If Daft Punk needed an edge, this is it. The duo is notorious for hiding behind helmets, but the mysterious Sharkoffs is the one shrouding their classic in the shadows. This d&b Daft Punk remix is a major tune.
Sharkoffs "Around The World" remix sounds like a totally different track. The hardly intelligible vocals are generations beyond the bubbly robotic betas. The original sounds more fitting for a merry-go-round after this trip around the world. Sharkoffs does manage to keep an uplifting melody alive throughout the track, but there’s now a heavy complexity behind it.
Sharkoffs is listed only as an “anonymous DJ/Producer”, and an atypical one at that. Aside from this Daft Punk gem and some originals, he’s remixed Linkin Park to Phoenix to Tim Burton. A harsh d&b sound with Shaymalan-twists, Sharkoff is developing a sound all his own. On a Facebook post he described how he fits into the culture (or doesn’t):
I'm glad that there are people in this world who are still able to appreciate something different that goes against the general tide of the industry.
