Daft Punk‘s Random Access Memories has apparently sparked a civil war within the world of dance music. First, the French Robots maligned the current state of EDM, essentially calling it unimaginative. Then Diplo responded with some comical critiques of the duo’s new album via Twitter. Now British DJ Fatboy Slim has stepped in to defend the album.
On Wednesday, Fatboy Slim told reporters, “I love ‘Get Lucky.’ I think it’s a breath of fresh air after all that EDM, sort of Euro stuff, it’s like, ‘That’s how good dance music can be’. That’s Daft Punk’s job, is to kick the rest of us up the arse and go, ‘Come on, it’s getting a bit stale.’” He added, “I prefer the disco-y bits to the more Tron-y bits, but that’s not a very full review! But well done to Daft Punk for being a breath of fresh air.”
One thing Diplo and Fatboy can probably agree on: Pitbull‘s unofficial “Get Lucky” remix is just the worst.
