After all this Avicii garbage the last few days, I'm so ready for someone with some gravitas to make an EDM comeback. That person would be the French robot helmets themselves, Daft Punk.
Daft Punk's new album, Random Access Memories, is scheduled to drop on May 21st. To discuss the hype, Noisey sat down with Italian producer Giorgio Moroder, who earned his mint during the disco era, perhaps most notably with Donna Summer songs. Moroder is an EDM pioneer who worked with the robots on the new album. The money quotes to get you hyped:
"Daft Punk wanted to do something and do it in a way that's not done by just pushing a note or a chord. "You definitely hear that it's nice and full; the drums and the bass have that warm, that full sound.. This is like a step forward.... What the world needs now is not only good dance songs, which I think are out. The world needs something new."
