Throttle

Meet the man who’s single-handedly reinventing disco. It’s not often that you find a 19-year-old producer referencing Earth, Wind and Fire as his favourite act. That’s exactly the case with explosive new talent Throttle, the teenager from Australia who’s racked up an alarming list of achievements over the past three years and who – with the official backing of Earth, Wind and Fire – is set to scale the heights even further with new single “September”.

“Dirty Disco” pioneer Throttle is the only artist ever to have been allowed by the band to use original music from their body of work, a fact that may surprise more mainstream media unfamiliar with his work. Yet in an embarrassingly short space of time and at a ferocious pace, the young Australian is rising to the top armed with advanced studio finesse, his beloved guitar and a clear idea of where dance music needs to go. Throttle is not just the new kid on the block – he is the future of the genre and beyond – way, way beyond.

In a rapid yet organic trajectory, it was Throttle’s 2013 Launchpad “Inspire” video that caught the attention of global music media; the ensuing viral tsunami – almost 5 million views to date – rocketing him onto the radar. It wasn’t long before Avicii took notice, enlisting Throttle to remix his hit single “You Make Me”. Soon after, the remix was released as an official re-do, premiering through Rolling Stone and receiving huge tastemaker acclaim. Throttle swiftly took the #1 spot on the Hype Machine, peaking at #12 on the Beatport Charts.

His second Hype Machine #1 came in the shape of British crooner Sam Smith’s “Stay With Me”, securing over 2 million SoundCloud plays and expanding his legion of international fans. Production success quickly translated to the live stage, with two years of main stage duties at Australia’s Future Music Festival and support duties for Avicii under his belt, fitted in around his high school studies. July 2015 saw him release original single “Together” featuring David Spekter on vocals through Ash Pournouri’s PRMD imprint. Clocking up almost 2.5million plays on Spotify and over half a million views on YouTube in little over a month. Add to that his remix of Conrad Sewell’s “Hold Me Up” being used on primetime ABC drama series “Nashville” and the scale of Throttle’s early impact and reach beyond the confines of dance music becomes ever clearer.

With Throttle vs. Earth, Wind and Fire “September” set for release on Ultra Music November 13th worldwide, these final months of 2015 will propel Throttle into his next chapter and in doing so, give the world a new era of music that brings the soul, the funk and the musicality back to the dance floor, the radio, the factory floor, the kitchen, the car, the festival, the schoolyard and more.
