Daft Punk set to do radio show with Pete Tong BBC Radio 1 + Bonus Essential Mix


The exact details are still be unveiled, but BBC Radio 1 DJ Pete Tong has announced that Daft Punk will be doing something this Friday May 10th at 9pm. Since they did an essential mix back in 97' there is definite chance for a followup.

We might potentially hear some new tracks off the upcoming album Random Access Memories as we creep on the released date on May 21. This is speculation based off of Pete Tong's post of course. We will post updates here.

2:15pm UPDATE: We now have news that this Friday Pete Tong will be airing the first audio interview with the duo in 6 years that was recorded at this year's Coachella. Since it is getting broadcasted via BBC Radio 1 we can hope for a clip of another new track off Random Access Memories. Based on them doing one in the past, an Essential Mix is defintely not unrealistic in the future.

BONUS: As a bonus we have included their 1997 BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix featuring 2 hours of some of their best classic originals, remixes and favorite tracks.
