Thankyou City are Brent and Scott Mirams, based out of Melbourne, Australia.
Rising from the ashes of popular former trio Continuum, the sibling duo are no strangers to the Australian dance scene, having performed live across the country for many years along with releasing on labels across the globe.
Yet with this fresh project comes a renewed focus, and the pair have wasted no time in leaving their mark on dancefloors across the East Coast, with an explosive live show and innovative and sophisticated sound that touches on all corners of modern dance music and beyond, without ever pigeonholing itself into genre or sub-genre.
Deep, slick and always injected with a healthy amount of wonk, Thankyou City is best described as minimal in all the right places and maximal in all the others, always with an emotive undercurrent and an exciting, unique groove that separates them from the countless names that populate the global techno and house spectrum today.
Finding a key place on the roster of hometown imprint Chameleon Recordings alongside names like Jamie Stevens and Steve Ward, their music has been remixed by international luminaries such as Tom Clark and Fiord, as well as featuring on the Antix – Best Of My Sets compilation on Iboga and on labels such as Scrambled Recordings, Pinksilver Digital, Open Records and Subsonic Music.
A recent live mix was also featured on global online radio powerhouse Proton as a feature show in March 2012, as well as their music supported by some of the biggest in the business including Magda, Christian Smith, Desyn Masiello and Secret Cinema.
Fresh from a massive summer run which included billings on many of Australia’s major festivals including Rainbow Serpent, Shine On, Subsonic Music Festival and Strawberry Fields, the boys are now hard at work in the studio prepping themselves for another string of original releases and their first European summer tour.
If the exhausted, yet ecstatic dancefloors across the country last festival season are anything to go by, it won’t be long until the rest of the world wakes up to what is the most exciting force to emerge from the Australian underground in a long time, too.
Work with artists like Antix/Fiord, Tom Clark, Arnaud Le Texier, Opiuo, Solead, SQL, Steve Ward, Jamie Stevens, Uone, Oblique Industries and more
