Daft Punk's Debut Remix Receives First-Ever Vinyl Reissue
Daft Punk's acid house-drenched debut remix is returning to vinyl for the first time in over two decades
Way back in 1994, the pioneering electronic duo stepped off the mothership with their inaugural discourse in cloud-level disco, "The New Wave." A year later they'd prove themselves as capable recalibrators, offering The Micronauts' 1995 single "Get Funky, Get Down" an already potent blend of blazing glitches and tactful discharges.
And while the latter hasn't exactly attained peak rarity levels (currently going for four dollars USD on Discogs) a forthcoming pressing of The Micronauts single and its various remixes will bring Daft Punk's debut rework back to vinyl for the first time since its mid-nineties release. The reissue arrives on August 18th with the original mixes, the robot remix and two more refreaqs from Stablo and Jamie Fry, as well as a newly unearthed cassette version from Nature.
Those still holding on for a return to the stage from the duo, should probably just go ahead and take a breath already. That's probably out of the cards at this point. But if you're looking for a sliver of non-Starboy Daft Punk funk, this here should hold you over until their next transmission.
