A long time ago i worked at a radio station called Groove Radio. In 1997 Daft Punk stopped by and visited one of our djs, Jeff K. He interviewed them for a few minutes and then let them mix for a bit. Jeff just put it up on the internetz.
That is so rad, Mike. Thank you for sharing! Just starting it up.
EDIT: That is hilarious that their first gig in LA was the promote the movie The Saint. Also, this mix is a blast!
That was an awesome interview! thanks so much for this gem
short n sweet
we were so in love with those guys. Groove Radio played the shit out of Homework.
I remember Groove Radio. :pulse
I remember it's predecessor Mars-FM!
Aphex Twin in heavy rotation mid day... good times!
^i worked at Mars too. Best first paying job a boy could hope for in radio.
I am watching the saint right now. Heard da funk in the movie for a few seconds.
I have to leave, though, so I'll finish the movie later.
This isn't Facebook, GS.
^ Post #1,000!
Jesus, this board is unbearably stupid when the hive picks a new thing/person to hate.
Kanye West announced Daft Punk is on "three or four" songs on his new album.
Made out to RAM last night
That is really cool!
That was pretty sweet
I think my favorites are the 30s, 50s, and 80s
Who knew they liked James Blake? Really great interview with Daft Punk boys...
Yenigun: You said this song is something that conjures up a great deal of emotion in you. I'm curious, what is it about James Blake's music that stirs up these feelings inside?
Bangalter: It's pretty much inexplicable. Probably because it's the magic of the music. But I think James Blake is an example of a new songwriter — a new artist, a new musician, a new producer — that manages to express beautiful things with his voice and with modern technology, with synthesizers, drum machines and electronic instruments. And that's, for us, the perfect example of how we love to interact with electronic music instruments. Our record does not have a lot of electronic music instruments. There are a few tracks that have more of it, you know, but it's true that we're living in a time where we're not feeling really touched by electronic music that fails to carry those kind of emotions. But it's always good to listen to a song that is made with electronic instruments and feel something deep inside. So that's why we really like him.
So have any decent remixes came out of RAM yet?
Daft Punk's 10 minute remix of "Get Lucky" is out on Spotify now, as I'm sure elsewhere too.
Aaaand it just sounds like they just edited the song to last 10 minutes. Big whoop.
