Got a couple new things at the top of my inbox early this week that just needed a quick “SUP”.
Let me break it down. New Kavinsky. New Vitalic.
Let me start in reverse alphabetical order. Vitalic. He’s been on a steady roll lately, amiright? (check here) This new one off his latest “Second Lives EP” is for the lack of anything better. awesome. It has his very characteristic background reverb with with muted syncopated cymbal percussion –reminiscent of one of my favorite classics “My Friend Dario”, but with so much more depth. When you go buy the EP (out 03/22) make sure you play the Colonel Up and Mister Down remix a million times. ACES!
Now Kavinsky. This track is so mellow and really a big departure from his old stuff IMO. It was produced by Guy-Manuel de Homem Christo (longest fucking name ever??) and the final mixdown was graced by SebastiAn (the french community is in a real circle jerk also, huh?). You can definitely hear stylistic touches to the track from the 2 and I think their lending hands were essential to make this track what you’re hearing right now. Their styles are so unique that it’s really just undoubtable.
There are vocals from none other than Lovefoxxx our favorite darling from CSS and I want to say the modulated vocals in the beginning are from Vincent Belorgey (aka Kavinsky. He kind of sounds like a douche in real life, but ultra nice, promise!). Anyone think otherwise?
Either way, Kavinsky seems to be chugging steadily along in his 80’s videogame-ferrarri testarossa-dreamland just fine, and I am not complaining about it one bit.
Buy it here as a limited edish picture disc.

This is from Vitalic’s previous LP release “Flashmob”. See? on a steady roll.
Here’s the other released track from Kavinsky’s latest, “Pacific Coast Highway”. Complete with awkward/cheesy arcade shooting game narratives.
