iTunes Review

Soundtracking a fictional film is easily the next best thing to recording a concept album. With 2011’s Welcome Reality British producers Joe Ray, Dan Stephens and vocalist Alana Watson did just that under the Nero moniker. The futuristic opener “2808” sets the tone for a dark post-apocalyptic realm of electro reality where rock ‘n’ roll has become extinct. It bleeds into the pulsing “Doomsday,” brilliantly infusing progressive arrangements into hard, gritty dubstep. “My Eyes” begins with minimalist Brian Eno-inspired soundscapes before transforming into a Daft Punk-esque ballad where Watson sings like a less quirky Björk. Utilizing timeless technological tones, Both “My Eyes” and the instrumental breaks on “Guilt” blend vintage sounding electronic textures with modern-day innovative production to forge something that plays like an upgraded reworking of Vangelis’ 1982 score for Blade Runner.

Nero is a musical genius. I usually do not like a lot of singing in my electronic music but this one is the exception. This is for sure one of my favorite albums ever. My other favorite is Eric Walker's Tangier Dream. His songs Dreamscape, Dimension Walker, and 2012 are awesome. I suggest you check it out here on itunes. Both Nero and Eric Walker's cd should get top honors this year. I would also love to see Nero play these tracks live.

Kill the beat !!!

Magnifique !!!!


Face melting old school dirty trance kinda vibes with new school dirty dirty that makes you wanna face hug a tower of speakers and dream scape the whole album. Top notch. Hope to get a chance to see this live on day.

Formed in 2004 and signed to the Formation Records label that same year, the group released a series of drum'n'bass 12"s that would take them up to 2008. That year, the Audio Freaks label released their "This Way" single, marking their shift toward...
