This week’s Spotlight artist is Irish electronic pop artist Viscose.
“Fedora’s and fearlessness is all you need to make your mark” . Being the writer and producer of all his music, Viscose’s love of dance, house and pop stems from his love of LGBT and pop culture. Viscose draws inspiration from Lady Gaga, Kylie Minogue and Dagny while colliding it with sophisticated sultry synth sounds, his music is danceable and full of groove. As a skilled producer, Viscose has produced various successful songs for other artists; Cat (slipping), Mack Johan (Encore) & Apollo Monroe (soda pop.) Since taking a year out to refine his production skills, collaborate and create magic, Viscose is set for a jam packed year full of exciting releases, visuals and projects. Viscose’s devotion to electronic dance music has shaped him into the eclectic, fashion forward visionary that he is today. “There’s something about expressing a certain feeling not only through words but actually through the texture and format of instrumentation. Dance music doesn’t always have to have a happy story behind it.”.
Viscose has released his latest single ‘Been There’ on the 30th of April.
It was written and produced by Viscose and is a fresh house-pop song that was released just in time for summer! Co-produced by Steve James, who’s worked with Justin Bieber, Little Mix and Martin Garrix, the song sounds polished, slick and radio ready.
As an LGBT artist, Viscose wants to make his mark on pop music and remind listeners where house music originated from. The song is about liberation, acceptance and not being afraid to put your needs before others. Essentially a self-care anthem. This is only the beginning of what Viscose has planned for this year.
