Originally premiered on Your EDM, “Collide” is out NOW on Nameless Records / Universal Music Italia.
“Collide” is a mish mash of bubbly synths and crooning vocals, courtesy of Josh Money, all combined in a future beats package reminiscent of some of our favorite producers from down under. It’s the kind of upbeat, downtempo track that’s able to make you move and sway without getting too turnt. – Matt Meadows – Your EDM

Pelussje, a.k.a. James Nayler & Chiara Benelli are two Italian bass music producers and DJs born in 2004 in flaming walls of sound, burning screams and fiery stage divings. After a period of circuit bending and underground live based shows, they decided to bring back to the ring their deep love of mixer and turntables.
In the ensuing years their productions turned to more sophisticated and club-oriented mood, colored by massive basslines and the full flavor of their musical roots. Their music evolved into a more refined and mature sound, reflecting the deep upstream artistic growth that brought them to catch the attention of one of the most important tastemakers in the industry like Owsla.
Pelussje built a significant global reputation through touring Europe, North America, South Africa, Taiwan, South Korea, Mexico and Brazil, sharing the stage with such major acts as Skrillex, Crookers, Deadmau5, Steve Aoki, Congorock, Boys Noize, SebastiAn, and Zomboy.
Their dynamic and eclectic music has been released with many of the most important, international labels including ULTRA, Universal, Sony, EMI, and Nest / Owsla, receiving support from such big names as Skrillex, The Bloody Beetroots, Steve Aoki, Benny Benassi, Congorock, Joachim Garraud and many more.
Pelussje’s consistently visually stunning videos conquered the YouTube world, presenting diverse imagery, particularly with their latest videos “Salsoul Nugget If U Wanna” and “Love Is You”, off of their Salsoul & West End Remixed Vol.5 EP on ULTRA, which received high praise from not only the internet community, but Rolling Stone and MTV Clubland. They’ve been also nominated for Best New Generation Electro at the prestigious MTV Digital Days 2014 (Italy).
