Oreoo's insight:

Fred Falke on how Daft Punk's comeback is an "adrenaline shot into the mainstream EDM".

Daft Punk on EDM Producers: 'They're Missing the Tools'

Daft Punk on EDM Producers: 'They're Missing the Tools'
Billboard
CODE's Kerri Mason had the rare chance to speak with Daft Punk's Thomas Bangalter last week for an extended feature in this week's issue of Billboard.
Oreoo's insight:

     Thomas Bangalter, half of legendary Electronic Dance Music duo "Daft Punk" created tension in the EDM scene after talking about how producers nowadays are "Missing the tools" and how it's been made "easier" to saturate the industry with repetitive styles of music creation.

 

     The story has two sides to it. New generation Vs. Previous generation. Basically, Bangalter reffers to how this genetation of "producers" are available to a huge ammount of VST's that are full of banks with pre-made sounds, this creating a laptop-based era of producers, saturating the scene with the same style of sounds, no original content, as if creativity did not matter anymore. 

 

     Thomas Bangalter reffers to how Daft Punk are from the previous generation of studio based music. Of course, this duo has reached legendary status thanks to sticking to their roots, and keeping that disco-flavored "funk" in their tracks, even though they dissapeared from EDM a few years ago. Today, their new album "Random Access Memories" is the most anticipated LP in music generally. Bangalter speaks of how creating your unique sound is crutial. Bringin live drums, and live instrumentation into dance music is the perfect example of keeping creativity alive, wich Daft Punk have maintained throughout their entire career.

 

At the end, it all comes down to your preference. Many producers have survived, and made a big name of themselves by being laptop-based producers. Just as artists like Daft Punk have by keeping it old school, and always relying on their studio, and hardware.
