Joe Europe

Joe europe

Vitalik Recordings is said to be found somewhere between the spectral audio space somewhere between London and Ibiza. It is a haven for music that pushes the limits and endeavors to be different. Their successes have been owed to this commitment to producers young and old, which has led to support from names like Pezzner, Glimpse, and Martin Buttrich. Now they are set to release the debut collection of Joe Europe,  with the Joe Europe EP, a selection of dancefloor gold filled with unadulterated sunshine. Having been injured in a high-speed boat accident last year, Joe Europe honed his auditory skills when 75% of his body became incapacitated due to his recovery from injuries. What he ultimately created was a summer time treat with sun drenched grooves and catchy rhythms.

Runner introduces the release with a smooth tempo including vocal snippets caressing uplifting keys and grooves. Things continues the uplifting vibes as its tempo rocks and rolls along a quirkier, jacking groove. Solid claps and retro vibes make Amore a synth-laden, nonchalant groove that offers a warm and deep atmosphere. Attitude combines a moody bass with seductive vocals and a grooved out melody flowing into warm electronic pads. Closing up the release, Standing eases the listener into an all around relaxed gem. Sultry Latin grooves and deep disco vibes make for the perfect closing tune to this must have package.
