Vicetone is a Dutch DJ and production duo formed by Ruben Den Boer and Victor Pool, from the Dutch city of Groningen. In 2013, they were voted into the DJ Mag Top 100 DJs list for the first time at 60th as a new entry. Later in 2014, they went up 24 places on the list, coming 36th. In 2015, they fell 14 places to 50th. To date, there are in total over 50 million listens on their SoundCloud page, as well as over half a million likes on their Facebook page.
In 2014, Vicetone opened the year with releases on Spinnin' Records, including their tracks "Lowdown" and "Ensemble". They also had other high profile releases on Nicky Romero's Protocol Recordings and Hardwell's Revealed Recordings. They also performed at the 2014 edition of the Ultra Music Festival. Their major breakthrough that year, however, came with the release of their first Beatport #1 overall charting track "Let Me Feel", that was a collaboration with Nicky Romero. Later that year, they performed at the TomorrowWorld festival in Atlanta. Vicetone also announced that they had also composed the single "United We Dance" as the soundtrack for the 2014 Ultra Music Festival aftermovie, which they then released on Ultra Records. For their final track of 2014, Vicetone released their track "What I've Waited For" through Monstercat.
To start off 2015, Vicetone released their vocal progressive track "No Way Out", a collaboration with vocalist Kat Nestel, which marked the third track they released through the Spinnin' Records main imprint, after "Lowdown" and their remix of Cash Cash's "Overtime". Following the success of their Ultra Music Festival aftermovie anthem, they released the festival's 2015 anthem "Follow Me" featuring JHart on February 17th 2015. Later in 2015, the duo released two more singles with Kat Nestel titled "Angels" and "Nothing Stopping Me," both on Ultra Music, released a remix for a song from the popular game League of Legends called "Project Yi" and they remixed Hardwell and Tiesto's collaboration, "Colors".
To start off 2016 they released a new track on Spinnin' Records called "Pitch Black". This was followed by the release of their first EP entitled "Aurora", which was released in April before the beginning of a headline tour of the same name.
As childhood friends, Ruben and Victor had lofty dreams of playing music to crowds of thousands of people chanting to their songs. Several hours from any signs of nightlife in Amsterdam and with nothing more than a small home studio in rural Netherlands, the duo set out on their goal - crafting a harmonic, melody driven, Big Room sound that is as easy to listen to in your home as it is on the dance floor.
Now only one year since the fruition of Vicetone, the Dutch duo is having the breakout year that many aspiring producers can only wish to sell their souls for; gracing the 2013 DJ Mag Top 100 poll at #60, racking up five HypeM #1’s, performing on a 6 week sold out North American tour, playing internationally renowned clubs including Ushuaia Ibiza and Ministry of Sound London as well as festivals such as Tomorrowworld and Electric Zoo, and releasing multiple Beatport Top 10 charting singles including “Heartbeat” featuring Colin McLoughlin and “Stars” featuring Jonny Rose.
In August 2013, Vicetone released their most noteworthy record to date, “Tremble” on Nicky Romero’s Protocol Recordings. The massive hit garnered support from top DJs worldwide including Tiesto, Krewella, NERVO, David Guetta, Avicii and many more.
Powered by nothing but their pure and honest passion for dance music, this is only the beginning for Vicetone. With their “music first” philosophy, it is only a matter of time until they join the top ranks of DJ/Producers they idolized only months ago. As Ruben and Victor would say, "Music means everything to us, and our goal in life is to share our passion and love for it".
