It's been a long time, I shouldn't have left you - but I've been putting in the work (and the miles) converting those house heathens in Mallorca and Ibiza. Parts of it have got a little messy:

The moral of the story is - DON'T GO DRINKING WITH RONNIE HEREL!! I promise to do a video blog next time I'm out there - to show you the real Ibiza through my eyes!

Anyway - seems like not much has happened since I left you apart from the world has gone Daft Punk mad again. Call it the Kanye effect, dude samples Harder Better Faster Stronger for his track Stronger (first previewed on this blog a few months ago) and the internet goes Daft Punk crazy!

Check the AMAZING Daft Hands - pitch perfect and all on one take - this must have taken HOURS!!

Shouts to the Megatron Don and Benji B for putting me up on that one.

If you're a bit of a sample trainspotter - this vid is for you. Showing the original record Daft Punk sampled for HBFS and then how Kanye flipped that for stronger. Pretty interesting:

and finally, the Carleton Singing Knights put in a pretty decent acapella rendition of the Daft Punk original:

I've always been a fan of Daft Punk and recommend them to all. If you like Stronger, go check out 'Discovery' - their second album. Very big. The only question at the moment is has Kanye done the french duo justice with Stronger? Or is the original better?
