The Bandcamp Diaries: VICU - #Vicunomics

VICU is an artist with a really unique approach to his music. Recently, he released a brand new EP, which showcases his catchy and innovative sound. This new project is titled #Vicunomics, and it really sets the bar higher, showcasing VICU’s willingness to experiment with new ideas and creative solutions.

This EP features 8 new songs. It follows a very refreshing structure, with an arrangement that is at the same time straightforward and intuitive. There is definitely a lot going on under the hood, and the deceptively simple structure of this release actually hides a lot of sophistication. For instance, the production is absolutely world-class. The low-end is deep and textural, while the top end of the mix as a very polished smoothness, which adds definition to the material.

On top of it all, VICU’s performance on this project is absolutely outstanding. The melodic range is very dynamic and expressive, allowing a lot of emotion to come through from the arrangements. It’s always awesome to hear artists who are arguably deeply connected with the material they perform, and this definitely seems to be VICU’s case.

Find out more about VICU and do not miss out on this EP, or other releases from this talented performer and songwriter.

SOULTRACKS: First Listen: Dance Shake

A new song that harkens back to the heyday of dance music in the late 70s and early 80s...[Dance Shake (feat. IhsAn Bilal & VICU)] will be the lead track of Matthew Shell's upcoming album Spiritual Relationship: The Deeper Meaning. We think SoulTrackers will dig this cut. Check out “Dance Shake” and tell us what you think!

ROCKDAFUQOUT: Dance Shake

For, “Dance Shake“, IhsAn Bilal teamed up with VICU who deliver stellar vocals...I love the dynamic between the two vocalists who bring perfect pitch to the incredibly technical and musical production.  This is no run of the mill radio track.  One listen should tell you that there is a clear understanding of music theory and arrangement.
