EWF went on to appear on the soundtrack of the April 1983 animated feature film Rock & Rule with the song "Dance, Dance, Dance". Artists such as Debbie Harry of Blondie, Lou Reed and Cheap Trick also featured on the soundtrack. LA Weekly noted the "standout track" is "Earth, Wind & Fire's funky club jam Dance, Dance, Dance". Rock & Rule was the first feature film of Nelvana Studios. Spin called Rock & Rule "the greatest oddball scifi musical ever committed to animation cels". Keith Breese of Contact Music described the movie as "a masterpiece of outré animation and wildly ambitious vision and remains a triumph in animated feature film". Rock & Rule has also gone on to become a cult classic.
Daft Punk were a French electronic music duo formed in 1993 in Paris by Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo. They achieved popularity in the late 1990s as part of the French house movement, combining elements of house music with funk, disco, rock and pop. They garnered acclaim and commercial success and are regarded as one of the most influential acts in dance music.
Daft Punk's musical style has mainly been described as house, French house, electronic, dance, and disco. Sean Cooper of AllMusic describes their musical style as a blend of acid house, techno, pop, indie rock, hip hop, progressive house, funk, and electro. They incorporated extensive sampling; Guardian chief critic Alex Petridis described their approach to music and art as "magpie"-like.
Across the course of 2012, it's been barely possible to go longer than a week without another exciting and worthy reissue jostling to dent our collective attention (and bank balance). The year in new releases has been defined by what Luke Turner described as a "glorious muddle" - a range of great music that's cut across boundaries of genre and style, leading to a more varied twelve months' worth of listening than ever before. Scanning down our list of archival reissues, live albums, free-to-download mixes, compilations and odds and ends, the same is certainly true here: our list features everything from reissued drone and doom to early computer music and classic grime instrumentals, Ghanaian cosmic funk and cumbia to industrial and punishing techno. 350c69d7ab
