Leading on from his huge successes with Afrojack and Icona Pop on ‘We Got That Cool’ that clocked up over 50 million Spotify streams and counting, over to his praised-by-BBC Radio 1 anthem ‘Not So Bad’ that has been Shazam’d almost 1 million times, 2020 is poised to continue on in fine form for Yves V with the irresistible release of ‘Round & Round’.

Landing via Virgin Germany/ Universal, Yves V flexes his talent in concocting masterful productions that demand attention with a deeper yet flourishing take. Sampling seminal, turn-of-the-century trance classic ‘Komodo’ from Mauro Picotto, Yves mutates the original, racing melody into an absorbed extension of slower BPMs that keeps one foot firmly in the club space, it’s brooding build-up of beats interloping with a flawless female vocal that is both sensual and sexy in its far-reaching delivery. “We got some kind of passion / You know the kind of love I’m afraid to lose” grabs your attention from the very first second, growing ever-more intense as it permeates the rhythm and melody with a tactility, spinning the sample of ‘Komodo’ into a wholly original take for 2020.
