Daft Punk talk on remixing their own new album, potential touring plans and inspiration for new album in first recorded interview in 6 years with Pete Tong from BBC Radio 1Posted in Events, News, Video by nick
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.
Shooting down the potential for upcoming touring plans. Stating they focus on one that at a time:
Guy-manuel: “Let’s enjoy listening, and we’ll see where it takes us”
Daft Punk touching on how they might be the only producers fit for official remixes.
Guy-manuel: “We are working on some mixes ourselves”
Pete: “So could be Daft punk’s remixes of Daft Punk?”
Guy”-manuel: Yes Probably, Daft Punk mixes of Daft Punk.”
Wow I can only imagine Daft Punk venturing into new genres to remix their own songs. We will keep you updated on news about the album, collaboratores, remixes, and more.
