Vital - Pieces of Time (LP)
“One day I decided to make a Soundcloud page to put up a few bits of my music, I then realised how much I have. There were folders, half-finished projects and many full-up floppy disks. I wondered how much time I had spent on making music. I saw a strong correlation between the quality of music and the quality of life in each time period that was represented. I decided an appropriate name for my debut album would be Pieces of Time!” - Vital.
Vitaly was raised in Potsdam as a child in a family of a Soviet military officer, who temporarily served in the GDR in 1981. His family then moved away to Lithuania in 91’, to Vilnius, the capital city of Lithuania. At this time there was an armed revolution. Its aim was to breakaway from the USSR; it led to the beginning of the collapse of the Soviet Union. The TV in those days ceased to broadcast in Moscow and began to relay satellite channels such as SАТ1, MTV and others. There was a river of new information from advertising, movies, and music in Russia. The first FM radio station where they broadcast foreign music in the new regime was in Lithuania. It was then when Vital first heard Jazzy Jeff and The Fresh Prince “Boom Shake The Room” and Criss Cross “Jump”. After that came all the east coast, west coast hip hop that influenced his music. Vital says, “my young mind had exploded! I'd never heard anything like this!” Watching those early MTV rap videos and the early radio show’s set it all off!
Vital is very good friends with one of the recent KingUnderground members, DJ Boora. Boora sent us a Vital demo but it was actually Vital that first showed Boora how to make beats. Vital put Boora on, then Boora put Vital on.
