Belgium’s biggest talent in DnB right now, Part 2.

“O Dierbaar België, O heilig land der vaaadren.” Belgium’s heaving with talented producers and DJ’s right now. This time we take a look at Nexus & Tight, Empire, Cedex & Higher Underground, Lavance, and Andromedik.

Belgium‘s heaving with talented producers, DJ’s and MC’s at the moment. You already know Netsky, and Alix Perez, so maybe it’s time to introduce some more of them to you.

We’ve already covered some here, in part 1.

5. Nexus and Tight



Hayling from the town of Paal (Literally translated to Pole) this talented producer mostly dabbles in the Liquid side of Drum and Bass. He has already releases under Murdock’s Radar Records, Liquicity, and more recently on Terra Firma. His sound is mostly akin to Brookes Brothers, Logistics, Apex, and of course Netsky, as he intertwines soothing soundscapes and bittersweet melodies with trance-inducing basslines and crispy-clean drumtracks.

Check out his track “Prism” :


4. Empire



Let’s take a step into the technical mind of Ostend-born Alexander De Vos. A relatively unknown producer with productions under his belt that begs the question “How is he not yet picked up by Division, Critical, or even belgium’s own Radar records?” His style can mostly be described as tempered agressive, retaining the vibes of the deeper side of Drum and Bass, while exploring touches of the harder spectrum with mean hitting riffs. I urge you to check out his body of work through the links above. In the mean time take a listen to his self-released free EP, and get swayed by this up-and-coming talent’s skills.



3. Cedex & Higher Underground



This dynamic duo from Ghent already made the stage of Star Warz (probably Belgium’s longest running series of Drum & Bass Parties), Tommorowland, Steam, and their own Republic and Square parties. They bring mostly vibey and deeper stuff, but don’t shy away from ranging their sets in the entire spectrum from Liquid to Neurofunk. It’s also nice to see them upping their production game with a recent signing to James Marvel’s newly birthed Space Pirates Recordings. We expect big things from these two Space Cadets!

Take a listen to their first (and free) outing on said Space Pirates:


2. Lavance



This very talented producer from Zelzate has already gained support from the likes of Noisia and Andy C. Combining rattled up old-school breaks with free-flowing subs and factory-sampled percussion elements, he captivates us with his attention to detail and with his way of hitting us like a truck in his (relatively) harder work like Favela, or his latest colaboration with Skarpa “Dead Weight”. Eventhough it’s been somewhat quiet on his side, we’re anxiously awaiting what he’s going to shake out of his sleeve next.
In the mean time we’re going to take yet another listen to Favela:



1. Andromedik



Let’s end this round-up on a liquid note, with Antwerp’s rising star Andromedik. Having releases on Murdok’s Radar-Records and Rampage records, NCS, and High Tea only confirms the quality of his production skills. This is Liquid pur-sang. melting hearts instead of faces, and closing your eyes while wiggling back and forth in anticipation of that sweet sweet drop. He’s played at shows like Rampage and Liquicity, among others, and has been picked up by artists like Metrik and Friction. We’re seeing a future as bright as his music for this talented producer.

Check out his latest release on NCS:
