Like the no mans land between Christmas and New Year, there comes a point in Miami when it’s hard to work out what day it is anymore. This discombobulating experience almost always arrives thanks to the sprawling nature of Get Lost, the ninth edition of Damian Lazarus’ party, which this year stretches to a 24-hour experience lasting from early Saturday to Sunday morning.
Tiesto and Martin Garrix, the big room Dutch master and his young protege, have just been announced as joining the ranks of DJs on BBC Radio 1.
The UK national radio station, which specialises in dance music at the weekends and some evenings, is bringing in the pair for its Residency slots on Thursday nights. Trance stalwart Simon Patterson and electro don Brodinski are also being drafted in for shows in the Residency slot.
The Australian sisters Liv and Mim have been a regular mainstay in the Top 100, and this year has proved there’s no stopping them.
DJ Mag caught up with the busy duo to ask what they’ve been up to this year: “Touring like crazy. Think we’re nudging 200 shows this year. We had our NERVONation parties in Miami, Austria and Ibiza at Ushuaia, which have all been amazing. We have been busy working on new music and recently got a major sync with iPhone 8 for a track we did with Sofi Tukker called ‘Best Friend’,” they begin.
This year has been non-stop for the charismatic Aussies. As well as their shows, they’ve had releases gracing many of the record label giants including Ultra, Spinnin’, Big Beat, Cr2 and Armada Music. Their summer smash ‘The Other Boys’ is an all-star collaboration with the legendary Nile Rodgers, pop princess Kylie Minogue and Scissor Sisters frontman Jake Shears
Considering their previous records have won Grammy Awards and regularly surf the top of the iTunes charts, there’s no doubt they’ll be continuing to ride the wave straight into 2018.
Australian sisters NERVO are big news. While some have questioned the lack of women in the Top 100 DJs poll, these DJ and production siblings have consistently placed in the upper reaches. Starting out as songwriters for everyone from Britney Spears to Kelly Rowland and Armin van Buuren, they’ve a natural knack for well-placed hooks, which pepper their productions.
In July 2015, they finally released their debut album ‘Collateral’, which features music royalty of the calibre of Chic’s Nile Rodgers and Kylie Minogue just for starters.
And while a clever pop sensibility is evident in their style, they’re not afraid of getting a little deeper musically, throwing in some groovier house during their DJ sets, which are clearly in high demand. They’ll play London, Las Vegas, Zurich and Sao Paulo before the year is out.
Australian DJ duo and EDM superstars, Nervo, will spin at this year's DJ Mag Top 100 DJs Party at the iconic O2 Brixton Academy in London.
Set to kick off on Saturday 18th October, and hosted in association with Lock N Load Events, the girls join already announced headliners Aly & Fila, Ferry Corsten, Markus Schulz, Dash Berlin and many more.
