We recently had the pleasure of getting to know the wildly innovative and highly skilled musician, producer and DJ, VOWED.
VOWED is an on-the-rise and widely revered multi-instrumentalist, producer, and DJ based out of Paris, France. This artist has been steadily gaining exposure and increased visibility for his incredibly versatile music catalog, and has recently developed an incredibly unique take on the EDM and electronica genres. Showcasing an innovative combination of electronica, ambient, dance, chillstep, and trance; this 19 year old artist has certainly crafted a sound that he can distinctly call his own.
VOWED is a relatively new artist on the scene, yet he has already begun to HUGE make waves in the industry. VOWED has been mastering his musical skill since the young age of 9 when he first learned to play the guitar, piano, and drums. Since then, he has been working tirelessly on audio production and DJing. Reviewing his past-catalog, it is clear that VOWED has the musical prowess to compete with the industry giants. At times, the artist collaborates with selectively chosen vocal talent, and what emerges is absolutely brilliant.
Hear for yourself! Listen to the immersive Single “Blue Eyes” here:
VOWED is quickly proving that with his addictive, unique, and highly engaging tunes; music, as an artistic medium, can transcend the label of “commodity” and become something much more intimate and immersive. This artist does not strive to make one specific genre of music, he explains that his music is about everything that sounds and feels good to the ear, and is dedicated to the development of his music through experimentation and blends between atmospheres.
It is important to note that VOWED has taken on the undeniable challenge of being a fully independent artist. We find that one of the most glaring setbacks for new-coming independent artists is the lack of professional mixing and mastering that is necessary to break through into the mainstream markets. This certainly isn’t the case with here.
Listen to the amazing Single “Dark Sky” here:
With independent recording software and equipment growing increasingly more affordable and accessible; the music industry is quickly becoming over-saturated with hobbyists and fame-seekers. Due to this, it is becoming incredibly difficult to be noticed within the endless sea of independent noise. The number of new artists entering the industry every day is growing exponentially. With this increase in industry competition, you’d think there would be a “standard” for things you shouldn’t do if you’re trying to become noticed and successful. Unfortunately, this is not the case…in fact, it seems that a vast majority of new artists have taken the lazy route —- imitate those whom are more successful than you. You would think that this competitive environment would inspire some artists to go against the grain and carve out their own identity, but this is too often not the case. It seems as if fearless, ambitious artists are becoming more and more rare and undiscovered. This is mostly due to an unapologetic desire by most new-coming artists to shamelessly reach into existing successful markets, void of any innovation, and follow an incredibly safe musical formula of commercially appealing and catchy copy of a copy Singles.
While this approach may work well if your goal as an artist is to make fast cash, albeit becoming forgettable, it certainly isn’t the winning formula for industry longevity and lasting notoriety.
The multi-talented and incredibly innovative VOWED is fiercely rebelling against this trend and quickly carving out his own unique identity.
Now, VOWED is back with another incredible Single. The newly released Single entitled “Nobel” showcases VOWED utilizing a diverse palette of influence and crafting a track that effectively reinvents the wheel and carves out an entirely unique sound.

The audio production exhibited in the freshly released Single is nothing short of spectacular. This is especially remarkable considering the music itself is ferociously dynamic and unrestrained; we imagine this must have been very challenging to mix. Each layer within the track is uniquely stunning, with each complex sound given space to breath and evolve.
Impressively, VOWED has already been supported by artists such as Absence, Tomsize, ESKEI 83, Levi & Suiss, Danny Darko, Steve Omen, and many more. Additionally, VOWED has played at numerous revered clubs in Paris including; the VIRGO, the Brazil, Les Planches, Le Badaboum, Le Concorde Atlantique, the MyBoat, La Palmeraie, the Belushi’s and the Seven Spirits opening for Tomsize. This is definitely an artist that you need to WATCH CLOSELY. We are certainly eagerly awaiting what he does next!
