I built and ran this website between 2000 and 2001, combining passion for popular music and programming. It was listed by MTV's now defunct MusicNewswire as one of the then nascent web's top twenty sources, alongside Billboard and VH1. The most exciting part of it — for a 13/14-year-old excited by new music — was receiving scores of pre-release CDs from record companies. The entire project was written entirely from scratch (frameworks and libraries were not the norm back then!) in PHP linking to a MySQL database, with HTML as well as a little CSS and JavaScript for the frontend; the code is available here.

Daft Punk - Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger
23 October 2001 | 12:26:21 GMT/UTC
Release: 1 January 1970 | 0:00:00 (Virgin)

Daft PunkFrom the reportedly excellent Discovery comes this, Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger. It's the new one from French duo Daft Punk.

Three minutes of punching beats under sedimentary layers of machine-based electronic rock. Vocals ripped to minute bits then pieced together again using the best music technology available. Their trademark sound is clearly distinguishable in Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger.

It's also reminiscent of Les Rhythmes Digitales, remember them? This material is definitely 'harder, better faster and stronger' than any of its rivals.
