The current DJ Mag carries a 4-page feature, ‘Close To The Edit’, about the re-edits scene and how, from being very much an underground activity, the domain of a relatively small number of DJs, it’s grown into a global movement – really hitting its stride with the emergence of SoundCloud following its 2008 launch, with re-edits now firmly established as a DJ staple in clubs throughout the world.

Daft Punk are sitting pretty at the top of the UK singles chart for the first time. The track in question, ‘Get Lucky’, taken from their forthcoming album, ‘Random Access Memories’, came as something of a surprise, for instead of hitching itself to the current EDM juggernaut that’s sweeping America, the French duo have completely bucked the trend by drawing their influence from Disco, featuring its most celebrated guitarist, the great Nile Rodgers of the Chic Organisation (as well as R&B vocalist, Pharrell Williams). A media sensation, it’s everywhere at the moment – on the radio, on the TV, in the clubs and, of course, all over the internet, becoming the most streamed new release in Spotify history. It’s already been re-edited by a whole host of DJs and is pretty much nailed on to be the single of the summer.
