ALIVE 2021: A Daft Punk Podcast

Planet Ant Podcasts

Daft Punk is the most influential music group of the last quarter century. Two crate-diving music nerds melded disco, funk, glam pop and rock into a dizzying array of driving French Touch house music with sleek robot imagery and a unique vocoder sound, and changed the course of the music industry forever. Please follow us on this journey, as we delve into the history of Daft Punk, from their earliest days as best friends in eighth grade to their chart-topping fame as the world's most important and secretive dance music megagroup. Each week, we'll shift through biographies, old interviews and documentaries to research a specific era of Daft Punk's history. ALIVE 2021 is part history, part music review and all essential for any hardcore Daft Punk fan!

    Episode 18 - Random Access Memories, The Collaborators

    2:44:09

    After decades of success as one of the best and most influential sampling acts of all time, Daft Punk had a bold idea: what if, instead of sampling their heroes' music, they sampled their brains? And thus was born Random Access Memories, the robots' most ambitious, beautiful record of their career. Spanning nearly five years and studios around the globe, R.A.M. was recorded with care and precision with Thomas and Guy-Man welcoming some of their biggest influences, favorite contemporaries and best friends to play on the record. In this week's episode, we talk about the R.A.M. collaborators. Last week, we discussed the history of the record. Next week, we will do our track-by-track review.

On this week's episode, we talk about the history of this special record. Tune in over the next couple weeks as dive deeper into this masterpiece! Next week, we will discuss the collaborators.
