  • What it do?
Take a look at Prodigy, and how they sample:

I thought this was pretty cool, especially considering it was made in 1994 before the ease of modern tech. I don't really have a problem with this sampling method as an artform (but I do believe proper credit is always due). It's like a beautiful mosaic created out of discarded wine bottles: it was delicious wine, but it can enjoy a new life with many extra elements. It doesn't matter to me if the glass is new or recycled.

I wasn't part of the original conversation, but discovering song elements are samples instead of original sounds doesn't affect my enjoyment of a track. If anything, I appreciate the creativity as I would for a DJ doing the unexpected. And I definitely prefer it to lazy sampling.

I was oblivious to this film prior to today. Anyone else know Riga (take 1)?

Found a soundtrack listing here. Bangalter's Take 5 track is right down the bottom. I get the impression that this is the only track that's specifically by Bangalter here. But the notes down the bottom of the Discogs page say "Compose & produced by SIG" (that's the film's director, Siegfried) and also "Thomas Bangalter beats & loops".

This week has been interesting, and two previously unreleased recordings surfaced:

A 3 hours DJ Set from 1995


A full professional video of a 2007 live show from Lollapalooza.


You can even hear Thomas Bangalter at the beginning, checking that everybody's ready 😃

Thanks for sharing this, Ben, I'm off to download that 2007 set before it's gone.

As much as I like to poke Daft Punk and their fans, this was still unequivocally one of the best live electronic music experiences ever. There are so many impressive things about this set it's hard to know where to begin sometimes.

Also, some of the camera work from that footage is just god awful.

Eh, true, but since that was the footage for the giant screens at the festival, can't really blame them...

Enjoying this! Can't help but think there is some daft punk missing from life these days. I loved random access memory which probably puts me in the minority on this forum. Hope there is a follow up one day, but where could they go with another album?

I certainly know they can manufacture one with the brand name they've built, but are they artistically capable of producing another album?

It's pretty well documented how reliant they've been on samples to drive their music. And now, with their most recent take in RAM, it took a multitude of accomplished guest artists to "realize" their vision. Seems like they struggle in originality.

Since the Lollapalooza show is of topic, I just want to add the buzz from that performance left such a mark within the concert-going scene here in Chicago (As I'm sure as it was wherever they played). To have a conversation with a fellow concert-goer where they weren't of discussion, was impossible. Just a year later at a sold out JUSTICE show a fan took it to the next level...


(notice the flip phone!  :)))


Also, after that Lollapalooza show, I went to a post-show Ed Banger party where James Murphy and the rest of LCD Soundsystem hung out. Thomas and Guy were lingering about too, but mostly in the back room.

Apologize. Small brag, and memory dump.

Might be this guy?!? It's from the same year.


In his disclaimer he notes he made the suite himself.

Here's me in my El-wire suit spinning Daft Punk, Deadmau5, and various Ed Banger tracks.

I've had this costume for a few months. I've worn it to conventions, concerts, and clubs. Not only is it fun to wear, but you can also conjure up your OWN mosh pit just by directing them. Just gather everyone together using hand signals and they will follow.

You can't really tell in the dark, but this is HARD. Beat-matching and mixing is tough when it's dark, you're seeing through a small hole, and you have thick gloves on. Just imagine trying to type on a computer while your fingers are individually-wrapped in duct tape.
You wanna know my biggest disappointment for the live sets 2019? You wanna know? I tell you what my biggest disappointment is: I AM FUCKING NOT THERE!

It looks like it. I know he started the concert behind me, but eventually made his way to the front side of the balcony inside the venue. If I remember, the Ed Banger crew was interacting with him from the opera box to the side of the stage and I even think it was documented in a DVD or a video promo that Ed Banger did.


Edit: Also, wasn't there a tribute band/group that dressed up and basically had the same pyramid setup? I wonder if he was a part of that.
