Biography

There is more than one artist with this name:

1. Dubstep and Drum and Bass producers from UK.
2. Rap artist from New York, USA.
3. Hardcore Techno alias of Alec Empire
4. Alternative Rock band From Ireland.
5. A Japanese singer who posts his covers on Nico Nico Douga.


1. Nero say that they’re best known for ‘Ragga Puffin’, but they’re possibly being a bit modest here (as they are almost certainly being ironic when they say that the future of DJing is Paris Hilton). They first shot to notoriety - in drum & bass circles anyway - with their 2005 release ‘Ragga Puffin’ on DJ SS’s Formation offshoot Reformed Recordings, a track with an epic intro that would only hint at what was to come from this hugely talented production/DJ duo.


Daniel Stephens and Joe Ray had a No.1 single in the UK with ‘Promises’ in August this year, and simultaneously held the No.1 album slot in the UK with ‘Welcome Reality’. These immense achievements - as well as supporting and remixing Deadmau5 - marked the culmination of Nero morphing from a d&b act through dubstep and into all-conquering EDM.

Dreamy banger ‘Innocence’, featuring Alana Watson on vocals, was their first big dubstep record on MTA Records, the label run by Chase & Status, another junglist duo who broadened out their palette to embrace other musical styles. And they haven’t really looked back, having bigger and bigger hits with ‘Me & You’, ‘Guilt’ and then ‘Promises’ as 2011 progressed.
