German trance duo Nic Chagall and DJ Bossi have been around for more than a decade, first coming to international prominence with trance behemoth 'Fire Wire' - a top 10 record in the UK in 2001. They've since notched up seven Top 40 singles in their native Germany, and a fistful of albums and hundreds of rocking gigs have ensured that they're Germany's biggest trance export behind Paul van Dyk. "Looking back on the past 12 months, the biggest highlight was definitely remixing James Horner's 'I See You (Theme from Avatar)'," the guys tell us. "It was the title song of the very impressive Avatar film, the best-selling film of all time." They also cite the release of their remix album 'Back 2 Back 4', including the accompanying single 'Barra', and the re-release of their last artist album 'Sign Of the Times' as a deluxe edition - with loads of new remixes - as highlights of the year. They were nominated by Beatport in the Best Selling Trance Artist category, received two IDMA nominations for their 'Not Enough Time' single, and also a nomination for Best Remixer. They're about to release a remix album, 'Back 2 The Future', of remixes of some of their early material ('Fire Wire' etc), and their next artist album is slated for release in early 2011.
