United States Progressive House Trance Psy-Trance +6

Robert Vadney (aka Robbie V) is a Greek-American multi-talented music producer/composer, songwriter/singer, DJ/remixer and one of electronic dance music's standout individuals. A true unique and rare talent, constantly pushing EDM musical boundaries beyond it's perceived norms.

With innumerable remixes on high profile labels and critically acclaimed original compositions already under his belt, you'll be forgiven for thinking Vadney has been around forever as he is still only in his 20's! From his ground-breaking fusion of Trance with Rock/Goth/Horror overtones, Robert was the first artist to marry these extremes in a unique manner and as a consequence, "Gothic Trance" was born. Affectionately known as the "King of Gothic Trance" for his past dark underground Trance music by his fans worldwide, his work has been supported worldwide by the who’s who in trance including Tiesto, Paul Van Dyk, Armin Van Buuren, Above & Beyond, Markus Schulz, but it's his legendary association and work with Paul Oakenfold that is most noted. This association with Oakenfold and Perfecto Records has yielded many successes. As well as critically acclaimed remixes, Robert's own productions have equally astounded and acquired cult status among devoted fans. His outstanding debut albums with many of his own vocals on Perfecto Records ('Halloween Anthems', 'Christmas Anthems', 'Shadowlove Anthems' and ‘Dance 4 Death’) were merely his first artistic works but attracted outstanding reviews from the dance media and are a must hear for any true EDM fan.

Just when the world couldn't get enough of his productions, Vadney began to the feel the constraints of the trance music scene and needed a new challenge. He went back to his roots, turning his attention to the live Alternative Rock music scene and formed band projects which yielded some notable recording and performance successes.

In 2013, Robert returns to the EDM scene with a fresh outlook and showcases his "new sounds" to the world. These new sounds have brought together many of Robert’s favorite styles of music and showcase the next stage of his musical evolution fusing his own vocals, dubstep, electro, house, hip hop, gothic and alternative rock/metal and not forgetting his love for a big room melody. In Robert's own words, ''I will always have huge respect and admiration for Paul and his label but trance music in general wasn’t allowing me to be as creative as I would like and it all got frustrating, I felt it was time to move on, lock myself in the studio and make new interesting music that I'm passionate about''. Quite fittingly, Robert’s final Perfecto release was ‘Paul Oakenfold feat. Robert Vandey - Pop Star’, another very well received Vadney and Oakenfold collaboration that received support across the board.

Aside from his class A production and lyrical-writing skills, Robert is an accomplished multi-instrumentalist who can play various instruments like piano/keys, guitar, bass, drums and has composed scores for various visual projects. As if this wasn't enough, he also found time in his already busy life to obtain a first class honors degree in Music Technology from Preston University. And not forgetting, he is an accomplished DJ who has graced some of the world's big clubs and festivals such as Gatecrasher UK, Rain Las Vegas, Cavo Paradiso Greece (to name but a few). 2014 is shaping up to be another successful year for Vadney with his ever growing army of fans loving his new sounds and radio show "Reclublic" on DI.FM each month. Robert is shifting into a higher gear and more determined than ever to taking his musical offerings to new heights and wider audiences, which is guaranteed to enhance his reputation as one of the most musically diverse, skilled, creative, enchanting and individual talents in the music scene today!
