Daft Punk Blows Away Grammy Awards
Did you watch the 56th Annual Grammy Awards last night on CBS? The show included an extremely rare television performance by DJ duo Daft Punk (F). They played "Get Lucky" with live vocals from Pharrell Williams and Stevie Wonder. But where was Daft Punk? Midway during the song they finally appeared as futuristic robots, with helmets preserving their noted secretiveness.
Their album "Random Access Memories" won awards for Album of the Year and Dance Album of the Year. "Get Lucky" won for Record of the Year. Remember that the Blog predicted this early last June here! The album was produced in a studio using 1970's & 80's era equipment in order to create the retro sound engrained within its songs that modern computers don't replicate. It very much deserves to be Album of the Year! It's a sound and feeling that is likely to be copied by future EDM artists that are moving Dance music to yet another level!
