Daft Punk + Digitalism = Greatness

Here's the Digitalism remix of Daft Punks, Technologic. It seems quite apt to post this track as it features two artists who a receiving a fair bit of attention. Daft Punk, because hip-hop super star Kanye West sampled the infamous Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger, catapulting the duo into ubiquity, and German trio Digitalism, due to the fact that their most recent album, Idealism, was nothing short of momentous.

Being candid, as usual, I've never been overly keen on Technologic. I just thought it was a bit boring, reflecting the uniform approach and overall drabness of the album on which it featured. Digitalism, however, present us with a rather refreshing remix. Gone are the meandering bass line, guitar chugs and mind-numbing repetitiveness, instead we are treated to emotive synths, exhilarating breakdowns and dance friendly beats. I thought Germans were meant to make music more ridged and efficient than this.

Here's a beautifully understated remix of the Klaxons, Its Not Over Yet, courtesy of Lille based serial remixer, Brodinski. Playing in Manchester in late September, although he doesn't say where. Check his myspace for updates.
