Review

12″ Before the explosion of the Poney EP - including the hit “La Rock 01″ - in 2001 on International Deejay Gigolo Records, Vitalic had a previous artistic life under the alias of Dima. Today, Pascal Arbez-Nicolas is reactivating the Dima on his own label, Citizen Records. Tracklist 12″: A1. Washing Machine A2. Sounds of Life B1. Tushuss B2. Just Like in 1998 Short Info: Before the explosion of the Poney EP - including the hit “La Rock 01″ - in 2001 on International Deejay Gigolo Records, Vitalic had a previous artistic life under the alias of Dima. Today, Pascal Arbez-Nicolas is reactivating the Dima on his own label, Citizen Records. Flashback. The Dima project blossomed in the thick of the 1990s rave scene in France. “Dima was a techno project based on energy, kind of a crazy project with dark, cerebral music,” explains Pascal. “In the beginning, in 1996, Dima’s sound was almost hard techno during my live shows, close to the martial German sound of the era.” For the four tracks on this first 12″, dubbed “Sounds Of Life", Dima employs the powerful sounds and thick textures of Modal 008 and Arturia MatrixBrute synths. Using these modern machines gives the tracks a contemporary sound, while the structures of the compositions take us back twenty years into the past.
