Harder, Better, Faster, Sampler

Ugly Talented will be descending on Leeds tomorrow for the Wireless Festival which should be a great day out. It's a pretty focused line-up with Daft Punk headlining and LCD Soundsystem, New Young Pony Club and, erm, Mark Ronson in support. I'm not sure what to make of the Daft Punk live act though, are they playing records, using Ableton on a laptop or just two blokes in Battlestar Galactica costumes standing in front of an incredibly loud tape player?

Anyway, in anticipation I've picked out two tracks - one is an Eighties funk track which was taken wholesale creatively sampled by Daft Punk on "Robot Rock" and the other is a remix that I think totally eclipses the original (although I'm sure Sarra and Jo will disagree!).

Breakwater - Release the Beast

Mark Ronson - Stop Me [A Chicken Lips Malfunction]
