“Big room house.”
Best known for: 
'Hold On, Like Home' (with Nicky Romero)'
Tune of the year: 
“Our tune, 'Like Home' (with Nicky Romero) has been getting a great reaction! Aside from that, we'd say Showtek's 'Cannonball' was a highlight of many of our sets"
“We are not entirely sure whose fees are what, but generally we think as long as everyone is happy — the promoter, the club, the DJs, and most importantly that the fans don't feel ripped off — then the fees are fair.”
Have DJs' fees got out of hand?: 
"It depends on which genre within dance music you're referring to. There's still a buzzing underground scene which doesn't come close to pop music.”
Has dance music become the new pop?: 
“On days that we are exhausted, probably a sloth.”
If you could be any animal, what would you be?: 
“Why not? Show the people you care.”
Should DJs do "heart hands": 
“Each to their own. Talk about what you feel passionate about.”
Do DJs have a duty to speak out about drugs?: 
“All of our best friends, so they could party with us at the gig!”

The Nervo twins have gone from strength-to-strength over the last 12 months, cementing their position as the most popular female DJ act on the planet. Australian twin sisters Miriam and Olivia (Mim and Liv to their pals) originally started out penning pop songs before co-writing 'When Love Takes Over' with David Guetta.

They started DJing while still writing for pop acts like Kylie, Cheryl Cole and Britney Spears, but since 2011's Tomorrowland — about which they wrote 'The Way We See the World' with Afrojack — they haven't looked back, and have immersed themselves in global dance culture.

“It has been an incredible 12 months,” the gals tell DJ Mag. “Gigs have gotten crazier, and the fans more interactive. Our music is being heard by more and more people, so we're super happy. We're literally pinching ourselves everyday.”
Mim and Liv promised themselves some time off to work on their debut album this year, but say that it's been hard to find the time between their punishing DJ schedule. “Does anyone know a great scientist? We'd like to clone a third NERVO to help share the workload for next year,” they joke.
