Listen to Nero’s new BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix
On the heels of unveiling their sophomore album, Between II Worlds, Nero finish off strong with their second Essential Mix to date – a departure from their bass-heavy debut in 2010. While it could be argued that the trio’s sound has immensely evolved since exploding into the scene five years ago, the quality of their music continues to reign supreme. Jamie XX, Underworld, The Chemical Brothers, and Amtrac are just a handful of artists featured in the trio’s mix, with the addition of a reminiscent nod to their earlier “Promises” days. Nero’s rise to fame will never be forgotten, but it is evident that their latest Essential Mix and Between II Worlds mark the beginning of a new direction for the UK trio.
