“It’s a great time to be a DJ,” say Myon & Shane 54 in answer to whether 2013 has been a good year for them. The mash-up-loving melodic trance duo have every reason to feel positive, particularly with the launch of their new label, Ride Recordings, which has been a big focus.

“Launching our label was very important to us, as we wanted to have total control over what we were releasing,” say the duo. “Now we set the release schedules and put out material that really excites us.”


As well as the launch of the label — which has already notched up an impressive five releases — Myon and Shane have worked on several collaborations and big remix projects this year, including their chunky electro take on Stafford Brothers’ collaborative track with Lil’ Wayne and Christina Milian, ‘Hello’.
Looking at the big picture, the duo are once again optimistic about how 2013 has played out for them.

“Dance music is popular everywhere,” they say, “and we’re one of the lucky few to travel and play all over the world. Best of all, we added a lot more fans. We love every one of them.”
