Multitasking can be quite easy, if all the tasks are fundamentally enjoyable. Just ask The Aston Shuffle.

The Australian duo—Vance Musgrove and Mikah Freeman—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 an ever-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 on the 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 Sunrise, a 2013 collaboration with fellow Aussie Tommy Trash, hit #1 on Beatport. 2014’s Photographs debuted at #12 on the Australian album chart and demonstrated the duo’s ability to lean into the pop realm while still keeping the sound cool and club-worthy. Their newest output marks a return to the sound closest to their hearts—house.

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

In addition to producing, Musgrove and Freeman have established themselves as ace selectors. Their weekly triple j show, The Friday Night Shuffle, reaches a million listeners every week and is the most popular Friday night radio program in Australia. The program gives listeners another snapshot of Musgrove and Freeman’s long track record of picking emerging talent. Acts such as Flume and RÜFÜS DU SOL, now among the world’s most exciting electronic acts in 2016, were tapped for remixes – and as a tour support act in the case of RÜFÜS DU SOL – when they were still fledgling projects.
