Daft Punk – Alive 2007 (live)

French duo Daft Punk, one of the all-time greats of electronic music, have released a stunning live album this year. This album is a must get for any dj or music lover. The album Alive 2007 was derived from Daft Punk’s live performance at their Bercy show. Technical explanation of the album recording, equipment used, etc here.

Most everyone loves daft punk. I find clubbers always request the daft punk classic tracks like “around the world.” With Kayne West using the “hard, better, faster, stronger” sample this year, the audience and demand for daft punk is wide open and bigger than ever. The thing I find about playing daft punk songs is that most of the best ones are quite old, so some people get a little bored. This album has solved this problem in style.

Some of my favourite mash-ups on the album are “Around The World / Harder Better Faster Stronger”, “Television Rules The Nation / Crescendolls” and “Touch It / Technologic”.

Basically this is daft punk at their very best. They’ve mashed up their big hits, added bits, taken some bits away, and come up with twelve stompers that will rock any decent club. There are crowd sounds on the recording, but that won’t stop you from playing this out. This is how live music should be done. Music lover or dj you will enjoy this album.
