“Randy” is a yummy culmination of everything and everyone you’ve grown to love about French electronic music: Daft Punk, Boyz Noize, Fred Falke, Sebstien Tellier, SebastiAn, Breakbot, Jamaica, Kavinsky, etc.. Justice sit among the modern kings of electronic music dominated by their fellow French kin.
“Randy” pops and oozes with French flavor; it urges you to move along with its rockin’ fall anthemic beats, keys, and strings. Justice are shining bright with this new single and you’ll soon been listening to it non-stop. You may even get a little obsessed. The video is rad – almost hypnotic. Every sound rings with optimism: it’s moving. “Randy” is your guiding light as you fall through the calm and chaos of your autumn days.
Be Rad. Enjoy.

And if watching Madeon’s magical fingers work away at his touchpad wasn’t enough for your wanting eyes, youtube user levmyshkin has made a video mashup featuring music video clips from the majority of the songs used by Madeon.

Ed Banger Records and, famed smooth operator, Breakbot just released the music video for the seemingly timeless funk tune “Fantasy (feat. Ruckazoid).” Needless to say, it’s perfect and more that appropriate for the approaching season of summer. Breakbot sure knows how to pump out the tunes.
Breakbot’s Fantasy EP is due out on June 20.

Justice just dropped this Earth shattering video for their come back single, “Civilization.” The genesical imagery used by the director Edouard Salier is amazingly vivid. Have faith my friends – there are still bands out there that make good music and videos.
“Civilization” is out on June 6, 2011.

You won’t be pressed to find a critic or blogger that hasn’t said “Derezzed” is the most “Daft Punk” thing on the new Tron:OST – but that’s because it is true. It is probably the only song on the album that, if removed from the context of the soundtrack, still holds up as a good DP song. While the entire soundtrack is wonderfully composed and produced, it’s still just a movie score: worthy of a couple full listens but truly meant to be accompanied by the film itself. Even though its place is amongst the complete Tron:OST, let’s bask in the idea that “Derezzed” is actually a new Daft Punk single, cause that’s what everyone seems to be doing.
I must say, I was not expecting this video. Not at all. I thought their appearance in the movie and production of the OST would have been enough publicity for the reclusive robots – but I was wrong. And boy am I glad. This video gives me hope. There has been so much speculation as to what to expect from them: What type of publicity will they be doing? Are they going to tour? Is there going to be a new album? Oh the questions! Oh the possibilities! The guys of Daft Punk seem to be embracing their, now, even bigger, fame and are really putting themselves out there. I can only hope for more.
But seriously, this video is awesome. And Daft Punk’s actual appearance in the video is so bad ass! I really love the retro vibe of this video like the old wire graphics and dusty arcade machines. Also, I couldn’t help but think of Michael Jackson’s video for “Smooth Criminal” in those opening shots – its feels so familiar. Anyways, the video ends up being a short story that parallels to that of the actual concept of Tron – users and programs. Daft Punk may be an exceptional case for this paradigm, but, as robots, running on programs, are they really even users?
Nerdy thoughts aside, and to further provide some evidence that “Derezzed” is being treated like a true Daft Punk single, let’s listen to some remixes. First off, fellow Frenchies, We Are Crisis Children give the song an even more glitchy vibe with a few rad chants. Cassettes Won’t Listen gives the track a more ambient feel with a slight touch of dub. Then we have Breakdown, who effortlessly turns the song into a dance floor killer – lots of build ups and heavy bass. And finally, my favorite of the remixes thus far, is by NTEIBINT. While he certainly adds his own touch, this remix doesn’t stray too far from the original – it simply becomes radder. Enjoy the remixes, go out and buy the Tron: Legacy Soundtrack, and go see TRON!
