Paris: The City of Lights

PREVIEW: VISIT WERW’S MySpace

The music of Paris has a history that goes back way further than American civilization all together. It’s a difficult thing to look back and do a history of Paris music.  To pick a “Best Of Paris” would be a challenge as well. But City Sounds has found a way to bring to the listeners a taste of “the city of lights,” so don’t fret.

In the mid-90s, Daft Punk put Paris in the spotlight as a center for house music. And while I’m not a professional when it comes to house music, I know what music can be danced to and Paris has plenty of that.  Other “innovators” in the French dance scene include Cassius and Etienne De Crecy, each having their own distinct sound.

It’s been a solid 15 years, at least, and the music of Paris hasn’t stopped.  Daft Punk is still going, but artists like Justice and Phoenix keep our feet moving while taking their genres to new heights and gaining new audiences.  We’ll also see what else is brewing in Paris along the way.

Listen to City Sounds on WERW Monday night from 11pm-1am for the sounds of Paris, France.

Mix Fix: Daft Punk and Marlena Shaw Remixes by tjwell01

New remixes of Daft Punk and Marlena Shaw own the day.

PREVIEW THE DJ: Kid Dub’s MySpace

REMIX#1: Daft Punk’s “Around the World” (Kid Dub Remix)

It seems twisted to think about life before Daft Punk, but now after their TRON song leaked,  then surfaced rumors (yet false) about a scheduled Coachella performance and now this remix, it’s fabulous having these beautiful french techno geeks back in pop culture. Daft Punk are remixed like crazy, but it’s harder to sort through the garbage, and then sometimes you find a gem like this. It’s secret is its minimal adjustments and just the right amount of new jazzy flavor. This is a masterpiece remix by Kid Dub.

Editor’s Pick #259: Audiosurf by elizabethvogt

PREVIEW: WATCH Daft Punk’s “Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger” being played on Audiosurf & DEMO Audiosurf

Everyone has played Guitar Hero at least once in their lifetime. Sure, it’s a heaping ball of fun the first few times but once you start replaying Muse‘s “Knights of Cydonia” because it’s the only track you can stand to listen to, the flame can burn out pretty quickly. Presumably, the one wish of the most avid players is a more personalized track listing to strum along to. Continue reading



Editor’s Pick #234: The Possibility of Daft Punk Playing Electric Daisy Carnival by elizabethvogt

Daft Punk

PREVIEW: SIGN The petition to bring Daft Punk to EDC 2010

I know I know, I’m sure after reading this title the first thing that came to mind was “Oh yeah sure…” but read on and let it all marinate for a second…

Electric Daisy Carnival is a huge electronic dance music festival held at the USC stadium in L.A. every summer. Last year, EDC featured some of the  biggest names in the electronic dance music genre such as Thievery Corporation, David Guetta and Boys Noize. According to the lovely World Wide Web, there is a possibility of Daft Punk playing EDC this year. Although Daft Punk has not performed live since the 2008 Grammys, the duo did state on their website that they will be playing a world tour in either 2010 or 2011. Could EDC be one of the stops on that tour? I think it is a great possibility.

If you are as psyched about this as I am, click the link above and sign the petition to bring Daft Punk to EDC 2010. It may be a ploy to sell more EDC tickets and I may be a complete idiot for believing Daft Punk would actually play a music festival but I signed the petition regardless. If nothing else it will get Daft Punk‘s attention and let them know the world is ready for the crazy, helmet-wearing team to start performing live again.
