Daft Punk…Random Access Memories



What is EDM? It is Electronic Dance Music. This French duo were masters of this art form back in the 90’s. They were ahead of their time and definitely got people out on the dance floor, shaking it! These two guys were simply pioneers in this techno realm. But now in 2013, they started from scratch. Its like they got into a time machine and zipped back into the 1970’s and hung out on the Disco and Funky clubs and took some heavy duty notes and then zoomed into the future and left notes everywhere for the robots of the future. So now these robots decided to visit those 70’s moments on their own with their newly designed time machine and absorb even more of this music and then travel back to the future and this is the music that you hear on this album, their interpretation of the sounds.

Basically, what I am saying here is this is futuristic disco-funk. You following me? Lost yet? There’s a track with an awesome re-imagining of this German guru’s, Giorgio Moroder, vocals explaining the styles of the tunes you’re hearing with a clearer understanding of what is referred to as….the ‘click’ which is the sound produced by a metronome (a sort of morse code type of backbeat). He was the originator. It’s like a little history lesson. Like he was interviewed by these robots and sharing his memories (Randomly Accessed) !Anyway, this track sets a nice mood with a Kraftwerk, Autobahn type of groove. The main track, which you are about to hear, is called “Get Lucky.” It was the biggest single this year. I’m not usually all about the mainstream but its really addictive in a Kool And The Gang sort of way! Guilty pleaseure, I guess. I could keep babbling but I won’t. This is number 7 and this is….Get Lucky! Way to go French Robots!!!
