    Random Access Memories - The Drumless Edition

      Following the release of the critically acclaimed ‘Random Access Memories 10th Anniversary Edition’ earlier this year, Daft Punk unveils a new iteration of their GRAMMY-award winning Album of the Year. This version strips away all drum and percussive elements from the album, giving listeners the ability to dive deeper into the layers of instrumentation on each track.

      STAFF COMMENTS

      Barry says: It's Daft Punk's MASSIVE 'Random Access Memories' but without the drums, which I thought was at least 70% of their whole thing. Imagine my joy then when this actually ends up being a totally worthwhile, refocused look at one of the most meticulously crafted sounds of the past few decades.

          Alive 2007 - 2022 Reissue

            Daft Punk's “Alive 2007” set, which won 2 Grammy Awards in 2009 (Best Electronic Album and Best Electronic Single categories) is now released on vinyl for the first time (a double vinyl with triple gatefold sleeve).

            Recorded at Paris Bercy on 14th June 2007, Daft Punk's first homecoming concert for 10 years, "Alive 2007", captures the otherworldly live experience that the revolutionary robot-clad duo began at Coachella, USA in 2006. Opening with a "Robot Rock" teaser, before crashing into the track itself, the set works its way through all those DP anthems you love, including "Technologic", "Around The World", "Burnin'", "One More Time", "Da Funk", "Too Long" and "Human After All" - they even do a version of "Music Sounds Better With You"!.

              Human After All - 2022 Reissue

                On its 2005 release, "Human After All" was Daft Punk's first new studio album in four years, and their third album proper to date following up to 2001's "Discovery". Thomas Bangalter and Guy Manuel De Homem Christo recorded the ten tracks in just six weeks in their home studio in Paris in late 2004. Initially confusing the critics, who expected another pop album in the vein of "Discovery", "Human After All" instead delivered a rough and ready collection of extended dancefloor tracks with an emphasis on the "Punk" that informed the whole mid noughties wave of electro releases.

                The music is diverse and fresh whilst retaining their trademark Daft Punk sound (vocoder vocals, keyboards playing 70s guitar riffs etc), this time with a more spontaneous and direct quality to the recording. A mix of guitars and machines, "Human After All" takes us from the hardcore P-Funkin' tech-thump of "Brainwasher" and "Television Rules The Nation" to the pumping "Technologic" and "Steam Machine". The highligh however comes with the moments of calm amidst all the stormy electronics, the heartbreaking "Make Love" and "Emotion".

                French Connections : From Discotheque To Daft Punk - The Birth Of French Touch

                  Revised reissue of the acclaimed first-ever book-length investigation into French Touch.

                  "Updated version features previously unpublished interviews with Daft Punk, Laurent Garnier, Cerrone, Jean Jacques Perrey, Motorbass, Chris Le Friant (aka Bob Sinclar), Air, Etienne de Crecy, La Funk Mob, Cassius, The Micronauts, Stardust, Benjamin Diamond, Modjo, DJ GilbR, i-Cube, DJ Cam and many more...

                  During the second half of the 1990s, Paris experienced a dance music revolution thanks to groundbreaking artists like Daft Punk, Air, Super Discount, Motorbass, Cassius, Dimitri from Paris, Bob Sinclar and many, many more. It was a scene that became known as French Touch and was heralded throughout the world as the epitome of dance music cool, forever placing Paris on the dance culture map.

                  Journalist and author Martin James was there right from the start, documenting the scene from its inspirations to its earliest moments and onto its global breakthrough. In the process, he inadvertently provided the French Touch moniker that became adopted throughout the world.

                  Drawing on a dazzling array of exclusive interviews with the biggest names in French electronic music history, French Connections explores France’s significant contribution to dance music culture that paved the way for the French Touch explosion."

                          Erol Alkan Reworks

                            Way back when (approx 12 years ago), in those glory days of dingy basements and gaffa taped trainers, a whole new genreration of dancers were taking a journey of musical discovery at the the invitation of one Erol Alkan and his banging clubnight Trash. Electroclash, nu-disco, post-punk, punk-funk, nu rave, techno, there was a fair bit of techno, and indie cuts all rubbed shoulders, pogoed and made out in the middle of the dancefloor, getting totally fucked up as Erol threw them into the blender. This series sees the Phantasy man showcase his ear for a tune and hand for a killer rework with retrospective series of his best reinterpretations.
                            On the A-side, Erol rips apart the abrasive electro snarl of Daft Punk's "Brainwasher" and stitches it back together with a series of rib rattling breakbeats, gloomy keys and tremulous bass. Hard hitting, head-fucking electro tackle which predated the current breaks revival by a decade. Flip it for an Erol rework of Chilly Gonzales' "Never Stop". This dancefloor mauler works from a standard electro set up of kick+snare+hats before dropping into bleepy keys, pitched down vocal flips and a rampant electrodisco bassline. 'Ave it!

                            Random Access Memories

                              After more hype and fanfare than I can remember, Daft Punk finally deliver "Random Access Memories". On the previous trilogy of records they've changed the music world and heralded new eras and scenes. From the jacking filter house of 1997's "Homework", an album which set the blueprint for the whole French touch scene, to the pop majesty of 2001's "Discovery", a sampledelic journey through the kaleidescope of 70s disco and funk, to 2005's "Human After All", the rough and abrasive record that in hindsight heralded the new wave of French electronic producers. They are rightly regarded as the leading electronic musicians of their time and not only have they recorded a hype worthy record, they've delivered a classic.

                              Drawing inspiration of the sounds of the 70s and 80s, "Random Access Memories" serves up bouncing disco (Worldwide summer smash "Get Lucky" and "Lose Yourself To Dance"), prog jazz ("Giorgio by Moroder" and "Touch") and West Coast AOR ("Instant Crush", "Beyond" and "Fragments of Time"). The influences are similar to 2001's "Discovery", but rather than samples, the album instead features an all star roster of collaborators from all over the musical world recorded live in studio sessions.

                              Those expecting an album of easy dancefloor hits will be disappointed, Daft Punk have never simply retrodden uninspired paths and have instead turned out an expansive and exhaustive journey through an era before house music, where sentiment and nostalgia is preferred over beats. But don't fear, the dancefloor won't be neglected entirely, album closer "Contact" is probably a hint of what they might have in store for us on the soon-come remix disc!

                              Patrick says: The massive and eagerly awaited new album from Daft Punk, does not disappoint. This is their fourth album and first in over eight years. Working on a theme of 70s disco, influenced by movie soundtracks, the album is full of catchy summer sounding hits.

                              Discovery - 2021 Repress

                                "Discovery" was originally released in 2001, five years after those Daft Punks blew us all away with "Homework" and the world was a very different place. "Homework" had been the shot of adrenaline that club culture needed, prompting the golden age of filter house, with a legion of imitators following their lead. But the French duo hadn't spent the interim resting on their laurels, instead they'd dug deep into their record collections, exploring the productions of Thomas' father (Daniel Vangarde, who hit the charts with Ottowan's "D.I.S.C.O.") and honing their songwriting skills. They'd also spent a fair bit of time in the workshop making two very snazzy robot costumes which have become their uniform ever since. And when they were good and ready, they unleashed "Discovery" (or Disco Very) on the world. Opening with the massive hands in the air "One More Time", the album soon heads into a sampledelic melting pot of 70s disco grooves, reinterpreting the likes of Edwin Birdsong, Cerrone, Sister Sledge, George Duke, Tavares and Barry Manilow!!! This time around though, they'd taken a step back from the dancefloor, instead creating a pop gem that'd work in a club, on the radio, in an armchair or  anywhere really, that even contained proper songs. Perfect in its conception and execution this was the album that turned them from house music's golden boys to global megastars, and rightly so.
