Windy City based EDM Power Duo (We Are) Nexus have released their long anticipated “Shamelessly” EP, featuring their original, trance-hued single with unique orchestral production by classically trained Nick Gunn and haunting vocals from Carmen Rainier.
“Shamelessly” is not your ordinary electronic production, sporting an unusual time signature and a strong orchestral sound. Somehow even the synths sound as though they are originating from some acoustic musical device. A production like this tests the waters for change; experimenting with any and all elements that go into creating a song isn’t easy, but the results can be much better than your typical process. – Tyler Trew Your EDM
The EP includes remixes from Dave Audé, Papercha$er, Kirk Cosier, and Your EDM remix contest winner Kaleptik, as well as a club remix by (We Are) Nexus.

Hailing from Chicago, IL, (We Are) Nexus is producer/composer Nick Gunn and vocalist/lyricist Carmen Rainier. Exploding onto the EDM scene in August 2013 with their debut EP “It Feels So Good,” a cover to Sonique’s 1998 smash hit of the same name, the duo is a force to be reckoned with.
The list of accomplishments on their freshman outing was impressive, including a #1 Breakout position on Billboards Dance Club Songs, a peak position of #14 on Billboards Dance Club Songs, iTunes Top 100 Dance and Billboards Top 50 Dance/Electronic Songs. Their recent follow up single this past January, “World Around Me”, also made the iTunes Top 100 Dance and once again graced the Billboard Dance Club Songs chart. Combined with incredible radio support, such as Music Choice EDM/Dance adding the “World Around Me” original mix six times a day, proves the duo shows strength and staying power within the ever growing and competitive EDM market place.
No stranger to the music business, Gunn comes with an impressive resumé that expands multiple musical genres and roles as both a classically trained musician and producer. Gunn, having produced multiple albums selling over two million units worldwide, today finds himself as the producing and composing force behind the (We Are) Nexus sound.
Rainier, the other half of the EDM duo, has been sinking her teeth into Gunn’s productions with an approach to intelligent and clever lyric writing. “Carmen’s style and provocative approach is the mortar to what we do” says Gunn. Rainier also handles a tremendous amount of the business affairs behind (We Are) Nexus. With their studio and office located in Chicago’s famed West Loop, Rainier finds herself at the helm controlling everything from distribution to social media and how the world experiences us.
