“The Sidemen” member continues his insurmountable foray into electronic music.
Following the British YouTube star’s first foray into electronic music with the Alan Walker and Dash Berlin collaboration “Better Off Alone (Part III)”, “Humans” will be Vikkstar‘s debut original production and something of a statement for the next iteration of his already rich and varied career.
As 1/7 of Europe’s most successful creator group, The Sidemen, Vikkstar is no stranger to online success – in addition to his online profile, Vikkstar has made a name for himself as an in-demand presenter for global brands including McLaren, Virgin Media, and EE. With over 50 million followers and 264 million monthly YouTube views across combined socials, his fans have already embraced his new musical ambitions and 3.5 million monthly Spotify listeners are eagerly awaiting his next release.
“Humans” is an organic product of Vik’s own passion for dance music, his experiences in clubs and at festivals, and of strong friendships with globally renowned artists like Alan Walker and Afrojack. Moving away from the camera and into the music studio was a natural progression, an unpressured experience that has allowed him to experiment and find a sound that feels right. As a result, “Humans” is a big room anthem, with a hooky earworm of a vocal that channels clear influences from contemporaries such as Avicii and Calvin Harris.
“I’m really excited for my first single release as an artist. This isn’t something I ever expected to be doing, but in all honestly that has been the case with most of my career so far! Having such a supportive audience gives me great freedom to try new things and I’m very excited to see their reaction to the release. The track itself has a strong message that should hopefully resonate with the audience and people who come across it. This is mirrored by the music video which we’re also very happy with.” – Vikkstar
His early steps into the music industry have been reflective of his inimitable profile and fanbase, with his debut mainstage appearances at Tomorrowland 2022 & EDC Orlando 2023, and subsequent sell-out headline sets at the iconic Ministry of Sound in London. Now able to list sets at Omnia Las Vegas alongside a sold-out UK university tour, clubbers around the world have turned up in their thousands to experience this next chapter.
