Boomkat Product Review:
Vita is the alias for Mille Plateaux's critically acclaimed recording artist and Mitek founder Mikael Stavostand. One of the new faces to emerge out of the musical hotbed of Stockholm, Sweden, Stavostand has been featured as a key figure for his unique interpretations of club techno and micro-beats as well as producing some of the most essential experimental electronic music of the past year. This is an incredibly warm album, the dub influence kept to a simmer (courtesy of luscious rolling basslines) and an array of highrise rays of warm washes and drift tones. The clicks and pops are, indeed, present, but the empahsis here is very much on the layering of organic tones. If you're into SND, Fraben, Andreas Tillijander, Colgne's 'Pop Ambient' scene etc, this is very much a record for you. Recommended.
