reMixing Daft Punk seems to be back in fashion! I remember when you couldn’t move for reMixes, and then it all went quite for a while. In the past few weeks though, the electronic rumors inbox has been chock full of robotic reMixes! Not that we mind at all, as long as they are quality.
Like rad Disco act Hana Yori Kichou Na’s mix of ‘Musique’ here. Funky and filtered in the best way possible this is one reMix you just can’t stop moving to.
Disney have just released a reMix album of Daft Punk’s amazing Tron: Legacy soundtrack. One or two choice cuts aside it’s mostly god awful and RELLY uninspired. The choices of reMix artists are so out-of-touch, the album could have been mind-blowing if the right reMixers had been chosen. Instead some executive listed a few electronic acts he could think of (“the still kids like The Paul Oakenfolds and The Crystal Methods, right?”) and threw in some he read about on a website a couple of years ago most of whom phoned in their reMixes. Total missed opportunity.
