The Aston Shuffle are a house music duo from Canberra, Australia.[1][2] They are made up of Disc jockey and electronic music producers Mikah Freeman and Vance Musgrove. As well as their DJ gigs and recordings career, they also host their own show on the ABC's Triple J on Friday nights called Friday Night Shuffle.[3]

Background[edit]

They rose to prominence with several remixes in 2006–2007 of Claude VonStroke's "The Whistler", Rocket Men's "Candy" and Chris Lake's "Carry Me Away", and released their debut single "For Everyone" in 2007 through the Ministry of Sound label Hussle Records, and was featured on the Ministry of Sound 2008 Annual.

In 2008 they became a regular feature on Ministry compilations, with remixes of Pnau's "Baby", Terry Poison's "24 Hours" (featured on So You Think You Can Dance) and dance/alternative hip-hop smash hit "Dance wiv Me" from Dizzee Rascal and Calvin Harris. They also released their second single, "Stomp Yo Shoes" that year working with Tommie Sunshine, and worked on their first compilation album for Ministry of Sound Australia, Mashed Four.

In 2009, the duo mixed the second disc of Ministry's Clubber's Guide to 2009, which also premiered their third single "Do You Want More". To close out a successful 2009, they were voted the number 3 DJs in Australia by Sony inthemix50[4] and mixed disc 2 of The 2010 Annual for Ministry of Sound, which peaked at number 1 on the iTunes albums chart. They later became the #1 DJs of inthemix50 in 2010. Their debut album was released on 15 April 2011. Their track "Your Love" features Eden Boucher of Lovers Electric on vocals, this was their first of two collaborations with the duo. On 2 February 2013, they performed as a support act in Swedish House Mafia's 'One Last Tour' in Sydney, Australia.
