Who are they?
Miriam Nervo and Olivia Nervo are Australian musicians and songwriters, better known by their stage name NERVO. They started singing with Sony/ATV Music Publishing since they were 18. Furthermore, the twins pursued careers as songwriting partners, co-writing the Grammy Award-winning single, “When Love Takes Over,” performed by David Guetta and Kelly Rowland. These multi-talented DJ dynamos are the all-time top-ranking female DJs in the world. Thouring the world, their nonstop schedule takes them from the shimmering beaches of Ibiza, to their studio in their home-away-from-hometown of London, to the towering Main Stage of Electric Daisy Carnival in Las Vegas.
How did they get started?
Mim and Liv’s career caught fire in 2009, when they co-wrote the emphatic and grand global hit “When Love Takes Over” for David Guetta and Kelly Rowland. But their journey into dance music started years prior in the festival fields of their native Australia, when as teenagers they went all-out for life-changing electronic acts like The Prodigy, Basement Jaxx, and Fatboy Slim.
Having cemented their songwriting prowess with a global No. 1 (plus several other songs for artists like Ke$ha, Kylie Minogue and Armin Van Buuren), NERVO set out to pursue their own career as artists, quite literally writing their own songs under their own name. Their friends and collaborators in the world showed up to support them. “We’re All No One” with Afrojack and Steve Aoki (No. 8 on the Billboard Hot Dance Club Songs chart),”The Way We See The World” with Afrojack, Dimitri Vegas and Like Mike (the official anthem of Tomorrowland 2011, which has garnered over 34 million YouTube views), “Reason” with Hook N Sling, “Something to Believe In” with Norman Doray, “Like Home” with Nicky Romero (their first No. 1 topping the Beatport chart for 3 weeks), “Turn This Love Around” with Armin Van Buuren (off the No. 1 DJ’s new album Intense): Their list of A-list collaborators is dance music’s longest and most enviable, and in a world dominated by bros, that’s one hell of a sister act. They can do it for themselves too: NERVO original “You’re Gonna Love Again” has over 8.3 million views and their 2013 single “Hold On” (#1 on the Billboard Club Play chart) has garnered 3.4 million views.
Fortunately the girls can get a regular fix during their residencies and headlining sets at some of the top venues and events in the world.
This summer NERVO released “Not Taking This No More” (#1 on the Beatport Electro House chart). Their new single titled “Revolution”, a collaboration with R3hab and Ummet Ozcan, was released on Nov 11th via Spinnin Records and has spent 3 weeks at #1 on Beatport.
