Kavinsky, everyone’s favorite french zombie DJ, recently released his Blazer EP on July 1st. The limited edition picture disk record includes his greatest hits like Testarossa Autodrive, Grand Canyon, and Wayfarer. The standout track on the record is 1986, which was originally released as a demo version on his 1986 EP back in 2007. The track features Kavinsky’s signature Night Rider-esque synthesized progressions which he is said to often blast in his red ferrari as he speeds down the streets of Paris by night.

If legend is to be believed, Kavinsky is the world’s best-known zombie DJ and musician. Others will tell you he’s the alias of Vincent Belorgey, protege of French beatmaster Mr. Oizo, friend and tourmate of Daft Punk and the Ed Banger crew. Whichever story you choose to believe, Kavinsky’s new EP for Fool’s Gold — his first domestic release — is a total no-brainer.
Updating vintage Moroder and Miami Vice sounds with a French touch, Blazer features three of the possibly undead producer’s finest cuts from his import releases — “Testarossa Autodrive(1),” “Dead Cruiser(2),” “Grand Canyon(3)” — and seals the deal with the exclusive unreleased gem “1986(4).” The whole thing is wrapped up in a spiffy Ferarri tire pic disc designed by (who else?) Dust La Rock, and is strictly limited to 1,000 copies.
