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.
