In honor of the fact that Daft Punk have composed the music for the new TRON: Legacy movie, I decided to create an homage to the rocking robotic duo.

In true 139 Mix-tape style, I’ve mashed up, edited and remixed 23 of my favorite Daft Punk tracks into 6 minutes of Daft bliss that I’m calling “Definitive Daft Punk”.- Cameron Adams

In his third solo effort, John Frusciante (Former Red Hot Chilli Pepper Guitarist) decided to explore elements of electronica, synthpop and New Wave. Frusciante felt deeply connected to the spiritual plane while making the album, creating a theme that deals mostly with philosophical and psychedelic concepts.

The XX - Intro, Long Version (KJ Song Rec) | Third Monk

The XX’s unique sound has been catching a lot of ears, including Simpsons creator Matt Groening who asked the band to perform at a music festival he organized in England.


Blue Scholars – Lumiere (Samples The XX – Intro)

Other artists have sampled the popular Intro track from the XX, but none do it better than the underground hip hop duo from Seattle, the Blue Scholars.

MGMT – Electric Feel The Rock-Afire Explosion (Video)

MGMT - Electric Feel The Rock-Afire Explosion (Video) | Third Monk

MGMT‘s best music video features a bunch of robotic animals performing “Electric Feel

The Rock-Afire Explosion is an animatronic robot band that played in Showbiz Pizza Place from 1980 to 1990, and in various Showbiz Pizza locations between 1990-1992 as Showbiz rebranded and the band was steadily replaced by Chuck E. Cheese characters. The show was pioneering in many respects, featuring life-sized characters capable of facial expression, some were even programmed in such a way that they could actually play simple melodies on musical instruments.

Top 20 Best Songs of 2011 | Third Monk

Third Monk Presents the Best Songs of 2011

Best Songs of 2011 (#18 – #11)

18. A.Dd+ – Insomniac Dreaming

Featuring a neck-breaking beat from Black Milk, the track  finds A.Dd+’s Slim Gravy and Paris Pershun detailing the topics that keep them up at night. The whole venting/getting-shit-off-my-chest approach obviously isn’t new to hip-hop, but it’s rare that it’s executed this well. If you’re still sleeping on these guys, you better wake up.


17. Wale ft. Miguel – Lotus Flower Bomb

This mellow track from Wale finds him spitting verses about his lady love while Miguel provides the hook. Lotus flower is named “padma” or “kamala,” which also means vagina.


16. Vic The NorthStar – How I’m Doing

Ottawa-based emcee Vic the Northstar spits about his grind and hard work, a testament to his youth and ambition.


15. J. Cole ft. Trey Songz – Can’t Get Enough

J. Cole and Trey Songz hang with a beach full of babes in their video for Can’t Get Enough. Eventually they’re joined by Cole’s label mate Rihanna, who waves a flag, puffs on a cigar, and plays in the sand in her home country of Barbados.


14. Rockie Fresh & Casey Veggies – Duckin N’ Dodgin

Rockie Fresh and Casey Veggies were two of the nominees for the XXL Freshmen List, the two bring their summertime, cruise friendly Hip-Hop duet to the forefront with the visual at somebody’s country club.


13. The Black Keys – Lonely Boy

The Black Keys are still hot from the breakout success of their previous album Brothers, and “Lonely Boy” from their latest El Camino proves that the band’s still got a handle on crafting amazing hooks.


12. Miguel – Sure Thing

Every once in a while something comes out of those speakers and catches you off guard. Miguel’s got the same recipe as everybody else, but he’s tweaked it just enough to make his songs distinctive. The bass on Sure Thing sighs in the most soothing way just before the beat drops.


11. The Cool Kids Ft. Bun B – Gas Station

The simple hook, the patient kick drum and snaps, and Mikey’s smooth-talk laziness “Throw it in reverse for a shorty with the works/Write my number on some paper then throw it in her purse/As I ride by, first things first/nine times out of ten that cool shit usually works” all recall vintage Cool Kids.

Ratatat – Loud Pipes
Album: Classics (2006)

Ratatat’s album Classics catches an eclectic buzz with hand percussion, organ, cello and other bits and pieces. Rhythm is at the fore, and Loud Pipes is an example of the warm analog melodies interwoven with beats that just wanna rock.
