Vicetone – United We Dance [November 3 – Ultra Records]
It seems like there is a brand new trend in dance music, and it has nothing to do with a certain sound or style. It has to do with naming, and it appears that naming your track or album “United We [something]” is the way to go. Hardwell titled his first studio album “United We Are,” and now Vicetone has titled their next original track “United We Dance”. The track has served as an unofficial anthem for the Ultra Music Festival since March, and has only now been attributed to the Dutch duo. In fact, it is now the official anthem of the 2014 festival, just after the fact. Now that they have jumped up to the #36 spot in the DJ Mag poll, the duo plans to release “United We Dance” through Ultra Records on November 3.
If it’s a Vicetone track, you know that it’s built off of a melody. Well, they followed their usual formula, and of course, it worked perfectly. The melody individualizes the track from a lot of the others in the mainstream industry just from its sheer musicality, and it’s ability to remain dynamic after the compulsory four bars. Orchestral drums offer a quick tease as to what comes next, as a simple synth evolves into a full-blown orchestral sequence as the melody presses onward, as has become one of Vicetone‘s signatures. The melody does not skip a beat as the buildup brings the drop closer to reality. Once “United We Dance” drops, the title most certainly becomes as reality, as the overall energy of the track is undeniable and perfectly fitting as the anthem of Ultra Music Festival.
“United We Dance” is scheduled to be released through Ultra Records on November 3. Enjoy!
