NERD have vowed to bring a piece of "Miami energy" to London for their forthcoming gig.

Miami natives Pharrell Williams, Chad Hugo and Shay Haley will be heading into the capital to play an exclusive show at the Troxy on November 27 for the Smirnoff Nightlife Exchange Project, which sees the best of the Florida party city in the UK.

"We're going to bring the Miami nightlife over for sure - it's good that it's raining and cold over there, because we will bring remnants of Miami's characteristics; we're going to party, and we'll bring a bit of sun and beach over," said Pharrell.

"We love London, everything it is and everything it represents. It's going to be a nice, fun, clean - and responsible - time. It's going to be really exciting."

Shay added: "In Miami, you can party until the sun comes up. The music is great, it's on top with the warm weather and crystal blue water."

Pharrell chipped in: "The only thing that's missing from the Miami experience that we can't bring with us is the Big Pink restaurant, where we would often go for breakfast."

NERD, who will be joined by BBC Radio 1 DJ Zane Lowe and DJ Jaguar Skills, will perform tracks from their new album Nothing as well as hits She Wants To Move, Lapdance and Rock Star.

"We sometimes have our friends come on stage but our friends for this will be the audience," said Pharrell.

:: NERD will be playing alongside Zane Lowe and Jaguar Skills live at the grand finale of the Smirnoff Nightlife Exchange Project at the Troxy in London, where 14 countries are swapping nightlife on the same night. Visit for details.
