In July of 1977 Donna Summer, Giorgio Moroder, and Pete Bellotte collaborated on a track that would forever alter the landscape of dance music. The fruit of their labor was “I Feel Love,” an undeniable number known as the first disco hit, “entirely produced with a synthesizer.”
In recognition of that seminal moment in dance music history, Brooklyn’s Schimanski nightclub will honor the fortieth anniversary of “I Feel Love” with an appearance from Moroder himself on July 27th. Hosted by Mixmag, Casablanca Records, and the Smirnoff Sound Collective, the event will toe the boundary of the past and present in an intimate atmosphere. Best yet, the event is free to attend with an RSVP. Those present for last year’s festivities can attest, it’s sure to be an incredible time.
With lyrics radiating sentiments of inclusivity and acceptance, the track proved to be a sensation in dance culture and revolutionary from a production standpoint.
The iconic track became a key influencer in music production with its synth work and Moroder could be found at the mast of music production after his debut on Casablanca Records, From Here To Eternity—a record that would be instrumental in the conceptualization of house music not long thereafter. Since that debut, Moroder has garnered four Grammys and three Academy Awards for his work.
In the 21st century, Moroder is experiencing a renaissance that has taken his legendary profile to new heights. Recent highlights include a high profile collaboration on Daft Punk‘s celebrated 2013 album Random Access Memories and the release of yet another album in 2015—Déjà Vu which charted #1 on Billboard’s Dance/Electronic Albums Chart.

Earlier this year, Rob Small Mastering shared the news that he had the pleasure of mastering something very special by Daft Punk. Many fans including ourselves figured that Daft Punk would be officially releasing a new song in the coming year, however this isn’t the case. Today (July 25th), Rob Small revealed that he was

This guy just pulled the rug right out from under the rest of the Internet’s insatiable “memeisphere” with a hilarious new viral video series. Social media’s resident tablecloth-pulling expert (yes, that’s a thing), known as Wes P, has launched a sensational new trend scored by Daft Punk’s iconic “One More Time” in which he rips a table cloth out from under a mug and saucer balancing above his shaft punk and disco balls. Right as the track’s canonized chords reach their celebratory break, Wes, with the help of household fixtures like fans and vacuums, swipes the cloth off of himself with meticulous accuracy and speed, striking perhaps the most ingenious purposing of “One More Time” the world wide web has ever seen.

As with most of the Internet’s otherwise useless gold, Wes P’s phenomenally shameless party trick is just something you’ll have to see to understand. Whether this sends you over your Internet limit for the day, or its just the video meme to get you going, we’re hard pressed to deny that this legend may have bequeathed us with one of the greatest online gifts of the year. Our guess is even the Androids themselves would be impressed. Oh, and please do try this at home. Anyone up for making a “Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger” version?

You’ve bought the Daft Punk albums. And the concert tickets. Maybe even a shirt. Who knows, you could’ve even purchased the six-inch helmeted action figures. Grand fans can now buy a drum machine previously owned by the dynamic French duo. The seller, Vintage Analogue Occasion, has decided to part ways with the Roland TR-909 formerly … More »
Two decades after their iconic Homework album helped shape dance music as it is today, Daft Punk can most certainly be defined as “legendary.” They remain one of the most talked-about names in music as a whole, and their rare and sporadic activity leaves millions hanging on their every move.
The most dedicated fans with some money to spare now have a chance to own an prime piece of Daft Punk memorabilia: Thomas Bangalter’s old Roland TR-909. This drum machine in particular was the one used in “Revolution 909” and other songs from Homework. Vintage & Analogue Occasion will be auctioning off the item, which will come with the original presets of “Revolution 909,” sweetening the deal to the winning bidder.
Of course, given the legacy behind the synth, it will come at a lofty expense, though no minimum price has yet been set. In their post announcing the auction, Vintage Analogue & Occasion noted, “Needless to say, it’s a collector’s item, so it’s impossible to set a price.”
Defected Records posted a demo of the vintage drum machine earlier this year, which can be seen below.
