See Pregnant Dutch Reggae Band Crush Daft Punk’s ‘Get Lucky’ Live
Postmen turn in soulful version of Pharrell-featuring hit
If you haven’t put your own spin on Daft Punk’s “Get Lucky” then you clearly don’t have a band or consider yourself a DJ. It’s practically a full-time job sifting through the Internet’s various offerings to the alter of Parisian electro-house, but it’s a worthy endeavor. Earlier this week, we brought you 9 great remixes of the track, ranging from Michael Jackson mutations to Justin Timberlake mashups. Then we brought it up to an even 10 with an 8-bit hack courtesy of chiptune dude Floating Point (not to be confused with the plural version thereof). Even Animal Collective auteur Panda Bear is gushing over the Punk these days, so we shouldn’t be surprised if the next great version of “Get Lucky” comes from a reggae-rap collective from the Netherlands. Okay, we’re surprised. In a session for Dutch radio station 3FM, Postmen lay down a bubbly, soulful rendition of the Pharrell-featuring single. They split Skateboard P’s contribution into a duet, and add a perfectly acceptable rap verse of their own, inspiring locally beloved host Giel Beelen to utter the universally understood exclamation of approval: Yeeeoooowwwwwwww.
