Daft Punk Essential Mix 2.03.97

Daft Punk, Essential Mix for BBC Radio 1 February 3, 1997 (Daft fucking Punk people!)

Okay, this is a new thing here at Pound for Pound. I'm gonna try to throw up some DJ sets by famous DJs, the kind that we've all heard of and get paid lots of money to spin and put out stuff on Fabric and things like that. You know what I'm sayin'. I figure that it could be an every Sunday thing or maybe an every other Sunday night thing. These are going to be much larger files, so I'm not sure if people are interested in downloading stuff like this. Please email me or leave comments and let me know what you think.

I can't think of a better set to kick things off with than an early DJ set by Daft Punk, patron saints of this blog. This one was done for Pete Tong's Essential Mix program on BBC Radio 1 back in 1997, when the duo were just beginning to blow up. It's a fucking dope set, 2 hours long, covering all sorts of musical ground. Listen in around the hour mark for some of the sickest, filthiest sounds you'll ever want to hear. Mang, download this!

-What do I love most? New parties! Here's the place to be tonight NYC, for the first Extended Play. Host Spencer and resident DJs Jermaine D. and Eric Tribs have started up a new weekly to take the weekend one more night. They're joined by guest DJs Nico XO and Gurj tonight, there'll be special guests every week, open vodka bar from 10-11, this is gonna be good. How good? It's going to end my boycott of The Delancey (168 Delancey St.), where I had a particularly nauseating experience involving, ugh, forget it, I don't even want to think about it. Fuck Murray Hill, btw. We'll be saying more about this party, a great addition to the scene.

-It looks like Sundays are the new Saturdays. San Fran gets into the action with Propaganda Intimate Discotheque. It happens every Sunday at Laszlo (2536 Mission), hosted by Meleksah, no cover, Jefrodisiac and Bertie P spinning tonight, see the flier for future May DJs. This sounds good.

-You know what else I love? Classic parties that do week after week, no excuses or letdowns. LA's Le Disko is the perfect example, doing the indie dance thing every Sunday night, making life better for all the beautiful people in Los Angeles. Tonight's edition is an LA vs ATL rumble, as Atlanta's Preston Craig drops by as a special guest, along with Dan Oh. Of course, Daniel, Paparazzi and Keith 2.0 hold it down as they do every week at the Spider Club at Avalon (1735 Vine St.). A true classic.

-What do I love most of all? Besides cute girls with bangs and boobs, that is. The Smiths! And Morrissey! Kyle M and Mike T have clearly
