This Blog Needs More Punk

Daft Punk, mind.

But all of you have heard back and forth the originals (or at least the hits), so im not posting any of them.
Im posting 2 remixes. Both non-official, but damn good.

First one is a remix of 2001's sampling/sampled big hit, Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger (HBFS for short), made by very unknown russian bloke called BuzZTech.

I found this one while lurking around Youtube yesterday and ran into this. Just by hearing the 1st minute i liked it a lot, so i decided to get it.
With a beggining that kinda sounds like a crappy remix done on VirtualDJ, this one gets better and better. A high pitched synth begins, and then the party starts. With a sound that kinda looks like it was Crookers who did it, the "brrrr" synth sound is one of my favourites, so i like this remix a lot and it deserves to be posted here.

The second one is one of the most ambient sounding DP remixes i have ever heard. And its not a track that you'd expect that could sound ambient.
Made by TDC member, rising producer and good friend Dark DJ,

this is a remix of opening track on DP's debut album, called Daftendirekt.
Daftendirekt remixes are already hard to find on their own, but to find such a remix of it is like finding a needle on a haystack.
Its a simple remix, with a lot of bass and using chopped up beats from the original, makes this one a nice chill song:

And because its Valentine's Day, i think i should give you something for the lovers that are reding this. (heck, Jordan made a special logo and everything, so why not?)

Daft Punk's love song: Something About Us.

Happy Valentine's Day (or Singles Awareness Day),

I've gotta say the first track gave me chills (meaning I liked it verry verry much). But rather than sounding like the crookers I would say it had a tektonik vibe :p with those cut of beats. Second one was good as well, but I need some pounding beats to really like a song when first listening to it, it'll grow, no worries. And about something about us, I've gotta say, it's one of those songs both me and my girl like lot, but still the other two can't compare :p happy vd, and you rock alex

Heh, thanks. The HBFS remix does have a bit of a tektonik sound into it, but i think it would need to be more pumping to actually be tektonik.

I think that's Dark's finest work yet! Wow! Heh. I never thought that cartoon of him would become so widespread. I just did it for fun :P

The HBFS remix is second only to the Breakers Break mix.
