There's no denying the international star power between electronic music pioneers Daft Punk and hip-hops great Jay-Z, but unbeknownst to many of us untill today the iconic artists came together to collaborate on a track during a supposed studio session with Kanye West producing for the Tron Soundtrack. "Computerized" is every bit as awesome as you'd expect, with Daft Punk turning back time to lay down a classic electro funk beat similar to pre-Random Access Memories days with splashes of catchy synth patterns and keyboard samples galore while Jay-Z lays down verse after verse with flawless ease.
This potential blockbuster has every media source searching for the factual nature of this track since it surfaced over the weekend, but unlike most bootlegs previously touted as Daft Punk originals, this sounds extremely legitimate and also raises the question of why this was track was scraped from a release. Stream the track below and stay on the look for more info as soon it becomes available. Enjoy

Daft Punk Win 5 Grammys Including ‘Album of the Year’ With Special Live Performance (Video) with Pharrell and Stevie WonderPosted in Bangin, News, Video by nick | Tags: Daft Punk, Get Lucky, Grammys, Nile Rodgers, Pharrell, Pharrell Williams, Random Access Memories, Stevie Wonder, Video
Wow Daft Punk just did some serious damage at the 56th Annual Grammys, taking home all 5 awards they were nominated for. The most earth shattering of them all was taking home the most prestegious award of the entire ceremony, Album of the Year for their album Random Access Memories; as well as Best Dance / Electronica Album, Best Engineered Album, Record Of The Year and Best Pop Duo / Group Performance for their single with Pharrell Williams and Nile Rodgers , "Get Lucky". This is a landmark statement for electronic music overall as it is the first ever electronic / dance album in the Grammys history to get both nominated and win best album overall.
The producer / DJ duo also made their triumphant return to the stage with their first performance in years on TV worldwide as they took to the stage with assistance from Pharrell (Wearing an oversized hat that stirred up Twitter "Beef" with Arby's), Nile Rodgers and even brought out musical legend Stevie Wonder for an energetic performance that had a audience full of celebrities rocking out. We can hope this means we can expect some Daft Punk live shows possibly by the end of the year? Maybe 2015? At least this restores faith that the French dream team still have an interest in playing more live shows in the future.

Skrillex has jump started his 2014 by taking a trip down under to perform a string of shows in Australia while jumping in the studio with Flume and Emoh Instead of What So Not. The Grammy winning Producer / DJ made a pit stop at the infamous Triple J radio studio’s and shared juicy details on what he has in store for the music community, the first time he “lost his shit” seeing Daft Punk live, and hitting the studio with Flume and Emoh of What So Not (pictured above).
“I’ll be seeing Flume into the studio tomorrow, so maybe we’ll make something, who knows?…. I mean technically What So Not is the artist on the [Shore Thing] lineup, so maybe we can do some stuff with all of us”
By the sound of it, Skrillex is fully motivated to finish up music for his next big release which should be his debut album and it’s only a matter of time before we’re hit by another surprise attack of new music. Check out the interview below and watch Skrillex going b2b with What So Not live in Sydney, Australia! Enjoy

A complete overhaul of one of 2013 most memorable tracks to end the year is precisely what up and coming New York native Mystress has conjured up on his latest release. The producer dared to dabble in uncharted territories by stripping Daft Punk’s sensational “Get Lucky” hit of its funk and disco vibes; opting to inject a healthy amount of bass, a dash of live guitar and a saxophone addition Dominic Lalli of Big Gigantic would be proud of. What Mystress has created is more than your everyday remix, but a reimagining that will have you fall in love with “Get Lucky” all over again. Stream the track below and grab a free download for the holidays. Enjoy

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!
