Collaboration and diversification is at the heart of the Victor Y project. Unconfined tracks are often produced with musicians in the studio, merging innovative sounds with sincere organic talent for spontaneous yet flowing energies. From delicate chillwave, through deep and driving techno and house, Victor Y’s sound is versatile, with holistic and humanistic qualities.

Following his inaugural exploration of the project, including the single ‘Black Light’ charting on Triple J Unearthed accompanied by heavy FBI Radio play, Victor Y’s productions have paved his way into the Open Records and Bassic Records families. Upon the release of his debut EP ‘Blueprint’ with Open in 2017, Victor Y’s work gained recognition from worldwide electronic extraordinaires including Maceo Plex, Guy J, Henry Saiz, Marc Poppcke, SQL, Jamie Stevens, Stereo Underground, Soulwerk and Gabriel Rhome.

Of course, commercial success needs a balance with artistic expression. Each Victor Y musical project overflows with conceptualised storytelling. On the Open Records 2018 hit compilation Expansion Pack ll, the single ‘Colin’ infers a playfulness and uplifting quality inspired by companionship. Whilst his remix of Doppel & Ken Zo’s ‘This Moment’ on Bassic Records, represents the darker side of the VY persona, it still displays spontaneity and experimentation, qualities this project is making a name for.

In sharing his musical endeavours around the world, Victor Y has DJ’d to crowds from Switzerland, Denmark, Poland, Germany, New Zealand and of course his home country of Australia. He continues to aim for a widened range of experiences, featuring at multi day festivals of the forest, to intimate club nights, foremost Shankra Festival, Subsonic Music Festival, Dragon Dreaming, Twisted Frequency, Rabbits Eat Lettuce, S.A.S.H, Capulet and Uebel und Gefährlich.

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