Italian synth pioneer and disco legend Moroder recently spoke about working on the new Daft Punk album, which is set for release on May 20.
Speaking to Vice as part of their Creators Project series, Moroder says that the album is a “step forward” for dance music.
“Daft Punk wanted to do something and do it in a way that’s not done by just pushing a note or a chord,” he said. “You definitely hear that it’s nice and full; the drums and the bass have that warm, that full sound. This is like a step forward.”
Speaking about working with Daft Punk, Nile Rodgers said: “The collaboration felt so unbelievably natural that it made me realise that I need to be in the studio with people. I love partnering with people. And then from that moment, a windfall of recording started happening. I just started going in with whomever I could.”
