Nero, this is just down right chilling. From the soundtrack of the movie, ‘The Great Gatsby’ staring Leonardo diCaprio as the Great Gatsby himself, this song is just as massive as the movie is projected to be. A haunting intro into a heavy electro marks the distinct concept work that goes into each track produced from the master. Check out the latest release from Interscope records and let us know what you think!
Skrillex and Nero come together to take this track by MONSTA and turn it into something from another world. This track has the great vocals from MONSTA and Skrillex & Nero brought some heavy bass to it. The second I heard this I loved it and so will you! Check it out!
Alright, so I stumbled upon this while at work, but had to wait to post it til tonight. This is definitely one of the better remixes i’ve heard of a Nero song. Roksonix goes in hard and takes their own sexy twist on this MUST DOWNLOAD track. Jam out and rage on my friends.
As soon as I heard the 80s soul power vocals, it literally was “Game Over” for me. Lately I’ve found myself listening to disco/funk/soul inspired tracks and fancying myself somewhat of a musical anthropologist, I decided to do some digging. Apparently, Skrillex and Nero sampled Moby’s song, “Thousand,” aptly named for holding the Guinness world record for fastest tempo in bpm (hence, 1000) of any released single. Moby, in turn, had sampled the vocals from “Let No Man Put Us Under” by the disco girl group, First Choice. This makes “Game Over” an interestingly layered track. It’s always amazing to see how music can build on itself. I’m inclined to believe that Nero was responsible for the sample choice, largely because their Welcome Reality album was heavily inspired by 80s pop and electro. Either way, the listener can really sense a collaborative effort on this song—Nero’s melodic and yet heavy, electro-pop sound is nicely interspersed with Skrillex’s signature glitch drops and even some Reggae hype-man vocals. The full release is definitely something to look forward to. Listen below!

Flux Pavilion teams up with Nero to create this heavy remix of “Must Be The Feeling.” Their remix departs from the more upbeat and pop-funk rhythm of the original, opting instead for a more sedate version with extra emphasis on bass.

All of you heading to Webster Hall tonight for the Nero concert are in for quite the treat. My buddy and I were lucky enough to get onto the RSVP list for a free and secret show last night by Nero at the Beats by Dre pop-up store in SoHo. I never win anything this cool and it definitely made up for the fact that I didn’t have tickets to their Webster Hall show tonight. Needless to say, the sound system at the Beats store was amazing. As soon as Dre walked in—that’s right, the Dr. Dre—Nero kicked off the secret show by dropping the mammoth-sounding tracks, “Doomsday” and then “Guilt,” on the zealous crowd. Both songs can be found on Welcome Reality, Nero’s debut album, which features their trademark UK dubstep sound infused with melodic 80s-like electro-pop. The show was awesome. I don’t want to spoil the setlist for those going to the concert tonight, but below are a few of the songs they played last night. Enjoy!
