Chilly Gonzales, formerly just Gonzales, is an artist whose music you are probably familiar with, but you don’t even know it. His song, “Never Stop,” is that catchy, snappy, poppy little piano tune used for the famous Apple iPad commercials. Or maybe you’ll recognize it as the song Comedy Central used to promote the new season of South Park earlier this year. Either way, you’ve probably heard the song and now you know who it is by: Chilly Gonzales.

Introduction aside, let’s get to business. Earlier this year, Chilly Gonzales put out the mixtape “Pianist Envy” that was a piano driven symphony of sorts. It included tracks by Beyonce, 50 Cent, Busta Rhymes, but most importantly, Daft Punk. Chilly laid some serious piano work over the Daft Punk track “Rollin’ and Scratchin'” along with a nice monologue by and fron Rocky Balboa. The monologue is genuinely inspiring and combined with the punching frenzy of ivory keys by Gonzales with the ominous electro sounds of Daft Punk, this is one of the best remixes I’ve heard. Ever.

Now, if the song alone isn’t rad enough for you, Jonathan Barré went ahead and produced quite the music video for the remix. Check out the video below and be prepared to be inspired – in a cheesy, sports montage kind of way. This song and video combination will definitely give you the sudden urge to do something.

Pick up the “Pianst Envy” mixtape here or just download the Daft Punk remix below.

Be Rad. Enjoy.

Seriously though, I know you want to go accomplish something right now, so get all Rocky Balboa with it and get to it! That’s how winnin’ is done.
