Aviram Saharai and Matan Kadosh, two seasoned electronic music producers with over a decade of experience, came together to give birth to the visionary project known as Vini Vici. Their mission was to channel their deep-rooted appreciation for the old-school sound, infusing it with their innovative concepts.
Their undeniable talent caught the eye of industry giants Iboga Records and FM Bookings, renowned as the foremost psytrance label and booking agency. They were welcomed into this esteemed family alongside luminaries such as Ace Ventura, Liquid Soul, Ticon, Captain Hook, Atmos, and more.
Vini Vici's journey took off with their inaugural EP, 'Divine Mode,' followed by a string of sensational hits: 'Back Underground,' 'Expender,' 'Anything & Everything,' and 'Veni Vidi Vici.' These tracks dominated Beatport and Iboga Records charts, catapulting Vini Vici to worldwide fame. Their relentless touring schedule covered a multitude of countries, including Brazil, Mexico, South Africa, Switzerland, Finland, France, India, Denmark, Germany, the United States, Italy, Portugal, Austria, Australia, Serbia, the Netherlands, Scotland, the United Kingdom, Ireland, and their homeland, Israel.
Their meteoric rise was validated when Beatport ranked them as the No. 3 Top Artist of 2014. The monumental year 2015 saw the release of their debut album, 'Vini Vici – Future Classics.' It skyrocketed to No. 2 on the Beatport Main Chart (No. 1 in Psytrance). Psyshop and TrackItDown also crowned it as No. 1, while electronic music icons Infected Mushroom hailed them as "the best upcoming psytrance artists at the moment." Armin Van Buuren recognized their brilliance by editing their classic track 'The Tribe' and featuring them repeatedly on his iconic 'ASOT' radio show.
Ending 2015 on a high note, Vini Vici secured the No. 1 spot on Beatport's PsyTrance Artist chart and delivered the Best Selling Track of the year. Their electrifying remix of 'Hilight Tribe – Free Tibet' in early 2016 took the world by storm, amassing over 15,000,000 views on YouTube and 5,000,000 plays on SoundCloud. It ascended to No. 2 on Beatport's Main chart, making history as the first psytrance track to enter the Beatport Main Top 10.
2016 marked a year of unparalleled success, with over 220 performances at prestigious electronic music events across the globe, from A State Of Trance Festival NL and Tomorrowland BE to Electric Daisy Carnival in the USA and Ultra Miami. Vini Vici held their No. 1 spot on Beatport's Psytrance Artist list and Best Selling Track for the second consecutive year, influencing a new generation of psytrance enthusiasts and producers.
In a crowning achievement, Vini Vici collaborated with one of the pioneers of modern electronic music, Armin Van Buuren, and the French band Hilight Tribe on 'Great Spirit.' This massive collaboration conquered the Beatport Main Chart, amassing over 9,000,000 YouTube views and edging them closer to their ultimate goal of spreading psytrance culture and energy worldwide.
In the words of Armin van Buuren: "I've wanted to work with Vini Vici ever since they embarked on the music scene. Few acts have such a well-defined signature sound."
