What better way to start 2018 than to give a nod to the 2011 movie, Drive. Directed by Nicolas Winding Refn, the neo-noir film follows the story of a skilled stuntman who moonlights as a getaway driver. Throughout the iconic movie, we also hear a sensational soundtrack, featuring releases from Kavinsky, Electric Youth and more.
To honor the retro-futuristic soundtrack, we’ve compiled a selection of five songs to listen to on long drives. Tune in below and show your support for these artists:
4h30 (À Tous Remix)
Why You Should Listen: À Tous’s remix of this DANGER classic adds a little more edge to the original, powering through with robust bass lines, crisp leads and video game synths. Definitely a tune to add to the music collection!
