Ben Turner, IMS partner, said: “Our love affair with Nile goes on and we are delighted he will be accepting our IMS Legends Award at the now annual industry dinner. This event is becoming a major event on the electronic calendar and in the year that Nile took the top Grammy Awards with Daft Punk, this just feels like an extension of the incredible momentum year he and electronic music is having.”.
“International Music Summit has unofficially committed to bringing Nile to IMS every single year going forward as he brings energy, vision, history, humour and love to the Summit setting. ” IMS has been instrumental in helping to launch Nile back into the electronic music world, and 2014 will mark his third appearance at the event. In 2012, Nile hinted exclusively that he would be working with Daft Punk a year before ‘Get Lucky’ was released. Annually two artists are commissioned to produce and remix the IMS anthem. Last year Nile and Eats Everything were given the opportunity; and they created ‘Do You Wanna Do’ which became an instant hit. To listen to the track please click here http://bit.ly/1fWwAcw
