Nile Rogers Talks the New Daft Punk Collaboration
According to a Mixmag interview with Nile Rogers following his set at Camp Bestival, Rodgers said: “All I can say is those guys are geniuses and 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.”
He continues, “Spiritually and artistically working with them was as good as anything I’ve ever done. It’s as great as being in a studio with Bowie, it’s great as being with Bernard Edwards, and it’s as great as the best stuff I’ve ever done with Duran or Madonna.”
Rogers finished up with a statement that can only be described as a bold claim, saying: “It’s going to be so cutting edge that people aren’t going to expect what they’re doing.”
It was reported a few months back that the electronic duo would be collaborating with Rogers and it was rumored recently that a new single would emerge soon. This easily could mean another few months, or years, of whirling rumors but they have already got us excited. We don’t expect anything but greatness!
