    I would think that, as an artist, a remix of your work would be a complement...At least when it's done by somebody else. If you have to remix it yourself, that's like saying, you may have fucked up the first time and you're trying to save face... Does my disappointment come off as harsh?
    Its like the Infinite Monkey Theorem, if you put X amount of monkeys in a room with a typewriter and ask them to give you Shakespeare 99% of them will fling their shit at you while the other 1% will masturbate in the corner.

    I wouldn't say it's harsh. Wrong, yes... but not harsh.

    Artists do it all the time. Sometimes it's to take a song of theirs and make it appropriate for a different context. For instance, look at Trentemoller. His tracks Moan and Always Something Better are amazing. But then, so are his remixes of the same tune that turn them in to big club numbers.

    This doesn't make it into a different context. It just extends it. If anything the original should just be called a radio or album edit.

    Agreed. I wasn't arguing that this remix accomplishes that. The comment I was responding to spoke towards there being an inherent problem with an artist remixing their own track. Which, clearly, goes beyond this.

    Again we are all confused by Daft Punk. Are electronic noises so negative for these guys!? The people want a remix that sounds different. I remember them saying they want to preserve the songs they wrote and let people think what they want instead of making music videos about it. O well hopefully the next one will be for the club

    I disagree. Trent Reznor has put out a shit load of remixes of Nine Inch Nails songs that he has done and I doubt it's because he felt he fucked up the first time.





    The Daft Punk remix is boring though
    Check out Sleeping is Giving in for great mixes and other cool stuff

    they must have been inspired by the 10 minute loop of the SNL ad that the internet made earlier this year.

    Shake blended whiskey, juice of lemon, and powdered sugar with ice and strain into a whiskey sour glass. Decorate with the half-slice of lemon, top with the cherry, and serve.

    Bit behind on the board. Yea here is Spins writeup on it... cr****

    Daft Punk have said they plan to release their own remixes of tracks from Essential album Random Access Memories, but they've also invited fans to rework the tracks themselves. Nicolas Jaar, who collaborates with Dave Harrington as Darkside, is an exceptional avant-dance producer in his own right 2011's Space Is Only Noise still sounds great and his Cat Power remix made SPIN's 40 Best Songs of 2012. More recently, Jaar remixed Brian Eno and Grizzly Bear for a Record Store Day single. In other words, Darkside are extremely well-qualified to rework tracks from Daft Punk's Random Access Memories. Great news: Under the name Daftside, Jaar and Harrington have reworked all 14 tracks from Random Access Memories. Their Random Access Memories Memories cheekily reimagines one of the year's biggest albums as a noisier, weirder, and slinkier experience. It's an album-length remix to remember, though it might be best enjoyed under late-night circumstances that could leave your memories a bit fuzzy

    Lolz, spell check says the article has a typo.....

    lol at "2011's Space Is Only Noise still sounds great"! Yes... shocking that an album that was great when it came out manages to survive the test of time for a WHOLE TWO YEARS!!!

    Produced by Japan-based S.H. Figuarts, these 6-inch action figures were created under the direct supervision of the French electronic duo, according to the figures' Amazon.com product descriptions.

    They are crafted with "meticulous attention to detail" with "seven sets of left/right interchangeable hand parts for recreation of dynamic posing."

    The $44.99 (each) figures of Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo are available for pre-order and go on sale Dec. 27 in the United States.

    Daft Punk releases condom line

    Ways to really help make yourself awkward.

    "Check it out..."
    "What is it?! Just put it in me already!"
    "It's a Daft Punk condom, told you I was pretty cool"

    430,000 units in the first two weeks in the US alone...

    Will be gold in the US in no time.. Wouldn't be surprised if it hits Platinum before too long... Already Platinum in the UK (which is only a 300,000 threshold vs the US's 1,000,000)

    So yeah... selling horribly.

    I think the condoms are actually pretty funny.

    That "Get Lucky" remix is mediocre as fuck tho.

    In the toy world Bandai is known for robots and has produced some of the finest Japanese robots ever. I'm sure thats why they chose them. McFarlane only does sports figs now that I know of.
