The Aston Shuffle’s Vance Musgrove
THE ASTON SHUFFLE
As DJs, producers, remixers, selectors, and radio presenters, they have established themselves at the forefront of the Australian dance music scene and are establishing a growing presence on the world stage.
The duo first rose to prominence as standout remixers, with Aston Shuffle remixes of Claude Vonstroke, Empire Of The Sun, and London Grammar becoming blog sensations. Their profile grew exponentially with several contributions to the iconic Ministry Of Sound mix compilation series, and their debut album Seventeen Past Midnight was critically acclaimed, receiving a 4-star review in Rolling Stone. Their 2013 collaboration with fellow Australian producer Tommy Trash, “Sunrise”, was an era-defining record, hitting #1 on Beatport, and becoming a mainstage festival anthem across the globe. The duo took their sound further into the pop realm while still staying true to their club roots on their sophomore album Photographs, which featured the gold-selling single “Tear It Down”.
All the while, the duo have balanced their touring and studio activities with a weekly radio show. Currently in its 10th year, The Friday Night Shuffle sees The Aston Shuffle selecting, mixing, and presenting 3 hours of new release dance tracks every Friday night on renowned Australian station triple j, commanding the largest weekly audience of all specialist shows on the national station. The show gives the duo a high-profile platform to shine a light on up-and-coming talent – something they’ve also done when selecting artists to remix their own tracks, having enlisted the likes of Flume and RÜFÜS DU SOL to remix Aston Shuffle songs long before becoming some of the world’s most in-demand electronic acts.
2020 saw The Aston Shuffle add to their long list of widely-supported remixes with their epic rework of Tensnake’s “Automatic”, DJing multiple livestreamed events including Clean Bandit and Global Citizen’s House Party Against Hunger, and working on a lot of new music that fans got the first taste of in early 2021 with their remix of Torren Foot ft. Tinie Tempah & L Devine “More Life” and new single “Clouds” which featured on The Magician’s Magic Tape 100 compilation. The second half of 2021 is set to be jam-packed with multiple new singles and remixes on the way.
