4 artist albums, 28 singles and 46 remixes, 4 Back 2 Back mix-compilations, a 1000+ international gigs played and clubbers, numbered in their millions, thrilled … all from one chance meeting in a record label office. Nic and Bossi’s Cosmic Gate’s partnership has proved to be one of electronic dance music’s most successful, and one of its most enduring. Creating a perfect in-studio/behind-the-decks storm, 10 years into their career they became the highest-climbers on DJ Mag’s 2009 Top 100 chart and landed back amongst the 25 biggest DJs in the world the following year. Powered by their hugely received albums, club-rocking singles (inc. ‘Not Enough Time’, ‘Body of Conflict’, ‘Analog Feel’ and ‘F.A.V.’) and scene-defining classics ‘Fire Wire’ and ‘Exploration of Space’ their space in EDM’s hall of fame has been secured.
Some people won’t be pinned down. Just when you think you’ve got them comfortably located in one area of your music collection, they spin their creativity on its head and send your playlists into a frenzy. Is it EDM ? Is it Rock ? Is it Dance ? is it Poptronica? How do you bring all of that together and still come up with something that blows you away with every note ……… meet JES.
