In the world where almost every gets the remix treatment, whether it be by some hot-shot DJ or by goats, Daft Punk have revealed that they will be remixing their own, newly released tracks from Random Access Memories. The first track to get remix? Why their first single, “Get Lucky.”
While being interviewed by BBC Radio 1’s Pete Tong, Thomas Bangalter, one-half of the electronic duos told the DJ that they would be remixing the tracks themselves.
“We’re working on some mixes ourselves,” Bangalter said. “So, yes, there will probably be Daft Punk mixes of Daft Punk. Usually, we never mix ourselves, that’s something we feel we’re interested in doing this time.”
When asked about when the first remix will arrive, Bangalter said that it would be making its way to fans at the end of June. “It’s one step at a time, so we don’t have plans to do a whole remix album at the moment,” the dance-music robots are quoted as saying. “Nowadays it’s really easy for people to take loops from the album and remix it themselves and we really encourage people to do that,” he told MixMag.
Until June then, I guess we can all agree that Random Access Memories will be on a constant repeat in the car.
