About Cosmic Gate
In 2011 the duo released ‘Wake Your Mind’ – their fifth artist album. It produced ‘Be Your Sound’ – a release which UK EDM bible MIXMAG said: “finally unseats ‘Fire Wire’ as Cosmic Gate’s best-known-for track”. The track scored an IDMA nomination in 2012, with the JES-sung ‘Flying Blind’ following suit at the awards a year later. Such was the response to the album and its singles that in February of 2013 a multimedia Deluxe Edition was compiled. This brought together for the first time all of the ‘Wake Your Mind’ tracks, a 360° remix compendium and the album’s celebrated singles videos.
Through ‘Wake Your Mind’s title, Nic & Bossi had communicated a belief in border-free electronic music to fans. Its message was embraced by untold thousands of clubbers and music lovers around the world, subsequently turning into a groundswell movement. The #WYM tag was widely adopted as the abbreviation-of-choice for those wishing to display a more flexible, less tribal outlook to electronic music.
In the second half of 2013 Cosmic Gate added other significant dimensions to Wake Your Mind, further galvanizing the #WYM effect. Following rave receptions to a string of sold out Wake Your Mind In Concert gigs they launched Wake Your Mind Records. Attached to the Armada Label group, it brought yet greater scope to its core ethos.
