Here’s new Friend of Fly53, Netsky. The international Drum n Bass superstar is seen here in his Burton Jacket.
Currently signed to Hospital Records, in 2010 alone he released 4 singles, 5 huge remixes and a self-titled album. With this rate of production watch out for Netsky in 2011, its going to be another huge year for the prolific Belgian.
2010 has been a whirlwind year for all of the FLY53 artists, and that’s not set to change with Riya! Her year has gone from strength to strength, and doesn’t seem like stopping any time soon.
She has featured on tracks from Drum n Bass moguls Lenzman and Total Science which were both playlisted on 1Xtra radio. This is as well as her own single ‘Seems Like’ being released on Autonomic in October! (video available below) ’Seems Like’ was one of the best tunes of the year in our opinion, and Fabric seemed to agree after featuring the track on their CD earlier this year. This opinion was also agreed by IDJ and DJ Mag too!
This has lead to a live world tour with Lenzman which has drawn much acclaim from critics and fans alike.
As if this wasn’t enough, Riya has also begun a series of podcasts, the first of which was available on Christmas Eve. When we asked her about the series she told us she “presents an eclectic mix of urban beats and exclusive promos.” Definitely keep an eye out for that one!
She is also appearing on BBC 1Xtra’s Rampage Club Sessions, singing live on 5th January, make sure you tune in as we’re sure it won’t be one to miss!
So it seems like Riya is set for a hectic 2011, and here at FLY53 we can’t wait to see what she does next.

Dread MC on tour repping his FLY53 gear.
Long time friend of FLY53, Dread MC, has toured the UK extensively in 2010. Dread is well known across the Dubstep and Drum n Bass scene and the big nights in this genre are rarely found without him somewhere on the line-up. 2010 was no exception for the Bristolian, which saw him on the line up for many Under the Radar events, as well as Bedlam and Off the Grid.
FLY53 kept him looking fresh for all of these shows with some awesome threads straight from the latest collections. You can see Dread rocking them to full effect in the videos below:

Cut and Paste with DJ Yoda
DJ Yoda is one of Britain’s most admired, original club DJs and an audio-visual pioneer. DJ Yoda has transformed clubbing as we know it, throwing down styles as diverse as Hip-Hop, Funk, Baltimore Club, Drum n Bass and even Country music, all cut-up with a awe-inspiring selection of film, TV show and You Tube visuals that elevate his sets to the uniquely sublime.
A judge for three years-worth of DMC DJ World Finals, tipped by Q Magazine as one of ‘The 10 DJs you must see before you die’ and voted alongside DJ Premier as ‘One of the Top Three DJs in the World’ in Hip-Hop Connection magazine, DJ Yoda represents a new brand of mix-master who can happily play any kind of music to make people dance.
In True Yoda style we see him here cutting and pasting his wardrobe with the Fly53 Tech 7 Shirt.
