Last year when I visited Berlin I had the pleasure of seeing French DJ Kavinsky play live. As well as being hilarious to watch, the music he played was great, and as a friend of the whole Daft Punk, Ed Banger crew I knew his album would probably be great. I wasn’t wrong. It was fun, 80s sounding electro with typical French filter house sounds but also some urgent, storming beats. Now the amusingly named Edwin Van Cleef has started appearing on blogs with some brilliant songs that aren’t far off Kavinsky’s sound. Hell even their artwork is pretty similar.
But this boy is home grown. Popping out of the Leeds music scene, he’s 21 and we think has a bright future ahead. Can’t you just hear Annie Mac hammering these?
