Watch These College Kids React To Daft Punk [Video]

This post was originally published on this site

If you’re reading this, you know who Daft Punk are. You know they’re an iconic French duo, considered legends of electronic music, and have been around since the ’90s. You know their names, Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo, you know their albums, and for damn sure you’ll recognize their classic tunes off the first beat… It’s a bit hard not to sound the slightest bit snobbish when they get brought up, because any fan worth their salt just gets it.

So join me in cringing while watching these college kids react to Daft Punk, not really sure what to make of Homework or Interstella 5555, and then gleefully joining in when they’re finally treated to the Grammy-winning “Get Lucky.” Thankfully, the second half of the clip is dedicated to chronicling duo’s rich and influential history, so there’s no need to seek out these plebes and tell them yourself.

Rumored Collaboration Between Daft Punk & Nile Rodgers Surfaces

This post was originally published on this site

If there’s anything 2016 has taught us, it’s that more Daft Punk music is never a bad thing. Though the robots only came out with two new songs this year (and even then, they were only features), we could feel their return in our bones and it just hurts so good.

Now, if this Unreleased Daft Punk Soundcloud channel is to be believed, a new (or old) track from the Random Access Memories era has leaked, featuring Nile Rodgers on guitar and vocalist Lemar. We’re obviously excited when we come across something like a Daft Punk leak, but understandably skeptical at the same time. “Feel Good,” however, sounds extremely legitimate. Between the slick guitar licks and the general vibe of the track, not to mention the production quality, we wouldn’t be surprised if this was a legitimate leak.

And if it’s not, then damn, whoever made this is good.

Watch This Multi-Instrumentalist Turn ‘Starboy’ Into A Classic Daft Punk Track

Plenty has been said about The Weeknd’s “Starboy,” both praise and critique alike, and among those sentiments is the idea that Daft Punk didn’t stay true to their sound – just one opinion out of many. Well, Samuraiguitarist has taken the hit single and morphed it into the classic ambience of Random Access Memories.

Building off the style of Nile Rodgers’ funky progressions, Samuraiguitarist traces the track’s bassline akin to 2013’s “Get Lucky,” and voicing the lyrics through a talkbox throughout the track brilliantly recreates a classic Daft Punk feel. There are even moments of crackled vinyl dispersed through the cover. If you’re curious to hear what “Starboy” may have sounded like in a parallel universe, watch the video below.

Rockabye Baby Music seeks to appease both parents and little children by turning popular pop anthems into mellowed-out lullabies to assist in bedtime duties. Artists ranging from Pink Floyd, to Metallica, to Coldplay have all been subjected to the lullaby remix treatment over the years, allowing for a nostalgic listening experience for parents while simultaneously putting a child to sleep.

Daft Punk’s lead single from Random Access Memories, “Get Lucky,” now finds itself among the most recent batch of tunes receiving a lullaby re-work, as part of Rockabye Baby Music’s 10-year anniversary compilation which comes out on October 14.

Listen as the original’s guitar riffs and vocals get transformed into a soothing landscapes of xylophone, rattles, and gentle strings.
