Throwback Thursday: Daft Punk – Interstella 5555.
Interstella 5555 – The 5tory of the 5ecret 5tar 5ystem!
Fans of Japanese anime and Daft Punk will love this cult classic DVD.
– ‘Interstella 5555’ is the first of its kind – a full length 1-hour+ animation built entirely around an album score.
Designed by anime space-opera god Leiji Matsumoto [wiki that and recognize greatness!] ‘Interstella 5555’ is a story about a music group from another galaxy,
kidnapped by an evil cooperate media mogul, mindwiped, reformatted and brought to earth to become a hit pop band!
[Sounds kinda like an evolved Maurice Starr 😛 ]
The score – based on the popular, double-platinum selling album ‘Discovery‘ – features a slew of electronica hits including ‘One More Time’, ‘Face to Face’ , ‘Digital Love’ – AND – the hip-hop crossover sample ‘Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger,’ – which Kanye West successfully freaked into his own hit song ‘Stronger‘.
If you’re a fan of classic Japanese animation like ‘Votron‘ – ‘Robotech‘ or – ‘G-Force’? Your gonna luv this! 🙂
If your a fan of **electronica like I am, you’ll also dig this cartoon! But some fans REALLY get into the vibe!
DAMN I LOVE COSPLAY. But that is more of a Smurf-in-heat blue, rather than a nicer Interstella blue. Oh well.
** Why do I luv electronica? Maybe all of the years I spent clubbing in Europe in deep house raves… Frankfurt? Masstricht? Amsterdam? Berlin? [SweartoGawd -no one parties like Europeans. NO ONE. ]…. but I’ll save that for another blog! 😀
