To be honest, that is the only thing I've ever heard from him, and only because I searched for KC covers. Call me boring but just not my kind of music.
There is about one exception to that kind of music
that I like, the remixed version of TQ - Crockett's Theme https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9QLa_wZHr7M
Still retains the killer licks (2:54-3:12) while not seeming too 80s.
Remember, those are not guitars at 0:39-0:41 / 0:49-0:51, that's the Jimi Hendrix of the keyboards Jan with his stack of Marshalls and synth.
