RAM was the first vinyl I got (as a birthday present) when I was trying to start a vinyl collection like 8 years ago. Then my turntable broke and I never got another one and I sold all the vinyl I had, RAM included

You're quite good at turning me on.



I have Homework, Discovery, Alive 2007, RAM and Tron on vinyl but I called around today and nobody has Human After All in stock

Oh wow I totally forgot about Human After All. I guess I found it pretty unremarkable compared to what I was listening to at the time (I was probably catching up on a lot of D&B). In the same way that Homework only did it for me with the radio singles, it was fine. Technologic gave us Touch It by Busta Rhymes, which is a big guilty pleasure for me.

Shoutout to the TRON Legacy soundtrack though. Right place, right time for the band and they didn't waste that opportunity. The 303 version of the the main theme that played over the credits is epic as gently caress. Also easily the best IMAX 3D experience I've ever had, in no small part due to that soundtrack.

I saw it in IMAX 3D at midnight the night it came out and it was pure bliss. The soundtrack contributed a whole lot to that wonderful experience.

Also I just finished re-listening to RAM, and I gotta say, if they had to break up, Contact is one hell of a last song to go out on Every time I listen to it, it just floors me.

Haha, same exactly. Seated in the theatre's sweet spot, too. My legs were still shaking for like ten minutes after we left the theatre, it was such a sensory overload.

Great pinball table, too.

In Rodd we Bust





Really cannot possibly begin to guess how many icy mornings I spent waiting for the school bus blasting Daft Punk in my headphones. It was early enough that the moon was still out and you could see your breath and I just didn't care because the fancy french boys were just moving my body in a way nothing else did. Just absolute legends and I'm really hard pressed think of anyone besides, like, Georgio himself who has had a bigger influence on the influencers of today.

My college buds and I would always trip on New Year's Day, and one year "Daft Punk syncs up to the Rose Bowl" was said.

On acid, Daft Punk DEFINITELY synced up to the Rose Bowl.

That's my Daft Punk story.

Also, despite my (probably) terrible taste in music, here are a couple of Daft Punk remixes I've enjoyed.

Both are from when trap edm was becoming a thing, and the snaps and what's were hot.

Like another poster above I was more into the breakbeat and darker sounds of the time but I listened to discovery a fair bit. Also love the tron soundtrack. I kinda think it’s time, electronic acts rarely stay together for as long as they did and if they do they just seem to tour playing their greatest hits

Montmartre -> Portland

RIP 💔

I got into Daft Punk in a big way in 2001. I went down to Miami for some U2 concerts over spring break and ended up going to some parties for Winter Music Conference. They had just released Discovery a few weeks prior and it was the biggest thing, all that next year or so it was almost impossible to go to a club or rave without hearing One More Time or Harder Better.

So glad I got a chance to see them both at Coachella and again in Seattle on the Alive tour. Those were two shows I'll never forget.

Not much to say. As a stupid idiot I got into them in like 2008 which... RIP to any chance of seeing them live. Discovery quickly became one of my most spun albums upon... discovery along with Homework as I would get high as gently caress and grind Flysis/AirRivals. My late brother and I had standing plans to do whatever it took to get to their next set of shows (everyone did, lol)

The plan is to listen to the studio albums one more time in order of preference (fwiw, worst to best, Human After All - Random Access Memories - Homework - Discovery) before finishing with Alive '07 and putting the albums away for a good long while.

Still not over the loss of Daft Punk

They were the gateway drug that got me into several artists, among them Justice, Danger, SebastiAn, Kavinsky, Boys Noize, The Glitch Mob, etc.
