Oxford Hustlers (Australia)
Late 2009 saw the formation of the Oxford Hustlers, and 2010 was a killer year solidifying and establishing their presence on the world dance music production and DJ scene. Now well into 2011 with their debut single “Love U More” with Katherine Ellis released in November 2010, along with a string of remixes under their belt (including some for A-List vocalists), their fire is still blazing alight, and doesn’t look like it’ll die down any time soon!
Based in Sydney Australia, the Oxford Hustlers (aka Murray Hood and Brett Austin), have produced remixes for some of the world’s biggest house artists including Inaya Day, Peyton, and more recently the international sensation Wynter Gordon and her brand new single ‘Til Death’. They are also signed to the popular Fierce Angel label, and have been busy in the studio pumping out a cluster of mixes for the label’s roster of artists. Chart success came early for the Hustlers, with their debut remix of Kimberly Davis’ “Get Up” reaching #12 on the US Billboard Dance Chart, and her follow up single which the boys also remixed peaked at #9! Their remix of Mike Cruz & Inaya Day’s “Never Had Another Love” shot up to #10 on the Australian ARIA Club Chart.
Excellent results also came from their debut single Love U More. Multiple #1 spots on the daily Gaydar Radio Your Choice Chart saw the single become an instant favourite, and the single also debuted on the UK Commercial Pop Club Chart in the top 30, peaking at #24.
Outside of the studio, the Oxford Hustlers fly the Australian flag as resident DJs for Mark Doyle’s popular club brand and record label, Fierce Angel. They are constantly in demand for Australia’s major parties, and more recently have sparked the interest of some of Asia’s well known promoters.
Between them, they have played at most major events around the country, including multiple times at Sydney’s infamous Sydney Gay & Lesbian Mardi Gras After Party, Big Gay Day, Rogue Dance, Homesexual, Matinee, and have supported artists including Freemasons, Katherine Ellis, Wayne G and Chris Willis just to name a few.
Both Brett & Murray bring similar influences to the duo from a broad range of artists such as the Good Guys, Soul Avengerz, The Jinks, Milk & Sugar, David Penn, Erick Morillo, and Thomas Gold to name a handful. Whilst their productions to date have shown to be diverse in styles from big room progressive stompers through to funky vocal house, their versatility also shines through on the decks in the same respect. Whatever the style, expect a set jam packed with funky goodness and delicious surprises!
