FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Producers and DJs Vicetone Find Great Bass with the
Genelec 8351A Tri-Amplified SAM™ Monitor System


— The unconventional and surprisingly compact 8351 Acoustically Coaxial Smart Active Monitor™ (SAM™) is a revolutionary achievement in three-way monitor design that gives the Vicetone duo consistently excellent response in their respective personal studios for EDM —


NATICK, MA, July 7, 2015 — Still only in their early twenties, Ruben Den Boer and Victor Pool, the Dutch DJs together known as Vicetone, have made a substantial impact on the world of EDM. In 2013, they were voted into the DJ Mag Top 100 DJs list for the first time at #60 as a new entry, a year later moving up 24 places on the list, coming in 36th. To date, they’ve logged over 50 million listens on their Soundcloud page, as well as over half a million likes on their Facebook page; have remixed world-renowned artists such as Adele, Calvin Harris, Maroon 5, and Zedd; and have made appearances at festivals TomorrowWorld, Ultra and others. A big part of their production workflow involves two pairs of 8351 Tri-Amplified Smart Active Monitor™ (SAM™) systems from Genelec, the leader in active monitoring technology for over 35 years. They purchased the systems earlier this year through Westlake Pro, in Studio City, California, weeks after they moved from the Netherlands to Los Angeles.

Each of their own personal studios in their home in Pasadena now has a pair of the 8351’s, chosen for Genelec’s legendary sound and incredible accuracy, but in the case of EDM, also for the 8351’s breakthrough Acoustically Concealed Woofers™ (ACW™) technology, which delivers outstanding low-frequency performance without the need for a subwoofer.

“We were amazed by the sound, especially by the low end on the 8351,” says Victor Pool, who says the duo moved finally to Los Angeles after jetting there during every spare moment between gigs. “We auditioned the speakers and that was it — we knew they were the ones.” Pool says they were initially skeptical that the 8351 could reproduce the kind of low end that EDM demands, but that they were even more stunned that the 8351 can reach down as far as it can without distortion and while remaining clear and articulate — all the way down to 32 Hz! “That is an incredible feat, to be able to do that without a subwoofer,” he says. “As a result, our mixes translate very well to sound systems in clubs and festivals all over the world but also on the radio and all streaming platforms. So the Genelec 8351 monitors were very much worth the investment.”
