Shiloh & Luke Chable @ Brown Alley – August 12th
Words can’t describe how excited I am to be apart of this event. Both Shiloh and Luke Chable have been huge influences to not only the type of music I play when I DJ, but also to the type of music I listen to in general. They pretty much single handedly got me into the whole progressive sound and have been responsible for some of the best prog-house music in the world!
For any keen, I have a select few $15 early birds – drop me an email if you’d like one! jslyde[at]substancesounds[dot]net
Substance Sounds and LockNLoad are proud to present Justin Moreh, one half of Canadian duo Shiloh, and Melbourne’s own Luke Chable in an exclusive three hour back-to-back retrospective performance.
Having never toured or performed in Australia, Shiloh have been somewhat of an elusive act to Australian clubbers until now. With over 8 years of success at the forefront of progressive music, it’s hard to believe that neither of the brother duo have ever made it down to Australia, especially considering their close ties with Melbourne progressive kingpin Luke Chable.
Taking time out from their collaborative rock project, EMPIRE, Luke and Justin are set to deliver what will be one of their last performances before they knuckle down to work on the release of the debut EMPIRE album. Needless to say, for all self respecting progressive fans, this is an experience that may never be repeated and is definitely not to be missed!
Joining forces for the first time, Substance Sounds and LockNLoad will transform Brown Alley into a progressive house wonderland. Not one corner will be cut in order to deliver a memorable experience for all. A top of the line sound-system tuned to prog-perfection will ensure that the quality of sound is of the highest caliber. With a keen nod towards the vibe of yesteryear, a full color laser display will be in effect, provided and controlled by Melbourne based laserist pHotonCulture (aka JaseFOS). World renowned VJ, vdmo Kstati, will also be in the visual cock-pit, projecting onto large screens throughout the venue to complete this audio visual assault.

SHILOH (Canada / Baroque)
8 years into their collective career as Shiloh the Moreh brothers need no introduction. In such a fast paced high turn-over industry Shiloh is a godfather to the latest incarnation of the progressive dance music scene without a doubt. In fact, you’d be hard pressed to find a progressive house DJ or artist that doesn’t cite Shiloh as an inspiration and influence.
Shiloh LiveShiloh’s rise to the top came fast and furiously with their very first single, “Will U Ever Come Around“, signed as the theme to a reality UK TV series and was one of the biggest dance releases of 2003–getting hammered by Sasha and pretty much every one else for that matter. The progressive breaks genre that had taken over at that time was championed by Shiloh and you couldn’t crack a magazine or e-article about the scene that didn’t mention that fact. 2007’s “Café Del Mariachi” by the duo is another highly notable release–one of the biggest records of that year, getting constant play from Sasha for months. “Cafe Del Mariachi” firmly entered the cannon of all time great progressive house releases.
As producers Shiloh are an icon of the dance music scene. Their discography has grown too numerous to keep track of with well over 100 entries of originals, remixes, compilation appearances and video game credits. They’ve done remixes for EMI and Global Underground, been commissioned by Jaguar Motorcars, and their music has made it into a handful of Sony Playstation games. Their fans include Sasha, Paul Van Dyk, Tiesto, Armin VanBurren, Hernan Cattaneo, Paul Oakenfold etc. who have all given heavy support regularly playing Shiloh’s tracks for almost a decade. Their music has been remixed by greats like Nick Warren and their mix compilation appearances resemble a who’s who list.
Shiloh’s full length artist album “Bleed” was named DJ Mag’s “Album of the Month” receiving 5/5 stars, praised as “little short of magical” and compared to dance music legends Orbital for album track “Melt”. The praise continues on with M8 Mag’s 8/8 and EQ Mag’s 5/5. “‘Bleed’ is arguably one of the most anticipated album releases in recent memory. No doubt that Shiloh with ‘Bleed’ has created an album that will earn them a place in the top of the leader board between BT, Hybrid and Way Out West. I can’t praise this album enough, the quality and the pure pleasure of listening to this album will mesmerize you.” (Clubbing Magazine)
Shiloh’s BBC Radio 1 mix on Annie Nightengale’s show (one of the most listened to radio shows in the world) went off to massive praise. Shiloh are in the highest demand as DJ’s and regularly play in all the far reaching corners of the globe, taking top billing at some of the best clubs, parties, and festivals around the world in Europe, Asia, Africa, and North America–headlining to as many as 12,000 people at Russia’s DJ Parade Festival.
Shiloh’s illustrious journey through this scene hasn’t been driven by marketing specialists or press juggernauts. Their success hasn’t been fueled by gimmicks. In fact, one thing has spearheaded their career and one thing alone… their music. It’s this fact that has made Shiloh an undeniably revered treasure to all progressive-minded dance music fans–a sentiment that has withstood the test of time and will continue to for many years to come.
LUKE CHABLE (Lostep / Trojan Records)
Luke Chable has been at the forefront of the international dance music scene for almost a decade. Since his first release, ‘Accelerator’ (under the moniker Traveller presents Quest) which sold out of four pressings and appeared on no less than eight compilations around the world, Luke hasn’t looked back.
It wasn’t long before Luke had a plethora of original releases under his belt. Club hits like ‘Eat Static’, ‘Sealer’s Cove’, ‘Midnight In Cyberfunk’ and ‘Bitter & Twisted’ were standouts. The quality of Luke’s songwriting and production skills was soon recognised by DJs across the planet and his tracks became regular favourites with the likes of Deep Dish, Sasha, John Digweed and Danny Howells. Following on from this support, John Digweed signed Luke’s smash hit ‘Melburn to his Bedrock label. This in turn put Luke on the global map and set him up for his overseas success.
Luke’s defining moment on the international scene came from a collaboration with Danny Bonnici from seminal Australian electronic act Nubreed. ‘Ride’, a melodic, progressive house bomb was signed to major dance label Alternative Route and the rest is history. The instant success of ‘Ride’ set Luke up as an international powerhouse. In 2005 Renaissance invited Luke to do a compilation mix CD with Dave Seaman before embarking on a year long tour of the UK, Europe and the United States to support the release.
Off the back of his solo success, Luke has been a remixer in demand. His thumping main room sound has been sought after by labels such as Bedrock, Positiva, Ministry of Sound, Yoshitoshi and Black Hole. Some of the big names Luke has remixed include Steve Angello, James Ash, Tune Brothers, Stockholm Syndrome, Kasey Taylor and Shiloh.
More recently Luke has been collaborating in the studio with Australian dance legends TV Rock. This partnership has proven to be a killer combination with the hugely successful releases ‘Happiness (I’m Hurting Inside)’ and the hit ‘In the Air’ – feat Rudy which was released on Axwell’s Axtone Records. Luke has also remixed numerous TV Rock originals such as ‘Everything Changes’, ‘Times Like These’.
More recently Luke has provided remixes for UK superstar Dizee Rascal, ARIA winner Bertie Blackman, TYDI, Tin Alley, Sunlovers and Kaz James.
