thugli

Daft Punk – Get Lucky (Ft. Pharrell & Nile Rodgers)

After almost having a heart-attack at Coachella (twice), Daft Punk never showed. But they did hit us with a little surprise: the infamous duo’s teased almost all of Coachella by feauturing a teaser of their song before TNGHT and The Yeah, Yeah, Yeahs performance. As we ran over to TNGHT, we just caught the tail end of the video, but we knew something good would be coming in the near future. That it did, somehow the Frenchy’s song has been leaked (they don’t allow these types of things to happen, so this might not even be real)

Take a listen, featuring Nile Rogers on the Guitar, and Pharell on the vocals; this track can be loved by old and young. If you have yet to tune into the documentaries the duo has released on their website, make sure to give them a watch so you can fully appreciate this song. What do you think?

ƱZ – ŤɌ∆Ҏ ᶊῌῗ† √12/13

Trap’s best kept Secret, ƱZ, has released his famous ŤɌ∆Ҏ ᶊῌῗ† √12/13. If you don’t understand this complicated computerized writing, these means he has just released is 12th and 13th volume of his epic “ŤɌ∆Ҏ ᶊῌῗ†” releases. Normally we’d be the first blog to be on this, but unfortunately we were having some technical difficulties.

Who is ƱZ? Only few know, but do you?  Get on his Facebook and Twitter to find out all the upcoming tour dates and follow his SoundCloud for sneak peeks of what to come.

Mad Decent has finally released the epic journey by Brillz and Whiskey Pete! Make sure to give the song a full listen, as it features 4-5 distinct parts. Full Description below:

Acid Trippin is a monster tune that was made around the time of the Swoop/Bueller sessions and rides along that same early dance trap aesthetic . Brillz signature flutterymelody lines get torn apart by saw tooth trap stabs while Whiskey Pete lends a catchy hook perfect the club.

Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike – Wakanda (Harrison James Bootleg)

Kevin Serrano Photography

Harrison James, a young up an coming DJ/Producer from LA has just shared this track with us. He is currently breaking through all that nonsense out there in the trap game these days. Expect more tracks from him in the near future. Don’t forget the name, as he might soon be playing near you. Enjoy this trap remix to “Wakanda”. We like it it better than Dimitri Vegas and Like Mike’s, what do you think?
Free DL as always! Make sure to give him quick follow on his Soundcloud and help this newfound artist.

Daft Punk Random Access Memories Episode 1: Giorgio Moroder

So Daft Punk is finally back, and this is apparently there first of multiple episodes to come featuring legendary composers/songwriters and speaking on their behalf. Giorgio Moroder essentially breaks it down for the viewers at the end of the video: The reason Daft Punk has been gone for so long is due to the fact that Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo are so detail oriented that it takes them weeks just to find the sound they need some times. They even record with 3 different microphones (from the 60s, 70s, and today) even though none of us could tell the difference, apparently they can.

So what have they really been doing? IT HAS HAPPENED. They have finally bridged the gap, between real music and music made on computers. It’s still electronic, but it now has the human touch, because they used real instruments.

Bravo, Daft Punk, Bravo.

So far we’ve talked about digital audio workstations, basic components of a home studio, MIDI controllers, and even mobile apps and how they can fit into your creative process for making music. With Ultra Music Festival wrapping up this month, I figured it would be appropriate to talk about how some of the most technology-heavy music producers in the world utilize these technologies to create their sounds during a live performance.

Here are a few names you might recognize and which devices they use during their live shows:

Skrillex

Electro House, Dubstep

Skrillex, a former post-hardcore singer/songwriter, began creating digital productions and has been a major contributor to bringing electronic music back into the mainstream. Having been nominated for a total of eight Grammy awards and leaving with six, Skrillex is showing no visible signs of slowing down. Here’s what his live rig looks like:
