Behind The Rework: Daft Punk - 'The Brainwasher (Erol Alkan's Horrorhouse Dub)'

Daft Punk 'The Brainwasher' (Erol Alkan's Horrorhouse Dub) taken from his 'Reworks Volume 1' compilation, a track long been out of print and highly sought after on vinyl.

"I reworked Daft Punk's 'Brainwasher' back in January 2006, I didn't receive the parts as Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Man were away from the studio at the time, it was made using the master track which I chopped up in the sampler, and then built the rest of the track around it. It was heavily influenced by hearing records by Meat Beat Manifesto, Renegade Soundwave, Eon and 'The Exorcist' by The Scientist on pirate radio stations in my youth. I ended up making two separate versions, the other one was far more house-y but it didn't really connect with me the way this one did. It was perhaps totally out of step with what I used to play back then but it's definitely one of my personal favourites." - Erol Alkan
