Australian tastemakers The Aston Shuffle have teamed up with hotly-tipped UK producer TCTS for their brand new collab, ‘Back To Me’.
Featuring Melbourne-based, Macedonian-born vocalist Blush’ko, ‘Back To Me’ is a tension-filled, late-night tribal thumper and is set for release worldwide via 7Wallace.
Starting its life in Melbourne whilst TCTS was on a national tour with The Aston Shuffle in their home country of Australia, ‘Back To Me’ then went on a year-long international journey between studio sessions in London.
‘We had the pleasure of meeting TCTS when he came over to Australia for our inaugural Only 100s tour,’ explain Mikah and Vance from The Aston Shuffle. ‘We managed to fit in a few days of studio time in Melbourne in between shows. One of those days was with singer/songwriter Blush’ko. We finished the initial demo that day and we all felt like we had something pretty special.’
TCTS continues, ‘We left the studio in Melbourne with a demo, and over the next months would grab studio time in London whenever Vance and Mikah were over here. The three of us live in Australia, New York, and London and half the fun of this record has been the journey it’s been on.’
The track also has a very personal story behind the lyrics from Blush’ko. He explains, ‘At the time I was feeling super down about a relationship I was in. She knew how to cut me down but l still wanted to have her by my side. When I walked into the studio and heard what the boys were working on, it kind of just came out!’
