Hugo Appreciation / Harder Better Faster Stronger

That new Kanye song "Stronger" made me dig into the crates for this Neptunes Remix (in this day and age - two years ago is digging deep):
Daft Punk - Harder Better Faster Stronger (Neptunes Remix)

By the way, much respect to Chad Hugo - the overshadowed filipino half of the Pharell-dominated Neptunes and co-owner of Star Trak entertainment. While Pharell models for LV, jetsets with celebrities and hocks his overpriced gear with Nigo, Chad seems to enjoy his relative anonymity. While it would be nice for the brotha to step up into the spotlight, I can imagine that he craves privacy and normalcy (aside from cashing in millions in production money). As Chad often plays the background, some find it easy to theorize that he's the mastermind behind the scenes...allowing Pharell to play frontman. But I'm not totally willing to disparage Pharell's talents and Chad himself described a more symbiotic working relationship. Another case of Asian modesty? Nah, I'll give him the benefit of the doubt.
