* The journey leading up to ‘3’ began last summer with the release of festival favourite, ‘Rio’. The Brazilian inspired track was a hit with specialist and daytime radio alike and was heard everywhere from underground raves, to muddy festival fields, to the soundtrack for BBC 1’s coverage of London’s New Year’s Eve fireworks display. It will also be used throughout this year as the soundtrack to Netsky’s role as official artist ambassador for the Belgian Olympics Team whom he will join in Rio De Janeiro during their Rio2016 campaign.
* To celebrate the announcement of the album, Netsky spoke to Zane Lowe exclusively on Beats 1, played through some of the album, and also gave him the exclusive first play of brand new track ‘Higher’, a collaboration with US bass megastar and OWSLA mainstay Jauz. When fans pre-order the album, they will receive 4 tracks instantly; singles ‘Rio’ and ‘Work It Out’ Feat. Digital Farm Animals, along with brand new tracks ‘Higher’ and ‘Forget What You Look Like’ Feat. Lowell – which was premiered by The Fader.
* Another huge moment on the album, TNT’ features electro funk heroes Chromeo, and allows Netsky to play with an entirely different style of top line altogether, further confirming the record’s ability to fly high above the limitations of club culture and cement itself as a collection of music. 3 is energetic, brash, a reflection of its producer’s discography, and yet something new entirely simultaneously.
