Roaming Manchester’s then infinite number of record shops is where Dave Muirhead
(originally from Scotland) and Kirk Shiels first met over 10 years ago. They joined forces in the studio in
late 2008 where their drive & desire to produce music has progressed them to the level they're at today, with their own distinctive sound and style which has proven to be a big hit on dance floors the world over. 2009 was a milestone year for the pair that saw the ThreeSixty name rise with numerous chart entries and some amazing remix opportunities which gained wide acclaim such as the No. 1 Beatport smash 'You Might Hear Nothing' by Slovenian Techno legend Umek and ‘Vibrations’ by Toolroom Records’ own Chris Special. They boast their own impressive list of artists who have remixed them such as Ramon Tapia, Matteo di Marr, Sonny Wharton, Ben Coda and Brazilian DJ/Producers Rodrigo Carreira & Kootech. So far, the duo have had releases on Toolromm Records, Mar 186, Dataworx, Stereo Productions, Whartone Records, Soulman Music, Binary 404, IIntoxicate Digital, Solarscape Music,Kompressor, Forensic, Harem and Baroque. The aforementioned Toolroom Knight DJ/Producer Funkagenda recently named ThreeSixty amongst his 'Ones to Watch' in Britain's Next Generation of Dance Stars on Beatportal and Ministry Of Sound interviews. He showed further support by licensing their tracks ‘Kore’ & ‘Cruise Control’ to his 'Toolroom Knights' Compilation. ‘Cruise Control’ also made an appearance on Ministry of Sound’s ‘The Underground 2010’ mixed by Afrojack & Bass Kleph. As well as a license to Fedde Le Grand & Funkerman's highly successful 'Flamingo Nights Volume One', they've written exclusive track ‘Invader’ for Toolroom Records featuring rising star Chris Special and one called ‘Access’ collaborated with Hauswerks for Sonny Wharton’s 'Exploring…UK' compilation, released by Baroque Records. Their productions since joining forces have caught the attentions and huge support of some of the biggest artists in Electronic music including Umek, Mark Knight, Funkagenda, Tiesto, Carl Cox, Pete Tong, Adam K, Fedde Le Grand, Paul Van Dyk, John Aquaviva, Matteo Dimmar, Dataworx, Magitman, 2Little, Jamie Blonde, V.Falabella, Flutuance and Eric Entrena to name but a few. With 2 successful Brazil tours and sell out shows at Sankey's in Manchester (DJ Mag's recently named 'Best Club in the World') under their belt, and with forthcoming gigs in Ibiza and the UK already in the pipeline over the coming months, ThreeSixty are firmly in demand for 2010 and are not to be missed as one of the fastest rising artists on the scene today.
