Best known for:

Tune of the year: 
'Be Your Sound'
Breakthrough DJ/Producer of 2012: 
Orjan Nilsen
If you were a superhero, what would your superpower be: 
To beam - that would mean less time at airports and on planes!
Should you play to the crowd or for yourself: 
Sure, a DJ needs to feed the crowd, but we think it is always important to try and give something new and unexpected.
What does EDM mean to you: 
For the last 20 years EDM has been the centre of our daily lives. It's nearly as natural to have EDM music around us as it is to eat and breathe!
Should celebrities be DJs: 
Sure thing, we are always up for a good laugh!
Have you ever been thrown off the decks: 
Not really, but we had to leave a venue when the crowd was breaking through fences and security lines and flooding the venue! There was a real riot feeling.
Are you a DJ if you don't beat match: 
The right track selection is most important. Good beat matching should be important for every club DJ. Using a laptop or sequencer to do this isn't really satisfying or cool in our eyes.
Where's the next dance music capital: 
Ibiza and Las Vegas are both investing big numbers to remain No.1. New super venues will be ready next season and the competition will get even stronger.

2012 has seen Nic and Bossi touring last year's 'Wake Your Mind' album globally. Playing over 140 shows this year, it's a wonder they can pinpoint their favourites.

"The whole of the last 12 months has been one never-ending highlight for us," the Top 100 regulars say. "There are two 'Wake Your Mind' concerts that stick out because we've been totally overwhelmed. One in Johannesburg in South Africa, and one in Melbourne, Australia. The amount of people plus the energy was completely off the hook." Now US-based, the German duo's momentum looks set to continue with more shows coming up and a deluxe edition of the album set for release.

"One more single from the album is still to come, while new tracks are lined up already," they tell us. "So we will be keeping busy."
