Nero’s BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix

14 Nov

Nero, a duo from the United Kingdom, first started making ground in the Drum and Bass and Dubstep scenes, incorporating both styles in their sets. In 2006, they gained some exposure with their “Requiem EP” on Formation Records which received support from Drum and Bass artist, High Contrast. Today, Nero is more well known for their consistent high quality Dubstep releases. I was lucky enough to attend their first show ever in the United States last Spring at the Roxy in Hollywood. They recently won the 2010 Beatport awards for best Dubstep Act and Best Dubstep Track for “Act Like You Know”. I always like to see artist grow and progress and Nero does just that as heard in their new Essential Mix, not only incorporating Drum and Bass and Dubstep into their sets, but also some Electro House. Nero is currently working on their debut album signed exclusively to Chase & Status’ label MTA. Definitely something to keep an eye out for in the future, but for now here is their massive 2 hour BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix.

If you are not familiar with Nero, I’d highly suggest you take these…

    Nero is legit. This is the best essential mix of the year. Great variety, killer samples and mixes. The age of just being a drum and bass producer is over, with Nero and Chase & Status being the current ones mastering it.
