Forged in the cavernous belly of Space's Discotheque Vitalik was the name that captured the spirit of an emerging new balearic party collective orchestrating some of Ibiza's more daring raves. We Love… originally enlisted Vitalik to kick off their then 22 hour marathon party and there in the biggest Sunday after-party in Ibiza was born. As the after parties became a part of Ibiza's history Vitalik morphed, harnessing its energy, focussing it directly into the musical outlet that became Vitalik Recordings. On the 2nd of September kicking off what is possibly the biggest terrace line-up of the season with a back to back set will be label boss and We Love resident Ryan O Gorman and WL newest resident and Vitalik favorite jozif. Caribou will also be joining Fourtet for a very special back to back set. Carl Craig and Pail Woolford complete the terrace line-up.

Marking the turning of the labels 4th birthday Vitalik have enlisted some of their most capable sonic technicians to compile a rather special collection of edits.
Series one of the edits features edits from Pezzner, Anonym, Soulade, Franklin De Costa who all make a slightly left of center take on classic cuts from artists like Curtis Mayfeild, Bob James and Talking heads. Each producer’s edit carries a distinct signiature of their individual and unique production style. The collection is refreshing absent of any disco edits. Series one of the edit is available for free via Pulse Radio’s facebook app

2. Bill Withers | Grandma's Hands (Soulade Edit)
3. Bob James | Nautilus (Franklin De Costa Tool Edit)
