UNDR Ctrl is hitting its groove with the signing of The Aston Shuffle to its agency roster, TIO can exclusively reveal.
The Canberra house duo of Vance Musgrove and Mikah Freeman have been making tunes and rocking parties for more than a decade, during which time they’ve been booked for many UNDR Ctrl events.
That relationship firms up with the pair coming on board at UNDR Ctrl Agency for bookings.
As DJs, producers, remixers and radio presenters, Musgrove and Freeman haven’t missed a beat since joining forces in the capital. They got early recognition for their crafty remixing skills, and went on to contribute to several iconic Ministry of Sound compilations.
Over the years, they’ve reworked tracks for Fatboy Slim, Avicii, Dizzee Rascal, Empire of the Sun, London Grammar and more, and their debut, 2011 album Seventeen Past Midnight enjoyed a warm critical response, with ‘Rolling Stone’ giving the LP a four-star review.
Their 2013 ‘Sunrise’ collaboration with fellow Australian producer and artist Tommy Trash was a smash, vaulting to No. 1 on the Beatport platform and blasting from festival main stages across the planet.
