- REVIEW: The Battle of 'What else is there?' Thin White Duke vs. Vitalic.
Royskopp - "What else is there?" (Thin White Duke Remix
Royskopp - "What else is there?" (Vitalic Remix)

At first I only payed attention to the vitalic remix. Being a fan of Vitalic and then looking at the Thin White Duke remix and thinking that after Post Madge, it might a little on the soft side in comparison. The Vitalic remix really in my opinion shreds. it bangs so hard you cant help but nod your head and pump your fist in the air. vitalic busts out another slamming track, with all the vitalic maneuvers. a hard ass kick that drops right before the freak out and dualing synths to rip it up with the snap of that snare. this track just makes me want to do back flips.
when i finally listened to the thin white duke remix, (jacques lu cont, les thymes digitales), it was perfect timing. it was a cold, dark night right after i got out of work and i was walking away from the subway on my way to visit a friend at work, and for that type of situation, this really is an amazing track. starts off real spacey and the vocals are touched with some reverb. this track is real smooth and may i say dreamy. puts you in that mood, you want to thow your hands up and close your eyes, think about the one you love, sing along, and dance the night away. and if you're not in the club and you find yourself walking along the streets to go visit the person you have a crush on, you may find yourself blindly walk into the streets. so be careful.

WINNER: Vitalic.

you really need to practice more. the mix is REALLY bad. the transitions aren't even on time. i think i can hear dj assault and diplo shedding a tear while they listen to this mix...and they want their records back, too. either go back to the drawing board or leave dj'ing to the professionals.
