“Vyel” is the musical nom de plume of Vincent Lévêque, a Paris-based singer, musician and producer. His name comes from the English phonetic pronunciation of his initials.
Born and raised in Châlons-en-Champagne, France, Vincent began playing French horn as a child, and learned guitar whilst playing in various bands during high school and college.
I started to post my first covers and remixes of well-known songs on SoundCloud and YouTube in 2011. Seven years later, my cover of Coldplay’s hit “Hymn for the Weekend” featuring Sophia Omarji got more than 4,000,000 streams on Spotify and 90,000 views on YouTube.
As a result of the track’s success, BOXINBOX & Lionsize, two DJs from Barcelona then remixed the cover in a 4-minute trap-electro style production, and this remix got more than 2,500,000 streams on Spotify. I still don't believe it. We didn't expect so much enthusiasm!
Many collaborations with other artists led to the release of two other covers such as “Faded”, featuring the French vocalist Emma Lachance and “The Greatest”, featuring Alissa Müller.
Vyel is featured on J Holland and DDRey's single "Love You Anyway", which is his first original release with his own lyrics. Three other singles came out later on, "All Over Again", "Try" and "Today Is What I Live For", supported by Hardwell & Ummet Ozcan.
In March 2020, Vyel releases "Someone", a progressive house collaboration with Chinese producer Vanished, supported by Afrojack, Yves V & R3SPAWN and added to the editorial "Electro Mix" Spotify playlist.
At last, but not least, Vyel ends the year with a beautiful progressive house collaboration on "Leave Me Alone" with the Czech DJ/producer YLLOW, supported by the World Top 100 DJs Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike and Yves V. The track charted at #18 in the Beatport Top 100 Big Room during the 1st week following the release.
Vyel is currently working on new original songs and on his podcast, the Vyel Radio Show.
