Tron Legacy - Daft Punk Soundtrack

We all heard about the rumor of Daft Punk being involved in the new reboot Tron's film soundtrack.
As a reminder, Tron is a 1982 movie that used a lot of computer graphics and it's one of the thing that made it quite popular.Yeah, pre-CGI-era.
Here's a scene of the famous Light Cycles :

Anyway a sequel is on the road and will hit us on December this year.Check the trailer :

But the real deal here is of course the confirmed news (1) that Daft Punk will do the soundtrack. In fact they already give us a little hint at what it might look like at last year Comic-Con :

A fan reworked has been made too :

I think a darker tone will perfectly suit the Daft Punk compositions and put them at their best.That must be what they think too, if not why expressing the wish to do a live tour of it ?(2)
So we will cover any news from now on about the whole project.Following Alive 2007 'Best Electronic Album' could be 'Best Electronic Soundtrack Album And Tour'!

30 Minutes of Randomness

First in a series, this is a 30' mix of random tracks as if some-rich-black producers came to me and said "play your best stuff right now" (yeah...whatever).Of Course it's hardly doable but i think constraints make the whole thing exciting as it pushes you to be shorter, fresher and maybe better.
No tracklist at the moment, the idea is to discover and to be surprised.I can write it down here later though.
I plan to do this, like once a month or more.First one is called "blue" and you can get it as usuals via Megaupload :

Anarkhan - 30 Minutes (Blue)


P.S : I must say that this little gem is still awesomely hypnotic.

As a reminder of what we listened and discovered this last year in electronic/rock music, here is a bunch of cover arts from albums that made their way into the top.Obviously it's totally subjective and useless (as music and graphics are both criteria here) but it does look good to see them compiled like this.

Dixon - Temporary Secretary (Innervisions)

Chromeo - Dj Kicks (Studio !K7)Au Revoir Simone - Still Night, Still Light (Moshi Moshi Records)

Retrospective : End Of Decade Mix

Here we go for 2010 : a fully edited 25-tracks new year's eve mix for post-celebrating the decade.Including some of the best abstract-hip-hop/downtempo tracks that i love from those past ten years towards the first 45'mn part.Followed up by some new disco sounds,mixed with actual techno/house and ending with fat-ass elecro rock.So basically you can lean on your most comfortable couch enjoying Peace Orchestra, then stand up and start moving your feets on Lifelike to finally drink on the dance floor completely naked shouting 'White Unicorn' lyrics all over the place...Maybe you won't but there is room for everybody in this.
So Enjoy!
