French Autobahn Techno/Electro

205. Vitalic - "La Rock 01" (from the Poney EP, International Deejay Gigolo Records, 2001)

It's overwhelming, it is. Vitalic is very good at simulating the feeling of speed, and I can't imagine hearing this in a club and not just turning into a crazy robot hummingbird of some sort. It's relentless, except for that one bit where it relents, but even then you know for a fact that he's about to turn it back up at any second and you better be prepared. Later, on the OK Cowboy album, Vitalic would sandwich "La Rock 01" between two mostly schaffel (4/4 with triplets) tracks and, in retrospect, that might have made it both stand out even more and given us a much needed breath after it.
