El regreso de un zombi parisino

La historia va algo así. Era el año 1986 y Monsieur Kavinsky conducía su ferrari Testarossa por las carreteras de Francia. Algo pasó y tuvo un accidente fatal: murió poco después de llegar al hospital y su coche sufrió una suerte similar. Sin embargo, algo sobrenatural sucedió. Veinte años después, Kavinsky regresó de entre los muertos, junto con su inseparable Testarossa. Nadie sabe por qué este zombi se dedica ahora a hacer música electrónica, pero en todo caso su dos EPs son excelentes: Teddy Boy, lanzado a mediados del año pasado, y 1986, el cual aparecerá próximamente. ¿Su música? Imagínate el house de Daft Punk, la electrónica disparatada de Crystal Castles más algo de música ochentera (por ejemplo, el tema de Knight Rider o la canción de Castlevania). Realmente irresistible.

The "Eardrums shall fail" blog said:

"Remixing is raised to art status when you give new life to music, any type of music. To see potential in a boring cut, to push the envelope all the way to different galaxies, to let your mind wander where the original intention left off - all this presumes passion and marquees lighting up over your head as opposed to a mere lightbulb. A writer, most of the time, is a passionate reader first and a remixer of words second. Tago-Mago does that with music. I may not like each and every track but that would be a strange and new feeling anyway. Rarely have I heard a reinvention of music I was, or thought I was, familiar with, in such unexpected ways. His major influence is Can, and the mixes are inspired by a variety of hip hop and electronica artists."
