The Star Wars hype is real, and it is upon us.
Developers can’t always stop piracy. But they can try to have fun with it, at least.
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 seriously, we're missing a little fiction to glorify the music's rise into one of the more influential electronic music movements…
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, if you know a bit about music, it's fascinating stuff. This bit is not music theory but very interesting too:
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…
Remember Daft Punk? The robots that pwned the music charts a few months ago with their more-poppy-than-usual new album? Thanks to Nicolas Jaar and Dave Harrington—collectively known as DARKSIDE—you can discover Random Access Memories all over again.
You love Jay-Z, you say? Bad news: his appearance fee is bonkers. Good news: you can still have a private audience with Hova with these wall decals from design studio Pixers, which put him and several other famous musicians right in your home.
Every quarter-aged hipster wants to be a DJ at one point or another. The only problem is that DJing is actually a really expensive hobby, if you do it right. (And by right, I mean legally.) It used to be that you needed turntables, a mixer, an audio interface, crates of records, a controller and at least one…
Daft Punk recently released this slick and stylish photo shoot set in a famous LA modernist house, though we here at Architizer think there’s more here than meets the eye. What other “Daft Punkitecture” is out there in the world waiting to be found?
After Halloween revelers desperately wanted to buy his impressively detailed Daft Punk helmet (Thomas Bangalter version) Mauricio Santoro realized he could probably make a few bucks from his creation. So he got a small production line going and is now selling the helmets on Etsy for $500 until they run out, or until…
Lasers, bubbles, edge-tracking, and Daft Punk are all pretty awesome in their own separate ways, but put together, they can put one one hell of a useless, random, but awesome show.
Surprise! The new Daft Punk Album, Random Access Memories, has leaked online one week before the official release. And if you'd rather get your music by legal means, you can stream the entire thing right here on iTunes.
Can you remember the last time you used a floppy disk? I really don't. I'm assuming it was some time in elementary school bringing a single Word document in a computer class or something. Maybe I'm making that up. Whatever, it doesn't matter. Floppy drives don't matter anymore. Unless they're being used to make music.
Daft Punk's next official album, Random Access Memories, drops in just over a couple of weeks which might as well be an eternity for die hard fans. But while I'm as excited as anyone for the duo's next outing, I have to say I'm even more excited by these unofficial Daft Punk Lego minifigs.
Fans of forward-looking music have at least two things to be excited about this spring: new albums from Boards of Canada (which is teasing fans with the rarest vinyl released this year) and Daft Punk, whose Random Access Memories is set for a May 20th release.
Daft Punk's newest song Get Lucky from their upcoming album Random Access Memories has come with so much buzz that the only thing that can rival its thousands of leaks and millions of rumors is the next iPhone. Some people stitched together catchy loops from the SNL commercial, other people prayed for Coachella, but…
Why is Ron Swanson so happy? Why can't he stop dancing? Oh you didin't hear: There's a new Daft Punk record on the way.
We just can't get enough of the amazing Google Doodle paying homage to synth inventor Robert Moog, but Brett Domino takes the things to the next level with his rendition of Daft Punk's "Aerodynamic."
How do you make an incredibly cool piece of music even cooler? Play it back on ol' fashioned tech, that's how. It certainly works for this version of Derezzed.
