Episode 7 of Daft Punk‘s The Collaborators series is with us and this time the star is French DJ and record producer DJ Falcon, who tells us that Random Access Memories has had so much passion and art put into it that the result is “brilliant”.
Not so, says one half of the French duo du jour Thomas Bangalter, who told GQ that the new album is, technically, supposed to really suck:
“In Scream 2, they have this discussion about how sequels always suck. The thing we can ask ourselves at some point is like: We’re making music for twenty years. How many bands and acts do you have that are still making good music after twenty years? It always sucks — almost always, you know?”
Just in case you missed the point, Guy de Homem-Christo helpfully nails it home – “So our new album is supposed to really suck.”
We think we’re probably on the DJ Falcon side of the fence here. Take a peek at his Collaborators video to hear all about the house specialist’s long-time relationship with the robots and how NASA provided them with audio recordings of space missions for the album. Oh, and be sure to revel in the early footage of Daft Punk playing at a warehouse rave.
