First they woke your mind... now START TO FEEL! From Cosmic Gate’s very first drumbeat through to ‘Start to Feel’ - their new convention-challenging long-player - they’ve proved to be the perfect alliance of musical minds. A by-chance meeting in a Cologne recording studio in the late-nineties set Nic Chagall and Bossi on the course to becoming Germany’s most successful and enduring electronic music duo. Their original productions have thrust them to the highest reaches of download charts & streaming lists, whilst their remixography has included everyone from scene legends like Armin van Buuren to revered Hollywood composers like James ‘Avatar’ Horner. Nic & Bossi’s behind-decks-brotherhood has now created floor-frission at an uncountable number of countries. They’ve sold out arenas, conquered electronic music capitals, spun at a litany of major festivals and 10 years into their career became the highest climbers on DJ Mag’s Top 100 chart. Driven by their critically applauded albums, club-busting singles (incl. ‘Not Enough Time’, ‘Body of Conflict’, The Theme, So Get Up and ‘Falling Back’) and scene- defining classics ‘Be Your Sound’, ‘Fire Wire’ and ‘Exploration of Space’, their place in electronic music’s hall of fame has long since been locked.
Throughout late 2013 and early 2014, Cosmic Gate added other significant dimensions to Wake Your Mind, further spurring the #WYM effect. Following rave receptions to a string of sold out Wake Your Mind In Concert gigs they launched WYM Records. Attached to the Armada Label group, it was conceived as a home for freethinking, no-borders music, which was immediately, underlined this by its first release. Winning widespread praise from the press, ‘So Get Up’ was seen by both fans and the media alike as an (aptly) bold ‘new-avenues’ musical exploration by Cosmic Gate.
Most recently #WYM has further come to encompass the Wake Your Mind Radio show. Across 60 minutes, the fully formatted broadcast features Nic & Bossi discussing and airing the tracks that have been setting their floors on fire. It’ll also encompass first-listen music premieres and tracks from the deeper side of the WYM psyche. The show, which is broadcast on Sirius XM, DI.FM and many other stations, also features comprehensive info on up-and-coming gigs, Nic & Bossi’s Big Bang track of the week and a host of other features including the Throw Back weekly classic and their Private Playlist tune.
