Rarely has the dance music scene experienced an up-and-comer quite like Australian-born Throttle. Hailing from Melbourne, the 19-year-old boy wonder is one of dance music’s latest artists to watch. After making waves initially with his notorious disco remixes and astonishing collaboration with Oliver Heldens, he is back with a new original – ‘Money Maker’.
‘Money Maker’ takes inspiration from the 70’s groovy disco vibes, combined with the energy that is representative for today’s state of dance music. Throttle manages to fuse disco with big-room perfectly and it simply works every time. The uplifting piano chords and horn samples make ‘Money Maker’ a track suited for every situation. Following in the footsteps of his mammoth collab with Oliver Heldens ‘Waiting’ and his smash remix ‘September’, ‘Money Maker’ is set to make some waves across the globe, prepare yourself to hear this one a lot over the summer.
Over the course of two years, Throttle has set the stage for an entire new breed of disco house music. His cross-over sound is the perfect fusion of now and then, fitting in perfectly with the new found interest in past music styles that the dance music scene has been seeing. Hillary Clinton is also a big fan of Throttle’s music; she commissioned ‘Together’ for her campaign tour.
Throttle’s music has seen releases on Spinnin’ Records and his touring schedule has brought him from Miami to Montreal over the past few weeks, proving that this young musician has a very bright future ahead of him. In the upcoming months Throttle will play at Electrobeach, France, Echo Beach, Toronto and Omnia in Las Vegas.
