"Something Gūd | Artist: VBRTR"

While we love the whole tune, the vocals particularly stand out as giving Something Gūd a somewhat nostalgic quality, reminding us of some old-school pop and R&B tunes of the 90s and early 2000s. Combine that with the futuristic sounds, sampling, and deep house basslines throughout and we think this is easily a hit! - The Beatforest

"VBRTR - "Something Gūd""

The debut single from this Saskatoon duo is the kind of electronic, feel-good song that acts like Chromeo traffic in. Falsetto vocals, 80s synths and a bevy of hooks mean this song probably won’t be leaving your head any time soon. - Grayowl Point

"Localz Only: VBRTR"

Their first, 'Something Gūd' features pitched falsetto vocals and a numbing bassline that is guaranteed to make your head snap back and forth. Appropriately released on Valentines day, the love-ridden lyrics are balanced with that nu-disco electro feel and it's got me wishing it was Friday already. - 50cupsofcoffee


Get your Monday pumping with VBRTR’s new track “Something Gud”. This house track has a bit of nu disco infused in it that’ll make you want to get off your butt and dance. When I heard the intro, I actually thought it was a Justin Bieber sample from his new album. The energy on this song is pretty solid and I love the way the song hits you at the 0:55 mark. It actually has a Years & Years vibe with more synths - Abduction Radiation


This sultry track spikes curiosity in the listener teamed with an attractive beat to get you into the groove. The vocals performed by both LOA and Lee add a flair of nervous excitement into the experience. Production on this track brings in the perfect amount of energy to excel the song to an eargasm, especially in the last hook where the synth hits louder and the bass hits harder. - ELEVEN03


Still working on that hot first release.



Future-R&B DJ/producer duo, hailing from Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, rise from the wheat blanketed fields that are synonymous with country and folk music. They aim to spread the music they love and create to those who are not familiar with it. VBRTR finds production inspiration in artists such as; Mura Masa, Diplo and TroyBoi to name a few. As songwriters, they pull the stylistic charms that made 90’s R&B, instant classics. With this diverse combination, they bring their own feel-good touch to music.

Jonathan Cruz and Leonard Chan, have a combined experience of over 10 years of DJing. They have had residency in major nightclubs and bars in the local scene as well as gigs across Canada and internationally. Together, they use their dynamic, dual-style live show comprised of back-to-back DJ sets accompanied by vocally-driven live performances. VBRTR have captured fans with their unique, combinatory live presence. Most recently, they performed at New Skool Rulez in Rotterdam, Netherlands, both DJing on an outdoor stage and performing their back-to-back DJ/vocal live set at an indoor venue.

Their debut single “Something Gūd”, mastered by Case Trevor of Case Mastering (mastering engineer who has worked with Juno nominated Earl Pereira of The Steadies), has garnered attention world-wide and has amassed over 100,000 streams. It mixes an infectious bass line with smooth and sultry vocals that will get you bobbing your head and tapping your feet. “Something Gūd” embodies the “care-free” attitude one has when they spot the most beautiful person in the room. Using the nervous energy of going up to someone and creating a connection out of nothing.
