Exploding onto the EDM scene in August 2013 with its debut EP “It Feels So Good,” a cover to Sonique’s 1998 smash hit of the same name, (We Are) Nexus is a force to be reckoned with. The duo, comprised of producer/composer Nick Gunn and vocalist/lyricist Carmen Rainier, are no strangers to the music industry, Gunn being a classically trained musician and producer responsible for selling over two million units worldwide. His production skills as applied to (We Are) Nexus are complimented by Rainier’s intelligent lyrics and business-savvy: the two-person team self-produce everything from its impressive social media presence to negotiations and touring prep.
(We Are) Nexus’ list of accomplishments is impressive, especially considering its age. The duo earned the #1 Breakout position on Billboards Dance Club Songs, a peak position of #14 on Billboards Dance Club Songs, iTunes Top 100 Dance and Billboards Top 50 Dance/Electronic Songs spots. “World Around Me,” the follow up single to breakout hit “It Feels So Good” also made the iTunes Top 100 Dance and Billboard Dance Club Songs chart. With radio support and regular Music Choice rotation, (We Are) Nexus looks forward to releasing its next single “They’ll Never Stop Me” and a tour in support beginning in early 2015.
