Producer, remixer, DJ and 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 and unpredictable blend of House and Techno, full of effects often creating surprise in his sets.Coming from Mons, Belgium, Vicente grew up listening to Michael Jackson, Bobby Brown, KC & The Sunshine Band and 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 and Derrick Carter. His infatuation with all electronic things led to the creation of his now legendary Wildfamily parties, in which Jamie Jones, Clive Henry, Seth Troxler and Shaun Reeves has played among other DJ friends.In 2011 was born Ultrasone, a duo producing tracks for big labels including Visionquest, Supplement Facts, Hot Creations and Maison d’Être with big remixes on Saved, Get Physical and Air London.In 2013, Igor Vicente put Ultrasone to sleep to focus himself on his growing solo career. He also founded his own brand and label State of Flow that has gone from strength to strength from the first vinyl release from LYE in 2015. State of Flow has also developed into a famed club night brand, and his Wildfamily parties also continue at Kompass club, now with a new Wildfamily digital label imprint designed for ‘good party music’. His residencies at Belgium’s elite clubs Café d’Anvers and Fuse firmly imprinted Igor 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, and Don’t Feel no Way on Visionquest. Labels including Hot Creations and Get Physical records has continuously released his music. “Igor Vicente has honestly been the DJ who has most impressed me with his mind-blowing sets. I can’t keep this secret and wish that everyone will hear his amazing talent,” says Anja Schneider.
