The latest music and more with Note Noted
If you’re already tired from hearing Get Lucky a thousands time over on the radio then maybe this will revive some soulfunkness to your long weekend. Nicolas Jaar’s Darkside project, here renamed Daftside, takes all that aspiration and sucks out every drop of it from the original source. This album, mellow, strange and really just a series of clips uploaded to Soundcloud, remixes RAM in full, deconstructing it to resemble a thin, hollowed-out version of its original self. It’s an internet-redux model of Daft Punk’s work, a scratchy counterpart that sees virtue in the kind of ultra-low production values and consumption models that RAM veers away from.
