Kavinsky lays down the same kind of scary synthwork John Carpenter and Goblin made popular in the late 70s, along with some of the more fleshed-out sounds that backed all those cannibal films. His production style is very visceral and reminiscent of video game music and film soundtracks of the 1980s.
Kavinsky released various EPs which aroused an enthusiastic suspense among the French electro music sphere. Remixed again and again by leading artists of the scene like Mr Oizo, Arpanet, A-Trak, SebastiAn, Justice, Jackson or Breakbot, he was chosen by the Daft Punk to open their world tour Alive in 2007, alongside SebastiAn, The Rapture and Klaxons. But their kinship doesn't end there, as Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo, half of the robot duo, produced the melancholic and hypnotic Nightcall (featured on the film soundtrack for 'Drive'), to which Lovefoxxx from the band CSS lent her voice in 2010.
Kavinsky tour dates listed on Ents24.com since Aug 2008.
