Toneshifterz (Elie Abwi and Olcay Ertek) born in Australia and the Netherlands, started in August 2009.
Elie produced Hardcore, House, Trance and Electro while Olcay was also producing Hardcore and Gabber. Then after the opportunity arose in Australia with the arrival of Q-Dance this opened up many opportunities 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 played at Defqon.1.
Toneshifterz 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 their 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 their 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 was only the beginning of what the Toneshifterz have shown, and they have already become one of the most demanded acts at the moment in such a short amount of time. They are here to stay, and in 2011 they are making a big move to the Netherlands and will show that Hardstyle has a lot more to be achieved then many have thought!
