Offtopic Music: Kavinsky

Kavinsky (né Vincent Belorgey, born 1975) is a French electro house artist, and has released three EPs on the Record Makers label: Teddy Boy in 2006, 1986 a year later and "Nightcall" in 2010. He has been remixed by SebastiAn and others. He toured alongside Daft Punk, The Rapture, Justice, and SebastiAn in 2007. In addition to his music career he has also appeared in several films including Steak, directed by longtime friend Mr. Oizo. The SebastiAn remix of "Testarossa Autodrive" off the 1986 EP is featured in the video game Grand Theft Auto IV.
Kavinsky's production style is very visceral and reminiscent of film soundtracks of the 1980s.

I was about to say the first video is better than most Daft Punks ones, but then I realized it's an AMV. :(

Haha, you're rekindling me love for Kavinski.

I hate to sound like a music dork, but I remember there being a remix of wayfarer by a group called Plus Move that's incredible. I'll try digging it up.

Thanks for the post, man.
