Did Thom Yorke DJ Maroon 5′s Halloween Party Dressed as Daft Punk?

Party people expect the unexpected during Halloween.  Women and men wearing next to nothing, and using Halloween as their excuse to do so is not the unexpected.  Unexpected is one musical celebrity dressing up as another musical celebrity without anybody realizing the difference.  This is reportedly to have been the case at a Halloween party that took place over the weekend.  Maroon 5 hosted a gathering, and naturally other music artists in the business showed up and showed face – except for rocker Thom Yorke.

Although it is unconfirmed, photos of the DJ dressed in a Daft Punk outfit have surfaced, and it seems like Thom Yorke’s signature hair is poking through the corners of the headgear.  Daft Punk has not been reached for comment, and nobody knows if they even care about the incident.  It was confirmed after the fact that Thom Yorke was in attendance, although nobody knows …

Listen to Daft Punk’s Full 15-Minute Mix for the Saint Laurent Fashion Show

Earlier on we had reported that Daft Punk serenaded the audiences of a Saint Laurent’s Spring/Summer 2013 collection fashion show.  Certainly, fans did not come to see Daft Punk in particular, and had it been known, it might have attracted a distinctly different type of crowd.  Regardless, the show went off without a hitch and the duo had the presence of mind to introduce themselves via business card, to attendees who might not have known who they were before.

Daft Punk recording the entire set and has posted it up on their Soundcloud account for those who weren’t invited to the event.…

Watch: Daft Punk Edit Junior Kimbrough Songs for Saint Laurent Fashion Show

Music from Daft Punk is as iconic as the recognizable outfit they wear during their performances.  Their guest appearance on the remake of the 1980’s movie “Tron” movie was welcomed and fitting as ever, but it doesn’t stop there.  The Duo has been working to get their music beyond audiences of EDM lovers, and in the ears of listeners at other types of venues.

Daft Punk worked on a soundtrack for the Saint Laurent show in Paris, which included remakes and mashed of songs by the late blues artist Junior Kimbrough.  The audiences had small cards attached to their seats that advertised that it was Daft Punk that was providing the tunes.

New DeadMau5: “There Might Be Coffee”

It definitely seems like Deadmau5 (a.k.a. Joel Zimmerman) has officially gotten over dubstep. After his recent collaboration “The Veldt,” I am sure I wasn’t the only one wondering if this was a sign that the Toronto based producer was pushing away from the sound of the day. I have a great love for “Random Album Title” and have always kind of hoped he would get back to something more epic than nasty, just because “Brazil” and “I Remember” oozed epic beauty. Then he released “Professional Griefers” with My Chemical Romance’s Gerard Way and things were a bit more “Sofi meet Ghosts n Stuff” so I was less sure.

However, with “There Might Be Coffee” I am starting to think that hunch is on the money. The track seems somewhat unfinished and is almost reminiscent of something …

10 Tracks That Changed The Face Of Dance Music

It’s safe to say that modern dance music is very diverse these days. There are many great tracks released every week that DJs are quick to discover and download so that they can keep their sets fresh and their dance floor moving. No matter what style of music one plays it’s often times a rigorous labor of love to to listen and review each new track to determine which ones will make the cut. I really don’t complain too much about the process because I love it, and it’s much easier these days with the “interweb” at our fingertips to simplify the whole process.

Oh, how times have changed. I remember hearing Scott Henry play his coveted set closing record and having to make my way up to the booth to train spot it, only to see that it was a white label. Then, if I was lucky, I would …
