He has had singles featured on Radio 1 as well as having Record of the Week, with Vidorra being described as "One of those people in life who are so talented that it makes you feel a little bit sick".
Vidorra gained immediate support from the likes of Music Week, Record of The Day, Certified UK, IX Daily, Zero Magazine and a number of other well established media outlets. Stepping into 2018, he is now working on some very exciting music.
Vidorra began playing music at the age of 7 as he undertook saxophone lessons at his local primary school. Being an extremely short child his teacher was deeming him to be too short to play however he continued. By age 8 Vidorra had picked up piano and the drums too, later dropping piano to focus on his other two instruments, joining groups including school Concert Bands, Orchestras and Big Bands, as well as a rock band with his school peers, leading to Vidorra being offered Music scholarships to multiple Secondary Schools.
With the likes of most notably Swedish House Mafia showing unimaginable success in the year 2012, Vidorra noticed them via their music videos on MTV and became accustomed to listening to their music daily, which introduced him to a whole new world and pleasure of electronic music, and began his journey into the art of music production.
In 2013 after moving home from boarding school, Vidorra contacted Stoke based Sound and Production Engineer Matthew Ball in order to learn the ropes of production, taking weekly lessons and working from home on his laptop, writing tracks in the week, and taking them to Matt as he learnt to mix and master alongside him. This lead to a number of SoundCloud releases, catching the attention of BBC Introducing from Stoke, his local BBC outlet.
These were followed by a number of independent releases by Vidorra under his own label he began entitled WhatSheOrder, including his track 'Love I Recognise’ featuring Stoke based singer – songwriter Samantha Lloyd, which surpassed 60,000 streams on Spotify before Vidorra pulling his music from distribution as he believed it was was time to relaunch.
Of this new music, his first independent release 'Make Them Pa$$ Out' hit over 80,000 streams on SoundCloud in it’s first couple months of release, followed by 'Talk 2 Me' hitting over 230,000 streams. Then came his single 'After Hours', which was featured on BBC Radio as their 'Record of The Week’ and attracted more attention through social media, including the University of Birmingham Kabaddi team using his music for their promotional videos.
Following these releases, in September 2016 Vidorra dropped 'Get Down', a track which made serious waves in the electronic scene, and too was showcased on BBC Radio 1, along with Vidorra being described as "One of those people in life who are so talented that it makes you feel a little bit sick!”. This also kick started Vidorra’s journey into the BBC Asian Network, as that too became an outlet for his music – Vidorra was born to Indian Parents.
January 2017 came along, and with much music having been in the making during late 2016, January became a busy month. His first single of the year entitled "M.I.A" features American hit singer / songwriter Mickey Shiloh, who was first signed and developed by Rodney "Darkchild" Jerkins. Mickey went on to write and feature on records for Britney Spears, Dada Life, Iggy Azalea, Janet Jackson, Jennifer Lopez, LL Cool J, Pitbull, Twista, Wiz Khalifa and Vic Mensa. This record gained Vidorra immediate support from the likes of Music Week, Record of The Day, Certified UK, IX Daily, Zero Magazine and a number of other well established media outlets.
Up next Vidorra dropped an EP entitled "Riches" with Detroit - born LA rapper Young Twaun, whose notable credits include winning the Jack Daniels competition 'Jack-n-For Beats' judged by Kid Ink, DJ Envy and Angela Yee (HOT 97's - The Breakfast Club). The EP too gained a lot of exposure for the young artist and help expand his fan base through America prior to his trip to LA in July and August of Summer 2017, where he learnt more about the art of recording and mixing in Westlake Studios. During his time in LA Vidorra connected with artists including both Mickey Shiloh and Young Twaun, as well as meeting New Jersey rapper Rezzy, who Vidorra is currently working alongside on a new a project for 2018.
In February 2017 Vidorra won Best Young Act at The Music Awards of Staffordshire and Cheshire. Vidorra was also nominated for Best Electronic Act. These acts of recognition lead him landing a place performing on the mainstage of Lymelight Festival in April 2017. Vidorra released his highly – anticipated single ‘Clarity’ via his own label WhatSheOrder in June 2017. The record features Strawberry Milkshake, a member of the increasingly popular band Spilt Milk Society. Vidorra had been an original member of the band until the end of 2017 when he decided to part ways in order to focus on his solo act.
Now in 2018 Vidorra has a vast number of projects in production. With singles dropping left, right and centre, Vidorra has decided to take matters into his own hands as he now takes more control over the vocal work and sonic engineering of his records, in order to move forward at full speed.
