Early Version Of Daft Punk’s ‘Contact’ Made Available Online



With several weeks to go until the official release of Daft Punk’s hugely anticipated new album ‘Random Access Memories’ eager fans are still scouring the internet for glimpses as to what exactly is on the Frenchmen’s 4th full studio album.

The early version of the new albums closing track ‘Contact’ featuring DJ Falcon comes from a recording of a DJ set undertaken by Thomas Bagalter and Cassius alongside Falcon back in 2002 at Amsterdam’s Paradiso. The track was originally built around a sample from the song ‘We Ride Tonight’ by Australian rock outfit ‘The Sherbs’ and hasn’t altered too drastically from the rip from that set in the Netherlands doing the rounds online at the moment.

So if you literally cannot wait until the end of May check out the early incarnation of ‘Contact’ below.


Grahame Farmer

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.
