Daft Punk unveils the first episode in ‘The Collaborators’ video series; Giorgio Moroder featured
The Creators Project, a coalition between Intel and Vice, has released the first episode in a video series that will feature The Collaborators behind Daft Punk‘s forthcoming album, “Random Access Memories.” First featured is legendary disco producer, Giorgio Moroder, who we reported last May had been sought ought by the French twosome for aid on the album. In this short interview, Moroder discusses his long history with dance music, and confirms his voice-overs on the new album required the use of three microphones, one that replicated the sound of the 60s, one of the 70s, and the third of today. To close the interview, Giorgio left us with all the more reason to look forward to the highly anticipated album:
“It’s kind of overwhelmingly [with] a lot of stuff coming out, so Daft Punk wanted to do something and do it in a way that’s not done by just pushing a note or a chord. You hear that it’s nice and full and the drums and the bass have that warm, full sound. It’s time to have something new in the dance world. I love disco dance anyway, but this is like a step forward. They had to do something which is different, still dance, still electronic, but give that human touch back.”
Stay tuned for more episodes in The Collaborators series; we suspect you’ll be seeing names like Nile Rodgers, Paul Williams, Chilly Gonzales, and more.
