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 !!
