Now answer the questions according to the numbers:
What was the first song you ever heard by 6? That must be Da Funk, it was hyped big on MTV when it came out I think. I loved the video, but loved the music even more. Not your everyday lame house music.
What is your favorite album of 2? I think that must be Encore. It's a tough choice because all his albums are very good, but Encore contains what I feel are his best tracks: Yellow Brick Road, Mosh and Mockingbird.
How many times have you seen 4 live? Twice I think, or at least twice. I can remember them at the Lowlands festival in the Alpha tent, and in 013 in Tilburg. I must've seen em more often, because they used to be my favorite band, but these two I can remember quite well.
What is your favorite song by 7? Very tough. If I have to pick a single track, I'd say On.
What is a good memory you have involving the music of 10? The first time I heard Drei. I already loved their music, but Drei simply blew me away. In "their music genre" (widest definition would be Industrial), I've never since experienced anything remotely like that.
Is there a song of 3 that makes you sad? No. The overall feel of the music of Boards of Canada to me is inspiring, dreamy and nostalgic.
What is your favorite lyric that 2 has sung? I think that will be When I'm gone though really this is tough as I like more the music and flow of Eminem's music than the actual rap.
How did you get into 3? I used to write reviews on garageband.com, for which in return you got gift certificates for hmv.com. Someone dropped the name Boards of Canada so I decided to order In a Beautiful Place Out in the Country for the certificate I got. That changed my whole view on "IDM".
What was the first song you heard by 1? Lightning Crashes, though at that time I didn't realize it was by Live. Only later, as I Alone and Selling The Drama became popular and I bought the album did I realize the track I'd loved for a while was by Live.
What is your favorite song by 4? Morning Lemon, b-side of the Block Rockin' Beats single.
How many time have you seen 9 live? Twice. Once in Utrecht in Vredenburg, the other concert was at the Lowlands festival.
What is a good memory you have involving 2? Nothing specific
Is there a song of 8 that makes you sad? No, not really.
What is your favorite album of 5? That must be Parachutes. It's the album with which I discovered them.
What is your favorite lyric that 3 has sung? For as much as you can call it lyrics, I'd say Aquarius.
Daft Punk have been at it for quite a while now. They are regularly referred to as the Godfathers of the french house or filter-house, having made this style popular. In 1997, they released a live recording under the name Alive ‘97, and now ten years later, another live recording is being released.
Overall, I must say I am very impressed by the musical and vocal elements of the album and would recommend it to just about anyone. Any listener who loves the frenchdowntempo artistes Air should listen to what has been called a sort of British counterpart to AIR's revolutionary sound.
