Vicetone is gearing up for the weekend with a lighthearted house number called “Fix You.”

The single kicks off the duo’s 2018 releases and is a perfect encapsulation of their present-day style. With a bouncy horn-based melody and soulful vocals, “Fix You” is primed for both the dance floor and a relaxing drive, hitting that sweet spot between energetic and chill house music.

“Fix You” is Vicetone’s first release on Spinnin’ Records since “Collide” last August.

Vicetone has upgraded their studio, and with the upgrade comes their progressive house remix of Dua Lipa’s “New Rules.” The Dutch duo talked about their production process for the remix, noting fans will likely hear them drop the track in live sets in the future.

“We had a blast remixing Dua Lipa’s vocals, especially after recently upgrading our studio with some fresh new gear. We used a lot of guitars and vocal recordings we did ourselves to give the song a unique and different vibe from the original. The whole process felt really natural and we already love playing this one out in our live sets!”

The upbeat remix adds a completely different feel to the pop song. Fans of the remix can download it for free here.

See how much your favorite DJs have changed over the past 5 years

While seeing someone like Hardwell or Afrojack at the Ultra main stage today may be a similar experience to what it was in 2012, it cannot be denied that dance music has seen considerable change over the past five years or so. One of the biggest signs has been the willingness of artists to expand their sounds and collaborative choices. For example, Afrojack, who was dropping the crunchiest beats in the game a few years ago, is now working with artists like Ty Dolla $ign and Luis Fonsi to breed mainstream, Top 40 tracks. There’s also the case of The Chainsmokers, who went from remixing popular indie/alternative songs in 2013 to now being arguably the hottest duo in the world right now, topping the charts across all genres in working with Coldplay, Halsey, and others.

Dance music has proven it isn’t going anywhere anytime soon, and that it is capable of rapid evolution and reinvention. To prove how much the music has changed over the years, a Facebook page called Revealed Family posted two videos entitled “EDM – THEN vs. NOW.” The videos give a track by track outline of how different music by the top DJs in the game was 5 years ago versus how it is now. There’s a clear difference in sound and production style that should be noticed instantly. The videos include old and new tracks by Nicky Romero, Zedd, R3hab, Avicii, Skrillex, Alesso, Vicetone, Deorro, The Chainsmokers and more.

Vicetone – I Hear You (Original Mix)

Hot off their triumphant return to the Monstercat label with “Nevada,” Vicetone returns with another, “I Hear You.” The perfect fit for a summer dance party, this feel good anthem mixes expert vocal chops, high energy synth sounds, and infectious chord progressions to create a unique, radio-ready single.

With their melody-driven sound having won them fans from all over the world, Vicetone’s globetrotting tour schedule, and the release of “I Hear You” promises to make the summer of 2017 an unforgettable one for the duo. It stands to reason that the duo’s latest will make a play for Song of the Summer.
