The 8th episode of Daft Punk’s The Collaborator series features American song writer Paul Williams. In this episode Paul Williams talks about the importance of being anonymous and … well, he was kinda all over the place to be honest. Nonetheless, it was an excellent insight to the making of this year’s most anticipated album.
I’ve been out of town in the past few days, therefore I’m a bit behind on this. Anyhow, here’s the 7th episodes of Daft Punk’s documentary of The Collaborators Series. This time around they have DJ Falcon to talk about the art of sampling and a bit history of the French Sound. There’s also short clips of Daft Punk back in the days when they were human. I can’t wait for May 20th.
The sixth episode of Random Access Memories | The Collaborator features pianist Chilly Gonzales. In this episode Gonzales talks about how he was brought in to the project to create a bridge on a track that has key switches in the middle. He also talks about he importance of harmony and how badly under used it is in pop music. This episode is another excellent behind the scene look to this highly anticipated album.
Here’s the 5th episode to Daft Punk’s Random Access Memories ‘The Collaborator’ series. This time around we get to sit dow with Animal Collective’s drummer The Panda Bear. In here he talks about how instead of sampling old records, they sample new live music in the old way, then turn it into an old sounding song that sounds modern (yes, it does sounds like these two sentences contradict each other). Another interesting insight to the making of this highly anticipated album.
The 4th episode of The collaborators series from Daft Punk’s Random Access MEmories features Pharrell Williams. In this episode, Williams talks about going back to the groove of the mid 70’s era where, the whole dance music were magical.
Here’s a 1 minute teaser of what’s destined to be song of the summer Daft Punk’s ‘Get Lucky’. They’ve been revealing things little by little and this suspense is killing me.
here’s the whole track!
Daft Punk’s Random Access Memories is probably one of the most highly anticipated album this year. Here’s a video interview with one of the collaborator in this album, the legendary disco producer Giorgio Moroder. It’s pretty funny considering he’s an old skool guy from the 70’s who is totally into digital production and Daft Punk who are contemporary producers and into the old skool analog sound. Interesting role reversal and quiet ironic actually.
