The duo of Ruben Den Boer and Victor Pool, aka Vicetone,inject a strong affinity with melody into their main stage EDM productions, and describe the past year as the “biggest in our short career so far”.
While they’ve been responsible for several polished hits on goliath stables like Spinnin’, Ultra and Dim Mak, their landmark achievement since they placed in last year’s Top 100 DJs poll was producing the rather epic and emotional soundtrack for the Ultra Music Festival 2014 after-movie, the rather epic and emotive 15-minute ‘United We Dance’.
“It was the biggest project of our lives,” they say of the after-movie that dropped last November. “We worked closely with the Ultra team, and it was a challenging project since the music had to evolve over time, and change from dance music into an orchestral soundtrack.
It was a big accomplishment for us and it really pushed our creativity. It’s gotten millions of plays by now and has become one of the most requested songs in our sets. It’s definitely been a highlight.”
Otherwise, it’s also been full speed ahead for Vicetone this year. They’ve toured a whole stack of new countries and territories, including a variety of spots throughout Asia where they point to a booming dance scene, as well as beginning their own Vicetone Records imprint, which they say has opened up the possibility of experimenting outside of their normal release schedule.
