13-03-27 random access memories daft punkYou can’t even imagine my look of surprise upon exiting the Ultra Festival grounds following Day 1 this past weekend to solemn, darkly-dressed greeters wordlessly dispersing masks with the Daft Punk album art. With a giant projection of the same animation as used during the SNL advert played on repeat against the building facing the festival exit, the French Punk duo continued to tease its biggest fans as they trudged home throughout the rest of the weekend; Nile Rodgers, their producer, was spotted backstage day two, and the Daft-men themselves were even spotted watching on as the Swedish House Mafia waved their epic goodbye. Would they surprise everyone with a short performance?! Or a new song, from their first album in seven years?!

Well, no, as it turned out. But the guys did officially announce that “Random Access Memories” would be released May 21, posting 13 unnamed tracks for $11.99 to pre-order on iTunes! In the meantime, enjoy some of my favorite Daft Punk classics, as mixed by Panic City, HLM, Xristo, and TheFatRat, and GET EXCITED !!

★ Gotye – Somebody That I Used To Know (Paolo Ortelli vs. Degree Remix)

I have loved this song from the second it first hit my ears. iTunes is showing me I have eleven remixes of “Somebody That I Used to Know” in addition to its beautiful original, by all sorts of top-shelf DJs, from dBerrie‘s most famous, house edit, to a kooky cut by dj Bibio, to a womptastic KDrew mix. But this version, a mash of remixing by Paolo Ortelli and Degree, is simply the best. Haunting and low at first, the remix focuses on the catchy, deep-cutting lyrics to build anticipation — until about the 2’45”-mark, when the emotion bursts free and glorious, cascading harmonies…

Original and runner-up remixes after the jump!

Hi, my name is scubaSteve, and I’ve been a longtime mashup addict. I know they’re cheesy, but dammit if I can’t stop nodding my head to one cooked just right. It’s like some kind of uber-song, irresistable. Well anyway, enjoy my nonsense, and moreover, enjoy these tunes…

★ DubMash Productions – Don’t Stop Jagger (Maroon 5 ft. Christina Aguilera vs. Foster the People)
♬ No Pets Allowed – Papercuts and Night Shades (Cobra Starship vs. Gym Class Heroes vs. Ken Loi)

♬ Foster the People – Don’t Stop (TheFatRat Remix)

Can’t get enough of Foster the People. If I’m smart lucky, I’ll get to tune into their Central Park Summerstage performance this year, which promises to be even better than last year’s with all the new tunes they’ve been dropping since. Leave it to another crazy-good German dj, this time the mysterious FatRat, to spin “Don’t Stop” into this unstoppable, whistle-along remix.

The most dangerous thing about TheFatRat seems to be the fact, that it’s been active but undiagnosed for several years already. The quarantine report states that it started spreading somewhere in the club scene in Germany. First traces can be found in Munich and Berlin, where it was hiding behind DJs and Projects. Compilations like “Ministry Of Sound – The Annual”, iTunes, Beatport, even the billboard charts were suffering from it, without knowing about it’s existence. It is considered highly dangerous and infectious, leading to the conclusion that it is of great importance to warn the public about TheFatRat.

He’s quickly becoming a favorite in this hard-syncer’s library. Check out this sweet rendition of Avicii:
