CERN:

Over the past decade, NZ native Cern has entrenched himself as a strong presence in the global drum and bass scene, proving his skills in the studio are matched by his selection in the club. Since his first release in 2008, Cern has amassed a long list of standout releases on heavyweight labels including Project 51, Renegade Hardware, Dispatch Recordings, Samurai Music and Commercial Suicide and has shared his intricate mixing style with crowds throughout the UK, Europe and Oceania.

Following his full-length album ‘Terminus’ in 2011, Cern’s production skills have broadened to encompass dance floor destroyers like the remix of ‘Back in the Grind’ for Octane & DLR (with Dabs), the head-nodding atmospheric subtleties of ‘Apparition’ featured on ‘Way of the Samurai’, to the 97’esque ‘Raven Row’.

Heading into 2013, Cern’s sonic expansion has continued, with outings on the Renegade Hardware V/A Limber EP, a 12′ for Dispatch (‘Pinch Me / Hollow Moon’) featuring his third collaboration with Sabre, a track with Dabs for Dispatch and ‘Tidal’ with J.Robinson for Tribe 12. Coming next is his solo EP for Renegade Hardware, a track on Samurai’s experimental sister label Horo and further beats to come on Cylon & a collab with Loxy for Xtinction Audio.
