A rare Daft Punk track was found late last year by the band’s label Soma Records, after shuffling through a box of old demo tapes. The young duo had sent the Scottish house and techno label a demo in 1994. Now the track, named Drive, has emerged online. You can check it out below.
The track is listed on Soma Records – 20 Year’s Compilation, which is out now.
Label manager Chris Lamb spoke about finding the rare recording:
At the tail end of 2010 we combed through boxes of DATs, pictures and god knows what else to find artefacts of Soma’s early days. Imagine our surprise when we discovered a tape simply titled Daft Drive. We hooked up the DAT machine and inserted the tape with the utmost care, pressing play and praying that for one, the tape contained what we hoped, and two, that it didn’t savage it like a dog chewing on a bone.
