Arguably the hottest property of Drum & Bass’s iconic Hospital Records, Belgian import Netsky follows up his critically acclaimed eponymous album with ‘2‘, an ambitious and evolved production from an artist who’s already offered so much to the D&B scene.
The talented 23 year-old, born Boris Daenen, has provided teasers and snippets of tracks for several months now, with the unsurprising fear amongst many fans being the dreaded “sophomore slump”. Yet where the début effort entitled ‘Netsky‘ gained unrivalled success within Drum & Bass charts and mainstream audiences alike, the unmistakeable melodic feel is continued strongly with 2. But as an alternating 60 minutes worth of listening, it’d be disingenuous to say that ‘2‘ is hit after hit. Tracks such as “911” or the closer “Drawing Straws” stand out as low points of the album, simply because they lack that distinct & unique Netsky feel. Call it ridiculous, call it silly – but given his début album, previous releases & 2 a listen
