That's also why DJ Falcon, a.k.a. Stephan Queme part of the ever-expanding universe of Daft Punk cronies and collaborators dubbed "Daft Crew" enjoys almost instant credibility wherever MTV2 is broadcast. And his stats are stellar, including a co-production credit on Daft Punk's 1997 debut full-length Homework as well as a cluster of collabs with Bangalter ("Call on me," "So much love to give," and "Together") that round up his bourgeoning oeuvre. But don't misjudge, the Falcon isn't just a spinoff; he's a club killer all his own. Witness the fact when he charges through SET next Saturday, alongside resident Chicco Secci. Expect the playlist to include some of his own bloggy bombs, the requisite Daft Punk, and other stuff like Simian Mobile Disco, Rye Rye, Boys Noize, etc. From there, you know what to do ... Basically, have fun or die.
