Victor Y is Sydney producer Paul Suares. His neurosis with music began at around ten, a trained drummer growing up in live bands across the borders of death metal and wistful folk. Realising the potential to curate infinite textures, he found infatuation and prowess in electronic production.
Collaboration and diversification is at the heart of the Victor Y project. Unconfined, tracks are often produced live with musicians in the studio, merging innovative sounds with sincere organic talent for mercurial energies. From delicate chillwave through deep and driving techno, Victor Y’s sound is versatile and holistic with mood, people and place.
Launching the project in 2014, Suares’ debut single Black Light consistently held top positions across the electronic and overall Triple J unearthed charts, and featured in Veronika Maine’s 2014 winter campaign.
Victor Y’s unique live sets have torn strings across outdoor and indoor events across Australia and Germany including performances at Uebel und Gefährlich, Subsonic Music Festival, Rabbits Eat Lettuce Festival, Wittika NYE Festival, S.A.S.H. Sundays, WeLove, Church Of Techno, Chien d’Ours and Cakes, while supporting the likes of Luigi Madonna, Sebastian Leger, Martin Garcia, Louisahhh!!! & Maelstrom, Mihai Popoviciu, YokoO and Bob Moses.
