Just hours after Steve Aoki and Linkin Park performed their new collaboration, “A Light That Never Comes” on national TV, Vicetone released their version of the new single with a remix on SoundCloud. Only one year after the dutch duo came to fruition, Ruben and Victor are off to an incredible start, with 5 HypeM #1′s, a 6 week sold out North American tour and performances at Electric Zoo and TomorrowWorld under their belt. Garnering a spot on DJ Mag’s Top 100 at #60, Vicetone’s passion for music drives their success, and this remix is just another example of their uncanny ability to enhance any track. Heightening synths and speeding things up a bit, while still preserving Chester Bennington’s vocals, Vicetone’s adaptation of this already feisty cross-genre collab packs a powerful punch.
Release Date: TBA
Past the support of Nicky Romero and an inauguration to the North American club circuit, Vicetone have many reasons to be smiling in the fourth and final quarter. Off the heels of emotive Thrice Recordings single “Chasing Time,” the duo bucks the trend for radio-friendly anthems with a revisit of Popeska and Luciana’s “The New Kings.” Driving powerful and uplifting properties into the accomplished original, the revisit matches radio-friendly edge with powerful club potential. With whisper of further exciting release prospects and affirmative action penned for ADE and beyond, these Dutch young bloods rally yet another reason to believe that somewhere along the line, Vicetone has become one of Europe’s most essential and exciting prospects to the Dutch throne.
Now in its 25th year and still drawing thousands of artists, industry professionals and fans from across the globe, Amsterdam Dance Event remains crucial to the industry calendar. With a considerably more ‘work’ focused agenda than its American cousins, the play-hard factor of ADE remains a huge pull to labels, artists and even fans looking to get stuck in amongst this professional dance mecca. For 2013, however, the festival agenda has flown into positive overdrive. With a record number of parties from across the industry spectrum set to keep heads from pillows throughout the conference, our editors banded together to scope the events you should be hitting across the five-day event.

With their names firmly established as one of Holland’s hottest breakouts of the year, Vicetone return this with next original single for Armada offshoot Trice Recordings. At the tail end of a year that saw them remix the likes of Nicky Romero and Krewella ,whilst building their own arsenal of original releases, “Chasing Time” emerges as one of their most focused offerings to date. Accompanied by Swedish songwriter Daniel Gidlund, the duo embarks on a stirring melodic set-piece, opening the floodgates of radio-friendly dance music with the utmost focus on quality. Evidently in their element with a well-oiled topline at ready, “Chasing Time” marks a dignified solidification of the elements collected to make Vicetone one of Europe’s more deserving suitors to the high end of modern dance music.
Expanding their reach beyond the massive festival scene that they’ve conquered (beginning with their Ultra Music Festival debuts), Nicky Romero and Krewella spark their “Legacy” collaboration with new flare on each of the four remixes that make up its re-release. While the hottest commodities in both electro house and vocals combined for one of the year’s hottest record, the squad enlist producers of various genres to make their prized production translatable across new territory. What happens when Candyland, Don Diablo, Vicetone, and Wildstylez are introduced to such an anthem?
Nicky Romero and Krewella joined forced and crossed talents for one of 2013′s most sizable hits of the year in “Legacy.” An instant anthem that dominated Miami Music week and a festival season success that’s lingered beyond its July release, the mega collaboration features all that there is to be desired from a commercial house record while leaving an open lane for genre-benders to steer it elsewhere. Inevitably, “Legacy” is now seeing new life in the form of an all encompassing remix package due for an imminent release on Protocol Recordings. At the helm, Victone offers an alternative chord progression to accompany the memorable vocals, Wildstylez completely shifts gears with a hardstyle version, and Don Diablo takes his hand at a trap rendition. Wrapping up the package, Candyland best juxtaposes the melodic nature with their “OG Trap Mix” branding.
With the Summer season at an all-time peak and Pete Tong otherwise preoccupied with his global ventures, Danny Howard was back to sit-in for Pete Tong with an admirable return to the Essential Selection show on BBC Radio One this weekend. With the ranks of Pryda, Toolroom, Axtone and Size Records all flaunting new and exclusive music throughout, Calvin Harris would prove a recurring star of this annual injection of Friday night floor fundamentals.
With their much anticipated debut on Nicky Romero’s Protocol Recordings, Victone have achieved what is unequivocally one of the biggest releases of their career. With its gritty bassline, virtuosic string section, and absorbing progression, the Dutch duo’s latest production has all the makings of a standout summer anthem. It’s safe to say that Vicetone get better with every release, and simply put, “Tremble” is fantastic.
Dutch progressive duo Vicetone has been making some serious waves as of late, culminating in a high profile Protocol Recordings debut that is poised to elevate their forward thinking sound to the next level. Containing simply elegant orchestrals that meld seamlessly into a multifaceted build, the track really takes off upon its complex lead synth-driven drop that pairs a powerful melody with a mature arrangement approach. In a sea of similar big-room ready tracks angling for festival play, “Tremble” truly stands out as a unique production upon which its creators’ painstaking care and attention to production detail have been rendered starkly evident. With an August 5th release fast approaching, expect “Tremble” to be one of the most memorable releases of the summer.
Because dominance on some of the world’s biggest festival stages over the summer isn’t quite enough for the young Dutch DJing superstar, Nicky Romero has announced his latest tour “Nothing Toulouse” for the United States and Canada, scheduled for a month-long, later summer stay on the continent between Saturday, August 31st and Sunday, September 29th. He’ll be starting in San Diego, moving through Vegas, Ottawa, Montreal, Toronto, Puerto Rico, Boston, Philly, DC, Texas, and ending at the first-ever TomorrowWorld outside of Atlanta. Nicky will be supported by upcoming Dutch duo Vicetone and given his own stage to shine throughout this tour, he will no doubt live up to the endless hype associated with his name.
