Prior to this Friday's highly-anticipated RowdyTown V set, Vanic debuts his first original production, “Samurai” feat. Katy Tiz (Disruptor Records/Sony RAL.) This release marks the first of many original tracks to come from the Vancouver-based producer. He is stepping outside of his adored remixes to give fans “Samurai.”

Listen to the track here:


“Samurai has been in the works for a while, it’s a mix of classic Vanic sounds and a more modern/future style I’ve been inspired by lately, really excited to release this one!"

- Vanic


Vanic merges dubstep, trap and pop, to create a melodic, uplifting and danceable sound. For “Samurai,” he teams up with U.K. pop singer, Katy Tiz, best known for her breakout hit single “The Big Bang” and its follow up, “Whistle (While You Work It).” Vanic is a pioneer of the electronic/pop-mainstream sound so prevalent on today’s airwaves. The production style of his new original song holds true to that of his cult-classic mixes. When crafting his new tracks, he began with the vocals, adding melodic themes one-by-one. Growing up a metal-head, Vanic pulls inspiration from the melodic guitar riffs he once craved, building them into an electronic soundscape.


After inking a deal with Disruptor Records and announcing a fall tour in early 2016, Vanic began exploring original productions. In the first half of 2016, he made the leap from SoundCloud producer to successful touring act alongside Adventure Club, with dates across Canada. This summer, Vanic turned his attention to the festival circuit, spreading vibes at Coachella, Sunset, Moonrise and Firefly Music Festival. Vanic’s live set incites a deep emotional connection with the audience, so much so, that it inspired a proposal during his set at this year’s Moonrise Festival. Vanic’s fall tour, which kicked-off at Electric Zoo and Fashion Meets Music Festival over Labor Day weekend, will take him to twenty-five markets across the U.S., through December.
