Black V Neck

After making music together for years, Miami natives Ian and Julian decided to form the powerhouse duo Black V Neck in 2017.The name satirizes the notion that artists have to “fit in” to certain sub genres and gimmicks which is shown through their novel, inventive, and uncompromising take on house music.

Shiba San discovered the duo and signed their first big release on his label BasementLeak. Shortly after, they appeared on Claude VonStroke’s radar due to their quality of production and creativity, which led to the release of the Mouth Music EP on DIRTYBIRD. Both tracks, ‘Sex, Drugs, Alcohol’ and ‘Mouth Music’, remained on Beatport’s Top 100 Tech House chart for weeks, solidifying Black V Neck’s ability to consistently deliver captivating music. ‘Sex, Drugs, Alcohol’ has since collected over 21 million streams and is played from Clubs to TikToks around the world.

Black V Neck tracks have made their way into festival performances, club sets, and radio shows worldwide. Their music has continuous support from underground artists such as Claude VonStroke, Chris Lake, Green Velvet, Lee Foss, Shiba San, to global acts such as Afrojack, Diplo, Marshmello, Tchami and DJ Snake.

2020 did not slow the boys down; They signed their first Defected release, remixing the summer hit ‘Deep End’, which has become their first track to break through Beatport’s Top 10.

Ian and Julian continue to work diligently, having recently released records on Sink or Swim, Repopulate Mars, Confession, Insomniac Records, and OWSLA. Black V Neck has remixed tracks from David Guetta, Afrojack, Salvatore Ganacci, Volac, JohnSummit, Tommy Trash, and Walker & Royce with more to come.

Their productions & DJ skills have led them to play some of the largest festivals & Clubs in the world such as EDC Vegas & Orlando, LIVMiami, Academy LA, MDL Beast Festival, Countdown, and many more.
