Daft Punk Unboxes Random Access Memeories

I’m not really a fan of unboxing videos, but this made my pants all crunchy.  I hope we get to see more of Daft Punk’s secret lair in whatever videos are shot for their upcoming album because it looks like a lot of fun.  Definitely has a classic 70s sci fi feel to it.

All these teaser videos, releasing “Get Lucky” early, the postering campaign, everything they’ve done in anticipation of the album release has built such great anticipation for the thing! May 21 can’t come soon enough!!!

“Get Lucky” On iTunes!

It’s been an awful week so I was overjoyed when I saw that the radio edit of Daft Punk’s “Get Lucky” off their upcoming Random Access Memories is up on iTunes.  I’ve been rocking that shit all morning and even created this horrible tribute piece.

Thank you, robots!  This is exactly what I needed to close out the week!

Daft Punk and Pharrell Williams

No matter how many times I hear bits a pieces of “Get Lucky,” I still fucking love it. Such an amazing groove that just gets into your soul.  There’s something magical about it and listening to Pharrell talk about the collaboration makes it sound like a religious experience.  Love it!

Man, if there’s a special edition of this thing, they have my money!

Daft Punk and Nile Rodgers

You may not recognize the name, but you’ve heard his guitar grooving on tracks from Chic, Sister Sledge, Madonna, Diana Ross, Duran Duran, David Bowie, Adam Lambert, Sam Sparro, Joe Raposo, and now Daft Punk!  Disco is alive and well and I absolutely love that the robots are working with so many artists who built the foundation of dance music in the 70s.  This album is going to be so damn fun.

Desire for clear acrylic Strat, growing!

The Collaborators Behind Daft Punk’s “Random Access Memories”

Daft Punk’s newest album, “Random Access Memories,” drops May 21.  In anticipation of the release, The Creators Project interviewed two of the collaborators who helped the robots put it all together.

Giorgio Moroder is one of the early pioneers of electric dance music.  When the robots asked him to collaborate, he couldn’t resist.

Todd Edwards is a dance music producer.  He talks about working with the live instrumentation the robots wanted to use on their new record and why that’s unique in this genre.

Man, just the little clip of “Get Lucky” used in these short docs makes me want to shake my ass!  It’s gonna be an awesome May when this finally drops!
