Out on ALOK’s Controversia Records, the Belgian powerhouse DJ and producer has teamed up with Sem Thomasson for his latest single.
In the plethora of dance music talents that Belgium has on offer, Yves V has consistently been in the upper echelons of the country’s mightily rich music scene. Bridging his roots of underground trance with modern electro and progressive house, Yves V is in a league of his own with a loyal following that goes beyond Europe and the USA.
After breaking into the scene in 2009, Yves V has now racked up collaborations with numerous prominent figures in the music industry, such as Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, Don Diablo, and Sander Van Doorn, to name a few. His high-energy DJ sets have taken him to the biggest arenas in the world, and he is the only DJ to take over Tomorrowland’s famous stage 11 times – a remarkable accomplishment that no other DJ has surpassed thus far.

After his collaboration with Mougleta in April this year, the distinguished Belgian producer has now returned for his fourth single of the year called ‘Sound Of A Beating Heart.’ Joining forces with Sem Thomasson for a deep and emotive multirole track, ‘Sound Of A Beating Heart’ is out now on Alok’s CONTROVERSIA imprint.
Fellow Belgian Sem Thomasson is a young producer and DJ who has gained international attention with his stunning remix work for recognized artists like Clean Bandit, Zara Larsson, Flo Rida, Nelly Furtado, Lost Frequencies, and Steve Aoki. This led to a quick rise in his DJ career with numerous appearances in the best clubs around the globe and a few international residencies under his belt.
“We really wanted to create something that would work production-wise in both a club and for home listening. It’s a deep track that still has these light elements to it, the topline expressing something that is quite moving and relatable, yet the progressive and higher BPM beats across the second half make it something that – we hope – the partiers will love too,” said Yves V & Sem Thomasson regarding the release of their new single.
Yves V returns to CONTROVERSIA for his 5th single, ‘Sound Of A Beating Heart,’ which is a melodic progressive house record that has both emotive and dancefloor elements. Opening with organic melodies, the first half of the track is haunting and minimal, with soulful vocals taking center stage.
The song’s lyrics and melody are written by Nathan Nicholson of The Boxer Rebellion band, who, as a songwriter, has also written for the likes of Kygo, Gryffin, Calum Scott, Claptone, Tinlicker, KC Lights, Hayden James, and more.
