Daft Punk may be showing no signs of returning to touring soon 12 years on from their infamous Pyramid shows, but maybe you can take comfort in the news that The Daft Punk Orchestra are to return to touring as of next month.
The 16-piece group will recreate a number of the French duo's best-loved hits as part of a newly-announced show at Morecambe Winter Gardens in Lancashire on Friday, December 6th.
Daft Punk’s 2013 album, 'Random Access Memories', has topped Discogs' 200 best-selling albums from the last decade.
Discogs' best records of the 2010s have been ranked by the releases that have been both purchased the most, and requested the most. The grand totals take into account vinyl, cassette, CD, and all other physical formats.
The video for Daft Punk's 2000 single 'One More Time' has been turned into a VR rave.
Having recently featured among the acts touted to potentially headline Glastonbury next year, Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo and Thomas Bangalter's track - which features on their seminal second album, 'Discovery' - has been giving the VR treatment via Australian developer Jake Donaldson of Interstella VR.
Last year, we reported that Stardust were to re-master their 1998 French house classic ‘Music Sounds Better With You’ for a 20th-anniversary reissue. The release date has now been confirmed, with the classic re-master set to land via Because Music on Friday 28th June.
The ‘Music Sounds Better With You’ 20th-anniversary reissue will be available as a 12" vinyl, as well as the track being made available on digital platforms for the first time.
French artist Airod is coming off a year that was nearly as high-octane as the techno he makes. It saw him release five fantastically fierce EPs on a range of labels, as well as lay down plenty of hard-hitting sets around Europe. 2019 started in much the same way: he was invited by notorious brutalist Perc to play a no-frills night of proper techno at Rennes’ 1988 Live Club. He played for three hours, much to the delight of a fan who had come all the way from Canada to see him play.
Yamaha is considering a new version of one of its most-coveted synths, the CS-80.
According to a text shared by Derek Cook, moderator for the forum yamahamusicians.com, the Japanese electronic music production company, which unveiled its MODX synth last autumn, is looking for public input on a "basic conceptual direction if we were to make a new CS-80."
Daft Punk have removed their smash hit 'Around the World' from their back catalogue after becoming flat earthers.
The duo reportedly made their much-anticipated live return at a secret show at last year’s Flat Earth Convention, which took place on 15th and 16th November 2018 in Denver, Colorado.
After doing their 'Homework' the pair allegedly made the 'Discovery' that the earth was flat at the beginning of last year.
Daft Punk will have a new installation based on their 2005 hit ‘Technologic’ in Paris on display from April to August this year.
As part of the Electro: From Kraftwerk to Daft Punk’ exhibition at Philharmonie de Paris, the iconic duo have assembled a display featuring guitars, animatronics, costumes and other objects inspired by the ‘Human After All’ track.
Eric Andre has announced that a character from The Eric Andre Show, Kraft Punk, will be getting his own show dedicated to political debate and EDM.
The character – a haunting, discount, cheese-loving prankster in a sort of Daft Punk helmet – will be at the heart of a new show, KRFT Punk’s Political Party, which debuts on adult swim on 8th March.
The show is described as a “political debate show set to EDM music,” and it will cover “conspiracy theories to race relations to Satan's influence on the electorate”.
Check out the trailer for the show below.
