Of all the national young bloods to claim their stake on the global circuit, Dutch duo Vicetone have been one of the more consistent of the masses. Off the heels of a strong debut at UMF this year and landmark vocal offering “White Lies,” the Romero protégés entered the summer with big boots to fill in order to keep their name afloat into the sunnier remits of the dance music calendar.
With a new offering for Doorn Recordings this month, there is little evidence of a diminishing shelf life for the promising big room outfit. Orchestral hits and a soaring guitar solo make for the unlikely instrumental aptitude that shapes “Ensemble,” spotlighting the kind of musical coherence that many would have us believe are simply unavailable to the big room market. While the track apexes with a conventional nod to the festival primed sound of the genre, the journey there speaks of an outfit actively trying to do something a little different in an overly saturated scene. On the merits of this functional yet creative approach, Vicetone remains an act with far more stamina than we may have original given them credit for.
