Dubstep duo Nero, who has just celebrated their first UK number one with their track ‘Promises’ has released their Debut album, Welcome Reality.
One thing that always catches me with Nero compared to other Dubstep artist is that I find it so trancy and very symphonic. There are so many wonderful symphony kind of sounds (as noticable in the first two tracks) and yet such tight production and low low low bass rumbling that just makes every part of listening to this album, fun!
The whole album is a mix of trancy dubstep to gritty dubstep to fun funky dubstep. You can not go wrong with this. It has the right balance of everything.
‘Crush On You’ – Nero’s take on the classic The Jets track is a perfect example of a fun funky and gritty dubstep track.
It whines it brr’s it wubs yet it puts a smile on your face and keeps you singing along. During the breaks and verse later on its a full on just funk off. Or at least in my opinion :-).
Another track that does this is ‘Must Be The Feeling’ which follows on nicely from ‘Crush On You’.
If you get the deluxe version, you also get the ‘Symphony 2808′ track which was recorded at Maide Vale studios with the BBC Philharmonic Orchestra as part of BBC Radio 1 and 1xtra’s “Dubstep Week”.
It has been re-mixed and mastered to give you the full onÂ experienceÂ of this brilliant sounding masterpiece. It’s just such a great listen.
If you loved Nero’s past singles or even just liked them, I beg you to try this album out. It won’t let you down.
I’m in love with it.
