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 its perceived norms, with innumerable remixes on high profile labels and critically acclaimed original compositions already under his belt.
From his ground-breaking fusion of Trance with Goth/Horror overtones, Robert is 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 this music style by his fans worldwide, his work has been supported worldwide by the likes of Tiesto, Paul Van Dyk, Armin Van Buuren, Above & Beyond, Markus Schulz and just about every top/notable name in the EDM scene but his legendary association and work with Paul Oakenfold is most noted. 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 feel the constraints of the EDM scene and needed a new challenge. He went back to his Rock roots, focusing on the live Alternative/Progressive Rock music scene and formed band projects which yielded some notable recording and performance successes. 2013 saw Vadney furthering his original dark Trance sound but also fully introducing his alias “Robbie V” taking on the more commercial side of EDM and lastly, late 2013 finally saw the launch of his own record label “Reclublic Recordings” which focuses on releasing innovative progressive Trance/EDM music by artists who can create and carry on the sound which Robert loves. In 2015, Robert returns to the EDM’s underground Trance scene with a fresh outlook and showcases his new sounds to the world. These new sounds have brought together Robert’s favorite music styles and are inspired by classic underground dance music and the 90s Rave scene and showcase the next stage of his musical evolution.
Aside from his class A production and lyric-writing skills, Robert is a multi-instrumentalist who can play various instruments like piano/keys, guitar, bass, drums and has composed scores for various visual projects. He’s been mentioned in the world-renowned magazine “Rolling Stone” as an artist to look out for and as if this wasn’t enough, he also found time to obtain a first class honors degree in Music Technology from Preston University. Lastly, not forgetting he’s 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. Another successful year is shaping for Vadney with his growing army of fans loving his new sounds, brand and monthly radio show “RECLUBLIC”. Robert is shifting into a higher gear and 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, individual talents in the music scene!
