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.

don’t worry. all the downed links can still be listened to on my hypemachine page.
Remember how the inverter died on my Powerbook? Well, the hard drive finally came to a screeching halt as well.
I’m thinking about waiting to see what Jobs has to say this late October. Either way, I’ll probably get a new computer by then.
In the meantime, things may be slow around here.

In remembrance, how about something from an earlier era of tuftsmania. The music on that page won’t work of course, so here’s the re-up.
ps: what’s the deal with the rapid turnover rate of these things? I was expecting at least one more year out of my computer and it was taken care of quite well I might add. fuck apple.
pps: in the meantime, I’m still alive via twitter.
Although it doesn’t lose sight of the original Milkshake track (which can be dangerous), this track is straight Choreo from beginning to end. His twist puts a strange insanity to the track that can’t be overcome.
Things you need to watch out for: cutting synth guitar, hand claps, choreo-hats-snare, toy piano arpeggios. These things will kick you in the face if you’re not dancing.
Will Choreo-mania sweep the nation? With people make a special sign with their hands that stands for ‘Choreo’? Will he get to design his own clothing line with german designer Karl Lagerfeld? Will he play Madison Square Garden? When will people catch on to the fact that ‘dj’s playing live’ is really dj’s playing back cds?
sebastiAn called, he wants you to start disco dancing ASAP. It’s imperative.
The track has signature sebastiAn breaks, decaying snares, and whining synths. He definitely steps up his game in the soul/funk division with some Shaft status strings/trumpets/guitars.
This track will be out on the latest sebastiAn EP/sampler called MMA, out on who else…ed banger soulja boy records
This is why you need to forget what you once knew, and learn how to listen again.

On my way home, I noticed that sebastiAn’s remix of Human After All was too legit to pass on. so I threw it into something with other songs. UUHHH YEAH.
and again, sorry for the obsession with Italy, Paris, Beetroots and Justice respectively. (and daft punk)
OH, exxxxclusive CAJUAN-BEETROOTS blend you saw it here first.
