I have been seeing the name Daft Punk often on my music radar screen. I finally took the plunge and gave their music a solid listen today. Woah how cool are the textures of the mixes they are producing.
Let’s start with their new single, “Get Lucky” from the forthcoming album Random Access Memories which is a collaborative effort with Daft Punk(Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo and Thomas Bangalter), featuring Pharrell Williams and Nile Rodgers.
Nile Rodgers is a major catalyst in music. He explains on the video below how he creates with his guitar. He then pinpoints his role with Chic, his mutual respect for David Bowie and Donna Summer. It’s so cool to see how enthused he is to work with Daft Punk.
