Daft Punkis a definition of a legend. If you never knew Thomas Bangalter and Guy Manuel before , and then i tell you that these guys are musical genius dressed up as robot aliens who plays electronic music, youll be thinking im quoting a passage from Hitchiker Guide to Galaxy or something.
This year, the punks come out with a new and highly anticipated album : Random Access Memories. Their last release was Tron legacy soundtrack back in 2010 which spawned Derezzed. I just grabbed this album yesterday and after whole day listening to it, here come my humble review.
I blame Daft Punk for my interest in electronic music. Imagine you are high schoolers itching to look cool and spent your after school times absorbing musicality through MTV. Hundreds of 90’s boysband videos later then, BAM, out of this world tunes suddenly hit your ears accompanied by anime music videos. Sounds so different, sounds so strange as if it was a received transmission from outer space. Couple of days later you realized what hit you was One More Time by french robotic duo of Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel.My ears wasnt same again since that.
Started with Daft Punk, then it goes to Chemical Brothers, Basement Jaxx, The Prodigy, Fatboy Slim until the new ones such as Deadmau5, Skrillex and David Guetta. Since i cannot play any musical instruments, back in my school times im dying to take DJ course in order to play music (and attract hot girls). But it would cost me my arm and leg to take the course, i was still broke furthermore. My dream to be the coolest guy in school nicknamed DJ Kiki was buried in the deep along with potential hot girlfriends.
God bless the internet for giving me access to VirtualDJand plethora of its tutorial on Youtube, i have new hobby now playing with these electro tracks. Check out my mix of eargasmic dirty electro tracks below .
Not bad huh for first try ? what ? it sucks ? whatever man, boot up your own VirtualDJ and show me what you got. Since my old DJ obsession come back to life, now i can wait for the hot girls to swarm around (hell yeah).
Stay tunes here for more mix straight from my office Thinkpad! Why you ask ? because Macbook is too mainstream (and i couldnt afford it).
