Sebastian Akchoté (born in Boulogne, France), better known as simply Sebastian (stylized SebastiAn), is a French musician and DJ affiliated with Ed Banger Records. He has worked as a solo electronic musician, as a producer for artists Kavinsky and Uffie, as a film-music composer for Notre Jour Viendra and Steak (in which he also acted), and as a remixer for bands such as Daft Punk, Beastie Boys, Bloc Party, and Nero. Many of his tracks have been used on television and in video games. Akchoté is of Serbian-French heritage and was raised in Paris and Belgrade by a single mother. He is the younger brother of popular independent guitarist Noël Akchoté. His early musical history included both jazz and experimental influences from his older brother as well as hip-hop influences from artists like DJ Premier. He first started producing music around the age of fifteen. While working with a hip-hop band in 2005, Sebastian was given the phone number for Ed Banger Records by one of the band's members, who had found it in a newspaper. After a cold call to label owner Pedro Winter, SebastiAn was signed, and they released the EPs H.A.L. and Smoking Kills (?) later that year.
