Vitalic – No More Sleep
Almost two and a half years since we had anything from French dance artist Vitalic – here. He’s got a new album coming out in October. Meanwhile there’s a track for free download.
Vitalic is Pascal Arbez. He’s been around for quite a while. His stuff was synths of the the Daft Punk variety but blended with some rock influences. This track is kind of punk dance elctro. But it has a poppy and vibrant edge to it. A bit kiddy rave perhaps but great fun nonetheless.
Blurb: Techno maverick, Vitalic, will release his eagerly anticipated album, ‘Rave Age’ on October 22nd through Different Recordings. Renowned for his blistering, sought after productions, Vitalic will up the ante with an incendiary, brand new live show coming to a venue near you later this year. Mixed by legendary production wizard, Stephane Alf Briat, known for his work with Air and Phoenix, ‘Rave Age’ is a ballsy, firecracker of an album that showcases not just a passion for big room, electro smashers and electronica, but a broad set of influences that stretch from punk and film soundtracks to disco and indie dance. Showcasing a myriad of talent roped in to give this album added punch, it features the vocal efforts of Joe Reeves (Shit Disco) on ‘Fade Away’ and ‘Next I’m Ready’. French starlets Owlle and Rebeka Warrior (Sexy Sushi) appear on ‘Under Your Sun’ and ‘La Mort Sur Le Dancefloor’. Mickael Karkousse from Belgium electro rockers, Goose, lends his skills to ‘Rave Kids Go’. ‘Rave Age’ looks set to be one of the standout releases of 2012 and to kick start the summer party proceedings, Vitalic is giving away a free download of the aptly titled, ‘No More Sleep’, a fiery taster off the album. Get your rave on.
Release date: Jul 25, 2012
