Pass The Popcorn: Kanye West, Pharrell & Nile Rodgers Sound Off In 'Daft Punk Unchained' Doc Trailer
Twenty years, four albums, two very funky robots. These are just a few of the numbers that make up French house pioneers Daft Punk, who in 2015 remain as relevant, as influential in both the aesthetic of the day and the textures, rhythms and, well, funk, of contemporary pop music. At the beginning of the summer, it was announced that the BBC would be spearheading a documentary that seems poised to gather some of the game’s biggest names and explain just how the daft ones touched them, their style, their production, and really, their lives. The film, whose english subtitled version just premiered in London this past weekend, finds the likes of perennial hitmakers Kanye West, Pharrell, Nile Rodgers, Giorgio Moroder and damn near every collaborator, past or present, that’s ever worked with the frequency-freaking duo, testifying to their funky glory. And while no stateside release has been announced as of yet, a trailer for the film has finally surfaced, featuring the aforementioned gushing over Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo and Thomas Bangalter (Daft Punk.) The trailer for Daft Punk Unchained is available for your viewing pleasure below, just be sure to hold tight as we hone in on an official stateside release in the months ahead.
