Daft_Punk_1.jpgThe French newspaper Le Parisien this morning reported that Daft Punk’s new album is only a few months away and that they have a “new home” in the Sony subsidiary, Columbia as they have moved away from previous label EMI.  This will be the groups fourth LP and as reported previous is to feature Chic frontman Nile Rodgers and also Italian producer Giorgio Moroder

“All I can say is those guys are geniuses,” Chic frontman Nile Rodgers said of working with the duo. “To think that after all these years we’ve been trying to get together, they just show up at my apartment in New York City and the vibe between us is so powerful and so strong – it’s unbelievable. Spiritually and artistically, working with them was as good as anything I’ve ever done. It’s as great as being in the studio with Bowie, it’s as great as being with Bernard Edwards and it’s as great as the best stuff I’ve ever done with Duran or Madonna.”

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
