Sebastian Akchoté-Bozovic, better known as just Sebastian (earlier stylized as SebastiAn), is a French musician and DJ affiliated with Ed Banger Records. He has worked as a solo electronic musician and as a remixer for bands and singers such as Charlotte Gainsbourg, Daft Punk, Beastie Boys, Bloc Party, and Nero. He has also produced songs for Frank Ocean, Katerine, Kavinsky, Noël Akchoté, Uffie, and Woodkid, and he has composed music for the films Notre Jour Viendra and Steak (in which he also acted). Many of his tracks have been used on television and in video games.
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.
In 2007, Sebastian composed the soundtrack for label-mate Mr. Oizo's feature film "Steak" alongside Sebastien Tellier and Mr. Oizo himself. Sebastian also acted in the film alongside Kavinsky and Sebastien Tellier.
Also that year, Sebastian joined Kavinsky to open with DJ sets for Daft Punk on their Alive 2007 tour.
