The second in Ministry Of Sound's acclaimed 'Inspired' compilation series comes from irrepressible Australian DJ/producer duo NERVO, who, having first established their credentials writing hit records for the likes of David Guetta, Armin van Buuren, Ke$ha and even Kylie Minogue, have gone on to cement themselves as one of the most exciting dance music acts in the world.
Having enjoyed a series of Beatport #1 hits since the unparalleled success of 2013 single 'Like Home' alongside Nicky Romero, a track that topped the charts for three weeks and has since amassed nearly 10 million views on YouTube, NERVO's inaugural full length outing for Ministry Of Sound represents an exciting landmark in an already burgeoning career.
With the compilation series itself giving artists a reputable platform to tell their own story through records, highlighting those that have inspired them most on their respective journeys to the top, NERVO's mixes offer up compelling new insight into their development as globally acclaimed artists.
Due for release on May 19th, NERVO's 'Inspired' piece spans over two CDs, with the first covering 'Present & Future inspirations' and the second covering 'Past Inspirations', with both exploring a fully comprehensive mix of styles and sounds.
With a whole host of classic club tracks from across the wider reaches of electronic music soundtracking their 'Past Inspirations' Mix, even including Fatboy Slim's iconic 'Praise You' and the late Frankie Knuckles' seminal house jam 'Your Love', NERVO’s early inspirations are clearly deep-rooted in genuine dance floor culture.
Looking to the future, the duo take in a stellar selection of upfront dance floor cuts right across their 'Present and Future Inspirations' mix, offering up tracks from the likes of US starlets Deorro, Steve Aoki, Showtek and Mercer, as well as hotly-tipped UK duo Dusky and a slew of their own material, including unreleased & exclusive track NERVO feat Duane Harden - Sunshine Thru Rain Clouds.
Flawlessly mixed and typically immersive, NERVO's 'Inspired' compilation serves as a fitting follow up to Tommy Trash's debut Inspired piece. Joining the dots between classic dance floor sounds and an innovative new concept, it represents an exciting new chapter for NERVO and continues Ministry Of Sound's reputation for keeping their ear firmly to the ground.
To celebrate, NERVO will be playing an exclusive album launch party at Electric Brixton on May 9th alongside special guests R3HAB, with tickets set to go on sale from March 14th.
