Yves V Shares Tomorrowland Experience, Latest Single “Something Like”, and Plans for 2018 Ahead of Bangkok Show

Tomorrowland resident Yves V has had quite the whirlwind of a year with the curation of his own stage at the Belgian dance event, the success of his radio show V-Sessions, and numerous number of releases with artists from around the globe - “Beautiful Tonight” with Sevenn, “Magnolia” with HIDDN, and “Running Wild” with Futuristic Polar Bears. Yves V was last in Bangkok for his performance at Chang Carnival last February, and this time around we had the pleasure of speaking to him ahead of his show for Insanity Club’s 5th anniversary. Read on to find out what he said regarding his recent Tomorrowland experience, latest single “Something Like”, and plans for the rest of 2018.

Q: You’ve recently taken the stage at Tomorrowland again this year, and the set was amazing! In your opinion what is it about Tomorrowland that sets it apart from all the other festivals?

It has to be the production and the attention to detail, of course, the line-ups are crazy and now with to weekends just keeps getting better! But yeah, I would say the production, it’s a true spectacle; this year’s theme was The Story of Planaxis and was phenomenal with everything from shooting water fountains, to fireballs, floating stages, mushroom backdrops (on my V-Sessions stage!) and even mechanical dragon heads blowing smoke! You truly have to see Tomorrowland to really experience it.

Q: Tell us more about your latest single “Something Like” with Zaeden featuring Jermaine Fleur!

Yeah, we premiered that together at Tomorrowland, too! I had such an exciting time working with Zaeden on the production, he’s really bringing exciting music from just outside of New Delhi and I love the fresh vibe he bought to the table.

Q: Your collaboration “Here with you” with Florian Picasso was put out earlier this year. How did that come about?

We wanted to get into the studio for a while, and the fruits of our labor finally came together, I think at the end of 2017, but we didn’t release it until 2018. We didn’t want to bounce straight in and blow the audience away with bass and synths, but we do both really like working with elevated vocals, so we let that take center stage alongside an intriguing melody before the build-up came in. I was super happy with it, and it was great fun to release on KSHMR’s Dharma label.

Q: How does the electronic dance music in Belgium (and Europe) compare to that of Asia?

It is still fairly new to Asia in the way that it is becoming more central to a part of culture and nightlife over there. It is growing so rapidly and I think that is brilliant, some of the best Top 100 clubs in the world reside in Asia and I’m always so into the sounds I hear over there – I hope to work with some super cool artists from Asia very soon!

Q: What are your thoughts on releasing a full-length YVES V album?

I don’t think I will anytime soon, I find so much enjoyment in releasing singles and remixes, and working with other artists, I feel like dance music is often better suited to a more fast-paced environment that releasing singles fall into.

Q: What do you have in store for the rest of 2018 that you’re able to share with the fans?

A lot of new releases that I can’t talk about yet but keep an eye out on my social media for when I announce! I have a lot of busy dates in Bangkok, Tokyo, Germany, Spain and then Ibiza to round off the Summer before going back home to spend some time with my family. Downtime is so important, but I love seeing you all at my shows and you guys in Bangkok know how to party, see you soon!
