It’s rare that an electronic duo who’re as handsome as the members of VIMES, as talented and as culturally exposed as Azhar and Julian came come together and create something so smooth and astral. Azhar was born in Nigeria to humanitarian workers of Indian descent who grew up all over Europe. When he moved to Cologne, Germany to study visual arts, he met his musical partner Julian. As you can comfortably assume, VIMES was born.
Since, they’ve received international recognition for their unique brand of electronic dance music, combining live instruments with electronic elements and a stirring visual live show made for shaking your bottom nonstop. In just a year’s time, VIMES have supported Hot Chip on tour, headlined sets all across Europe, as well as numerous continental festivals including Dockville, Eurosonic, First We Take Berlin, Reeperbahn Festival and DJ sets at Pop and Melt! Festivals. They were also invited to play at this year’s SXSW and Canadian Music Week, unfortunately neither of these happened due to visa complications. Don’t worry guys. Things will work out next year. We can feel it!
