Hailing from Australia, NERVO are fast-emerging as one of the most sought-after DJ duos in dance music today. They’re not only beautiful (as they’re both models), but they also have talent and a unique musical sensibility that’s all their own. They’ve toured with the likes of Paul Oakenfold, DJ Chuckie, they’ve collaborated with Afrojack, Steve Aoki, and last year they opened up for Britany Spears on her Femme Fatale Tour. If that weren’t enough, they’re also hit songwriters with some massive #1 club hits under their belt. Luckily for Las Vegas, they’re bringing their sexy electro-house sounds to XS Nightclub this Sunday Jan. 15th! VegasAllNight had the opportunity to track down the girls and get the scoop on their background, what kind of music gets them inspired, and what they have coming up! Here is our conversation…
You guys are DJing at XS! Do you like to plan your sets in advance or do you shift things at the very last second?
N: We definitely put time into preparing our sets but there is always room to move depending on how the crowd reacts.
You’ve done DJ sets all around the world, where are some of your favorite clubs to DJ?
N: Hmmm… We really love playing Ibiza. It’s always great to play in Australia too. We’re looking forward to playing Brazil for the first time this month.
You’ve worked with David Guetta, Britney Spears, Afrojack, Kylie Minogue, a slew of amazing artists, and the latest rumor we heard was that the Material Girl herself has expressed interest in working with you! What’s the latest on this? Any news you can share?!
N: Yes – Madonna wanted to record one of our songs for her next album but in the end it fizzled out and we are actually going to release it ourselves now. It’s called ‘You’re Gonna Love Again’ and we just finished the mix on it this week.
What kind of artists & music did you listen to growing up? Were you big Kylie fans growing up in Australia?
N: We listened to a lot of electronic music and I (Liv) also really got into my bands… We knew who Kylie was but really got into her more when we moved to The UK.
This was an enormous year for you in plenty of ways, doing a residency with Wynn, and having opened for Britney Spears on her Femme Fatale tour. Was the tour a total blast to say the least? How was it working with Britney?
N: 2011 was a great year, full of so many great times and career highlights. Britney was super sweet and professional. The production on the tour was incredible and we were very spoiled with the catering every day!
Where do you guys like to go in Vegas when you’re not DJing? Any particular restaurants or clubs that you want to give a shout-out to?
N: We often have a wonder around the shops but tend to eat in and around the Wynn. Wazuzu does great sashimi with jalepeno – always a winner. Oh, and the Ruben sandwich (room service) is TO DIE FOR!
What’s next on your plate for 2012?
N: A few more releases coming under our own name. A few more collaborations with some peeps in the electronic world and we’ll be back at Wynn for another residency. Oh and we’ll be in Ibiza for a lot of the European Summer so we’re SUPER excited about that.
Thanks for answering our questions!
