Vik Toreus is a DJ, remixer, and producer, whose live shows have seen him regarded as one of the most sought-after open format club DJs in his hometown of London. Vik Toreus describes his style as “Hip-House” – an eclectic mix of electro house fused with hip hop and R&B. The result – huge club bangers.
Vik studied guitar and piano from an early age, and as an adult moved into event management and DJing. He’s currently co-director of HVEntertainment.
Musically Vik Toreus produces remixes and mashups with a unique east meets west style, and his mixes have found him in great demand, playing at such venues as the O2 in London, where he performed at various pre and after parties, for the likes of Avicii, and blink-182.
Vik Toreus has brought back an absolute classic with his latest remix, ‘Lambada 2018’, the original of which was released way back in 1989. Mixing the catchy rhythms and vocals of ‘Lambada’, Vik has upped the pitch in various sections, and used a scatter-gun repetition approach in several places. The essence of the song is still there, but brought forward into the 21st century with electronic trills, as well as horns, and a strong snare drum beat.
