Guy-manuel and Thomas Bangalter more commonly known as Daft Punk sit down for the first time in 6 years for a recorded interview with Pete Tong at the 2013 Coachella Festival. They discuss their new album Random Access Memories. They discuss the homage to the 70′s and being able to “create the record they always wanted to”.
They discuss how working on the Tron feature film soundtrack using a full team of muscians opened up their creative minds to what they could do with their own music. They then decided to bring along the all star cast of guest musicians for the album including Pharrell Williams, Nile Rodgers, Giorgio Moroder, Chilly Gonzales, Julian Casablancas, and more. They brought some of the best muscians alive to help truly create the sound they have always wanted to.
