Kavinsky Beats Daft Punk To The Disco
While every music nerd in the galaxy has been geeking out over the new 15 second sound clip from some unreleased, unnamed Daft Punk song, I've been jamming to something that you can actually listen to. While the Daft Punk robots are upgrading to an new operating system, equally French house producer Kavinsky dropped "OutRun," a collection of heavy hitting vintage disco tunes. You may recognize Kavinsky as a key music contributor behind "Drive," the 2011 Ryan Gosling/Carey Mulligan movie. In fact, "Nightcall," the albums signature tune also appears on "OutRun."
The album is very 1980s, very synthy, and actually available. My guess is "OutRun" looks like and sounds like whatever new stuff Daft Punk will drop in May so the question is, why wait around when something equally good already exists?
