Describe your sound in three words:
N
Bold, brave, escape 

Tell us about your setup:
N
We play house music. Our tunes and other people’s tunes too. 

What time do you usually go to sleep and when do you wake up?
N
We’re constantly topping up on sleep, because we work nights and days too. 

Do you have any rituals before, during, or after a performance?
We’re constantly refreshing our set, finding new music, making new mash-ups, tweaking our own records, etc. 

Where is the strangest place you’ve ever performed?
N
Our grandma once asked us to show her what deejaying was, so we played for her at home for about 15 minutes. She seemed to get it by the end. 

What’s the biggest crowd you’ve ever played to and where?
Definitely one of the Insomniac festivals, probably either Wonderland or Electric Daisy Carnival. 

What is the most fun part of touring?
Feeding off the crowd’s energy and seeing our fans react to our music is the biggest buzz of all time. It’s also great to see the world and experience so many different cultures. 

Least fun part? N The lack of sleep! 

Do you have a team that helps you when it comes to putting your show together?
Nope, just us. 

Do you have any lucky charms?
Each other.  

What’s on your rider that we might not expect?
Most people assume we drink vodka, but Mim drinks whiskey. We also ask for gum (for minty breath) and PowerBars, for when we’re hungry at night and no restaurants are open. 

If you could play anywhere for anyone, what would be your most ideal set?
An 8-hour Ibiza marathon on the beach with a great sound system and all of our friends there. 

What is the biggest misconception about electronic music?
N
It’s not just “doof doof doof.” There’s a lot of depth and different textures in electronic music. Each DJ can be different, in the way they produce and play. 

Personal motto:
Art before chart.
