Nero trio

Daniel Stephens, Joseph Ray and Alana Watson, also known as Nero, are a bass music trio based in London, UK. Nero creates dubrock and electropunk.

Style of Dubstep[]

The group's self-styled 'dubrock' and 'electropunk' mashes together euphoric synth stabs and soaring diva vocals with grinding halfstep beats and overdriven, electro basslines; creating an emotionally-driven hybrid. Nero have found success through a big room sound which merges dubstep and drum & bass with elements of 90s commercial house and contemporary trance.

Artist Discovery[]

Nero first came to widespread attention with a devastating remix of The Streets' Blinded by the Lights, Sasha Frere-Jones, a journalist for the New Yorker Magazine, listed Nero's remix of, Blinded by the Lights in his top songs of 2009. The track had radio airplay in the UK and also was played by DJs during their live sets, which transformed Mike Skinner’s bittersweet original into a monstrous UK bass banger and was a massive hit with DJs as diverse as Chase & Status, Skream, Tiësto and Diplo.
