Third Twin is Daft Punk (Electro Expose)
The Tron Legacy soundtrack is probably one of the most anticipated soundtracks of all time. There have been about 15,789,427 leaks since we found out electro-heros Daft Punk were assigned the project.
One of those leaks, a collection of tracks originally named after scenes and clips of the film, sounded suspiciously like the obvious follow-up to their Alive 2007 set, but was quickly dismissed by Disney HQ as a fake.
However, fans of DP weren’t quick to buy that line. Conspiracy theories about the tracks being authentic yet “rejected” started circulating the web, and then Third Twin happened.
Third Twin is a mysterious duo claiming the tracks on myspace and youtube, who didn’t seem to want any formal recognition for their stellar sounds or be pictured. Where did they come from? Why were they biting DP so hard? How come they never released anything before and then suddenly are, like, amazing?
Then the “real” Tron soundtrack leaked, and I hungrily ate it up, only to discover that the first track from Third Twin’s “fake” soundtrack is THE SAME SONG as one of the middle songs from Disney’s official release, End of Line.
Interestingly, the “Third Twin” track in question is not represented by Third Twin online. In no way have they claimed it as their own. It was released in the original leak and that’s it.
Luckily, we downloaded that shit as soon as it hit servers and saved it, and here it is.
Still not convinced? Here are some other reasons to believe us when we say Third Twin is Daft Punk.
- Daft Punk are usually quick to dispel unfounded rumors about their work (see their fake show in China) yet they haven’t said one word about the Third Twin conspiracy.
- Third Twin’s album is titled “Homemade.” What other debut album does that sound like?
- The guy posting Third Twin videos on youtube goes by AlexDaft26. (The fake soundtrack was first leaked on July 26)
- AlexDaft26 is the only user to have uploaded both the original leak and Third Twin, including this Scene 3 track. (Video below)
- Six of Third Twin’s top friends on myspace are Daft Punk.
