This tribute, titled Da Chip! is a project spearheaded by a French musician by the name Je deviens dj en 3 jours that consists of video game music (chiptune) inspired remakes of Daft Punk songs from various chiptune composers. It’s awesome; so awesome that I just danced to it in my room by myself for about 15 minutes straight but then again, I also have a soft spot for video games and chiptune music while also being a fan of Daft Punk. Outside of the links to download the tribute and the bonus tracks, I’ve selected a few tracks that can be listened to from this blog entry. The webpage for the project is located at http://jedeviensdjen3jours.com/dachip.

The first song I chose is from UK chiptune musician, Microchip‘s rendition of One More Time from DP’s Discovery album. It makes me feel nostalgic to the times I used to watch the skateboard video, Chomp On This (which happened to have somewhat a video game inspired theme to it, via it’s use of Pac Man imagery) everyday after school before going skateboarding.

The second track, covering Daft Punk’s Superheroes, from Spanish artist, Stage7 translates the Barry Manilow sample driven song into bleep-bloopy goodness. It also makes me think DP sampled the title track from the Super Nintendo game, Top Gear, for the bridge of the song even more. (Seems also the sound has also been used in the band Muse song Bliss.)

Haha! This is so awesome! Are you planning to create anymore 8-bit Daft Punk music?

Hi! Thank you for choosing my track :D My song was intended to include the sample from the Manilow’s original song, but the project rules did not allow that and a sampleless version was released. If you want to listen to an improved version of Superheroes that contains such sample (AND the rimshot in the beginning), you are very welcome to link to http://tinyurl.com/st7-superheroes . Thanks! :)

Thank you for choosing my track :D It’s a pity the Da Chip! website got taken down :(
