Life EP

— Released 25th February 2013 on Big Dada

Parisian duo VISION return with their second EP for Big Dada and continue to develop their unique, raw and soulful take on post-dubstep electronic music, smashing classic Detroit techno against the detritus of their French/African/Caribbean heritage to create alien soundscapes which can be beautiful or brutal or both.
