Vitalic : Poney EP

If you only buy one dance record this year, buy this – twice... our single of the week, natch.

Vitalic  :  Poney EP

If you only buy one dance record this year, buy this – twice – because you’ll wear out the first copy within days from playing it so much. It’s that good. Vitalic is unassuming Dijon producer and Citizen Records chief Pascal Arbez and the ‘Poney EP’, his worldwide club-conquering debut for DJ Hell’s Gigolo label, boasts four hugely differing tracks of ecstatic Daft Punk-meets-The [a][/a] champagne techno, at least two of which, ‘Poney 1’ and ‘Poney 2’, are inspired by those miserable ponies you see giving beaming children rides at funfairs.



Add ‘You Prefer Cocaine’’s disco Bon Jovi hedonism and the scuzzy euphoria of ‘La Rock O1’ and you have, hands down, one of the most striking – and whistlable – singles in years.
