The Presets - Downtown Shutdown

The Presets - Downtown Shutdown
Kim & Julian discovered a mutual interest in contemporary music outside of their course, they joined the instrumental, experimental band Prop, and in 2003 formed the more techno, dance focused duo The Presets.

The band became quickly recognized for their ability to fuse elements of dance music with an energy more akin to that of a rock’n’roll show. After signing with Modular Recordings in late 2003, the band released two EPs and an album ‘Beams’ (2005).

In 2008 The Presets released the chart topping album ‘Apocalypso’, selling in excess of Triple Platinum sales in Australia and featuring four hit singles, including ‘My People’ the longest charting single in Australian chart history.

The Presets have been recognized worldwide for their dynamic live performances, playing hundreds of shows domestically and internationally, including key slots at renowned international music festivals such as Glastonbury, Coachella, Exit, Melt and Splendor in The Grass.

As individuals Hamilton and Moyes have both collaborated with many other artists as songwriters, composers, producers and featured artists. Collectively they have remixed many prominent artists, as well as collaborating with Melbourne based contemporary dance company Chunky Move.

About this track...

Kim suggested we find an African choir to sing the melody in the chorus, we came across the St Paul’s Lutheran Church Choir. They were amazing. We thickened out their singing with some more singers from LA to get the rich vibe we were looking for.
