'Gates Of The Sun' sees De Homem-Christo reunite with Eric Chedeville under their Le Knight Club guise
A song by Daft Punk’s Guy-Manuel De Homem-Christo, released under his Le Knight Club guise, has been revealed online.
‘Gates Of The Sun’ is the work of De Homem-Christo and Crydamoure record label co-founder Eric Chedeville and features on the soundtrack to a French film of the same name, which stars Mike Tyson. Le Knight Club last released a song in 2002.
Chedeville explained his and de Homem-Christo’s contribution Gates Of The Sun earlier this year: “Guy-Man has made music in this film. Initially it had to be for a fight scene with Mike Tyson, but now it’s the final scene inside a club. It should not exceed two minutes, I think. At least 80 per cent of the soundtrack was made by the two composers Matteodo Patrick and Jean-Jacques Ipino.”
He added: “And the piece will not be signed ‘Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo’ but ‘Knight Club’, the nickname that we used at the time for Crydamoure. The director is a friend of Guy-Man, and he wanted to give him a hand.”
Daft Punk recently featured in a new documentary about Nile Rodgers. Titled Nile Rodgers: From Disco To Daft Punk, the documentary comes as the funk musician prepares the release of the forthcoming new Chic album. Daft Punk appear, helmet-clad, typing up a message for Rodgers to the strains of Carly Simon’s ‘Why’.
