Vitalic - My Friend Dario

ďMy Friend DarioĒ seems to split opinion quite nicely among Vitalic fans, but itís hard to imagine there being a better first single from the upcoming OK Cowboy album. The criticism is that itís all a bit too obvious and itís certainly a fair one, but one that most wonít bother listening to while banging their heads. Big, dumb, and fun isnít the name of the game on the Dima Prefers Newbeat Mix of the track, which finds the track losing the rawk and picking up a pounding bass drum, more vocoder, and a distinctly more Italo feel.
