Watch Nile Rodgers Discuss Daft Punk Collaboration
Last week, we posted a video of the Italo-disco mastermind talking about his history and about Daft Punk, the first of a series of videos about the people who helped Daft Punk out on their forthcoming album Random Access Memories. Since then, they’ve also posted a video centered around the house-music evangelist Todd Edwards. And now the third video in the series focuses on Nile Rodgers, who, like Moroder, is one of the greatest pop music producers of all time. Rodgers led the legendary disco crew Chic, and he helped create iconic hits for people like David Bowie, Diana Ross, and Sister Sledge. And he’s an utterly charming raconteur, one who delights in talking about his own past and about his “organic” experience working with the robot duo. He also plays, on his guitar, a bit of his part on an unnamed forthcoming Daft Punk song. Watch the Nile Rodgers video below.
Random Access Memories is out 5/21 on Columbia.
