The Present Has No Rhythm

And thus, the Daft Hug was born...
Hey guys, it's Nite again. As I'm sure many of you are aware of, Daft Punk has recently sweeped the Grammy's, winning all 5 grammy's they were nominated for, including Album of the Year. As a way of celebrating their recent success, I'm going to put up some Daft Punk and DP related music on this post! Let's get started, shall we?

First off, we have an amazing remix of Daft Punk's Revolution 909 by Roger Sanchez! Definitely a great house track to groove to when you need something to dance to.

Next, we have the ever lovely Veridis Quo from Discovery. Perhaps the most Moroder-esque track the french duo has had until RAM, this tune is undoubtedly one of my favorites from their second album. It's absolutely fantastic.

Thirdly, from their HAA album, we have The Brainwasher. It's heavy, repetitive, and fun as all hell to dance to. Honestly, it's my personal favorite tune off of this album. 

The next two tracks are not Daft Punk tracks, but rather come from Thomas and Guy-Man's time at Roule and Crydamoure respectively. The first comes from Bangalter himself, whereas the second is from Le Knight Club, a French House group composed of Guy-Manuel and Eric Chedville (both of which owned the Cryda label, just as Bangalter owned the Roule label). Anywho, these are perhaps some of the best French House tracks to date, even if these tracks are over Ten years old. Such a shame these labels don't exist anymore...

Lastly, Daft Punk's live performance of Get Lucky with Stevie Wonder. While it's not studio quality, it's definitely decent, considering it was ripped from the TV. Enjoy it while it's hot!  

Here's to another year of Daft Punk! Hopefully we won't have to wait another 8 years to see a new album or a new Live album from them. Daft Love, Nite
