It’s only been a few hours since Youtube sensation, Jack Conte, uploaded his newest video and already its attracted a metric ass-ton of acclaim…and he deserves every bit of it. Using just a Launchpad laid atop a flatscreen TV, the San Francisco-native, who is one half of indie music duo Pomplamoose, masterfully mashes up tracks from two of the biggest names in electronic music; Daft Punk‘s “Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger” and Skrillex‘s “Rock N’ Roll (Will Take You To The Mountain)”. As if having the balls to even attempt something like that wasn’t enough (let alone completely knocking it out of the park), he adds even more wow-factor by showcasing some of his other talents with synched-up visual sequencing across both the TV and the controller. The whole thing is just an amazing display of creativity and skill. Check it out and be sure to go watch some of the other awesome videos on his Youtube channel. (Especially his remix of Thrift Shop, which features a Launchpad-playing robot.)
Hello, my name’s Justin. I’m 25-years old and have been a music enthusiast for as long as I can remember. I’ve always enjoyed EDM, but it wasn’t until a few years ago that I truly embraced it and fell in love with the community. My enthusiasm has evolved into passion, and I’m thankful to the EJ team for providing me with a medium to share it with all of you.
