What's up with Daft Punk?

Questionable Franz Ferdinand remixes aside, does anyone know what's up with these guys? I know Bangaltar has kept himself busy working on film soundtracks and producing anthemic house songs with collaborator DJ Falcon. Does anyone know if there is anything coming up on the horizon?

Yes, nasty case of moog finger. terrible shame.

I heard they'd thrown their synthesisers away and bought some garden furniture.

Daft Punk love is the thing about ILM i that baffles me most.

They're now sucking quietly, instead of the in-your-face-on-every-airwave suckage of a year or two ago.

I like it better now.

it amazes me how little of ilm is rabid psychotic daft punk fanism.

(a) patrick alavi of work it baby records releases records online and labels them daft punk. some are ok, none are legit.

(b) bangalter fucked up his ears hence the delay.

(c) DAFT PUNK WILL BE BACK, sometime.

Alba (Alba), Tuesday, 17 August 2004 22:44 (sixteen years ago) link

I'm sick of this 'hater' bullshit.

I think they make boring music, and I think I'm entitled to say so on this forum. Do I have to like every single band in every single genre that ever existed to not be a 'hater'?

I don't give a fuck if you don't like the music I like; I'm not going to say "OMG haters!" if you say Coil or the Fall suck on one of the threads dealing with those groups.

P.S. Bassmet Jaxx suck as well. *Especially* something like 'Red Alert'.

Sasha (sgh), Wednesday, 18 August 2004 03:23 (sixteen years ago) link

It's just the rules. You have to like Daft Punk. We say so.

it's in the faq that if you don't like daft punk you....eh.......I better not say.

Ronan (Ronan), Wednesday, 18 August 2004 06:17 (sixteen years ago) link

wow, you're right.

Can I hate on Daft Punk on ILX?

Here on ILX, only Lil Jon is more unassailable than Daft Punk and all haters who attempt to board will be repelled. A second offense will result in computer viruses sent to your IP address. Embrace the digital love or leave.

Gear! (Gear!), Wednesday, 18 August 2004 06:35 (sixteen years ago) link

I think we should add Basement Jaxx and late 90s timbaland.

djdee2005, Wednesday, 18 August 2004 06:38 (sixteen years ago) link

Other than the Daft Punk and the Basement Jaxx thing, it is kind of nice round here. Has ILX decided that the last DP album was actually any good in some kind of mass oversight?

i don't get it

pete b. (pete b.), Wednesday, 18 August 2004 07:46 (sixteen years ago) link

it's over-rated, I like it more than ever tho. Basement Jaxx are my favourite thing of all time.

In answer to Barima's question, no no figurines yet :(

the neurotic awakening of s (blueski), Wednesday, 18 August 2004 08:42 (sixteen years ago) link

daft punk >> basement jaxx > drugs, food, bumping uglies, etc

the proof is in comparing the singles tracks and essential mixes and ignoring album vs album matchups.

vahid (vahid), Wednesday, 18 August 2004 09:29 (sixteen years ago) link

no i think Basement Jaxx have better single tracks and essential mixes too

the neurotic awakening of s (blueski), Wednesday, 18 August 2004 09:31 (sixteen years ago) link

heh, well OK, not entirely - several tracks on Homework I might prefer to anything by Jaxx (Da Funk, Fresh, Burnin', Alive)...

the neurotic awakening of s (blueski), Wednesday, 18 August 2004 09:33 (sixteen years ago) link

really?? hm. i thought the daft punk EM was like the holy grail of french/chicago house. it's the one disc (two discs, actually!) that's consistenly been in my CD wallet since i got it (well over a year, i think). maybe it's a, uh, london thing or something.

xpost - hey exactly, don't forget "around the world" and "one more time"

vahid (vahid), Wednesday, 18 August 2004 09:34 (sixteen years ago) link

i dont think they are selling anything. i went to the site and found nothing. just more adverts lol.

so they just like designing and running adverts.

advertising for its own sake.

unless they are soon to start selling wooden boxes and crowbars.

StillAdvance, Friday, 8 July 2016 10:40 (four years ago) link

oops.

nope, they are selling clothes. and $80 towels. and mugs, hoodies, etc etc.

ILXorcist 2: The Heretic (Eric H.), Thursday, 12 January 2017 17:17 (four years ago) link

It's not at all related to their latest release, aesthetically and sonically, so yeah, I doubt it's a real thing...
+ why touring now, years after RAM and without any new release in sight ?

AlXTC from Paris, Friday, 13 January 2017 09:16 (four years ago) link

cuz they always tour once a decade and it's now a "7" year?

licorice oratorio (baaderonixx), Friday, 13 January 2017 09:26 (four years ago) link

And they always release something every four years and RAM was 2013!

Frederik B, Friday, 13 January 2017 09:33 (four years ago) link

Wtf! RAM was indeed released 2013! I had to doublecheck. Fuck you time.

dance cum rituals (Moka), Friday, 13 January 2017 09:38 (four years ago) link

What did they release in 2009?

Tuomas, Friday, 13 January 2017 09:42 (four years ago) link

Tron OST was released 2010

groovemaaan, Friday, 13 January 2017 09:46 (four years ago) link

i count the live album from 09.

Frederik B, Friday, 13 January 2017 09:55 (four years ago) link

So, a surprise release this year ?

AlXTC from Paris, Friday, 13 January 2017 10:01 (four years ago) link

Dropped on 7/07 !

AlXTC from Paris, Friday, 13 January 2017 10:04 (four years ago) link

i count the live album from 09.

What live album?

Tuomas, Friday, 13 January 2017 10:14 (four years ago) link

The live album, that they released.

Ned Raggett, Friday, 13 January 2017 14:45 (four years ago) link

they didn't release a live album in 09, or did they ?

AlXTC from Paris, Friday, 13 January 2017 14:53 (four years ago) link

Nah, turns out it's from 07. But turns out, they've released the livealbums Alive 1997 and Alive 2007, so...

Frederik B, Friday, 13 January 2017 15:08 (four years ago) link

have they toured RAM at all?

frogbs, Friday, 13 January 2017 15:08 (four years ago) link

no tour.
a tour with all the guests from RAM would be something ! (impossible)
still the momentum is quite gone, by now, 3y after the release of RAM.
that said, 2007 was 2y after HAA, so who knows...

AlXTC from Paris, Friday, 13 January 2017 15:14 (four years ago) link

a Daft tour is its own thing, builds its own momentum. They don't need to tour behind an album

licorice oratorio (baaderonixx), Friday, 13 January 2017 16:46 (four years ago) link

What did they release in 2009?

Didn't they plan for an album for 2009, but scrapped it because they didn't like the direction it was heading, and also got busy with the Tron soundtrack work? Or maybe I'm totally making things up in my head.

Anyways, Daft Punk is the type of group whose fan base totally likes to make things up and generate fake hype, so it's not surprising that there is an Alive 2017 teaser.

MarkoP, Friday, 13 January 2017 17:04 (four years ago) link

Yeah, a DP tour this year would be absolutely huge, even four years on from the last album and regardless of whether or not there's a new record

groovypanda, Friday, 13 January 2017 23:10 (four years ago) link

not very funny and mostly sad to read my obnoxious pro daft punk ranting of 12 years ago

daft punk are so awful now and represent so much awful culture now in my mind, it's hard to believe

sorry to be all "old man yells at clouds.jpg" but there you go

still, i think i will always have time for solo bangalter and crydamoure productions of the 90s

I guess around the time of RAM, I noticed that those guys have never used a female vocalist. Have I missed that they in fact did? Is it not unusual that scholarly fellows such as they have avoided doing so?

veronica moser, Friday, 7 February 2020 23:38 (one year ago) link

The only female vocals they've ever used are on 'Ouverture', from Daft Club, iirc. That's Élodie Bouchez, Thomas Bangalter's wife. And yes, it's very unusual.
