London's Vanilla Ace exploded on to the scene back in 2012 with releases on Toolroom, MODA, Blockhead, Maquina and Ministry of Sound. With a distinctive production sound somewhere between house and disco lovingly and influenced by New Jack Swing and the 1980's, the newly emerged DJ/Producers tracks had early support from the likes of The Magician, Soulclap and Seth Troxler just to name a few.
Since this breakout on dance music’s most exciting independent labels, Vanilla Ace began to climb dance music’s most notable barometers and was subsequently nominated for ‘Best Breakthrough’ and ‘Best New Artist’ for the Soundplate awards in 2012. Keeping up the momentum, 2013 saw him go from strength to strength with high charting singles on Beatport, Traxsource and Trackitdown and his ‘Musicology’ EP on Andre Crom’s OFF recordings received acclaim from bloggers, DJ's and fans alike.
Vanilla Ace has had a steady stream of releases over the last year including collaborations with Sharam Jay on Bunny Tiger, Chad Tysonon Dear Deer, Barber on ‘Go Deeva’. With a plethora of original material released on Cr2, LouLou Records and remixes on Milk and Sugar, Urbana Recordings and King Street Sounds, Vanilla Ace continued his quest to create quality house music with groove in 2014. He was subsequently named as one of Beatport’s Top 10 best selling Nu Disco/Indie Dance Artist for 2014.
Touring globally, Vanilla Ace in the last year has toured India, America, Australia and Brazil. Playing to over 9,000 people in Green Valley, Brazil last year was his most stand-out show to date. 2015 is set bring a myriad of tour dates and releases including more international tours alongside major festival appearances and a whole load of new remixes, originals and collaborations set to be released.
