The Toneshifterz (Elie Abwi and Olcay Ertek) started in mid of 2009, but before this…
Elie produced UK Hardcore, House, trance and electro while Olcay was also producing UK Hardcore and Gabber. Then after the opportunity arose in Australia with the arrival of Q-Dance this opened up many oppurtunities for the Australian Born and bred Duo.
They decided to begin producing hardstyle together, and from then on wards, they haven’t looked back! They are bringing Australian hardstyle to a totally new level, and have now placed the country down under, on the map.
Even though they are still fairly new in the hardstyle scene, in 2009 they had a massive response to their music, gathering support from massive artists from the top… Within their first year, coming from Australia, they are now Due to be playing at Defqon1, and to be launching there European tour in October this year!
The Toneshifterz now are, and have been signed to the renowned Fusion Records and have had some massive releases that started with “Sahara”. After that they we’re honored enough to work with the talented and most awarded hardstyle artists in the scene at the moment, the ‘Noisecontrollers’ on their second release collaborating the tracks “Jaydee” and “Empire of the Sun” which both were massive hits in early 2010!
Then in May 2010 they were asked to write the Anthem for the Magic City 2010 party and also to perform an Exclusive ‘Live’ set, taking there popularity to a new level. There live set contained 17 pumping tracks all crammed into half an hour making it one of the most energetic and Fun sets to date which is loved by many across the globe. This lead to their Massive 8 track EP which was released in June 2010 containing bombs such as, “Electro shock” “Nightscape” and “Angels and Demons”.
They have also had releases on Scantraxx with there collaboration with the talented Producers ‘Bioweapon’, and also releases on Dutch Master Works in collaboration with the Aussie born and Bred Nitrouz and are now pumping release after release, taking hardstyle to a whole new level.
2010 is only the beginning of what the Toneshifterz are here to Show, and they are already becoming one of the most demanded acts at the moment in such a short amount of time. They are here to stay, and will show that hardstyle has a lot more to be achieved then many have thought!
