Electric Zoo NY Artist Update: Netsky Releases Official Video For New Single Running Low feat. Beth Ditto

Netsky presents Official Video for “Running Low” feat. Beth Ditto 
Headlines Electric Zoo New York on Sunday, August 31
[YouTube] Netsky – Running Low (Official Video) ft. Beth Ditto – Watch here!
Shazam the video now to get an exclusive free download of the Fred V & Grafix remix of the single

New York is in for a treat this August as drum & bass prodigy Netsky releases his new track “Running Low” on August 24 before closing out the summer by headling Electric Zoo’s Riverside stage on Sunday, August 31. Meanwhile, watch Netsky’s official video for “Running Low” here before the end of summer bash.

“Running Low” received its radio debut as one of Zane Lowe’s Hottest Records on BBC Radio 1, and boasts a stellar remix package courtesy of Todd Edwards, Wookie and Fred V & Grafix. The remix package is being offered as a free download through the Shazam promotion. The official music video brings to life the heady vocals of Beth Ditto against Netsky’s infamous supercharged drum and bass melodies.

Hailing from Belgium, Netsky has, in a few short years, built a reputation for delivering relentlessly on-point, hard hitting drum & bass anthems which have earned him numerous awards and accolades the world over. Signing to Hospital Records in 2009, releases such as “Memory Lane” and his infamous self-titled debut album Netsky propelled the talented young producer from Antwerp into a meteoritic rise to quickly become one of the most talked about and talented names within the electronic music world. His trademark sound, an explosive fusion of stirring vocals with a unique and soulful take on the drum & bass sound, has earned him respect and support from across the industry and an extensive, dedicated global fan base.

After signing with JHO Management, and then consequently to Epic Records for his first major release, “Running Low,” which has just charted at Number 1 in the Official Belgian singles chart, is the first taste of new material from Netsky, who has been locked in the studio, busily working on his third album which will released later in 2014.

Seamlessly blurring the lines between artist and superstar producer, Netsky also boasts an impressive cast list of remix duties, having remixed a number of huge anthems including Pendulum’s “Witchcraft”, Swedish House Mafia’s “One” and Rusko’s “Everyday”, which has since garnered nearly 18 million views on YouTube. Netsky tracks now account for 3 out of the 5 most viewed videos on UKF!

This summer sees another jam-packed touring schedule for Netsky, including a headlining slot at New York’s premier electronic music festival, Electric Zoo next month. One thing’s for sure, 2014 is looking to be a groundbreaking year of massive proportions for Belgium’s premium DJ export.

Netsky performs at Electric Zoo Festival, Sunday August 31 at Randall’s Island Park, NYC.

Two Fresh gives Los Angeles a sneak peek of their upcoming BlimpusEP at SONOS Studio on Saturday, July 19. Composed of twin brothers Kendrick and Sherwyn Nicholls, Two Fresh stands at the forefront of boundary-pushing beat-makers, propelling hip hop-infused electronic bass music into the future. Their ‘BlimpusEP is out July 29 on SMOG Records with remixes from Starkey, Lil Texas, and Atlantic Connection.  
Built on a foundation of hip hop, Two Fresh’s sound seamlessly incorporates elements of sampling, a booming low end and catchy synth lines. On ‘BIimpus,’ expect to hear harmonious synths, melodic strings, jungle-laced snares, syncopated piano licks, and much more, layered on an addictive bass backbone and wrapped in warm summer vibes. Meanwhile, Two Fresh has amassed serious momentum between extensive touring with artists like Skrillex, Nit Grit, and 12th Planet, and performing at a slew of music festivals including Coachella, Electric Daisy Carnival, Moogfest, SXSW, Dew Tour, Bumbershoot, DEMF, Starscape, Wakarusa, and Camp Bisco. The twins have also earned recognition from the likes of Rolling Stone, Noisey.com, VIBE, and many more.

“Known for their spacey and experimental sound laced with hip-hop samples and beats, Two Fresh have been able to stand out from the pack and dazzle audiences with their broad spectrum of talent.” VIBE.com

Four years ago the Tennessee-born brothers were making music that was markedly more laidback, their own take on zonked out electronica. These days they’re making more beats with rappers in mind and their sound is Protooled for partying.” — Noisey.com (check out more in Two Fresh‘s interview feature here)

UK’s celebrated Basement Jaxx touch down in Brooklyn for a highly anticipated DJ set at Verboten’s Zeitgeist series on Wednesday, July 16. Nearly four years since their last official album release, Basement Jaxx are also set to release their new album Junto on August 26 via Atlantic Jaxx/PIAS.

Earlier this May, the legendary producer duo of Felix Buxton and Simon Ratcliffe debuted the club-ready, jacking “Unicorn,” the first track to be taken from Junto. It has met with universal praise, working as a perfect taster of what the full length has to offer. Both “Unicorn” and album track “Mermaid Of Salinas” are now available as an instant download with every pre-order of the digital album. Listen to “Unicorn” and “Mermaid Of Salinas” now at: www.soundcloud.com/basement-jaxx
Junto marks the duo’s seventh studio album and the title, which translates from Spanish as together, sums up the spirit of the record and the very essence of the Jaxx’s desire to unify people with their music. “With this album,” says Felix Buxton, “we wanted to do something that felt more at one with the world.” This approach is reflected in the titles of “Power To The People,” “We Are Not Alone” and “Love Is At Your Side,” as well as the uplifting “Never Say Never” and the throwback fun of “What’s The News” and “Sneakin’ Toronto.”
The last few years have seen the pair take time out to write not one but two film scores (“Attack The Block” and “The Hooping Life”) as well as producing an orchestral album in collaboration with the Metropole Orkest. In 2013 they teased out new music in the form of two tropical cuts “Back 2 The Wild” and “What A Difference Your Love Makes” and played a number of their legendary carnival-esque live shows.
