    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
    It's funny how everything was roses when we held on to the guns.

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

    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"

    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.

    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.

    In the begining of their run with the Spawn stuff they made alot of cool figs. The Devil from the movie Legend was very well done as was The Maxx fig. The KISS line and Ozzy figs are cool too but as of late they only make Sports Picks. I know Bandai is mostly associated with Power Rangers but back in the 70's & early 80's was their golden age of robots & space toys which like I said was probably the reason they went with Bandai.

    Q&A: Nile Rodgers
    Nile Rodgers: 'My favourite book? Moby-Dick.' Photograph: Getty


    Nile Rodgers, 60, was born in New York when his mother was 14. As a teenager, he was a session guitarist and toured with the Sesame Street band. In the 1970s, he and Bernard Edwards formed Chic, whose many hits included the triple platinum-selling single Le Freak. The duo wrote hits for Diana Ross and Sister Sledge, and Rodgers produced albums such as Let's Dance for David Bowie. In 2010, he was diagnosed with prostate cancer, but is now cancer-free. He recently co-wrote and performed on Get Lucky, Daft Punk's global hit. Chic featuring Nile Rodgers are appearing at Magic Summer Live in Guildford this weekend.

    Moby-Dick.

    What would be your fancy dress costume of choice?
    An absurd 70s Super Fly pimp outfit.

    What is the worst thing anyone's said to you?
    "Take off that silly 70s Super Fly pimp outfit."

    Which words or phrases do you most overuse?

    If you could go back in time, where would you go?
    The first lunar landing.

    How often do you have sex?
    As often as most people, I'd imagine.
