Virginia To Vegas- “Lights Out” (Wax Records): Electronica-rooted artist Derik Baker (aka Virginia To Vegas) burst onto the scene with his debut single, “We Are Stars ft. Alyssa Reid.” The chart-topper notched platinum sales and was followed by the EP Volume 1.
The debut VTV full-length album, Utopian, will be released on Dec. 2, and this advance single is off to a great start, quickly climbing the Top 40 and Hot AC radio charts. It is currently #8 on the Billboard Emerging Canadian Artist Chart, #12 at CHR/Top 40 and #19 All Format.
The well-produced track is a pleasing combination of pulsing beats and Baker's gently affecting vocals.
Virginia To Vegas plays The Mod Club in Toronto on Nov. 27.
