Nero protest their innocence
In the last couple of years, Dan Stephens and Joe Ray (with vocalist Alana) AKA Nero’s reputation has grown massively. They followed their ‘Requiem EP’ for Formation Records with a massive single on Breakbeat Kaos – first home of Pendulum - ‘Act Like You Know’. Their first venture in Dubstep, ‘This Way (featuring Alana)’, released in 2008 is still hailed as a classic of the genre and their recent remix of The Streets ‘Blinded By The Light’ still features in the sets of DJs as diverse as Chase & Status, Diplo, Skream and Tiesto. They have recently supported Chase & Status, Deadmau5 and Zane Lowe on tour.
This single is a glorious example: ‘Innocence’ is an instant dubstep classic, a grandiose feast of dramatic keys and eerie vocals torn to pieces by a monstrous bassline, while ‘Electrons’ unleashes a raw energy reminiscent of the rave days, with an infectious hook and diva-style vocal samples.
