Chicago house legend Paul Johnson is in an intensive care unit (ICU) after becoming infected with Covid-19.
Daft Punk released their debut album, ‘Homework’, 20 years ago this year, and to mark the occasion Boiler Room have planned a tribute show which is set to take place at Chicago’s Smart Bar on Saturday 28th January.
Paul Johnson and Oli Furness have teamed up for a new collaborative EP, 'Tribute', set to drop in mid April on Manchester based label, Music Is Love. Fans of the imprint should check out their massive label takeover on 27th March at UK party institution, Sankeys featuring Leon Vynehall, Roy Davis Jr and label head himself, Oli Furness (pictured). Best bit of all? It's completely, 100% free!
If Live Nation, SFX and Beatport owner Robert Sillerman is hoping to monopolize the world of EDM, then he may just be copying Daft Punk, who've already monopolized the answer to the question, “Who was your influence in getting into electronic music?” Today's fresh-faced stars might consider the robotic dance music duo as the godfathers of EDM, but Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo were once excited teenagers themselves.
