Glitchwerks: And BT and Daft Punk are in the greater scheme of things?


It's not about them. It's not about you. It's not about anybody.

No one is bigger than the music. Stop chasing idols.

By the way, for those who think sampling is hard, here you go.

This is Four Tet using a Fisher Price turntable and a Michael Jackson album to produce a track in 10 minutes.

While the end result isn't exactly great, it shows just how quickly you can work with software to produce something.  Absolutely no high end equipment here either, literally a toy record player and an old laptop.

fonebone77: They actually play a lot of the instruments on a lot of their songs.  Also, sampling well is freaking hard and it takes a lot of talent to pull it off and not have it sound like crap.  They are making original music, they are just using different kinds of instruments.


No, it isn't hard at all.  Find sample, record, trim a bit at the beginning and end, loop.

Even when people were using the MPC it wasn't that hard to sample.  Now with Ableton people can produce a proper beat in 10 minutes or so.

Glitchwerks: Ishkur: These guys -- Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo and Thomas Bangalter -- are the producers who made the music.

Which basically involves sampling someone else's music, looping it, and filtering it.  Or in the case of "RAM," hiring other musicians to play for them.

I get that people like Daft Punk, but they are so amazingly overrated it's just stupid.

You say that like it's a bad thing.

I'll admit to being the 30 year old "old man" - I don't get it.  It's essentially two guys in Tron outfits playing Atari while their pre-recorded song plays in the background.  How is that any different than Milli Vanilli?

mediablitz: Charlie Freak: You mean Nile Rogers, Nathan East, Omar Hakim and Pharell should go on tour, right subby?

The Daft Punk dudes have an important job to do. Pushing fake buttons behind the band isn't as easy as it seems.


Exactly.
