What's the future of DJing:
Discovery of the year:
Euphoria by Ministry Of Sound, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia - the surprise gig of the year, one of the best-sounding clubs we've heard.
Rediscovery of the year:
Carrie Skipper vs Thrillseekers 'Savanna Goes By (Myon & Shane 54 Mash-up)' - Carrie Skipper wrote such an amazing song, every time we play it, the mash-up gives us goose-bumps of the best kind.
Treated like shit and being thrown out of our dressing room at Sziget Festival in Budapest (in our home country) after a headline set because it was reserved for the 'International Acts'. It was more humiliating than awkward. Never had this kind of treatment before anywhere in the world.
Style or substance:
Substance. We believe in good songwriting above all.
We love all animals, even the ugly ones.
Already noted for their remixes, mash-ups and weekly International Departures podcast, 2011 saw the powerful throb of original single 'Futuristic' take Hungarian duo Myon & Shane 54 a step forward on the world stage. Since teaming up in 2008, Márió Égeto (Myon) and Elod Császár (Shane 54) have become the first home-grown DJs to make a mark outside of their own country, quickly entering the DJmag Top 100 and winning the support of the likes of Armin van Buuren, Andy Moor and Above & Beyond, even though Myon tells DJmag, “We don't consider our music trance”. At home, though, it hasn't been all plain sailing. “Our own country is the only place where we've had negative feedback for our DJmag Top 100 rank,” Myon explains.”We only have a small-but-dedicated following there. The majority of clubs play the most commercial house, if you live there and do something else than that, you're in trouble.” DAVID MCCARTHY
