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.
Dirtyphonics have created a massive insane drum and bass track melting in some good old trash metal for good measure. These french drum and bass masters have produced a revolutionary track with a traditional metal instrumentation with a very fitting drum and bass drum line. “Walk In The Fire” is one of the most hardcore and revolutionary drum and bass tracks to come in a long while. Even though melding metal with drum and bass is nothing new, Dirtyphonics bring it on a whole other level with this release!
Infected Mushroom’s new unholy concoction, Friends On Mushrooms Vol.1, has finally seen the light of day, and let us tell you, it’s massive. Composed of 4 tracks, the EP covers a wide array of genre’s from Reggea, to Electro House, to a weird mix between Glitch-Hop and Moombahcore, and it really wouldn’t be Infected Mushroom without some Psychedelic Trance. The overall sound is extremely similar to their album Army Of Mushrooms, which many may say is stale, but the Israeli duo manage to bring freshness into their tracks with ease and ability. This is specially noted on their collaboration with Hope 6, on their Reggea track (don’t be fooled by the Dubstep beat, it’s Reggea. They also collaborated with Astrix on the track Astrix on Mushrooms bringing back that Psychedelic Trance and mixing it with their new energetic style, a must for those hardcore Infected fans. Bellow you will find Previews of each of the songs, and you can get the EP on Beatport.
