Kavinsky “Nightcall” EP + Limited Edition Picture Disc Contest

Kavinsky strikes back this March with his Nightcall EP with quite a star-studded electro cast. His Zombie-self with production duties held by the one and only Guy-Man Homem-Christo and mixing duties by SebastiAn. Also featuring vox from CSS’ Lovefoxxx. Then throw in a mysterious Asian remixer, Dustin Nguyen, the famed actor from 21 Jump Street as well as a 9 min epic remix from the one and only Jackson of Jackson & His Computer Band as well as a smooth night burner of a remix by Breakbot and then BAM – an epic comeback for one of the French Electro royalty. Nothing too banger or absurd – just quality electronic music made by a few Frenchies. Check out the track “Pacific Coast Highway” on Soundcloud.

MUSICVISION PHOENIX: Twenty Songs That Changed Our Lives

A fantastic journey into Phoenix’s musical psyche – twenty tunes that changed their lives and influenced the way they sound. I love the way they romanticize and philiosophize in that oh-so French way about Curtis Mayfield and Kenny Rogers. You can really hear the little production techniques and samples that they strive for in their music in these songs. I especially love the 2nd track, Evie Sands’ “I Can’t Let Go” – an epic 2 mins of pop magic that Branco said he and Daft Punk use to cover when they had their band “Darlin” (the name that came from the Beach Boys tune) together for a summer in their teenage years. Such an amazing list of tunes.

Archigram, Detroit by the way of France.


I discovered this track on Crydamoure Presents Waves II, a compilation on Crydamoure, Guy-Manuel Homem-Christo’s fantastic record label that should release more music now. This track Doggystyle is actually a cover of Iggy Pop’s I Wanna Be Your Dog. It is interesting to see this reworking of a classic Detroit rock tune in the style of some hard hitting Detroit techno by the way of France.
