Newcomers to the mainstream dubstep world, Nero teamed up with the BBC Philharmonic Orchestra to produce ‘Dubstep Symphony’ which featured in the two-and-a-half-week festival, BBC Philharmonic Presents… The festival which comes to an end this week sees unique collaborations with talented individuals from diverse musical backgrounds.
Fast becoming a trend, Nero, accepted the challenge of performing with classical musicians and produced ‘Dubstep Symphony’ which was broadcast as part of BBC Radio 1Xtra’s Dubstep Week. The questionable collaboration just goes to prove that music can be produced in multiple forms and still be widely received by the public. Nero added: “We feel so privileged to be given this opportunity – we’re both massive fans of classical music so working with an orchestra on this level is amazing.”
The success of Dubstep Sympony only adds to the tidal wave of positive criticism Nero are currently receiving, as their single ‘Guilt’ is currently standing its ground in the UK Top 10 charts. Hit ‘Me and You’ went on to achieve global success, while ‘Innocence’ saw them raised from the underground. Nero will support Tinie Tempah on his Autumn arena tour, while radio DJs Fearne Cotton, Zane Lowe, Greg James, Nick Grimshaw and Annie Mac continue to sing their praises. It’s clear that Nero are ready to produce some exciting work so one can only imagine what treats the album holds in store.
Nero’s new album Welcome Reality will be released on 1st August through record label MTA.
