Vicetone

Biography

As childhood friends, Ruben and Victor had lofty dreams of playing music to crowds of
thousands of people chanting to their songs. Hours away from the nearest nightclub in
Amsterdam and with nothing more than a small home studio in rural Netherlands, the
duo set out on their goal – crafting a harmonic, melody driven, Big Room sound that is
as easy to listen to in your home as it is on the dance floor.
Now only two years since the fruition of Vicetone, the Dutch duo is having the breakout
year that many aspiring producers can only wish to sell their souls for; rising through the
ranks of the DJ Mag Top 100 poll (currently sitting at #36), racking up five HypeM #1’s,
performing on multiple tours all over the world including a six-week sold out North
American tour, playing internationally renowned clubs including Ushuaia Ibiza and
Ministry of Sound London, Pacha NYC and Avalon Los Angeles as well as festivals
such as TomorrowWorld, Ultra Music Festival and Electric Zoo, and releasing multiple
Beatport Top 10 charting singles including “Let Me Feel” their collaboration with Nicky
Romero.
Wrapping up their biggest year to-date, 2014 has proven monumental to the Dutch
twosome’s success. Attributed directly to a steady stream of noteworthy singles,
Vicetone has developed a reputation synonymous with quality. With a firm Buzz Chart
#1 and already exceeding 1 million online preview plays in a week, Vicetone’s latest
track “Let Me Feel” with Nicky Romero shot straight to #1 on Beatport in just a few days
of release. In May, the duo released “Ensemble” which debuted during their 2014 UMF
set and peaked at #22 on Billboard’s emerging artist charts. “White Lies” was released
in late March and saw support from heavyweights Tiësto, David Guetta, Krewella, and
R3hab to name a few, while “Lowdown” remains Vicetone’s most played track of the
year. In August 2013, Vicetone released one of their most noteworthy records to date,
“Tremble” on Nicky Romero’s Protocol Recordings. The massive hit garnered support
from top DJs worldwide including Tiësto, Krewella, NERVO, David Guetta, Avicii and
many more. Aside from their massive original singles, Vicetone have amassed
impressive remix credits by top artists including Linkin Park and Steve Aoki [“A Light
That Never Comes”], Nicky Romero and Krewella [“Legacy”], Matthew Koma [“One
Night”], and Cash Cash [“Overtime”] amongst others.
In September 2014, Vicetone scored the official aftermovie soundtrack to Ultra’s
legendary Miami Music Festival. For this unique opportunity, the single titled “United We
Dance” was created specifically for UMF’s 15-minute short film which features
highlights, clips, and a glimpse into the minds of world renowned DJs during the famed
Miami festival. For the project, Vicetone wrote and composed a unique and original
score comprised of cinematic and contemporary orchestral elements with high energy
dance parts to showcase their individualistic style of dance music like never
before. “United We Dance” is set for release this November on Ultra Music.
Already considered a must-hear act by major players within the industry, watch closely
as Vicetone are poised to takeover in 2015. With a distinctive sound as special as
theirs, the new year will yield big new singles, exciting remixes, and unforgettable live performances.
