UPDATE: I didn’t know but there’s a video for the song too. And so continues the French obsession with late 80’s American youth culture. Via Jon.
I’ve always enjoyed the French House scene and Alan Braxe is a master of his style. something about his production always sounds so authentic; this could either be an alternate version theme for a Miami-based 80’s detective drama or the greatest song ever. Gotta love the Testarossa-esque guitar-car too.
This single was also included on Upper Cuts, a great compilation of essential Braxe tracks.

This would fit seamlessly into the Beverly Hills Cop soundtrack, or maybe Ghostbusters :-D

I’m a big fan of your work, music and design. As a result I fell into the habit of reading your blog everyday (thanks google reader). I have to say, I love when you post music cause it never fails I at least look ’em up, and generally find something I enjoy.
I do miss your lengthy and detailed posts
like this one
about your monster PC
and to get even further ‘off topic’… perhaps you have your reasons, but have you thought about switching your permalink structure from the standard p=1357 to the %postname%
as always, quite the unwavering fan.

Addicted by Alan Braxe has the best bass line ever in a song.
Oh and Scott have you listened to the Kistune Maison compilations? Theyre really really good.

Rubicon was also featured on DJ Kicks: Erlend Oye which is a terrific album.

Really like this one too, immediately thought of Miami detective ’80´s scenarios.
By the way, whatever happened to the photoshop tricks category in the blog, did that idea die out, hibernate, overslept???
great blog, cheers.

Oh, by he way, the song´s name is Testarossa Autodrive, by music artist Kavinsky, whose got some excellent music/ image retro 80’s work and a cool alter ego.

Nice, I just recently started exploring that recent style of French Disco 80s revival– I call it the new new wave hahaha
A blog that I think covers it very well is Akutoulovesyou (he linked to yours, so maybe you know him Scott?) http://blog.akutoulovesyou.com/ …also, his most recent post is about Muxtape, another very worthwhile link to check out if you haven’t yet!
I got into Alan Braxe when I heard his remix of Kelis – Bossy ….awesome track, like turning coal into a diamond haha
This track is totally tubular

I’m not particularly into this genre of music but it’s good to see Kester Ave. was in the video. I used to live on that street! Go San Fernando Valley.
