Victor Van Vugt


Having spent his teenage years playing in bands around Melbourne, Australia, Victor somehow found his way to becoming the producer of the bands he had played on bills with, including The Go Betweens, The Triffids, The Laughing Clowns, The Saints, The Scientists etc. and the big artist to come out of Australia at that time, Nick Cave.

After going to film school, Victor found himself working in London with some of the great post punk bands from around the world – including The Pouges, The Fall, Sonic Youth, Einstrüzende Neubauten.... even meeting his match with Lee Scratch Perry. Victor continued to look for a diverse range of artists to keep him interested and challenged. He moved to NYC in the 90’s where he continued work with wide range of artists around the world such as – Beth Orton, PJ Harvey, Gogol Bordello, Athlete, Nick Cave and recently Chrissie Hynde. With his newly set up NYC studio the mixing offers came and he used his years as a producer as a great background to the modern way of making records - mixing/polishing other people’s records that were recorded around the world.

Victor spent the last few years focusing on a long time labor of love - a live music TV show which he created, produced and directed. But ultimately being away from music production was not where Victor wanted to be so he decided to re-start and has now moved to Berlin, set up a studio, has a bunch of new records about to be released and is back!
