C-NETIK

Currently one of the best known names from the portugueseDrum & Bass scene due to much dedication and work, C-Netik got into the genre in the early 00s while discovering electronicmusic and other alternative styles. During those years, he also got started in production, building loops and experimenting in various genres. In his solo productions, C-Netik aims to use and reinvent tendencies from various genres – Techno, Ambient, Industrial, Hardcore, Hip-Hop – creating a fusion of styles which results in original sounds with hypnotic basslines.

This Summer C-Netik performed for the first time at the biggest Hardcore festival, Dominator, in the Netherlands, further cementing his position in the Hardcore Drum & Bass scene. He also played in countries such as Hungary, Slovakia, Belgium, France and Spain, and is being requested for more debuts.

To round off this busy year, new releases on YS and PRSPCT will follow, along with the new collaborations and remix work, as well as his debut on some legendary labels. Keep an eye out for news on all this in the near future, as C-Netik continues to reinvent and reinterpret all kinds of harder music subgenres with his trademark soundscapes.
