Nerm and D-Code
Nerm is 29 from Birmingham, and D-Code aged 27, from Essex.
Nerm was into all types of music from Prince to The Prodigy, from Biohazard to The Beatles. When jungle/drum n bass emerged, it drew him in completely. He started DJing with his first residency at the Ministry of Sound in Birmingham in '98. He then went on to join club night Swaraj as their headline DJ and featured as the prominent front-man in electronic punk band "Charged" signed to Nation Records.
D-Code got into dance music from the hardcore scene, from early raves in Essex and the famous Labyrinth in East London which converted him from raver to DJ. As the scene evolved and took on more influences, D-Code started playing sets on London pirate radio stations between 1999-2001 as well as having a show on Gaialive.com one of the first internet radio stations. In 2003 he went into music production, setting up his own studio and and churning out tune after tune.
Nerm and D-Code met at an East London warehouse party and quickly bonded over their love of music and DJing. D-Code soon joined up with Nerm as part of Shiva Soundsystem and things began to take off. With Shiva Soundsystem, Nerm and D-Code have held down several London residencies, as well as touring India, Venezuela and the USA. They've played at festivals such as Lovebox, Bestival, Rise & Glastonbury and featured on radio and TV worldwide, including features on BBC 2, MTV India, and a OneWorld show on Radio 1.
Nerm hosts Electro East, the experimental drum n bass show on the BBC Asian Network (Saturday nights, midnight - 2am), and for the last year and a half has broken many new artists, exclusives and musical barriers.
D-Code has remixed tracks for Asian Dub Foundation and Riz MC amongst many others. His production work can be heard in almost every big drum n bass club in the world with plays from Fabio, Andy C and London Elektricity, as well as support from DJs as diverse as Pete Tong, Huw Stephens, Bobby Friction, Nihal and Colin Murray. Now, with the In New DJs We Trust show the duo promise to take things to the next level.
