Producer, remixer, DJ & label owner, multifaceted artist Igor Vicente is turning into a truly global electronic music proposition. Vicente’s unique sound is built up over 4 or 5 hours creating a smooth & unpredictable blend of House & Techno, full of effects often creating surprise in his sets.
Growing up in Mons, Belgium, Vicente grew up listening to Michael Jackson, Bobby Brown KC & The Sunshine Band & Warren G. His passion for electronic music started in his teens, when he first discovered the sounds of Richie Hawtin, Dave Clarke, Funk D Void, Kenny Hawkes, DJ Sneak & Derrick Carter. His infatuation with all things electronic led to the creation of his now legendary Wildfamily parties, which saw the likes of Jamie Jones, Clive Henry, Seth Troxler & Shaun Reeves play among other DJ friends.
2011 saw the birth of Ultrasone; the duo producing tracks for big labels includingVisionquest,Supplement Facts,Hot Creations&Maison d’êtrewith big remixes on Saved, Get Physical & Air London.
2013 saw Vicente put Ultrasone to bed to focus on his growing solo career. Founding his own new brand & label State of Flow, it went from strength to strength from the first vinyl release from LYE in 2015. State of Flow has also now developed into a famed club night brand & his Wildfamily parties also continue atKompassclub, now with a newWildfamilydigital label imprint designed for 'good party music'. His residencies at Belgium’s elite clubs Café d’Anvers & Fuse firmly imprinted Vicente in the electronic dance music scene.
Production wise, Igor's most revered releases have included Hot Creations bomb 'The Knight' with a remix by Jamie Jones & his track with Vernon Bara 'Don't Feel No Way' on Visionquest. Labels including Hot Creations & Get Physical records continue to release his music.
Anja Schneider says “Igor Vicente has honestly been the DJ who has impressed me most with his mind-blowing sets, I can't keep this secret & wish that everyone will hear his amazing talent”.
So what's new for 2018? April sees him begin a new club residency at Roots Barcelona & a new club project L.sT also starts this spring in Antwerp, aiming for “quality over quantity, putting the vibe firmly up front”.
Igor's forthcoming releases for Spring 2018 include 'Endless EP' on Get Physical Music & 'Amberes EP' on Do Not Sleep. Also keep your ears peeled for Igor's next bomb, his remix of Los Pastores 'Challenger' forthcoming on Decay Records, already getting major props from Jamie Jones.
