Drum n bass DJ and honorary Kiwi, Netsky, has just released the official music video for his track ‘Mixed Emotions’, which features Auckland producer Montell2099. The vid features stunning imagery of New Zealand, and the beautiful people who live here.

Netsky, a household name across New Zealand’s summer music circuit, is set to release his album Second Nature on October 30. ‘Mixed Emotions’ is the record’s debut single.

Directed by Connor Prichard and featuring incredible scenery and landscapes across locations including Katikati, Queenstown, The Coromandel and Auckland and featuring Ngāi Te Rangi and Te Rereatukahia Marae, the video is a true celebration of Aotearoa and Netsky’s love for our land and people. 

"I’ve considered New Zealand as a second home for a long time now. I’m eternally grateful for the memories this country and its people have given me.

“It felt natural to express my love for the country showcasing its natural beauty and the people who inspired Montell and I to write this song.

Huge thanks to Nana Mabel and all at Te Rereatukahia marae for your help and creative input, and all of the wonderful Kiwi’s who featured in the video.

Ngā mihi nunui ki a koutou”

Second Nature also features collaborations from Sub Focus, Becky Hill, Rudimental, Hybrid Minds, Urbandawn and more.
