Can’t wait to listen to the new Daft Punk Album? Yeah, you and just about everyone else. In the meantime, Barcelona’s Alex Ferrer, better known by the stage name Sidechains, has something for you – The Original Daft Punk Fake EP. No, this isn’t Daft Punk, and that’s pretty apparent from a listen. What it is however, is a wickedly fun trip down memory lane that should put a smile on your face.
The EP starts off with the aptly named intro track, Da Fake, a hard-hitting piece of robot funk rock that immediately sets the tone. It’s just a warm up however, before the main attraction, Robots Never Die. Utilizing all too familiar sounds and voice effects, Sidechains pays homage to the French legends with this funky electro rager. The song really picks up steam as it goes along, taking the listener on an interstellar journey that eventually explodes into the stratosphere. Also make sure to check out Sidechain’s jazzy cover of Voyager, which is fantastic in its own right. To download the new EP and check out more tracks, head over to his SoundCloud page.
