records, with ‘I See The Future In Your Eyes’, Netsky brings his classic liquid sound into 2020 on his latest release ‘Mixed Emotions’ (feat. Montell2099), giving a further look into what we can expect from his forthcoming album ‘Second Nature’. Teaming up with New Zealand based prodigy Montell2099 who has worked with the likes of Diplo, 21 Savage, Lil Wayne and Mr. Carmack, future bass meets Netsky’s signature soulful groove on ‘Mixed Emotions’. Solemn pad hits and captivating vocals from the offset immediately set the track up to be a euphoria-tinted drum & bass anthem which combines a multitude of sounds from the dance music spectrum. Potent synth plucks perform an irresistible melody which breathes an air of Netsky and Montell2099’s musical mastery, swiftly followed by a submerging reese bass and striking drums.
With the music doing the talking, it’s clear that Netsky’s return to drum & bass has rippled throughout the world of electronic music and beyond. ‘I See The Future In Your Eyes’, his first drum & bass record in five years, received widespread support from respected industry tastemakers including Annie Mac, Zane Lowe, Nick Grimshaw, MistaJam, Rene LaVice, Hybrid Minds, Alice Levine and even New Zealand’s Prime Minister Jacinda Arden, as well as clocking up well over 1 million streams in its first few weeks. With ‘Mixed Emotions (feat. Montell2099)’ as a follow up, and news of an album further down the line, Netsky is giving a clear indication of what’s yet to come and this is shaping up to be one of the most exciting projects drum & bass has seen for some time. A truly iconic artist for all manner of drum & bass fanatics across the globe, the unprecedented way that Netsky’s music resonates with audiences has never been matched. Having elevated himself to legendary status through tracks such as Pirate Bay, Iron Heart, Come Alive, Rio, Puppy, I Refuse and Drawing Straws, he released 2 D+B LPs during his tenure at Hospital Records and has remixed the likes of Ed Sheeran, Rusko, Jessie J, Plan B, Dua Lipa, Swedish House Mafia and countless more.
