Stardust – Music Sounds Better With You

It’s better to bump hard and burn out.  Thomas Bangalter and Alan Braxe have gone on to wax funkadelic in other k-holes since, but even in all the Daftness and Braxe Traxing have they ever topped this shit?  Taken rhetorically or debatably, it is a question chopped into fine powder when this track plays.  And that’s the thing: this still plays without being played out.  In the headlong whoosh toward the New that is Dance Music, this is no small point to be made.  At least once a week I’m blown away by some new house or French touch or dubstep or minimal or _________ track and within a couple of months I’m usually over it.  Let me remind you that this song is ten years old, which in dance floor years is a century, and when neon blow fiends are doing the all night boogie woogie to this anthem it’s akin to someone unwrapping a Super Nintendo tomorrow and spilling their eggnog in ecstasy.  Here’s to keeping all hopped up on Stardust in 2009. 

 

Merry Christmas!

Don’t Be Daft

On Valentine’s Day someone posted a track called “Love” on the ol’ internets.  It was initially assumed to be a heart-shaped gift from Daft Punk’s Thomas Bangalter.  Turns out, it’s actually a track by Louis La Roche.  Either way, I’m hoping it makes it into a DJ Tanner set soon.  Hint Hint: Will Krause.
