Following on from last week’s Border Community label smash hit ‘Soopertrack’ by Extrawelt, this week we bring you another friend of the label, Nathan Fake, with his track ‘The Sky Was Pink’ with a little help from label owner James Holden for the remix.

From the Norfolk town of Kings Lynn, England, Nathan Fake released his debut album ‘Drowning in a Sea of Love’ in 2006, unsurprisingly this was on the Border Community record label. Nestled in amongst the 11 tracks, is ‘The Sky Was Pink’ - a full on automation fest, which Lucas lovingly and painstakingly recreates for your amusement and educational fun!

This 16 minute video is packed with passion as we show you the bass, the keys and the pads from one of our favourite techno masterpieces of the last 20 years, and do our very best to do the track justice whilst showing the power and flexibility of DRC in the process.

We strongly urge you (if you are an Ableton user!) to download and check out the Ableton session which accompanies the video, it contains all the automation for the evolution of each of the track’s sounds - something you won’t want to miss!

As always, let us know in the comments what you think, and what you want us to take on next!

How to make the arpeggio, bass and pad sounds from Daft Punk 'Son Of Flynn' in DRC...

Published on 20 Sep 2019

In the world of electronic music, Daft Punk need no introduction. Effortlessly cool, they’ve built a unique brand that’s as recognisable by sight as it is by sound, with technology forming the backbone of their image. Robots are cool, flashing LED lights are cool, and with Daft Punk you get both; iconic helmets and hi-tech futuristic outfits have been a fashion fixture since the emergence of the robot personas the Parisian pair adopted.On September 9th 1999, three months before the world was scheduled to end due to the infamous ‘millennium bug’, a sampler they were using randomly crashed and exploded, (reportedly because the date was 9/9/99) literally sparking the creation of the robots. The idea was a perfect fit for the DJ duo to maintain their anonymity, having previously sported a farago of face masks during their early live gigs together.With a style inspired and influenced by science fiction films, Daft Punk were an obvious choice for the director of 2010’s ‘Tron Legacy’ Joseph Kosinski when deciding who would score the film’s soundtrack. When asked about his decision prior to the film’s release at San Diego Comic Con 2009, he replied with a rhetorical ‘How could you not at least go to those guys?’.Thankfully Daft Punk said yes of course, and we have a fantastic, atmospheric, synth orchestral fusion soundtrack as a result. We take a look at the beautiful ‘Son Of Flynn’ in this week’s video as we recreate the track’s arpeggio, bass and pad sounds using DRC, with a little help from DLYM and K7D too.Click here to download the Ableton project fileProviding techno logic around the world,Team Imaginando...
