Reaching more than one million clicks per month just on Soundcloud, Vijay & Sofia Zlatko attain massive stats for an underground artist. From their recent remixes to their first appearance on Tiefblau with “Drop it Like it’s Hot”, the duet sail between Nu-Disco / Deep House to Melodic or Tropical House music, as a journey. Just like in the summer of 2012 in Ibiza where Vijay & Sofia decided to create this duo.
As a couple, in life and behind the decks, Vijay & Sofia have lead the discussions on social networks and dance-floors for 2 years, but the career of Vijay started well before this, thanks to collaborations with the like of Camilo Franco, Nico Pusch and Rodriguez Jr.
An artist can share his life only with another artist, and that's why the duo works so well. Sofia has the soul of an artist that sticks to the skin. A well-chosen word for a tattoo artist, this graphic artist with a strong universe is also a huge fan of music and dance (with more than 12 years as dancer) and Vijay led her to be join him behind the decks and the production desk.
The first success of Vijay & Sofia came from some of these free Remixes and Edits available on Soundcloud for their followers. In two years, they have remixed artists like Asaf Avidan, Daft Punk, John Newman, Kiesza, Ben Howard, 2Pac, A$AP Rocky, Duke Dumont, Gabriel Rios, Buena Vista Social Club, Queen, Nicolas Jaar and many more…. Proof of their talent, Daft Punk’s label contacted Vijay & Sofia to release their remix of Get Lucky on Columbia as a Vinyl Edition.
As well as several free download offers to their fans, the releases on major nu-disco & deep imprints have come out on Warner Music, Tonspiel, Tigers Records, Delicious Recording, Sleazy Deep, Sleazy G, Street King, Tiefblau Records, Dear Deer, Spirit Soul Records, Future Allianz, Love Style, KiezBeats and others… Several times reaching the best sales on Beatport.
With an eye fixed on the future, Vijay & Sofia Zlatko will soon release remixes for Feder, Moby, The Disco Boys, Lexer, Nico Pusch, as well as a few other surprises. Maybe the future of electronic music will be displayed with the Belgian colours? :)
