Apparently Netsky, or Boris Daenen, was too busy for DJ Mag’s interview. He’s certainly been keeping active in 2015, with gigs at Amnesia, Ibiza (for Together), at UMF in Miami and Tomorrowland Brazil just for starters. He’s also had the honour of remixing Jack Ü’s mega hit ‘Take Ü There’, and recently unleashed new single ‘Rio’ featuring the improbably named Digital Farm Animals.
His glossy, ultra-clean take on drum & bass has made him an unlikely regular appearance in the Top 100 DJs poll. Netsky’s got a pop sensibility that chimes with the youthful EDM audience.
Already two albums deep into his career, both appearing on accessible d&b label Hospital, he’s recorded with Beth Ditto and rising producer Metrik, and now finds himself playing the sort of stadium affairs normally reserved for the EDM big dogs. Those Stateside gigs for Mad Decent and Ultra are obviously paying off.
