    • Cosmic Gate Announce Release for ‘MOSAIIK Chapter Two’ cosmic-gate-mosaiik-chapter-two

      Sometimes you can be having too much fun! ‘Chapter One’ of Cosmic Gate’s ‘MOSAIIK’ album series touched off a post-lockdown tour, bigger and more extensive than anyone (not least Nic & Bossi!) could’ve imagined. A subsequent pinch on studio time, and … well … you can guess the rest! Promise is a promise is a promise though and the GRAMMY-nominated act are delighted to start the new year with the announcement of the now-imminent arrival of ‘MOSAIIK Chapter Two’. March 3 isn’t that far away, but it’ll seem much closer still when you hear what Nic & Bossi have in store for the interim! First out the ‘Cosmic Gate’s gate is ‘MOSAIIK Chapter Two’s teaser trailer, which is online now. Through it, Cosmic Gate revealed that ‘MOSAIIK’ will spread its format wings to include, not just digital and streaming versions, but also a double CD and a limited-edition double vinyl (naturally including both Chapters). You can pre-save/order here now. Next, you’ll need to put a big save-the-date mark in the calendar for Feb 15, as Nic & Bossi are set to perform another of their acclaimed Livestreams. This time their two-hour set will be coming from Ibiza, where – backdropped by the magnetising sight (and just plain magnetic!) Es Vedra isle, the boys will be premiering much of the previously unheard music from ‘Chapter Two’. Hot on the heels of the Livestream will come the release of not one, but two new singles, before ‘MOSAIIK Chapter Two’ makes its full appearance on March 3. Pre-order/save the highly anticipated MOSAIIK Chapter Two album here.
