twin beats - NervoHow Nervo are fighting hard to break into the boys’ club
Mim and Liv Nervo signed a music publishing deal at 18, but despite writing hits for the likes of Kelly Rowland and Kylie, they suffered years of knockbacks as performers.
Then, in 2009, on the suggestion of David Guetta, the club-loving sisters moved into DJing. Between 2013 and 2014, they earned $9m behind the decks, and last year the twins, now 29, released an EDM-flavoured album.
The key to their success? “We enjoy working. If it’s three in the morning, it’s fine to do emails.” It’s true: if you love what you do, you never work a day in your life.
