DJ Hero just got harder, better, faster, stronger with Rolling Stone‘s revelation of 8 of the 11 exclusive mixes from futuristic French twosome, Daft Punk. Not only will Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel De Homem-Christo be cooking up their special blend of robotic beats for the game, they’ll also be lending their outlandish set designs and costumes, which game makers have meticulously reproduced.
- Daft Punk “Around the World” vs. Young MC “Bust A Move”
- Daft Punk “Da Funk” vs. NASA “Strange Enough ft. Karen O, ODB and Fatlip”
- Daft Punk “Da Funk” vs. Queen “Another One Bites the Dust”
- Daft Punk “Robot Rock” vs. Hashim “Al-Naafiysh (The Soul)”
- Daft Punk “Robot Rock” vs. Queen “We Will Rock You”
- Daft Punk “Short Circuit” vs. Boogie Down Productions “Jack Of Spades”
- Daft Punk “Technologic” vs. Gary Numan “Cars”
- Daft Punk “Television Rules The Nation” vs. No Doubt “Hella Good”
This marks the first time Daft Punk has participated in a videogame, but hopefully not the last.
And just for fun, here’s a picture of some Daft Punk hands hovering at the ready above the game’s streamlined turntable controller, courtesy of MTV Multiplayer.
