Aerodynamic Symphonic Cover

Aerodynamic Symphonic Cover

Symphoniacs play orchestral arrangements of popular and classical music with a modern flair. Here, they perform an excellent cover version of Daft Punk’s Aerodynamic, on violin, cello, piano, and electronics. We also rather enjoyed their rendition of Coldplay’s A Sky Full of Stars.

Daft Punk on Clarinets

A very different arrangement of Daft Punk’s hit Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger, performed by the women of Four Play, a four-part clarinet ensemble, who we think could also do a mean cover of Cantina Band from Star Wars.

Original TRON w/ Daft Punk

Original TRON w/ Daft Punk

YouTuber Planet Rocky 2099 took the original light bike sequence from TRON, and overlaid it with Daft Punk’s track The Game Has Changed from TRON: Legacy. As if by some magic, the classic scene lines up perfectly with the music that was created 28 years later.

We’re not sure from whence this album came from, but we’re 99.999% certain it wasn’t performed by Daft Punk themselves. Still, this mysteriously posted compilation of holiday tunes done in the style of the robots is pretty damned entertaining.

Counter656 used their talents to create a stop-motion music video for Van Ness Wu, who comes to life in action figure form, taking down an army of papparazi action figures hellbent on capturing his image. The music isn’t exactly our cup of tea but the animation is top notch.

Orchestra Plays Daft Punk

Orchestra Plays Daft Punk

A fantastic live version of Daft Punk’s hit Harder Better Stronger performed by the 15 members of Germany’s Rundfunk-Tanzorchester Ehrenfeld. We love the dimensionality and depth the strings and brass add to the already funky dance track.

Daft Punk are true maestros, but so much of what they’ve achieved wouldn’t have been possible if it weren’t for the funk, soul, and disco songs which provided sampling material for so many of their tunes. Tuneid compares some original tracks with Daft Punk’s remixes.

The Weeknd: I Feel It Coming

Love Props’ replica of Guy-Manuel’s first generation Daft Punk helmet is packed with electronics to take advantage of its potential as a wearable light show. The LEDs can react to sound or movement, and there’s a USB port and an SD card slot to swap choreographies.

Daft Punk Talkbox Cover

Musician Lorenz Rhode turns in a spot-on cover version of the talkbox modulated vocals from Daft Punk’s 2001 classic Harder Better Faster Stronger. It would be cool to see him recording the other parts of the track too.

Give Life Back to Music: Animated

Give Life Back to Music: Animated

Daft Punk’s Give Life Back to Music is a great track, but its official music video leaves a little to be desired. Thankfully, Bitter Strike! Cartoons created their own fan-made music video that lives up to Daft Punk’s musical vision.

We’re not quite sure why Daft Punk waited so long after the release of their latest album to put out new merch including shirts, a belt buckle and an awesome poster. They’re definitely Doin’ It Right with those retro style ads though.
