Video: Kavinsky – Renegade feat. Cautious Clay

Kavinsky returns with “Renegade” – his first new music since 2013. The track, which features vocals from Cautious Clay, is from the acclaimed French producer’s forthcoming album, Reborn. Combining a dark mood with a thunderous groove, Kavinsky reinvents his trademark sound and offers an update of the French Touch movement on “Renegade.” Released today via Astralwerks, “Renegade” is available for download / streaming HERE.

Greatly inspired by cinema, Kavinsky has always intertwined music and storytelling. His breakthrough hit “Nightcall” soundtracked the opening moments of the film Drive, so it’s only fitting that the official video for “Renegade” unfurls like a condensed feature film. After three criminals send him flying through the windows of a skyscraper, Kavinsky emerges with superpowers and exacts his revenge. View below.

Alexandre Courtès (Daft Punk, U2, Jamiroquai), who directed the video, explains, “I wanted to include Kavinsky in a real movie where he is the hero. With all the love and references he and I share, we pay homage to the film craft we cherish. Kavinsky is back with a bang !…. wait, no actually it’s three bangs.”

Kavinsky produced “Renegade” at Paris’ legendary Motorbass studio in collaboration with Victor Le Masne and Gaspard Augé (half of the group Justice). The three producers wrote the song with Cautious Clay.
