Nicole 11:11 is the latest in a long line of Detroit-bred talent to take on an international reputation. Championed for her combination of being hip, trendy and classically sexy looks with a relentless pursuit of hardness, Nicole serve's up an eclectic mixture of intelligent driving progressive house with a techno sounding set. Nicole, a native of the motor city and techno capitol of the world, Detroit, MI. has an interesting history in the music and entertainment business. She has played with artists such as 'Sean Paul', 'Busta Rhythms', 'Bootsy Collins', 'Digital Underground', and the 'Beastie Boys' to name a few. In addition to working with these all star talents, she toured all around the world as a member of George Clinton's 'P-Funk All Stars' band. Nicole has performed everywhere from the Lollapalooza main stage to European hot-spots, and Japanese Arenas. Her stint with P-Funk has been documented by Rolling Stone, Spin, Guitar School, and Entertainment Weekly, gaining national as well as international recognition for her talent. Nicole 11:11 was also introduced with a featured role in the 20th Century Fox's 'PCU' and followed up with a co-starring role in the film 'Pandora Directive' starring Kevin McCarthy. Then off to Hawaii for the filming of 'Baywatch'. Nicole was increasingly inspired and drawn to the underground scene and electronic music subculture and has since taken up production and djing. Nicole's first produced release set dance floors a blaze. Releasing on DJ Hardware's Pure Music Recordings imprint,'Out of Control', is a moody and tribal progressive journey with just the right intensity, atmosphere, and attitude. This track was a really fresh take on the progressive house ideal. Future works include a mixed Compilation CD, a second single for the Pure Music imprint, and a tour with DJ Hardware. Here is a recent review on the current Nicole 11:11 CD available on CD Baby.. She's definitely earned her stripes. Though she's easy on the eyes, her music backs up her looks, relying more on heavy beats, funky grooves and metallic vocals instead of nice cheekbones. Nicole is closer to a hard-core techno groove sound - jagged, yet very danceable. She borrows equally from KMFDM, Lords of Acid and Ministry as she does from Tricky and DJ Shadow. On 11:11, which I take to be her debut ... she comes out blazing on 'I Promise,' before dipping into the trance pool of 'Kill4Me' and bumping the rpms up to the ceiling on 'Stigmata.' With 11:11, Nicole just might be Detroit's best kept secret.' - (C. Kirk - Real Detroit)
