Daft Punk x Disney x Tron

What a classic and about time pairing, Daft Punk, Disney and Tron, three pop culture institutions that evoke such nostalgia, childhood imagination and glee in everyone that experiences them. I have a feeling that the score is going to sound like their b-side track from Daft Club, “Ouverture”, a 70s tinged track that sounds like they are paying homage to Wendy Carlos, the famous organist/synthist that provided noises for The Shining and the score for the original Tron.

Asian Dan Interview: Housse de Racket

Victor & Pierre of Housse de Racket were kind enough to answer a few questions of mine to shed some light on the epic pop rock that they create. Find out how they are connected to Air, Phoenix, Gonzales & Sebastien Tellier. Great guys and hope to see them on American soil sometime soon.

Asian Dan Interview: Housse de Racket

1. Who is Housse de Racket? How would you describe your music?

We’re two guys who grew up in suburb of Paris, city of lights. We met when were teenagers at music school. Victor was wearing a Pearl Jam tee shirt and Pierre loved it.

We play stadium music in very small rooms.

2. What are your influences, musical or otherwise?

We love black music especially Stevie Wonder, Prince and (of course) Michael Jackson… but we cannot sing like them so we play very loud with huge distorsion on the guitar and a double kick drum.

3. The French Music scene is at quite a peak now, where do you see it going and are you guys going along for the ride?

We started playing music when Daft Punk, Air or even Phoenix started to raise. We considered them as (hidden) older brothers… So, it has always been part of our vision of the french music.
Now, Justice, Yelle, The Teenagers, Soko prove that something still happens in France.

We sing in french so we’re different from these bands. The past few months we realize that it’s not a problem anymore… We recently signed with a big english booking agency (Primary Talent) and we plan to play worldwide !

Fake Blood x Glenjamn

Glenjamn captured Fake Blood’s magic with his Ninja Vid skills. Fake Blood is using 2 CDJ’s and Serato, quite an impressive DJ setup for one man. His little live edit of Tiga’s Mind Dimension is great which segues into his own edit of Soulwax’s version of Daft Punk’s Teachers. He cuts up the syllables in Teachers to “say” Fake Blood like he does in all his remixes/edits. So great. I can’t wait to hear more of Fake Blood in 2009, I can’t believe I just got into him these past few weeks. Better now then never.

DJ AM @ Hard Haunted Mansion 2008

Caesar Sebastian Photos

I was talking to Glenjamn the other day saying that every DJ at Hard Haunted Mansion 2008 should have dressed as Daft Punk, just have a gang of Robots like in Electroma bum rush the stage and confuse everyone. And to answer peoples questions I think DJ Am is mixing edits that he made himself with Serato, so he isn’t just playing the Alive 2007 CD. And to everyone that is hating on him for doing this, c’mon don’t we all want to be Daft Punk and how can he pass up an opportunity to dress up as Daft Punk and play for thousands of people.

Housse de Racket


Housse de Racket are a French pop rock duo in the vain of Phoenix meets the whole new Ivy Indie scene of Chester French (Harvard), Vampire Weekend (Columbia) & Hey Champ (Princeton). They are opening for a few Jamie Lidell dates in Europe. Gonzales remixed their single “Oh Yeah” turning it into a track that sounds like a soulful Daft Punk’s “Teachers”.
