THE ROOFTOP: What can you tell us about your first encounter with your Earthboogie partner Izaak Gray?
NICOLA: Izaak and I met in London when I was DJing at a fashion launch event in Shoreditch. Izaak is a huge sound nerd and runs East London Audio, specializing in bespoke speakers, PA kit etc. He was providing the audio setup for this event. We developed a very close music relationship from there and Earthboogie formed a few years later...
Looking back, how do you explain that first connection gave birth to such an ambitious musical project?
We first connected over my DJ set from that evening and we also bonded over our passion for high fidelity sound, warehouse parties... It took us years of getting into each other’s head and sharing music daily until we were totally in sync. We love positive music and dancing and that's exactly what we produce as Earthboogie.
