TECHNO CANNOT POSSIBLY SOUND BETTER, ORIGINAL AND MORE PERSONAL THAN THIS FURIOUS PERFORMANCE
GENRE``````ELECTRO, TECHNO, GODDAMMIT!
I can't say anything better than this: "He’s been hailed as one of the finest techno producers of our time with the release of his debut effort with the Poney EP, fusing the most unthought-about sounds together in a schizophrenic cocktail of sounds that manage to both set dancefloors ablaze or double as the perfect stoner music to relax when tuned into at home. He weaves an intricate tapestry to become the soundtrack to our moods and life, without breaking so much as a sweat."

NICE ALBUM REVIEW:
BY SOUL SEDUCTION
Over the last five years, one man's music has become synonymous with the ultimate euphoric rock'n'roll meltdown. But he doesn't play guitar and he hardly ever listens to rock. Mention the name Vitalic to anyone who's heard his music or witnessed his blistering live show and they'll nod approvingly, hold their hands up and happily concede, "He is the master".
If you know Vitalic's records - the 2005 album ‘OK Cowboy’ and the killer singles ‘La Rock 01’ and ‘My Friend Dario’ spring to mind - then you'll be familiar with the emotional punch this producer can pack. Vitalic's muscular electronic disco powers through techno's canon, snaring the spirit of Giorgio Moroder, Aphex Twin, the Chemical Brothers and Daft Punk as it surges towards some untouched synth-pop nirvana that only Pascal can imagine. Now the master, Pascal Arbez-Nicolas, releases the album thousands of his fans are dying to hear - the first Vitalic live album: In his concerts he revamps his hits, road-tests new tracks, drops the odd cover version, and plays songs that will never make it onto vinyl. Unlike most laptop-prodding dance acts, each Vitalic show is live and unique. ‘V Live’, for example, was recorded at the AB venue in Brussels on October 27, 2006 before 2,000 people. This was Vitalic's first big sold-out show.
There are eight brand new unreleased Vitalic tracks on ‘V Live’. ‘Anatoles’ is a blissful highlight, while ‘Follow The Car’, ‘Rhythm In A Box’ and ‘Fast Lane’ blaze a trail from Dijon to Detroit. And ‘Bambalec’, which Pascal's been playing for some time. Then there are the hits, ‘La Rock 01’, ‘No Fun’, ‘Valletta Fanfares’, ‘My Friend Dario’, let's just flag it up as a major goosebump situation. ‘V Live’ is the finest document yet of France's glorious metal-disco warrior in action.
As live albums go, it's probably the best one that's ever been released in the history of the genre.
