Twin sisters, Rae and Nicole, known together as RaeCola, are DJ’s and producers making a wave in the House scene. With their underground, booty bass sound, these ladies add edge and a new era feel to each set with their beats and connection with the crowd. Hailing from Chicago, the birthplace of House music, RaeCola pays homage to the foundation of the genre, while paving the road for what’s to come.
As they begin tailoring their original catalog, Rae and Nicole have put together their music interests and talents. Growing up on the Southside, the twins were introduced to House at a young age and instantly fell in love with the contagious drum beats. As they grew older, they combined their love for House with other eclectic music they enjoyed to create their own sound within the scene.
Today, they specialize in producing self-renowned Ghetto Tech House, fusing “Ghetto House” with “Tech House” to create irresistible drumbeats, slapping basslines, and enticing vocals. With musical influences like DJ Slugo, Ghettoblaster and DJ Godfather, RaeCola emulates a juke style while incorporating their own new era, signature sound.
With a passion for connection and love, they raise the vibrations and energy with each set, encouraging all to have fun with no judgment and with unconditional love for their neighbor.
More from RaeCola on the Bezerk EP:
“The title ‘Bezerk’ came as a take on the word “berserk” which means to be wild, unrestrained, full of excitement and recklessly defiant. All of which describe the energy behind our artist duo and ourselves. We’ve always lived our lives striving to push boundaries. From moving to LA on our own at 17 years old to later quitting our jobs to pursue a future in music, we’ve always followed our gut and dreams despite the risk.”
“We thought ‘Bezerk’ was the perfect album title to set the bar for where we see our journey going. Our project has flavors of our hometown Chicago combined with a West Coast feel. For the title track “Bezerk” we made wonky synths that add an experimental tone to our groovy track. Our second track “Juke That Zerk” has elements of ghetto house and juke featuring drums and vocal chops inspired by artists like DJ Rashad, DJ Deeon and DJ Slugo.”
