“For their latest full-length tribute, Vitamin String Quartet tackles Daft Punk's biggest album to date. Random Access Memories is reimagined with the classical technique of Vitamin String Quartet, putting a whole new spin on the robotic duo's tribute to 20th century pop and electronic music. Listen as Daft Punk's synths, drum machines and vintage vocoders are translated into violin, viola and cello as VSQ takes on "Get Lucky," "Lose Yourself to Dance," "Doin' It Right," and the rest of the album's massive anthems.” – Record Store Day

“Vitamin String Quartet formed in 1999 with a curious album idea: What if a string section performed Zeppelin’s greatest hits? Years and countless records later, that simple formula has become the blueprint for Vitamin String Quartet, widely regarded as the source for innovative string renditions of popular music…

…we put out what might be the most ambitious album of ours, so far, which was a full string quartet spin on Daft Punk’s Random Access Memories. If you know that record beyond just the two big singles, you know that’s a pretty massive undertaking, what with these long expansive pieces, electronic soundscapes, juggling genres, and a whole lot more. And, we put that out on vinyl as well, so we had to make sure the production and performances were super on-point to really impress the audio heads who go over wax with a fine-tooth comb.” – All Access
