Rebel Beat

10

“The funk is strong with this one.”

Star Wars + Daft Punk = “Darth Punk – The Funk Awakens“, an outstanding fusion of our favorite space opera and electronic dance music. This neon masterpiece is the work of Infectious Designer and it’s one of the most awesomely geeky music videos we’ve ever seen. There are super shiny helmets, glowing shoes, irresistible beats, lightsaber battles, and even a droid with a built-in cassette tape deck.

“One day Vader and Fett will recruit for the the dark side, disguised as an electronic music duo… they will be arresting ears and administering intergalactic rhythm and beats. The Rebels won’t stand a chance. This is their music video, featuring ‘Dj Gonk’.”

There’s also a Darth Punk Prequel:

And a behind-the-scenes video:

We keep heading in the same direction.
You’ve become my own reflection.
Is that your soul that you’re trying to protect?
I always hoped that we would intersect, yeah.

You need time to cope and time to heal,
Time to cry if it’s what you feel.
Life can hurt when it gets too real.
I can hold you up when it’s hard to deal.

Alive, alive,
Alive is all I wanna feel.
Tonight, tonight
I need to be where you are,
I need to be where you are.

“All I want people to know is that our band fucked everything up– and we still did it! I just want them to realize that you can’t avoid the bullshit, but take it easy and don’t worry about it! You become worried that you wont get your dream and you sell your soul metaphorically, because you want your dream so bad. Be patient–it will happen."  ~John
