Skynet - Exclusive New Zealand Tour.

We are very proud to present to you the one and only OG of drum and bass: Skynet Landing on New Zealand shores for the first time with 2 exclusive shows, in Wellington and Christchurch. This is a feast for true DnB heads and you're definitely in for a treat!

Skynet stands as one of the great figureheads of DnB, as an entity producing since the '90s and being one of the true innovators of the genre for many years. Pioneering a unique breed of tech-oriented dance music, he established himself early on in the history of the scene as a leading force in pushing a futuristic aesthetic.

In his early days, he followed a path that saw him producing both solo works and a collaboration with Stakka that spanned forty 12” singles and three LPs.

Releasing alongside fellow DnB revolutionaries such as Rob Data, Kemal and Friction, as well as being showcased on John Peel’s legendary BBC radio show. Their first LP ‘Voyager’, on Audio Blueprint, was widely regarded as a seminal work for the evolution of futuristic tech-driven DnB.

This approach was refined and focused further in their follow-up LP ‘Blazin’, containing the stand-out track ‘Side-Effects’ - marked as a favourite by Grooverider, and considered a historic DnB anthem by enthusiasts around the globe. Skynet’s partnership with Stakka came to an end following the release of their LP ‘Clockwork’, which stands in time as a true classic, but brought both artists to a time when they felt strongly about following their own individual pathways.

Since then, Skynet has spent his time dedicated to touring and in the studio, further developing his unique tech sound and primarily releasing music through his own Skynet Recordings imprint and sub-label ‘Discrete’ - with his strong following constantly evolving and growing through this output. With consistent tour dates across Europe, America, South Africa and Australia, his presence is felt globally, laying out his advanced tech-perspective wherever he touches down.

2015 saw serious forward momentum in DnB, with neuro funk pulling heavily towards tech-step and a new fusion of genres emerging, simultaneously looking back to the roots and pushing forward into the future.

Skynet reconfirmed his place in the movement with the release of ‘One Speed’ on Noisia’s Invisible Recordings imprint, as well as ‘Disorder’ on Mindtech Recordings. In the year ahead - 2016 – the tech sound is set for massive expansion, with Skynet remaining one of the true leaders and legends of the genre.
