Blood Orange Transforms Kavinsky's "Protovision" Into Synth-Heavy Gold

French electro house DJ/producer Kavinsky may be best known for "Nightcall," the track featured prominently in the violent Ryan Gosling art house film Drive, but it was only a preview for what the sunglasses-clad musician had in mind. After recruiting Boys Noize to remix his track "ProtoVision," Kavinsky enlisted Solange collaborator Dev Hynes (aka Blood Orange) to remix the track.

The pulsating rhythms remain, but Hynes adds shimmering, Giorgio Moroder-inspired synths and gorgeous, lilting vocals to create a remix that's better than the original.

The track comes from Kavinsky's upcoming Protovision EP, out February 11. Outrun, his full-length debut, is set for release February 26,
