Daft Punk Countdown

daftpunk-noend

The most anticipated album of my life is due to drop tomorrow! My hopes are so so high. The electronic album just doesn’t get done these days and I’m so glad No End  is getting all the hype it deserves. Which is a lot. Daft Punk are undeniably the most influential and important artists in the dance music world. They invented popular electronic music with Homework and defined the modern dance album with Discovery. And with Discovery came the greatest song of all time:

 Human After All  album and tour gave birth to the most played album in my music library, the live album, Alive 2007

Then the two Frenchman directed the entire score for the remake of the visual masterpiece, Tron. It was as much a treat for the ears as it was the eyes.

We’ve heard very little about the new album but any info that comes out get gobbled up by the blogs instantly. We know they have worked with Nile Rodgers. We know they have worked with Chilly Gonzales. We have a 15 second clip that you can listen to on repeat here:

Everyone is beyond excited. I’m also praying for a world tour. Or shit, a concert anywhere. I would go to Mongolia to see Daft Punk.

Throwback Thursday: DAFT PUNK – HOMEWORK

First off lets have a collective squeee! about the Daft  Punk album/tour release date, ok? on three.. 1..2… SQUEEEEE! Alright, I think you get it. Im beyond excited.

But its Thursday so lets take it back to the old school. Of cours by old school I mean the album that defined the new school. Homework was release in 1997 to mixed reviews but proceeded to spark a revolution in modern dance music. Two French kids, barely out of their teens changed the game. To break free of the Euro-dance formular and revive house music, they took the tough, rocky, techno sound of bands like The Chemical Brothers and gave it a four-four beat and melodic, disco-influenced approach.

Lets let them take us back to school.

Bonus: IMO the best live mix of all time: ALIVE 2007
