Netsky “2” takes the 23 year old’s signature sound and brings in live influences with elements of electro-house and dubstep alongside the euphoric, hands-in-the-air D+B he has become known for. Across the 14-track selection there are a number of featured vocalists, from names we know and love such as Dynamite MC and Diane Charlemagne to international talents like million selling Belgian soul/funk singer/songwriter Selah Sue, The Times’ “female artist to watch”, Bridgette Amofah and Philly rapper Jimmy Jams. Kicking off with a storming intro in “Love Has Gone” the album progresses through future anthems like “The Whistle Song” and “Wanna Die For You”. Previously released singles “Give & Take” and “Come Alive” are all live band influences and catchy vocal hooks, whilst old skool piano chiming “Get Away From Here” is classic Netsky with a twist, with lush vocals courtesy of Selah Sue. Elsewhere, “911” injects a bit of robo-electro-house and then there’s the streetwise patter of hip-hop charged drama in “Squad Up”. “When Darkness Falls” is late night D+B soul lushness, whilst “Detonate” is an incendiary heavy hitter and final track “Drawing Straws” provides a classy outro. Challenging the “difficult second album” concept with a genre-spanning panorama of uplifting melodies and exciting new tunes, Netsky - “2” reaffirms once more the young producer truly is one of Belgium’s premium exports.
