Following up Giorgio Moroder and Todd Edward’s testimonials, there is now a third installment to the Collaborators Series of Daft Punk’s upcoming release,Random Access Memories.
This video now focuses on Chic’s cerebral mastermind, Nile Rodgers. Rodgers talks about his musical upbringing in the jazz fusion era, his love for Donna Summer’s billet doux classic “Love To Love You Baby,” and his legacy with the disco bombasts of Chic. The most interesting parts of the video is when he talks about working with “The Robots”: “I feel like I’m working with contemporaries, with people who grew up with me and feel it the same way we felt the vibe when we were creating this stuff. They went back to go forward.”
He also brings out the old Fender telecaster to show off his guitar chops by playing the funky riff off “Le Freak,” and a lick off of what seems to be on the forthcoming album. Watch the video below.
