Pentatonix Tackles Daft Punk's Greatest Hits, A Cappella: VIDEO


Pentatonix

A cappella group Pentatonix is turning out the clips these days. We barely finished eating up their 'Evolution of Beyoncé' medley and now they've put on their glowing contacts for a smooth tribute to Daft Punk in which they tear up "Technologic", "Get Lucky", "Digital Love", "One More Time", "Harder Better Faster Stronger", and "Television Rules the Nation".

Check it out, AFTER THE JUMP...

  1. Keep in mind that this is all a capella: Kevin (the black guy) and Avi (the guy with the beard) provide the beat and foundation for the rest. They are such an amazingly talented group.

    And even appropriate for the group. Mitch (the dark haired singer) and, I think, Scott (the blond) are gay. They vlog together under the name Superfruit.

  2. it is not a capella - it is run through synthesizers and the voices are manipulated.

  3. I really don't understand all the fuss over Daft Punk, especially on this site.

  5. It's entirely a cappella, no electronic manipulation, bub. The do all this stuff live, and they are just as astonishing.

  6. No, there's electronic manipulation, in the jumps, the echoes, the reverb, all of that.

  7. @yuninv - While their voices have been altered, there is no instrumentation. That is what "a capella" means.

  8. @yuninv The "jumps" as you say, are video NOT audio. Yes they use reverb and delay or it would sound as dead as the studio they record in, but they don't use it for studio tricks. The repeats, skips and other effects are done vocally. YouTubes have posted clips of them doing bit's of the song live as a tease for the album.

  9. Avi provides most of that synth and echo vocally himself. He does some mind blowing stuff with overtones.

    You really can't believe what PTX is capable of with just 5 voices until you see them in person and unplugged... And then its still unbelievable.
