Fatboy Slim Fools Crowd With Daft Punk Prank!

Fatboy Slim, you’ve done it again!

After performing 6 secret shows in Glasto, during one of the intimate yet epic performances, Fatboy Slim decided to take the show up a notch. Two impersonators wearing Daft Punk helmets appeared on stage pretending to cameo the set during Fatboy Slims’ remix of ‘Get Lucky‘. As you can imagine, the stunt had the whole crowd erupting with screams of sheer joy and excitement. It wasn’t long before the fans figured out the stunt as the two impersonators moved around the set as Fatboy’s backup dancers. Guess the audience didn’t ‘get lucky’ after all.

Anyway, here’s the prank for you to watch and enjoy.


Nile Rodgers and Daft Punk -Two Peas in a Pod

It seems that old dogs can be up to new tricks as the frontman of the American Disco and RnB band ‘Chic’ –  Nile Rodgers – teams up with old favourite daft punk to release a new album even though there hasn’t been one in the previous 20 years.

Get lucky was the first hit which Rodger believes has been so successful because of it’s unique sound and ‘it works because it’s weird.’ Interestingly enough, nothing else on the charts is like the funky disco colab feat. Pharrel Williams which reasons why it peaked at #10 on the charts so far, with more than 350,000 downloads to date, plus another 710,000 in England. It is also the fastest-selling album in the UK so far this year.

Rodgers worked on Punks album Random Acess Memories describing Give Life Back To Music and Lose Yourself to Dance as an ‘exclusive’ sound. Its been revealed another daft and Rodgers colab is in the works including more unfinished Chic songs he wants to be released “Daft Punk wants to do at least one of them with me, so that should be very cool,” he said. “Because they respect the music. They understand.”

Here’s hoping that this is the collab couple of the year in the making, bringing more funk and no junk.

Tiesto Bags Out Daft Punk’s New Album

Richest international DJ, Tiesto, recently revealed that he’s not impressed with Daft Punk’s latest album “Random Access Memory”.

The 44-year-old told the The Huffington Post in a one-on-one interview that the hype surrounding the duo’s album is ‘over-hyped’,It got so much attention because it’s so different and it’s an attitude album,” he told the outlet. “It’s cool to like Daft Punk.” As for lead single Get Lucky: “Even if you’re not into the song, as soon as you hear [it], you see all the cool people go, ‘Oh yeah, this is cool, that’s my song,’ and they don’t really even enjoy it. I’m destroying them now…Sorry Daft Punk.”

Tiesto was also unimpressed with their previous album, Tron, reinforcing his statement that Daft Punk is popular due to the hype, not the music itself, “The Tron soundtrack wasn’t that great and this is not great either, but because it’s Daft Punk and they’re supposed to be cool and they had the amazing pyramid at Coachella a couple of years ago and the helmets — they’re fucking cool. But the music doesn’t deliver on the hype so much.”

Yikes! That’s two strikes for Daft Punk considering …. also thwarted their latest album as ‘rubbish’ in his review (which you can check out here). Despite the negative reviews, Daft Punk’s first release of the album “Get Lucky” is still rating well in the charts. So whether if it’s talent or hype with their latest album, the duo are doing something right.

What do you think of Daft Punk’s latest album? Do you rave it or hate it? Let us know below!

Barack Obama Sings “Get Lucky”

It seems like everyone is singing their own cover of Daft Punk’s latest hit, “Get Lucky” and now the US President has followed suit.

Ok, not really. Some clever YouTuber has dubbed several Obama clips to the tune of the song–you gotta give the person credit for the effort though! The YouTuber named “baracksdubs” has also created other clever Obama covers of hit songs, particularly Carly Rae Jepson’s hit “Call Me Maybe” which has reached millions of hits on YouTube.
