One+One sees two of today’s most exciting, talented and revered artists join forces as they attempt to create a piece of dance music history.
James Zabiela and Nic Fanciulli first struck up a friendship during gigs in Asia in 2005. Their mutual understanding of each other’s music coupled with the fact they had fun and got into all sorts of mischief together made them inseparable. Throughout 2006 the pair experimented playing back2back, including New Year’s Day in Nic’s hometown of Maidstone, the sunnier climes of Miami’s WMC at Cafeteria and We Love… Space, Ibiza. All received rave reviews (no pun intended) and it was proof indeed JZ and Nic needed to take this idea further – and so ‘One+One’ is born.
The concept will encompass a world tour, starting at Miami’s WMC 2007 with a One+One launch party; the USA leg will see the pair touring like rock stars as they get aboard a tour bus and gig their way around the country covering the length and breadth of America with up to five gigs a week. Following this is a month touring the UK’s hotspots, a month in Asia and Australia trailed by a full 3 months in Europe centred around Ibiza’s summer season. James and Nic will play back2back together on every show. It’ll be a multiple CD deck and laptop extravaganza of layering music, bending sounds and twisting beats to one mind-blowing effect. With gig offers pouring in from every country on planet Earth and nine Festivals already confirmed expect more to follow in early 2007!
In addition to this the duo has struck a deal with Ministry of Sound Recordings for a unique One+One album. A studio mix that will be representative of the shows, it will include several bespoke productions by James and Nic including a collaboration between the two, personal re-edits and all the usual effects and daring mixing people have grown to love them for. A spring release, the album will coincide with the tour.
