Boomkat Product Review:
Colourfully branded the "Wagner of disco" by the press release, Vitalic returns with a new single to be lifted from his Flashmob album. 'Second Lives' is massive, anthemic stuff, compressing a ridiculous amount of fizzing synth circuitry into a superb electro-disco format. It's fairly telling that the remixes tend not to deviate to far from the original's melodic essence, and however big and brash it may seem, there's really no getting around how effective 'Second Lives' is. The Mustang reinterpretation is probably the most successful remix of all, injecting a little Italo know-how into the production with subtle usage of live instrumentation. Lifelike's contribution involves a hyper-glossy, more modern approach, keeping the melody in check whilst dishing out zinging panoramic synths, while the Bloody Beetroots mix strives to sound even more inflated than the original, cranking everything up to breaking point and perhaps slightly beyond. Smashing.
