Captain Pikant's analysis of Daft Punk's drum patterns

The drums really got harder, better, faster, and stronger.

Analyzing DAFT PUNK's Beats - The Secrets of French House | Drum Patterns Explained

I love music analysis videos and this is now one of my favourites. Captain Pikant’s did a half-hour analysis of Daft Punk’s drum patterns from Homework and Discovery and it’s amazing to hear how the rhythms were constructed, including some of the additional samples on top.

Unlike other videos I’ve posted that focus on the samples, this is more about the rhythmic element of Daft Punk’s work and how it forms an integral part of the French house aesthetic. Whether you’re a French house appreciator or a producer looking for inspiration, I recommend that you watch and save this for future viewing. Man, I miss Daft Punk so much 😭
