Aussie producer and performer Two Can ready to embrace 2022

Aussie producer and performer Two Can ready to embrace 2022

Australian-born producer and performer Two Can is continuing to make waves with multiple originals and remixes now clocking up millions of streams.

The project has grown exponentially since it started in 2014.

The pandemic taught Two Can (aka Myles Sach-Haber) how being based in two cities – Los Angeles and Melbourne – could work for him.

He was in lockdown twice first LA and then Melbourne, lasting over 400 days.

In the most recent of those lockdowns, in Melbourne, he recorded, released singles and an EP, took singing lessons, went on long runs, played video games and ate healthily.

By January, he expects to be back in Los Angeles where close friend Randy Urbanski (Kanye West’s engineer) is awaiting his arrival so they can start work on a number of new projects.

Two Can met Urbanski when he first moved to Los Angeles. They shared a studio, first in North Hollywood and now in the green Hollywood Hills.

“It’s very peaceful up in Hollywood, and a great place to hang out and create,” says Two Can. “You can try what you please, and no one is going to be judgemental.”

Apart from a range of summer house and electro-pop originals, the Aussie has honed his craft and created a global reputation for his remixes, which have generated well over 45 million streams.

These include David Guetta & Sia’s ‘Flames’ and Galantis & Throttle’s ‘Tell Me You Love Me’, while his reinterpretation of Benson‘s ‘Step To Me’ went to #1 on the ARIA Club Charts.

Two Can counts The Chainsmokers, Martin Garrix and Oliver Heldens among his fans.

“I was pretty much unknown in Australia when I was asked to submit a remix for an international name. They said yes, and I was offered another one. This reputation has grown as the streaming results increased.

“It all started blowing up with these (remixes) getting multi-million plays. The Chainsmokers were playing them at festivals before hundreds of thousands of people.”

There’s another reason for Two Can’s eagerness to return Stateside: his booking agent is there, and he is keen to get back onto a tour circuit.

“Performing is where all the hard work comes together,” he said.

He wants to translate the songs on his current EP Unilateral (out on his own label, Sunset Parade, through Believe) which has a strong electro-pop flavour.

‘Zpace’ is elaborately produced with 150 overdubs and ‘In My Head’ (featuring FatherDude) has a dirty grungy bass sound he picked up listening to Empire Of The Sun and MGMT.

FatherDude is a New York performer-producer with a spectacular voice, who’s toured Australia.

“I first worked with him when I started Two Can in 2014. We did a song called ‘Double Edge’.

“It got over a million plays in a short time and some big names started knocking on the door.”

“I was new to the music industry then, so all my work was put up on SoundCloud. Things really got going when I migrated to Spotify.

‘Heat’ and ‘Feels Brand New’ are floor bangers, with the latter featuring Jai Amore.

Jai Amore is an award-winning London-born Ghanian singer-songwriter whom he was introduced to through his publisher, and become close friends with.

“I’m very interested in how to translate the songs on the EP into a live situation. I’d like it to be a solo thing, with just me and my instruments, recreating some sounds on a synthesiser.

“Having recently discovered and cultivated my voice, I’m keen to add my own vocals as another layer to vocals by other people on the EP tracks.”

Jai Amore sings on and co-wrote Two Can’s January-due single ‘Sunshine In Your Soul’ through Neon Records/ Universal Music Australia. 

Publisher ‘Smiley’ Cleary from PeppermintBlue said a mutual industry friend introduced them.

“I loved Myles sound and his wiliness to try new ideas. Since signing him, I have been amazed at his work ethic and his drive to succeed,” Smiley says.

Two Can said ‘Sunshine In Your Soul’ is different to the sounds on the EP.

“It’s a more Calvin Harris-ey dancey record,” he explains.

“After being in lockdown for so long, I wanted to make a record that I could hear at a huge festival or at a beach dance party. This could be the next big one.”
