French producer and DJ Kavinsky has provided a song for Grand Theft Auto IV, shared the stage and studio with members of Daft Punk, and amassed over 30 million YouTube views for "Nightcall," which scored the opening credits to Nicolas Refn's 2011 film Drive. That's a pretty impressive CV for a 37-year-old man who goes by Vincent Belorgey by day, admits to producing only four singles in a decade, and still doesn't think of himself as a musician. "I don't know how to play piano. I can't read sheet music. A true musician can do that," he tells me in the second-floor lobby of the Soho Grand over a glass of Balvenie whisky. "Logic is just a big trick. Everybody can make music with that kind of software."
