The Real Daft Punk Samples

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.

Eclectic Method: Jimi Remix

Eclectic Method: Jimi Remix

YouTube has some pretty strict rules about including copyrighted music in videos, but if the snippets are short enough, you can get away with it. To see what he could get away with, remix artist Eclectic Method decided to make a whole new song entirely out of tiny bits of Jimi Hendrix tracks.

Smoothed-out Criminal

Smoothed-out Criminal

YouTube channel EveryOtherBeat has a single gimmick – removing every other beat from popular songs. Sometimes it works, and other times it’s downright strange. But in the case of Michael Jackson’s Smooth Criminal, the result is simply magical.

Eclectic Method: Shaun of the Dead

Eclectic Method: Shaun of the Dead

(PG-13: Language) Keep together, stay sharp, and follow me. The undead and Halloween go together like peanut butter and chocolate. So to celebrate the holiday, Eclectic Method did up a little mix of sounds from the Edgar Wright zombie comedy classic.

Bang Your Head (It’s a Celebration)

Bang Your Head (It’s a Celebration)

Musical mashup master Bill McLintock’s track will drive you mad. It’s another impossible combination that somehow just works, as Kool & The Gang’s Celebration meets Quiet Riot’s Metal Health. Crank it up to 11 as funk and metal make beautiful music together.

Apollo 11 Remix

Apollo 11 Remix

On July 16, 1969 at 8:32 am Eastern Time, Apollo 11 lifted off and headed towards the moon.

Eclectic Method: Spider-Verse Remix

Eclectic Method: Spider-Verse Remix

We loved just about every moment of Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, including the opening scene where Miles is singing along with Post Malone and Swae Lee’s Sunflower. Eclectic Method sliced and diced up the track and footage from the animated flick to create a whole new EDM track.

Musician and madman Andy Rehfeldt removed the disco backing track from the classic 1978 Village People anthem, and replaced it with the angry shredding of electric guitar. Talk about a disco inferno; this version burns down the house.

My Superstitious Brain

My Superstitious Brain

We love a good musical mashup, and this is one of the best we’ve heard in a while. 888sentz posted this track by Bass211, which perfectly combines Stevie Wonder’s Superstition, Cypress Hill’s Insane in the Brain, Run-DMC’s My adidas, and a dash of Beastie Boys’ an open letter to new york.

Detroit Rock Lobster

Detroit Rock Lobster

Everybody’s rockin! Get up! Everybody’s gonna move their feet! Remix artist DJ Cummerbund brings us another unlikely pairing: KISS and The B-52s, two groups at their peak of popularity around the same time, but each with something very different to bring to the table.

Chilly Wonka

Chilly Wonka

We are the music makers… and we are the dreamers of dreams. Remix artist Melodysheep presents a colorful new take on Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory with a chill hip-hop track made with footage and sounds from the 1971 classic. We love the transitions he added.

Eclectic Method: Infinity War Remix

Boulevard of ’80s Dreams

Boulevard of ’80s Dreams

Johan Olsson likes to take popular songs and imagine what they would have sounded like had they been made in a different decade. Here, he transform’s Green Day’s 2004 pop-punk anthem into something that could have appeared on the Flashdance soundtrack.

Radiohead White Noise

Radiohead White Noise

Since this video by Green Grass dates back to 2011, it doesn’t include Radiohead’s most recent albums, but it’s still fascinating to hear the soothing sounds you get when you play every song the band recorded between Pablo Honey and Supercollider/The Butcher simultaneously.

Back to the Carpet

Back to the Carpet

Arnold wants the kids to listen, but no matter how much he drills it into their little heads, they’re not bringing their toys back to the carpet. A hilarious and catchy track made using sounds from Kindergarten Cop by remix master Swedemason.

Oh, My!

Oh, My!

Remixer and composer Melodysheep used sound samples and footage from The Wizard of Oz to create a wonderful and ethereal new track perfectly suits the dreamy feel of the film. We love the way he incorporated the Tin Man’s clank into the rhythm.

Miami Sound Machine meets Trapt meets Yes meats Incubus meets Meatloaf in DJ Cummerbund’s latest masterpiece of unlikely musical fusion. Seriously, how does the hell does he envision these combinations?

Cheers… or Not?

For anyone who grew up watching TV in the ’80s and ’90s, the Cheers theme song will immediately bring back fond memories. But let this version play, and things get a whole lot less cheerful. We don’t care if everybody knows our name. There’s no way we’re going to this bar.
