DT709 – NiCe7
In the mid-nineties, [Ni]cola Daniele and [Ce]sare Marocco, two friends in their early teens fell in love with the art of sampling, mixing and producing beats. In 2005, they paired up for the first time as NiCe7 without any premonition that they’d become one of the most sought-after forces in tech-house, winning the genre’s Best Track at the 2011 Beatport Music Awards with their original “Point”.
Deep house is another realm that they have succeeded in, with their successful EP “back to basics” in 2012 and then scoring a chart-topping hit with their remix of Jon Cutler’s “It’s Yours” in 2013. That year they founded their record label D-Floor, an imprint dedicated to “credible and forward-thinking outputs”.
