Sunday Morning Medicine is a feature from Dancing Astronaut dedicated to the mellower side of electronic music. We bring you our favorite therapeutic selections — old and new — in an attempt to alleviate the agonizing effects of a long weekend of partying.
This week’s edition of Sunday Morning Medicine features some truly inspiring productions, from Sasha’s incredible Invol2ver remix of Telefon Tel Aviv’s “You Are the Worst Thing in the World,” to Chilly Gonzales’ legendary soundtrack to Ivory Tower, “Knight Moves.” Rounding out the edition are innovative tracks from Ichisan, Breakbot, Aeroplane, and 16 Bit Lolitas.
In the sixth installment of Daft Punk‘s Collaborators video series, jack-of-all-trades musician Chilly Gonzales opens up about his contribution to Random Access Memories. Working with the robots, Chilly explains his functionality for his collaboration was to construct harmonies — something often overlooked that required precise scientific and mathematical thought. Sitting by his Piano, he explains the album’s harmonic landscape he was asked to create and musically dissects Daft Punk and their new album.
It’s official. Daft Punk will finally release their fourth studio album this spring. Until a few weeks ago, that was confidential information limited to Thomas, Guy, Sony/Columbia and the select handful musical masterminds that have participated in the production. Thomas and Guy’s first album since 2005′s Human After All is slated to feature legendary forces; award winners of all sorts, hall of fame members of all trades, and some of the most cultivated geniuses in all of entertainment.
Meet the five game changers that will shape Daft Punk’s forthcoming album this May.
