Artist profile: Vitalic
Vitalic was born in 1973 in Borodianka-Ukraine-in a traditionnal Ukrainian family living from the selling of animal furs.
In 1989, after the falling down of the Berlin wall, he could emigrate to Eastern Germany with his dog -Mini Robot- where he survived with parttime jobs and even masculine prostitution.
Little by little, Vitalic decided to stop playing the "Trubka", a traditional Ukrainian instrument, and started to compose electronic music in a collective near Munich.
Then Kobayashi Records (France) released his first EP in June 2001, followed by Gigolo Records (Munich) with the Poney EP - a record about the pain of ponies in funfairs.
