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
