His music draws upon influences from many different sources including Jazz, Hiphop, DnB, Glitch, Dub, Dubstep and Blues just to name a few. His debut EP “Burn City Steppa Volume 1″ is a fresh, minimalist arrangement of deep spacial dubstep heavily influenced by the original London future garage sound. Featuring a guest appearance by Melbourne’s Dyzlexic CM on the opening track “Beddageddabeddabeat” Dyz’s rolling flows move smoothly, taking things back to the origins garage style.

Twisted Audio is very proud to present one of the biggest acts in the history of DnB touring their new album, “From the Shadows” is their 5th LP released since the early 2000′s and it has received impressive reviews from around the globe with tracks featuring some heavyweights such as Noisia, Foreign Beggars, Audio, SOM and more, get ready for:
BLACK SUN EMPIRE (NL)
‘From The Shadows LP Tour’
EASTER SUNDAY 31st MARCH @ BROWN ALLEY
Hosted by: MC Harzee & SK
Black Sun Empire
Black Sun Empire represent the finest in dark and techy dancefloor drum & bass. Since bursting onto the scene back in 2000, they’ve continued to develop their own unique style and sound, releasing numerous singles as well as three full‐length LPs and establishing themselves as leaders in the field.
With their awesome DJ skills and inspirational productions, Black Sun Empire have reached far beyond their native Holland. They’ve toured the world over, with hghlights this year including Glastonbury and numerous other festival appearances, and continue to build on their growing reputation as some of the most exciting and consistent performers around.
‘Lights and Wires’ was their fourth full‐length album, released in November 2010, and demostrates their versatility across tempos whilst still staying true to their own sound.
Black Sun Empire released their new album ‘From The Shadows’ on their own label BSE Recordings in September 2012 to widespread acclaim. The album also topped the Beatport Drum and Bass charts in the week of its release.
With From The Shadows, Black Sun Empire have managed to perfectly capture much of the classic flavour of their early productions and to perfectly combine this with contemporary production skills. The result is an album of largely hard hitting dance-floor friendly tracks, cut out against their familiar futuristic sci-fi backdrop, with the occasional step into more interesting territory. Some of the collaborations have yielded genuinely special results, each of the tracks have been realised with the typically top of the line production powers we’ve come to expect from a veteran trio of this calibre.

Rarely have we seen someone rise through the ranks as quickly as Boris Daenen, a.k.a Netsky. Leading a wave of new skool D+B talent from Europe with his blend of uplifting, melancholic melodies and heavy dancefloor bass + beats, Netsky’s popularity is astounding. A celebrity in his own country, he has received numerous awards and accolades and continues to impress audiences across the world with his Netsky LIVE! show with full band.
Netsky signed exclusively to Hospital in late 2009; his first release was the iconic “Memory Lane” (as featured on “Sick Music 2″ in 2010) and this was swiftly followed up by his chart topping debut album – “Netsky”– in May of the same year. Following virtually unanimous praise and hype from all corners of the globe, it plunged Netsky firmly into the limelight, where he has remained ever since, delivering a potent mix of dancefloor anthems, vocal led classics and that clean cut new jungle sound which has become his trademark.
Since then, Netsky’s profile as a remixer has been affirmed by his huge remixes of ubiquitous club anthems such as Pendulum – “Witchcraft”, Plan B, Leftfield – “Release The Pressure”, Audio Bullies – “Only Man”, Swedish House Mafia – “One”, Jessie J – “Nobody’s Perfect” and Rusko – “Everyday” and more.
Alongside all this, is Netsky’s hectic schedule and he seems to have a Midas touch, able to transform even the most subdued of parties into an ecstatic, bouncing rave within a matter of minutes. It is no coincidence that he was nominated for the Radio One ‘Essential Mix Of The Year’ in 2010.
In 2012, Netsky unveiled the incredibly impressive Netsky LIVE! at Hospitality Brixton – a full live show with a band. Following the release of January’s digital-only single “Give & Take” and “Come Alive” in May, Netsky’s highly anticipated sophomore album “2” landed late in June and has been received with widespread critical acclaim, hitting the UK Top 30 and No. 1 in his home country of Belgium. One thing’s for sure, 2013 has so far been another golden year for Belgium’s premium D&B export as he presents his full live band across the planet. Be prepared for something special !
