The Aston Shuffle - ID Tour
38-46 Oxford St
DJs, producers, remixers, radio presenters and all round legends, The Aston Shuffle, otherwise known as Vance Musgrove and Mikah Freeman, have today announced their epic national ID Tour. Set to kick off on May 4 at Yah Yah's in Melbourne, before moving through Perth, Surfers Paradise, Maroochydore, Noosaville, Hobart, Launceston, Sydney, and wrapping in Canberra at Mr. Wolf on May 26.
Most artists go on tour to promote music that's already been released — but The Aston Shuffle who make the rules as they go — are switching things up for this run. As a true exclusive for fans, the ID Tour will be a chance to catch new music from the duo, well before its release. Vance Musgrove gives fans an insight into what to expect from the tour, saying, "We've been working hard in the studio on quite a bit of new music which will be coming out later in 2018 and beyond, including some collaborations with some of our favourite artists of late.
We're psyched to be able to play these new tracks to our Australian fans months before they're released, and to be seeing the reactions to them first in the clubs, rather than online. We haven't even settled on the names of some of the tracks yet, which gave us the idea for the name of the tour — when fans are putting together a tracklist of a DJ's set, unreleased tracks are usually called 'IDs'."
After a huge couple of years, the ID Tour is also a bit of a victory lap for the duo. The last 12 months saw them successfully juggle appearances at Tomorrowland, H Ibiza, and renowned Brooklyn club Output, alongside the release of two new tracks on The Magician's Potion Records, 'Pass You By' and 'Alpha Love', all while presenting one of the most popular specialist programs on triple j, The Friday Night Shuffle.
But no matter how packed their schedule, The Aston Shuffle will always make time for touring, with Musgrove enthusing, "We're beyond excited. It's always fun to get out there, and it's been a long time since we've been to some of the cities we're hitting, so we're champing at the bit. It's especially exciting for me, I'm living in New York now so I'm really looking forward to playing to Australian crowds again...we're going right across the country, hitting some smaller towns in addition to the major cities."
