Daft Punk are without a doubt one of the most buzzed about acts in electronic music, able to capture reader awards even in years when they don’t do anything! And with EDM as buzzy as it’s ever been, even hip-hop bible Vibe is getting in on the action with a photo history of the world’s most popular robot duo, covering the pair’s pre-robot past, as well as all their costumed incarnations, from Homework to TRON. Boy, aren’t their baby pictures just the cutest.
We’re guessing this might be the last (or maybe not) remix coming down the pike from Daft Punk‘s now six-month-old TRON Legacy soundtrack. Adam Freeland takes a whole bunch of parts from the entire soundtrack, and reassembles them with a seriously health serving of Roland TB-303 acid. This is a sound the whole film coulda used honestly.
We all know Hollywood likes to copy itself (and then copy the copies of itself) So in this post-TRON world we live in, if you’re a major ’90s electronic act and you’re not scoring a film, then there’s something sorely lacking. Next up is Basement Jaxx, who have done the score for the new British horror-sci-fi-comedy film, Attack The Block, about aliens who attack a coucil estate (ie- the projects) in South London.
The first tune from the Jaxx, “The End,” sounds a great deal like their other recent work, blending dubstep beats with some classic carnival-esq Jaxx noise, like whistles and bagpipes.

The remixes of Daft Punk‘s TRON: Legacy soundtrack are comng fast and furious now. Today’s selection comes courtesy of red-hot Aussie band of the moment Tame Impala. The track will only be available on the Australian version of the TRON: R3CONF1GUR3D remix CD, coming out on April 8, so we’re happy that the folks at Modular Records decided to share it for us non-Australians citizens of earth.
Despite some not so nice words from Busy P, the TRON: R3conf1gur3d remixes are coming fast and furious now. KCRW has the exclusive remix of “Fall” by M83 and Big Black Delta, hand-selected by the stations music director and TRON: Legacy music supervisor Jason Bentley. Here’s what Bentley said about the remix:
“M83’s remix of Daft Punk’s TRON: Legacy score is a brilliant interpretation of the scene where Kevin Flynn and his son Sam, along with Qorra, are hurtling toward what seems a certain demise in a runaway elevator shaft. It’s a pretty manic situation on screen, and Daft Punk’s music understandably has a panicked urgency.
One of the reasons I like this remix so much is that M83, and his collaborator Big Black Delta, are able to control the gathering …
