Climb aboard Daft Punk’s sonic starship as the futuristic duo unveil a mix of throwback grooves and trippy dance tracks with their latest album Random Access Memories.  It almost serves as a f*ck you to the overindulged electronic sounds on blast at clubs by revisiting the beginnings of disco, paying homage to legend Giorgio Morodor (the mastermind
