Vito from The Rapture's RBMA Fireside Chat show

Vito Roccoforte from The Rapture did a Fireside Chat radio show as part of Red Bull Music Academy's DFA Special. He talks about their roots in punk music and how the band was formed, organising their first tours without the the help of the internet and and meeting James Murphy and their transition into dance music. The first songs are quite punky and then it gets into more familiar territory. What a great band.
