A couple of weeks ago, I vented out on Facebook about the state of DJing (this might be applicable anywhere but I cater this specifically to my country, Indonesia). My piece got pretty descent response so I figured I should put it here in my blog too. Without further ado, here it is.
The 8th episode of Daft Punk’s The Collaborator series features American song writer Paul Williams. In this episode Paul Williams talks about the importance of being anonymous and … well, he was kinda all over the place to be honest.

I’ve been out of town in the past few days, therefore I’m a bit behind on this. Anyhow, here’s the 7th episodes of Daft Punk’s documentary of The Collaborators Series. This time around they have DJ Falcon to talk about the art of sampling and a bit history of the French Sound. There’s also short clips of Daft Punk back in the days when they were human. I can’t wait for May 20th.
The sixth episode of Random Access Memories | The Collaborator features pianist Chilly Gonzales. In this episode Gonzales talks about how he was brought in to the project to create a bridge on a track that has key switches in the middle. He also talks about he importance of harmony and how badly under used it is in pop music. This episode is another excellent behind the scene look to this highly anticipated album.
