Bio

Victor Y is Sydney producer Paul Suares. His neurosis with music began at around ten, a trained drummer growing up in live bands across the borders of death metal and wistful folk. Realising the potential to curate infinite textures, he found infatuation and prowess in electronic production.

Collaboration and diversification is at the heart of the Victor Y project. Unconfined, tracks are often produced live with musicians in the studio, merging innovative sounds with sincere organic talent for mercurial energies. From delicate chillwave through deep and driving techno, Victor Y’s sound is versatile and holistic with mood, people, and place.

Launching the project in 2014, Suares’ debut single Black Light consistently held top positions across the electronic and overall Triple J unearthed charts, and featured in Veronika Maine’s 2014 winter campaign. Victor Y’s unique live sets have torn strings across outdoor and indoor events across Australia including performances at Subsonic Music Festival, Rabbits Eat Lettuce Festival, Wittika NYE Festival, SASH, Church Of Techno, Chien d’Ours and Cakes.

Along the way, he’s supported the likes of Sebastian Leger, Martin Garcia, Louisahhh!!! & Maelstrom, Mihai Popoviciu, YokoO and Bob Moses, and released music on labels like Alpha + Omega, Get Loaded Records and Discombobulation Records. As of recently he signed to Open Records, who'll be releasing an EP of his in the coming months.

The percussion on this song is next level. All those different sounds and textures really make this one.

Great production here, lots of cut up rhythms and layered sounds. No surprise that this is music made by a drummer, the percussion is really key. Nice work by vocalist Elyse Beer too.

There are some really clever sounds woven into this tune. Particularly impressed with the gradual build up and the nimble vocal cuts.
