Cern's EP Release!!

A sneaky hint of things to come... on October 17th, Cern will be releasing via all digital platforms his debut EP, Manaiai.

A widespread name around the globe already; Cern's production has seen released and forthcoming tracks on many of the scenes leading European record labels including UK's Renegade Hardware, Critical, Cylon,Syndrome Audio as well as New Zealand's own Samurai Music

Since 2001 Cern have been collectively producing music for the main purpose of having a good time and making use of their creative tendencies. After finishing school both Climate(Jonny) and Omen(Ollie) began work at the then home of underground music in Auckland, Fu Bar. This is where their passion for DJing and production began and they experiences the best of what the world had to offer. After getting recognised for their skills, they soon began to support some of the acts for New Zealand drum and bass pioneers Subtronix and Cyanide Recordings. This is when their attention turned to production, and their skills began to take form.

2006 and 2007 saw collaborations with Bulletproof, Dose, Teknik, Menace, Consequence and Luca, and promotion of both local shows and guests including Noisia, Mayhem, dBridge and Psidream.

2008 saw a tough year for Cern. Sadly and suddenly, Jonny Cern passed away in July leaving behind a bright and fast rising future in the International drum and bass scene, and a huge amount of close friends and family. To this day he is hugely missed and never forgotten.

Ollie Cern toured Europe and Australasia at the end of the year as a tribute, helping to keep his memory and ideas alive and helping to extend their music to everyone who has supported them over the years. Although this tragedy halted production initially, Ollie Cern has opted to continue writing and Djing in honor of his best buddy.

More recently Cern has gone on to collaborate with international artists Loxy, dBridge, Logistics, Sabre, Jubei, Nymfo, Phace & Misanthrop, as well as exciting new local talent Consequence & Tokyo Prose. With another European tour in the works for 09 and a forthcoming album on Concord Dawn's imprint, Uprising, this year is set to be a busy one for Cern.
