Mirwais
Production

French dj/producer Mirwais Ahmadzai, along with numerous other accomplices, is responsible for introducing the electro-pop sound that Daft Punk popularized in the late 90's. yet on Mirwais's own album, Production, we find him straying away from the sound that he helped create by using earthier (read: heavier) musical elements like big beat. this probably explains why Madonna's 2000 album Music sounded tighter and less luminescent than the Orbital-produced Ray of Light: Mirwais produced most of the former. but i digress...Production reaches farther than normal electro-pop by being slower, harder, and a little less dance-oriented. but i wouldn't go as far as to say that Mirwais attempts to step outside the realm of electro-pop, i'd argue that Production is like Daft Punk's Homework's nerdier, less eccentric cousin.
