With an unforgettable look and an intoxicating electronic groove, intriguing pop newcomer Vitesse X joins with esteemed vaporwave label 100% Electronica for new single "Potential Energy". With equal parts euphoria and whirlwind drum sequences this Brooklyn producer delivers an ethereal and expressive club anthem that is perfect for your favorite blissed out dream-trance playlist.

The intoxicating Jennifer Medina-directed video features Vitesse X vibing against a series of dynamic backdrops, with sharp colors and flashing lights from both the club and the city at night. This series of images is both intimate and cold, mirroring her own mercurial aesthetic with equal helpings of sensuality and mysterious futurism.

Vitesse X fell in love with the expansive possibilities of music when she was a teenager listening to acts like Radiohead, Aphex Twin, and Four Tet. Going to college in Virginia she began playing guitar and bass in punk, shoegaze, and chillwave outfits. It was in that scene that she first met and played shows with 100% Electronica’s eventual founder George Clanton, who was then performing as Mirror Kisses. After relocating to New York City, Vitesse X became an in-demand name on the local scene and developed her technical abilities as an engineer and producer. Her passion for surreal, otherworldly rave-inspired music has grown organically from lived experience. She embodies the euphoric spirit of the dancefloor and the mindset that takes over when you’ve spent hours at the club moving your body until the sun rises. It is in this moment that the music of Vitesse X becomes a soundtrack for the infinite possibilities of life.
