Daft Punk get a reggae makeover courtesy of Mato


It’s a law of pop music that pretty much every song sound better in reggae form, whether it’s by Beyoncé or John Denver. Not even discofied French house music is exempt, it seems. Back in June, reggae producer Mato released a full-length dub version of Daft Punk’s legendary debut Homework that transforms the slightly manic energy of the original recording into a deeply blissful space-out. A featured position in the latest email blast from NYC DJ suppliers Turntable Lab has brought it to EW’s ears and we’re hooked. The video for Mato’s remake of “Around the World” featuring stop action animated Playmobil figures makes it even better.
