Belgium’s Yves V is one of the most dazzling dance music exports to emerge from the country in recent memory. From collaborations with Afrojack, Laidback Luke, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, as well as Sam Feldt, Florian Picasso and more across the past decade, over to a stellar 2020 that saw him propel forth like never before, he racked up over 135 million streams across 96 countries thanks to huge hits including ‘We Got That Cool’ and ‘Not So Bad’, as Yves V now springboards into 2021 with new release ‘Echo’.
Working with the platinum-awarded German duo behind 2020’s ‘Head Shoulders Knees & Toes’, Quarterhead, on the track behind the scenes, Yves brings his unique effervescence and stylistic workings to the production of ‘Echo’ with ease, drawing on emotion, bringing swelling chords and sweeping statements of genre-straddling electronics to the fore. “Let go, I don’t wanna let go/ Cos wherever I go/ I can hear your echo” the breath-taking vocal muses in to commence proceedings, as a tinkering house-leaning beat snaps in with a formation that, come the breakdown, pushes to deeper reaches with its sound to bring in the affectional bliss.
Enlisting radio-ready synths with a raw vocal that merges with swathes of bass that elevate the elements of the release across its individual ingredients, Yves V gets set to usher in the soundtrack of your new year in style.
