Well, as Bhanna explained in his Survival Sunday post, the MMIBTY crew had a long weekend in Boston, but late or not we had to bring you this week’s Artist Spotlight on Nervo. After listening to Datsik on the Skullcandy stage from the parking lot at Identity’s Massachusetts stop, we walked in to the festival to be delightfully greeted by the sounds of Mim and Liv Nervo who make up the group Nervo out of Australia and under contract with Virgin U.S.. These twin sister/singer/songwriter/producer/DJ’s have worked with everyone from David Guetta to Katy Perry, and the twin sisters not only bring the noise but happen to be extremely beautiful and have an amazing stage presence really getting the crowd involved on Saturday at the woodsy Advent stage. The first song I have for you is a remix of Nervo’s single Irresistible that we were lucky enough to hear on Saturday and I will be honest these girls stole my heart with this one so enjoy.
Most recently, Nervo contributed vocals and production work to “The Way We See The World” (aka the Tomorrowland 2011 anthem) in collaboration with Afrojack, Dimitri Vegas, and Like Mike signifying their rise to mainstream success. They also recently came off tour with Britney Spears and Nicki Minaj on the Femme Fatale tour and no doubt they made some fans there. And their new single “We’re All No One” (which features Steve Aoki and Afrojack and their own vocals) is scheduled to released on September 6th with a remix pack featuring their own remix below and a handful of others.
Next up I have the Irresistible mixtape from the Nervo gals. This whole mixtape had me groovin and many parts of it reminded me of their set we saw on Saturday in Mass. This mixtape is full of great builds into really catch jungle almost congo-rockish feeling drops that are guaranteed to keep your feet moving mixed in with some awesome soundbytes and samples. Here is a qoute from the Nervo girls’ website that just about sums it all up in terms of what these girls do:
“In counter-contrast with their feminine image – NERVO’s style is bold and sassy, with in-your-face beats that beckon the dance floor to its knees. Their sound is loud and dirty, which has won them respect from the most serious music lovers. They rocked Lolopolooza, Tokyo, Sydney, and opened for will.i.am in Ibiza. Not before they dropped in on Richard Branson at Necker for a Halloween party with the Victoria Secrets models.”
