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

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.

Daft Punk Spring 2013

By: Forward Musiq

The Gods of Dance music, Daft Punk, have returned at last, officially announcing that their fourth album will be released sometime in Spring of this year. Already in the process of finalizing the contract with Sony/Columbia for the album (leaving their past label EMI), the robotic French duo has been biggest topic as of yesterday in the EDM community. News of the official statement came from the mouth of no other than Guy-Manuel, allegedly telling some of his friends the news at Kavinsky’s party sometime around last week for his latest album release. 2012 was plagued by constant rumors of Daft Punk’s return, leading one to anticipate that 2013 was going to be the final date. With announcements of their collaborations with artists such as Paul Williams and Nile Rodgers, we have that limited idea of how the album will turn out, and we can safely say that if 2012 was ruled by EDM, 2013 will be dominated by Daft Punk. Regarding their Summer tour, the details remains quite illusive, with rumors often stating that there will and will not be a tour, we just say time will tell what new live performance Thomas and Guy-Holmes will bring into the scene.
