VISION SKY ROOM
| MYON & SHANE54 |
Myon & Shane 54 might not have a long history, yet they managed to achieve some notable success in terms of productions and / or remixes, besides weren’t short of fully-blown A-list Dj support in the past few months of their existence.
The duo started separately: Shane 54 & Myon were already established artists on their own right when they joined forces. Remixes for Oakenfold, Above & Beyond or Vandit on one side, a triple release as an introduction for Black Hole on the other. All entities were gone, resulting a “real” band, not just two guys who happened to work together for a few moments.
“We have this incredible musical bond” – says Myon, the 24-year old Hungarian from the South of the country, Szeged. – “Either of us starts a musical sentence, the other will finish it like it was meant to be. It’s weird, but very useful: we’re very effective together.”Their music speaks for itself: the guys scored a Beatport Number One remix (Andy Moor & Carrie Skipper – So Much More), and a Number One Single on Audiojelly (Vampire’s superb Gareth Emery remix, but their own version was number two as well). Within a couple of weeks’ time three of their remixes were voted “Record Of The Week” on Above & Beyond’s “Trance Around The World” radio show, where they been just awarded “Guestmix of the Year” for their 30-minute mini-epic, that has clearly caused quite a stir on the TATW forums. One of their signature songs, “Not A Lot Left” (with its fairly ironic vocal sample) also was a big record on Anjunabeats: it ended up on Above & Beyond’s 2008 compilation, “Anjunabeats Vol. 6.”
According to the guys themselves the track was one of the highlights of their summer sets. The world’s number 4 dj trio seems to be really fond on them, just as most of the other guys in the top 10.
This was only the beginning though: after being featured on Armin Van Buuren’s ASOT 2008 compilation (and countless times on his radio show), Myon & Shane 54 has been asked to remix “Never Say Never” for his new artist album “Imagine The Remixes”.
”The challenge is tough: your music not only have to meet the standards and expectations of the number one dj of the world, but it actually has to be so good, he could call it his own.” – Shane 54 agrees they both had a hard time finishing it. – “We made 4 different versions, just to ditch them all immediately for the 5th. A lot of struggle went into this one.”
These days the guys working on something big again: they’ve been offered to make a mix compilation for Armada, Armin Van Buuren’s smashing international dance label. The tracklist is full of exclusive material, mostly their own takes of tracks they like, some of them never heard before or haven’t been available anywhere else.
