We caught up with french electronic music connoisseur Vitalic ahead of his performance at the festival this year to discuss his latest album ‘Voyager’ and find out what we can expect from his Live performance in the B.Traits Selects arena on Day Two…
What’s been going on in the world of Vitalic this summer?
I've been playing really big festivals like Sonar back in June which was a highlight, it’s been a great summer so far. Tomorrow I’m going to Berlin for a festival and the day after I’m in Poland.
I can see that you played with us at SW4 back in 2010.. Do you remember much from that performance?
I remember much about the rain to tell you the truth haha, I remember it was full of mud.. It was really nice but it was 7 years ago, a long time. It was a good vibe yes, I remember the stage was really nice and Luciano was playing also. It was a really good moment.
How has your style developed over the past 7 years?
I think you know at the time, 7 years ago, it was the end of an electro clash and the beginning of a new sound, it was a bit more rock in a way and now it’s more on the melody and a little more trippy.
I know you’ve played in London quite frequently over the years, can you tell us a bit about your connection with the UK and your past experiences playing here?
I played at Electric Brixton some months ago, that was really a blast, I love the venue it’s a really old style and it was a great atmosphere and definitely something special. It was really really amazing. Also I used to play a lot in Glasgow and in the North of England. I had a great tour with 2manyDJs but yeah over the years I've been playing many shows over the UK.
