Somewhere up in Disco Heaven, the sassiest of the celestial storks have compiled their most dazzling sequins, their loopiest Quaaludes, and their wildest dreams to give birth to the Ultimate Electronic Music Collaboration: Giorgio Moroder + Daft Punk. That’s right, the robot-loving French duo have teamed up for a Very Special — so special it’s AFTERSCHOOL SPECIAL — track with the legendary Italian disco producer Moroder.
Urb reports that Moroder told a reporter at the International Music Summit in (where else?) Ibiza that he had recently recorded what he calls a “rap” for Daft Punk’s latest, as-yet release-date-less album. For said “rap,” Moroder was asked to go into the studio and start talking about his life. Moroder was like, “Yeah, cool, I can handle that.” (Not an actual quote.) But then when he walked into the studio it was CRAZY because there were just tons and tons of microphones everywhere, microphones of random and intriguing vintages, microphones from the 1960s up until today. Moroder was like, “Umm, WHAT.” (Again, not an actual quote. Probably everything Giorgio Moroder says is charming and continental and has handclaps layered beneath it.) So then an engineer told him that “the mic they would use would depend on what decade of his life he was speaking about. When Moroder asked if anyone would know the difference, the engineer replied ‘They will know.’” Because, of course they will. They’re French disco robots from the future.
And hence today’s world became a little bit more glittery. It’s a beautiful story, isn’t it? And there’s a happy ending, too, despite the album’s current lack of a release date or a name or any more concrete details for those of us aren’t sure we can live another day without hearing said track. Okay, cue the montage where everyone hugs each other and life is better than ever. Because apparently, Chic’s Nile Rodgers has also been working with Daft Punk. Also, so has a unicorn with a multi-colored horn that lights up in rhythm with the beat. THE END.
