Daft Punk’s much hyped appearance in the VMA’s was a brief appearance of the french dance superstars, leaving many fans equally dazed as they were disappointed. After the Stephen Colbert publicity stunt, every one expected more than just an award presentation alongside Nile Rogers and Pharrell Williams to highly maligned “country” music star Taylor Swift. We can all admit that for this one time we all held our collective breaths waiting for Kanye West to interrupt, but I digress. Daft Punk have taken over the world with their single “Get Lucky” and fourth studio album Random Access Memories, so seeing them not get the VMA for the summer anthem was a huge disappointment to say the least. Was this teaser really worth breaking our hearts TWICE and crushing out dreams of seeing the robots play on live television. Again, this is typical Daft Punk. THIS is the way to create infamy and legendary status.

HOWEVER they did premiere their music video for “Lose Yourself To Dance”. Enjoy the TV spot on the link below the promo pic, soon enjoy it on youtube! This stunt further proves that Daft Punk always never fails at creating mystique and giving fans something to speculate over.

Get Lucky- Daft Punk

By: Forward Musiq

No, you aren’t dreaming. It’s official. The gods of electronic music, Daft Punk, have officially returned, with the launch of the lead single, Get Lucky. And they haven’t been funkier. Embracing the Disco influences to the fullest we’ve seen in any Electronic artist, the robotic French duo have finally broken a 8 year (not counting Tron: legacy Soundtrack) wait for new material. Enlisting the vocals of Pharrell and the contribution of Nile Rogers, legends both, Daft Punk has delivered successfully what is, without a doubt, the Summer tune of 2013, and probably the decade. A funky Disco-esque tune that combined with the vocals of Pharrell and the producing expertise of Daft Punk, has literally transcended what electronic music is. Going back to the roots of electronic music and using analog equipment  and real instruments to produce their music, Daft Punk has clearly demonstrated how music is supposed to be done. Artists, producers, Djs, take note boys and girls, this is how it’s done. Make way for the masters of Funk, 2013 is owned by Daft Punk.

Major Lazer – Free the Universe Review

By: ForwardMusiq

Let’s get something out the way, this album is HUGE. Major Lazer is Diplo’s favorite project and has really surpassed any other endeavor he has gone on in the past. This album, even though rittled with guest producers and having Jillionaire and Walshy as team mates is Diplo’s brainchild. The production in Free the Universe is definitely a lot more focused than in Guns Don’t Kill People… Lazer’s Do. With subtle hints splashed throughout all the production, each track feels like the musical philosophy it refers to, with that modern dance polish. Talking about musical philosophies, Diplo returns as a world music ambassador. Dancehall, reggae and many more island and South American dance music styles are well represented through Free the Universe. From “Get Free” with its reggae dub licks, to “Jah No Partial” which is a love letter to dubstep’s roots in reggae dub facilitated by Flux Pavilion’s contribution. The drum work in Free the Universe is as tight as ever. Very polished, clean and easy to get hooked on.

The collaboration’s in Free the Universe are maybe this album’s weak point. As ambitious as this album is, it’s dancehall approach is brought to glory by serious genre legends like Elephant Man, Beenie Man and Shaggy, but is brought down by out of place indie and mainstream stars like Tyga, Bruno Mars, Ezra Koeing and Amber Coffman. Each track tries to bring out the most in every voice, which in the end creates a very nice sounding cacophony, but a cacophony in the end. Free the Universe does not work well as an album, and sounds like a collection of best hits. In a nutshell, almost every song in this album would belong in a very different playlist in your iphone. Diplo’s ambition has never been truer, better produced, danceable and unorganized as in Free the Universe.
