Listen to Nicolas Jaar Remix Daft Punk's 'Random Access Memories'
- Words: Jesse Sussman
Young New York auteur Nicolas Jaar and his Darkside collaborator Dave Harrington have spontaneously unveiled an album featuring a remix of every track from Daft Punk's brand-new Random Access Memories LP. The duo has opted to release its ambitious Random Access Memories Memories under the apt handle Daftside, using the name to reinterpret Daft Punk's landmark album by scaling back the classically minded tunes in favor of more subdued energy, heaps of static and crackling texture, and sparse grooves. All of Jaar's and Harrington's work can be heard below.
