Australian power house music duo, The Aston Shuffle, are debuting their new single Everything I Got. The Aussies played by the likes of Oliver Heldens, Don Diablo & Zonderling to name a few also have a few tracks coming down the pipeline! We got a chance to catch up with them this week to ask them a few questions about their music--
Where did your interest in music stem from?
I started playing piano when I was 3 years old, so I pretty much can't remember a time when I wasn't involved in music in some way. But it was all about classical music until I discovered dance music around the age of 13, and I pretty much became instantly obsessed.
What do you love about creating music?
It's immensely satisfying to make music and hear from fans that they really connect with our music, or to see a crowd sing along to something we've made as well. That payoff is so amazing and never gets old, it's definitely something that drives us to keep making music.
What was your inspiration behind creating 'Everything I Got'?
We've been wanting to make a piano-led track for a while, there's lots of house tracks with big pianos at the moment, and we really love that sound, so pianos were a must for this track. Click here to check out our new track.
What do you love most about performing at festivals?
Festivals always have such an amazing vibe, you can really play differently at festivals to club shows. Crowds are usually more "up for it" I think, they're really enthusiastic, and that always gives festival crowds an amazing energy.
What festivals are you performing in this summer?
Where can fans see you perform live?We're playing at Tomorrowland in Belgium again this summer, on The Magician's Potion stage. We played on that stage last year as well, it was so much fun! We've been working on a lot of new music as well, and we can't wait to play some of those new tracks for the Tomorrowland crowd.
How would you sum up your music in two words? Big fun!
What feelings do you associate with your music?We're always trying to create something special with our tracks, it's hard to put into words I guess but a sense that a track is something special is what we're always striving for with our music.
