Iio Feat. Nadia Ali’s “Exit 110”

May 21, 2011

You’ll remember Iio from the oldie “Rapture” which was released ten years ago! (Also in honor of today ((Judgement Day)) I figured this post would be appropriate). Anyway, I was always a huge fan of Iio and loved pretty much every release. Iio is Markus Moser and Nadia Ali and was a NYC based house music group responsible for many house and trance oldies and bombs! Again this is another collaboration that I grew up on and IS without a doubt responsible for Nadia Ali’s huge success in the EDM world. After releasing a few singles and waiting out a couple delays, Markus and Nadia released their debut album “Poetica” in 2005. “Poetica” featured their huge hits like “Rapture”, “Smooth”, and my favorite “At The End”. Nadia Ali went off to pursue her solo career and the group eventually faded away, besides the remix album released in 2007.

Now Markus Moser and Nadia Ali have teamed up again to bring another whole new album called “Exit 110”, but after listening to it I have to say I am a little disappointed. There are some tracks that are good and many with the potential to be good if it gets remix treatment. Some of the tracks though completely fell short. I honestly think this album will be so much better if it gets a remix album, or at least some remixed singles. One track that really stands out from the rest and is the first single from the album is “It’ll Be Like” which definitely has that old school NYC Iio sound. Check it out.

  1. They haven’t teamed up again. Moser has simply used material from the time Ali was still a part of iiO. He initially planned to release the album in 2008. Personally, I find this album average and a desperate attempt to gain attention and earn some moolah now that Ali is getting more and more prominent.

    Nadia has never promoted or even mentioned the album and when asked if she is collaborating with iiO, she simply said she is focusing on her solo career.


    • wow interesting. i agree with you on how the album is pretty average. thanks for the heads up and help!
