It’s been a very quiet and lackluster two years without some new NERO to bump. But, unexpectedly, things are starting to look up as they ended their hiatus to drop two new edits exclusively on Audius. As a huge NERO stan, I might be a little biased, but both edits haven’t left repeat.
Yet another thing I did not have on my 2021 bingo card was this surprising resurface of one of the most iconic production groups around. Monday came with the very pleasant surprise of NERO’s edit of “Emotion” by Daft Punk appearing on Audius. Paying homage to the legendary duo that called it quits just a few weeks ago, this edit helps the healing process. Even more pleasant than the track itself is that this is the first of five (YES FIVE) tracks dropping on Audius.
The second edit of the big five came Wednesday in the form of Tame Impala’s soothing tune, “Disciples.” I mentioned earlier being a NERO stan; I’m also equal parts a Tame Impala stan. To say I’m thriving is an understatement. NERO takes the track’s original electro-pop vibes and amps them up to the next level.
Audius is a music streaming platform that puts the power in the content creators’ hands. This community-controlled way of streaming is proving itself as a force to be reckoned with as their monthly users bump up from 3 million to 4 million in March. The Audius network continues to expand and protect the voices of creators and consumers, if you’re not on the wave yet, it’s time to join.
NERO, if you’re reading this, don’t be shy, drop track number 3.
