Platinum-certified Vicetone have been delivering addictive melodies and pushing the creative bounds of dance music for over a decade. Infectiously melodic and energetic, the distinct Vicetone sound has earned Dutch DJ/Producer duo Ruben den Boer and Victor Pool over a billion streams, multiple platinum and gold records, and a loyal global fanbase. Their untamed passion and creativity infuses all their output, from recorded music to exhilarating live shows performed at top festivals and clubs around the world. Childhood friends Victor and Ruben found quick success after joining creative forces in 2012 and releasing their debut record “Harmony”; within their first year they landed a spot on DJ Mag’s prestigious Top 100 DJ list and began touring globally. Vicetone has since brought their brand of emotionally charged dance music to their 2021 album “Legacy” and hits like “Nevada” and “Astronomia”, which hit top 10 on Spotify’s Global Viral Top 50 and was the second most Shazamed song worldwide. Vicetone’s latest EP “Departing Reality” showcases the duo’s talent for innovative production and experimentation while staying true to their artistic roots. "One thing that’s become apparent from working together for so long is that Victor is drawn toward happy songs, while I gravitate toward the darker and more melancholic songs, " explains Ruben. The EP’s four singles exemplify this dynamic tension and the duo’s ability to play in a broad emotional range, from the sunny and positive “Tomorrow Never Comes” to the hauntingly dark “Voices in My Head”. In ‘World Has A Heartbeat’ Vicetone expands on their classic guitar-based sound found in ‘Nevada’ and ‘Walk Thru Fire’, while in “Dopamine Junkie” the duo pays homage to the addictive melodies that hallmark their brand of dance music. Inspired by the escapist feeling of losing yourself in the perfect melody, “Departing Reality” exhibits the creative breadth and technical mastery Vicetone has honed over a decade of meticulous production and unrelenting dedication to the craft. The EP was released on July 21st 2023 and supported by the ‘Departing Reality Tour’ featuring stops in Asia, Europe, and North America.
