Not many artists can boast signing their first single with one of the greatest House Music personalities of all-time. Those Usual Suspects were fortunate enough to release their first single Dakka on French Superstar Bob Sinclars AfricanismYellow Productions imprint, including a remix by another House-don, Little Louie Vega.
This allowed the trio, Atridge, Maarcos and Wei-Shen, to join a select group of Musicians in the Bob Sinclars Africanism All-Stars Team. Dakka was instantly supported by the biggest names in dance music including Roger Sanchez, Martin Solveig, Erick Morillo, David Guetta and received airplay on Pete Tongs Essential Selection.
Going from strength to strength the boys drew inspiration from their dance music education in the 90s and reworked Three Drives on a Vinyls Greece 2000. Remixed by D.O.N.S. & DBN & the Suspects own Maarcos, Greece 2000 became the worldwide anthem of 2008 from the Miami Winter Music Conference to the Summer Ibiza season. The track was charted in the Swedish House Mafias Top 10 and was included in every DJs record box and CD wallet leading Ministry of Sound to proclaim Those Usual Suspects to be among the biggest house producers to break out of Australia ever.
The Suspects then collaborated on their next single with Vocal Diva Abigail Bailey for their next single entitled Shadows. The track, supported by the Swedish House Mafia, Bob Sinclar, Kaskade, Tiesto and Armin Van Buuren, further enhanced the groups reputation. The great success and popularity of Shadows saw the track signed to US label Nervous Records and provided one of the groups greatest achievements by reaching number 17 in the US Billboard Dance Charts.
This success has given Maarcos driving big-room sound and Wei-Shens distinctive brand of hedonistic and funky house music platform to be showcased, with DJ performances in clubs and festivals around the world including the Ministry of Sound London, Ibiza, Paris, Summadayze and Future Music Festivals, Dubai and the infamous Playboy and Moon Club in Las Vegas. Not content with travelling the world, the boys have also completed remixes for the likes of Bob Sinclar, Axwell, Kings of Tomorrow, Inaya Day and Ou Est Le Swimming Pool.
Continuing the trend of receiving big name support, the boys were featured by their great idol, the legendary Roger Sanchez, in his Release Yourself Radio Show Spotlight along with their big-room monster Feel The Need and followed this up with a Guest Mix on his show as well. In addition, their single My Star released in 2011 has been championed on the DMC Zzub chart Top 10 as well support from UK radio legend Andi Durrant, Ministry of Sound UK Radio, The Aston Shuffle, Chris Lake and Axwell.
With forthcoming singles on Onelove and Phazing Records these self-confessed workaholics continue to stamp themselves into the history books of House Music.
