Daft Punk: Random Access Memories

Can you really combine dance electronic style with invention jazz or prog rock? This French duo gave it a try and the result is fantastic.


Daft Punk: Random Access Memories
Formate: Audio CD
Released: 2013
Label: Columbia

We are not speaking about the comics-like Kiss hunted by journalists to unfold their real identities. Paradoxically, the focus is on Daft Punk who created a real marketing myth from their masks – robotic helmets. Moreover, they stick to their previous production on the new album and hide themselves under a bunch of supporting instruments, which make Random Access sound fresh a more creative. Samplers have been replaced by real instruments and traditional dance music has moved more towards synth-jazz or even art rock style. Their funky influence comes from deep rhetoric of the past, which is actually a very good idea for the Daft Punk. Do they search exactly the opposite ways to their own success? If the Indie Rock bands flirt with dance styles, what we see here is the opposite. Disco rhythms keep their physical core, space rock productions are covered by jazz improvisation and spoken word (Giorgio by Moroder), pulsing bass lines as well as melancholic beats are all present in what we can call a real postmodern commercial goulash. It is clear that Random Access Memories is the best album of the dance style so far. And there is no doubt it will surely be wonderful live, even without any extasy.
