The nice guys behind WhoSampled have put together a great mixtape today containing the sample material behind some of Daft Punk’s greatest hits. Curious what the French duo used as a base for their hits such as ‘Robot Rock‘, ‘One More Time‘ and ‘Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger‘? Even more curious how these originals sound in a thirty minute mixtape? Check Daft Punk – The Samples below and enjoy!

Agreed, there’s no shortage of Boiler Room sets being shared on our information highway today. However, when a DJ-set with the energy, fun and freshness of Disclosure’s set below comes by, there’s also no reason not to share it again. Enough reason to talk a bit about Disclosure and again emphasize that you should definitely check out the energetic set they did at Boiler Room, innit?

Disclosure live Boiler Room

‘Two youths that are totally killing it right now’. This is how Boiler Room describes the London duo Disclosure, consisting of the brothers Guy and Howard Lawrence. The duo produces garage/bass music akin to Joy Orbison and Mosca and released their debut-single in 2010 on Moshi Moshi Records. Since this release things have been going very well and with their recent remix of Jesse Ware’s ‘Running’ the duo is indeed totally killing it right now!

The mix below was recorded at one of the renowned Boiler Room sessions on June 28 2012. Although the mixing is a bit jumpy from time to time, Disclosure’s choice of records is awesome. Definitely recommended!

However, as Fuse TV also suggests in the video below, there might be one key demographic that hasn’t jumped on the bandwagon yet. You can call them the late majority, the laggards or, well, your parents! It’s time to get them acquainted with streaming music too!

How to have that awkward, but necessary talk to your parents about Spotify, is presented in this funny video.
