New York State of Mind 1.0 feature 1992 and 1993 in-person interviews with Intelligent Hoodlum, Brand Nubian, and Pete Rock & C.L. Smooth. Each was instrumental in and furthered Hip-Hop in their own unique manner. The title pays homage to the Nas song “N.Y. State of Mind” of his classic 1994 album, Illmatic, produced by DJ Premier straight out of the dungeons of rap.

In the summer of 1993, Tragedy Khadafi traveled to Toronto with Tuff Break head honcho Evan Forster to promote Tragedy: Saga of a Hoodlum. Tragedy spoke on his early days on the streets, Marley Marl, prison, the album, corporate America, religion, and his plans for the future.

The featured interview with Lord Jamar, Sadat X and DJ Sincere took place over lunch inside downtown Toronto’s Jerk Pit shortly after the release of In God We Trust. It made for a relaxing atmosphere and orders for fruit punch and snapper can be heard on the recording. Brand Nubian were chill and open to speak on any subject. Lord Jamar, Sadat X and DJ Sincere spoke candidly on a variety of topics relating to the group; their personal spiritual beliefs; the bootleg street copies of their music that circulated in Bodegas; self-production; the departure of Grand Puba from their ranks; the potent message behind their graphic lyrics; personal and spiritual beliefs, affiliations and faith; and the necessary Armageddon to save the planet from its impending socio-political revolution and class war.

The featured interview occurred in Toronto before the release of Mecca and the Soul Brother, in the basement of Toronto’s legendary Concert Hall. Reverberations from the live show up above can be heard for the first six minutes of the conversation. C.L. Smooth spoke on Mecca as a way of life and of its state of mind; the inspiration behind the lyrics; ghostwriting; the mechanics and thought process behind their song writing process; and the fallout from the recent Biz Markie sampling judgement. Pete Rock a.k.a. Soul Brother No. 1 and Chocolate Boy Wonder, stuck to the music stating “Every beat I do it has to be fat.”

The Real Daft Punk embodies the dynamic practices and principles that launched Daft Punk to superstardom presenting the essence and gift of Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo. A profound reflection of the tidal ebbs and flows of Dance Music intersected with divergent thinking. This book is honest behind the music tales of an exceptional brotherhood and the catalytic sea change fashioned by its comeuppance. Over two exclusive interviews captured in the age of Homework and the gestation period leading up to and including the release of Discovery, The Real Daft Punk provides vital insight into how the duo achieved unparalleled success without compromising artistic integrity or musical vision.


The book chronicles the rise of House and Techno. In the words of its co-conspirators, drawing from talks with Kevin Saunderson, Arthur Baker, Byron Stingily, Moby, 808 State, Underworld, Giorgio Moroder, Stacey Pullen and Cajmere/Green Velvet, in the same time frame as the rise of Daft Punk. Adding the revealing tales of DJ Sneak and the notorious Da Mongoloids crew, who drew from the same wellspring of inspiration and included Daft Punk.


Further setting The Real Daft Punk apart is over eighty original behind the music photos unmasking Daft Punk and their peers. Images from 1997, 2000, and 2001 Miami Winter Music Conference, the January 2001 photo shoot with Daft Punk in NYC, and others from inside clubs and interviews of the critical period in history.


The Real Daft Punk is much more than the narrative of Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo exploding across international markets and opening up the Art Form to legions of new listeners. It is a story that, like its subjects, dismantles archaic unwritten rules of music industry conduct while providing the ideation necessary to lead a successful career as a confident creative with a rich legacy.


The Real Daft Punk answering the questions who is Daft Punk? What is their purpose? Where did their unique sound originate? When did they begin to devise different music? Why do they prefer to remain anonymous? And how do they create tracks?
