Career[edit]

After his impressive performance at the Tomorrowland mainstage in 2007, Yves V became one of the most popular DJ's and producers worldwide. He also performed at other festivals such as TomorrowWorld, Sensation, mystic valley and Mysteryland. Yves V has also been guest DJ in well-known clubs such as Guaba, Pacha, Anzu Club, Nikki Beach and many others in Indonesia, Malaysia, Brasil, Cyprus, Spain, France, Finland, Italy, Greece and his native country Belgium. Summer 2014, he performed in the greatest club of Brasil and toured India, from Mumbai to New Delhi, Jaipur and Indore.

Yves V broke through with his remix "Insane Pressure" in 2009. His tracks appeal to a broad audience and evolved from underground trance to Beatport Top 100 hits. He collaborated with major artists: "Madagascar" with Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike & Angger Dimas, "Cloudbreaker" with Basto!, "Momentum" with Regi, "Old Skool Sound" with Chuckie and "Direct Dizko" with Sander van Doorn. His remixes also put his stamp on Hiphop artists such as Timbaland, Missy Elliott and Ginuwine.

In 2014, "Wait Till Tomorrow" with Regi ft. Mitch Crown became a big summer hit and the festival anthem of that year. Yves V released his newest single "Octagon" on record label Smash The House in autumn 2015.

His personal heroes Tiësto, Laidback Luke, Roger Sanchez, Diplo, Steve Aoki and Marco V use his tracks in their playlists.
