NERVO: Our five most influential albums

Fresh from being crowned the most popular female DJs of all time by DJ Magazine and destroying the mainstages at festivals like Ultra and Tomorrowland, the all-conquering NERVO (AKA Australian sisters Mim and Liv Nervo) are venturing back to their homeland this February to play a bunch of east coast dates. To mark the occasion, we asked for the records the sisters were listening to in their teenage years that transformed them into today’s unstoppable NERVO phenomenon.

#5 Calvin Harris – I Created Disco

“It’s really tough to pick which one of Calvin’s album’s we like best as they’re all great, but I Created Disco has an ironic feel to it where his personality and wit truly shine through. Two favourite tracks would be Acceptable in the 80s and Merrymaking At My Place – the lyrics are brilliant. It’s super inspiring to see how much Calvin and his sound have evolved over the years.”

#4 Fat Boy Slim – You’ve Come a Long Way, Baby

“This was one of our first memories of “dance” music, and certainly got us interested in sounds coming from The UK.”

#3 Red Hot Chilli Peppers – Blood Sugar Sex Magic

“It’s tough to choose which album we love the most but I think BSSM was the first album that caught our attention. Liv was also quite in love with Anthony Kiedis for most of our adolescent years.”

#2 Prodigy – The Fat of the Land

“We remember this being super fresh when it came out. It’s great to hear records from this album still being remixed today. Firestarter is probably our favourite track from this album.”

#1 Faithless – Forever Faithless

“Apart from loving their music, we were always very inspired by Sister Bliss. She is a true pioneer for women producers or just women artists in the electronic space.”
