One of the most hyped about album releases I have ever seen just got an appropriately epic video showing the first unboxing of the album. It shows both robots in a spaceship taking the Vinyl version of the album out of packaging for the first time ever. We get a glimpse at an epic looking piano artwork.
Then they start playing the record and we get a 15 second preview of what could be the starting track “Give Life Back to Music” from the album
“Get Lucky” the lead single off Daft Punk‘s long awaited newest Random Access Memories has been getting remixed in a lot of ways, but just got possibly the best yet. Italian producer / DJ Razihel takes the funky track and blasts it full of electro / moombahton flavor. The drums are so beefy they will hit you right in the face. The synth and piano work, buildups, and drops all flow together seamlessly for an increidble rendition that does more then justice to the original. He has been nice enough to pass this out for free, enjoy!

The exact details are still be unveiled, but BBC Radio 1 DJ Pete Tong has announced that Daft Punk will be doing something this Friday May 10th at 9pm. Since they did an essential mix back in 97′ there is definite chance for a followup.
We might potentially hear some new tracks off the upcoming album Random Access Memories as we creep on the released date on May 21. This is speculation based off of Pete Tong’s post of course. We will post updates here.
2:15pm UPDATE: We now have news that this Friday Pete Tong will be airing the first audio interview with the duo in 6 years that was recorded at this year’s Coachella. Since it is getting broadcasted via BBC Radio 1 we can hope for a clip of another new track off Random Access Memories. Based on them doing one in the past, an Essential Mix is defintely not unrealistic in the future.
BONUS: As a bonus we have included their 1997 BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix featuring 2 hours of some of their best classic originals, remixes and favorite tracks.

Kanye West dropped a two word tweet “June Eighteen” signifying the upcoming release date for his 6th studio album. Daft Punk, Skrillex, Odd Future, Chief Keef, 2 Chainz, John Legend and more are set to be collaborators on the huge record. Thomas Bangalter of Daft Punk said “Kanye doesn’t give a fuck” while Daft Punk counter part Guy-Manuel added “He’s a good friend”. They have two tracks that sprang from working together. “One of them, I told him it sounded solid and powerful – I envisioned a cube when I heard it” is what Michal Gondry (Director and longtime Daft Punk friend) had to say about hearing the tracks. Stating a music video is already in the works. The album is said to be “even darker and more twisted” then Kanye’s previous LP release. Daft Punk also added that “It was very raw, He was rapping– kind of screaming primally.”
June 18th looks to be a huge release with quite the cast. We will keep you posted on more details as they roll in.

Another day passes, and another new Daft Punk video arrives in support of their upcoming album Random Access Memories. Today we get the 4th episode of The Collaborators series this time interviewing Pharrell. He touches on been overly excited to work with the group and finally having time while in Paris. He touches on creating “Get Lucky” when both of the were in that Nile Rodgers state of mind. He then goes on saying how the song makes him feel like he is on an endless 4am island party. A heavy hitting line, undercutting a majority of music getting produced these days is “You don’t need MDMA for this music” – Pharrell. The song is insanely incredible, and an instant hit. And he is said to have worked with the Robots on some other tracks on the album. Enjoy!

Daft Punk are ‘Bringing Back Soul’ with Random Access Memories: Collaborators Documentary Episode 2 – Todd Edwards [MUST WATCH]Posted in Bangin, Video by nick | Tags: Collaborators, Daft Punk, Documentar, Episode 2, Julian Casabl, Pharrell Williams, Random Access Memories, Robots, Soul, Todd Edwards, Video
“When the music becomes focused on the effects that are being used, or the presets of sounds.. it’s computer.. there’s no soul there. Pretty ironic that two android (robots) are bringing back soul.”
The second episode in a truly iconic video series showing the back story of the mysterious french duo Daft Punk, leading up to the release of their 4th album release, Random Access Memories.
The episode dives into some very interesting topics including Daft Punk talking with past collaborator Todd Edwards. They talk on Daft Punk being in California trying to capture this “West Coast Vibe” s like various classic Amerian acts. Todd moves onto Daft Punk and how they have always been collaborating. Todd sang , co-wrote and co-produced “Face to Face” with Daft Punk. As he put it “They Are Always On to New Challenges”, consistently working with some of the greatest producers and muscians in the world for every one of their projects. For their new album this is no different.
Random Access Memories has an incredible lineup of highly speculated collaborators. The current reported collaborators currently include Strokes singer Julian Casablancas, Noah Lennox (aka Animal Collective’s Panda Bear), Pharrell Williams, Italian disco producer Giorgio Moroder, Chic’s Nile Rodgers, piano virtuoso Chily Gonzales, songwriter Paul Williams, seasoned session guitarist Paul Jackson Jr. (Michael Jackson, Whitney Houston), Todd Edwards, and DJ Falcon.
They have recruited a diverse lineup of real musicians all connecting with different fan bases in different ways. By working with these artists they will be able to transition a raw soulful essence that is missing the growing electronic world more focused on the effects then the actual music. One of the best lines at the end is “When the music becomes focused on the effects that are being used, or the presets of sounds on the computer, there is no soul their. Pretty ironic that two android robots are bringing back soul.” It couldn’t be more true. There is not electronic act with more buzz in the entire world, so there wouldn’t be anyone more suited to bring back soul. To say that their new album Random Access Memories is going to be a game changer, would be a huge understatement. May 21st couldn’t come any sooner. You can pre-order the album through iTunes.
A few weeks back Daft Punk unveiled the first new song to the world in years in the form of a 15 second ad ran during Saturday Night Live. Well fellow French artist Vanderway apart of the L’ordre Collectif decided to reworked the 15 second sample of the track off Random Access Memories into a full on song complete with instruments and live vocals. Aside from being one of the most unique ideas for creating a song, it is incredible. It has a extra chill vibe pumpd full of funky Daft Punk energy. I really can’t stop replaying this track. Check out more info on the new album here. Enjoy!
