Todd Edwards is the latest collaborator confirmed for Daft Punk‘s Random Access Memories, with the band today releasing part 2 in its series of video interviews – a good sign that yesterday’s leaked guest list for the album is the real deal.
New Jersey DJ and producer Edwards, who co-wrote, sang and produced Face To Face from Daft Punk’s 2001 smash Discovery, is renowned for his unique sampling style, which involves collaging tiny samples set to a four-on-the-floor beat. In this video he talks about how working on Random Access Memories changed his life and how he had trouble keeping his involvement with the album a secret.
“I’m waiting for this album to intoxicate and infect everyone so I’m not making music in a sterile world anymore.”
We hear you, Todd. If the guest list is to be believed, the next installments of The Collaborators could feature anyone from Chic‘s Nile Rodgers to Pharrell Williams.
You can check out Part 1 of The Collaborators here, featuring Giorgio Moroder. Random Access Memories will be released in Australia on 17th May.
