Always striving for a unique sound, modern music is built on techniques that have been developed, modified and twisted by countless recording artists, producers and studio engineers. While some were invented by accident and others were developed over generations of technology, these audio effects have shaped music as we know it.
Thanks to Daft Punk, the 1990s French “touch” electronic music scene has its legendary figures, masks and vocoder robot voices and button pushing and all. We’ve got the sound and look, but we’re missing a little fiction to glorify the music’s rise into one of the more influential electronic music movements ever.
Owen Pallett has a great article on Slate explaining why Daft Punk’s Get Lucky was such a huge success through the lenses of classic Western music theory. It may be a little technical, but it’s fascinating stuff if you know a bit about music.
Hooo boy. It seems that not everything Daft Punk touch turns to gold. An unreleased track from our favourite robots and Jay-Z has dropped online, and it leaves a lot to be desired. Take a listen to “Computerized”.
Pharrell’s second solo album G I R L is out in a few days, after only being announced in the middle of this month. The album’s lead single is, of course, “Happy”, but to be honest we’re enjoying the smooth grooves of another track a lot more.
Our favourite musical robots, Daft Punk, picked up four Grammy Awards last night. They also performed their award-winning song Get Lucky with the legendary Stevie Wonder, and it’s so awesome to hear it performed live with mashup elements from other Daft Punk hits. Check it out.
One more time. Even if you wear earplugs, turn off the radio and stay away from noisy clubs, you know Daft Punk’s song ‘One More Time’. It’s one of those songs that seems to be inserted into the memory of every human who has existed since the year 2000. Here, EDM producer Sadowick Production reveals how Daft Punk made the song from a sample the French duo says they didn’t use. It’s quite shocking how easy it was to recreate.
There have been so many remixes of Daft Punk’s Get Lucky, why not one with Aussie politicians and the pundits that follow their every move. This is Get Hockey.
Guys, send help: I’m drowning in funk from Daft Punk’s new clip for Lose Yourself To Dance.
