Daft Punk – TRON: LEGACY R3C0NF1GUR3D Album Coming Soon + Win Tickets to Exclusive Listening Party, Miami 3/11


When the TRON: Legacy movie came out last year, we were beyond excited to be along for the ride, helping to launch the official soundtrack, created by the legendary, pioneering, larger-than-life electro duo Daft Punk. The soundtrack showed a new side of Daft Punk’s music: they gave us a powerful, all-encompassing film score, which was a big leap from their usual dancefloor-shaking tunes.

And now the news we all have been waiting for: the hotly anticipated remix album, TRON: LEGACY R3C0NF1GUR3D will be released by Walt Disney Records on April 5th, including interpretations of the Daft Punk score by artists including Glitch Mob, The Crystal Method, Paul Oakenfold, Moby, Boys Noize, Kaskade, Photek, Pretty Lights and more.

On Friday March 11, Giant Step will host a private event: an exclusive first listen to the TRON: LEGACY R3C0NF1GUR3D album at the Rooftop Pool at Soho Beach House, Miami FL.  There is no RSVP but if you’re feelin’ lucky, enter to win a pair of passes here.

GPWW 2/23/11: Nicolas Jaar Feature and dOP Mix

This GPWW features words and music from Nicolas Jaar, an electronic artist based in NY on a French-based label (Clown and Sunset), currently studying at Brown University in Rhode Island. His album was released on January 31st, called Space is Only Noise. While chatting with Gilles about his studies and music, Nicolas mentions that he’s happy to see artists like James Blake getting so much positive attention, because it represents this new, mellow electronic generation in a relatively accurate way. As Pitchfork said about Space Is Only Noise, “The textures and ingredients of Jaar’s music exist in the context of techno– rhythm and repetition are clearly important to him– but Space is not dance music. It’s too slow, sure, but it’s also too diffuse in its methods and results.”

Later in the show, Gilles brings a mix from dOP, going into their jazz box for Yusef Lateef, Horace Silver, Coltrane and more.
