Vitalic, aka Dijonaise electronica artist Pascal Arbez responsible for underground club anthems like “La Rock 01,” is touring through the UK and Western Europe this fall, spreading the blips and beats of his just-dropped sophomore album Flashmob, available today in the US via 101 Distribution.

Upbeat and dark, Vitalic’s music is everything that is a good night out. He dabbles in afrobeat without relying on the trend too much, guaranteeing sultry, sweeping club music that stays true to classic techno and electronica, as in “Poison Lips.” Some songs on the new album are lifted with vocal melodies that sound like digitized Donna Summer tracks, adding disco to the mix, always supported by dark synths and a fluctuating catalogue of percussive beeps. It’s refreshing, vitalizing if you will, and seems to re-animate the electronic genre.
