From their very first drumbeat, through to ‘Materia’ - their 2017-released long-player, Cosmic Gate have proved to be the perfect meeting of musical minds. A chance encounter in a Cologne recording studio almost two decades ago set Nic Chagall and Bossi on course to becoming Germany’s most successful and enduring electronic music duo. Their original productions have taken them to the highest reaches of download charts & streaming lists, whilst their remixography eclectically includes everyone from revered Hollywood composers like James ‘Avatar’ Horner to scene standouts like Armin van Buuren. Nic & Bossi’s behind-decks-brotherhood has provoked critical mass in a now uncountable number of countries. They’ve sold out arenas, dominated electronic music capitals, spun at a near A-to-Z 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-quake singles (‘Falling Back’, ‘Yai (Here We Go Again)’, ‘So Get Up’, ‘Not Enough Time’ et al) and scene-defining classics like ‘Be Your Sound’, ‘Fire Wire’ and ‘Exploration of Space’, their place on dance music’s sidewalk of fame has long since been laid.
As DJs, kinetically feeding off each other’s creativity and energy, Cosmic Gate continue to take floors to supernova globally. In North America they’ve smashed the EDC, Ultra, Electric Zoo, Dreamstate and Nocturnal festivals. Road-blocking clubs and events including Bal En Blanc, IleSonique, Space (in both Miami and New York) and Governors Island, NYC has become their S.O.P. Notably, in 2015, they also headlined one of Toronto’s famed Guvernment club’s finale shows. Floors have similarly felt their pressure in hotspots worldwide. Tomorrowlands in Belgium and Brazil, ASOTs worldwide, Prague’s Transmission, Creamfields and SW4 in the UK, Electronic Family, Ultra Europe and Stereosonic, Australia are just some of the most significant ones. Their WMC/MMW Miami Sunset Cruise is now the stuff of clubbing legend; they sold out a 2000 capacity solo show in Honolulu and the summer of 2017 will mark the third year of their Cream Ibiza residency.
