Nile Rodgers pens official IMS anthem, relishes in welcome from electronic dance community
Infamous musical maestro and Chic guitarist Nile Rodgers has been confirmed as the scribe of the official International Music Summit (IMS) anthem for 2013. Rodgers, who spilled the beans on collaborative duties with Daft Punk during his keynote speech at last year’s conference, looks to build on the hype stirred by his involvement in the duo’s first album single “Get Lucky” with British house evangelist Eats Everything providing official remix duties.
The track, which will be showcased and deconstructed by Rodgers himself following a follow-up interview with Pete Tong during the conference, will see the legendary producer tip his hat to the unsuspecting relevance he has found amid the thriving electronic music community.
“I am so excited to be creating the IMS Anthem 2013. I had such an inspirational time at IMS last year and its opened up many new connections including collaborations with many contemporary electronic artists. I’ve created this new track with Ibiza and the electronic community in mind before handing over to one of my favorite remixers of today – Eats Everything. I can’t wait to hear what he does with it, and to hear it at Dalt Vila in Ibiza! Historic site for historic music productions.”
The International Music Summit runs from May 22 through 26. Hosted by Pete Tong, the annual event brings the business and Balearic scenery together for a three-day stint of keynote speeches, networking and industry showcases.
