It is safe to say that the French duo consisting of, Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo and Thomas Bangalter formally known as Daft Punk Will go down in music history as the duo that pushed the boundaries of house and electronic music. Creating their own lane by drawing inspiration from monumental bands such as The Beach Boys and The Rolling Stones.
Aside from just their music one has to tip their hat to the sheer creativity of the band when it comes to their elaborate stage displays and futuristic music videos. The band had made little noise in the mainstream after the ground breaking success of their Alive tour in 2006-2007, which assisted in fueling the EDM boom in North America until now!
Their latest album titled Random Access Memories boosts thirteen tracks exuding the bands signature psychedelic funk meets electro house sound. With their lead single “Get Lucky” featuring Pharell Williams. In this new digital age where music stardom is one Youtube upload away it is quite impressive the amount of excitement the shy frenchmen have corralled for their latest offering. This is a testament to the impact of their earlier works– as of now the group has no plans of touring and are said to want all focus to go towards listening to the album, “we don’t see touring as an accessory to an album”. Listen to their lead single “Get Lucky” featuring Pharell below.
It would seem as though Drake has quickly gotten over his slight riff with his former protege The Weeknd and has moved on to another Toronto up and comer PartyNextDoor. There is little known about this new artist except that a few weeks back Drake tweeted the link to his single “Make A Mil” produced by 40.
Following up the instant online success of that single PartyNextDoor has released “Was Good/Curious” with a sound that teeters the line between Drake’s reflective, catchy raps and The Weeknd’s faded RnB sound. This latest offering is self produced and does not disappoint .
From what has been made public it would seem that PartyNextDoor is the newest artist on the official OVO label through Warner Brother Records. The two are yet to officially come out and confirm anything publically. I personally like what I have heard so far and am looking forward to hearing a fully project from this young artist. Stream both “Make a Mil” and “Was Good/Curious” below and let me know how you feel.
