Daft Funk

Of all the reviewers discussing the new Daft Punk samples collection (not released by DP), Pitchfork was the kindest. "If Discovered: A Collection of Daft Funk Samples proves anything, it isn't that Daft Punk are surreptitious thieves - it's that they're transformative reinterpreters, and in more than a few cases, flat-out miracle workers."

Agreed. But one of our least favorite tracks (Robot Rock) pales in comparison to Breakwater's Release the Beast (below) in terms of general party starting merit. Enjoy the original, a special Flight of the Conchords treatment, and a nasty Face to Face chop up from Belfort, France last year.

Breakwater - Release The Beast
Flight of the Conchords - Fake Robot Rock
Daft Punk - Face to Face vs. Harder Better Faster Stronger (live in Belfort)
