Just when I thought I had heard it all, a group called Vitalic comes out of nowhere to literally leave me speechless. My friend Ryan described this group as the bastard son of Justice and Lindstrom... I was immediately intrigued by that description and downloaded the new album "Flashmob. (mini-mix audio :)" I had just enough time to transfer it over to my phone before going to the hawks game.
The hawks game turned into a night at Filter with George Acosta. The George Acosta set turned into a late night with friends. Around 3:30 am I remembered the Vitalic download from earlier and had Chris throw it on the surround sound. The first track, "See the Sea" start of with a glitched out sequence before the grimy baseline rolls through the track. I looked at Chris, Chris looked at Jorge, and Jorge looked at me. All three of us were speechless. After the three minute mark, the track breaks into a classic italio disco breakdown. We couldn't stop from dancing and smiling. Each track was more surprising than the previous. I have thought long and hard about how to describe Vitalic since Friday night but one word keeps coming back into my head, "EPIC."
