Kavinsky, aka Vincent Belorgey, is best known for "Nightcall", the impossibly magnificent, Daft Punk-produced slo-mo electro-disco theme from Drive.

His debut album Outrun is named after retro driving game, and constitutes an electronic hymn to the motor car. Reminiscent not only of Felix Da Housecat and Vitalic but also Tangerine Dream and Vangelis, it induces a heady sense of perpetual forward motion, whether graceful or full pelt. Stunning.
