As­ton Shuf­fle set to light up dance floor

Whitsunday Times - - CHILL -

THE week­end can’t get any bet­ter than when the As­ton Shuf­fle plays your lo­cal on a Fri­day night.

They’ll be hit­ting Airlie Beach in the form of Mikah Free­man, when he brings the band to life with a DJ set at Mag­nums Ho­tel.

The As­ton Shuf­fle have been mak­ing mu­sic to­gether for a decade, and in this time have es­tab­lished them­selves as fore­run­ners of the Aus­tralian scene.

Equally skilled as pro­duc­ers, remix­ers, se­lec­tors, and men­tors, the guys have forged a grow­ing pres­ence on the world stage since meet­ing in their na­tive Can­berra.

The duo rose to promi­nence on the power of their stand­out remixes, and quickly be­came reg­u­lars on­the famed Min­istry of Sound com­pi­la­tions.

The As­ton Shuf­fle remixes of tracks by artists in­clud­ing Claude Von­stroke, Lon­don Gram­mar, and Em­pire of the Sun were bl­o­go­sphere sen­sa­tions and they’ve only con­tined to get bet­ter.

Their new­est out­put marks a re­turn to the sound clos­est to their hearts – house mu­sic.

It’s some­thing that hits close to home for the duo.

“We wrote house mu­sic when we first started out, and even though we’ve gone through a lot of paths dur­ing our evo­lu­tion, the thing that still ex­cites us most is house mu­sic,” Free­man said.

Their new­est tracks plug in neatly to the world­wide house re­nais­sance and it suits The As­ton Shuf­fle fine.

“Au­di­ences can hear it when you’re hav­ing fun in the stu­dio,” Free­man said. “Ul­ti­mately, it’s about mak­ing peo­ple dance.”

It’s go­ing to be a mas­sive set at Mag­nums Ho­tel. Don’t miss it.
