Tribute video by Daft Punk for Nile Rodgers

February 22 in the morning, Nile Rodgers, legendary guitarist and CHIC’s leader, had delivered a screenshot on his Twitter with a very special message from Daft Punk:

Dear Nile, we are sending you this transmission to thank you for all your amazing songs.

Then he explained that the two robots have made a tribute video to him throughout his musical career but also for the release of his new album of CHIC. We must remember that Mr. Rodgers was a collaborator of Random Access Memories album and played for three tracks (Get Lucky, Loose Yourself to Dance and Give Life Back To Music). A 52min unique documentary called « Nile Rodgers: From Disco To Daft Punk » exclusively in the Franco-German TV channel, Arté, aired on April 25 at 22:15 (replay this Wednesday, May 13 at 0:45, then after on the website) and the robots have chosen this doc to unveil their video (directed by Cedric Hervet and Warren Fu). Indeed, to thank the famous guitarist for his big inspiration to their work, collaboration for Random Access Memories and for his huge career, the kings of French Touch release a very short film putting themselves in scene in writing a message on a vintage console (old terminal « Hazeltine 1500″, reference to Kraftwerk and their ‘Computer World’ album), with a retro futiriste universe recalling ALIEN from Ridley Scott. First level, the server room (or space laboratory) in the same scenery riddled with illuminated buttons as the UNBOXED trailer of RAM album. Second level, insertion of vinyl Carly Simon – Why (produced by Nile Rodgers and Bernard Edwards * 1982) in vinyl player. Third level, on the keyboard, the golden gloves from Guy-Manuel de Homem Christo quickly followed by Thomas Bangalter, in reflection on the screen. Here is the sequence cut by the youtube channel « TheDaftPunked »:

 

DEAR NILE,
WE ARE SENDING YOU THIS TRANSMISSION TO THANK YOU FOR ALL YOUR AMAZING SONGS.
YOUR MUSIC CONTINUES TO INSPIRE THE WORLD…
WITH LOVE, DAFT PUNK

 

The first single of the new CHIC named « I’ll be There » with a clip featuring the gorgeous supermodel Karlie Kloss, inspired by « Sister Sledge – Got to Love Somebody », released this March 20, followed by the album « It’s about Time » (released anything under that name since 1992) scheduled for June.

Reminder: Random Access Memories Unboxed
