The EP Features previous singles “Something Strange” and “Fences”
Dutch DJ duo Vicetone have unveiled their highly
anticipated EP “Elements”, which include two recent singles ‘Fences’ feat. Matt Wertz and ‘Something
Strange’ with platinum selling artist
Haley Reinhart. Set for release on February
22nd on Monstercat, “Elements”
will feature two unreleased tracks ‘Home’
and ‘Feels Like’ feat. LAUR.
With ‘Elements’ serving as the
follow up to 2016’s Aurora, the EP features more live instrumentalization than ever
before that illustrate sonic depth from the progressive house duo. Victor adds:
“This is the first thing
we’ve done where we’re playing guitar, and it lets us get so many sounds we’d
never be able to get through sampling.”
“Elements” opens with title track ‘Something Strange’, an uplifting tune
with slick piano melodies led by the soulful vocal talents of Haley Reinhart. As the first single released from the EP, ‘Something Strange’ has shown huge success breaking into top 40 and
Dance Charts , currently ranked as the most played track on SIRIUSXM Venus and has amassed
about 1 million views on Youtube and 3 million streams on Spotify to date.
Vicetone experiment with delicate guitar notes on next single ‘Fences’, accompanied by the smooth
vocal talents of Matt Wertz. While
the single features jangly tambourine rhythms and more upbeat tones, the theme
of the single touches on a serious and melancholic topic. “Fences’
is about someone trying to help his girlfriend out of a depression—it’s meant
to have a motivational feeling to it,” Victor states.
In contrast, “Home” captures a sweet nostalgia for childhood with an
atmospheric tone and shimmering textures. Rounding off the EP with single “Feels Like,”Vicetone fully embrace their progressive-house roots, turning out a
transcendent club anthem woven with the hypnotic vocals of singer/songwriter LAUR.
Previously amassing over 42 million Spotify streams on hits
like ‘Nevada’, the pair manage to retain their own distinct brand of
emotionally charged dance music while adding a fresh 2019 twist. Growing up in
the Dutch city of Groningen, Ruben
and Victor began exploring their
passion for dance music back in high school, when the two longtime friends
would spend hours making mixes of mutually beloved producers like Armin van Buuren, Paul van Dyk, and Eric Prydz. Since their debut with ‘Harmony’
(a 2012 release on Monstercat),
Vicetone began landing gigs around
Europe, and soon took on a relentless world tour schedule.
To date, they’ve brought their high-energy, infinitely exhilarating live show
to massive festivals across the globe, including Ultra Miami and Ultra
Croatia. In addition, they’ve graced the stage at iconic venues like Hanoi Opera House, and performed throughout
China, Vietnam, Thailand, Japan, and
The release of “Elements” solidifies the Dutch duo’s reputation as one of dance music’s most innovative producers, and is out now!
