Giorgio Moroder Had No Idea What Daft Punk Would Do with His Voice for Random Acccess Memories Posted by Jeffrey Harris on 12.29.2013
"They didn't give me any clue."
Speaking to NPR, music producer and DJ Giorgio Moroder said he had no idea about Daft Punk's plans for his voice on their hit album Random Access Memories.
According to Moroder, the French electro duo spent three hours in a studio with him recording his voice. When he asked what they had in mind with the recordings, he stated: "I was talking for three hours in a studio in Paris. I said, 'What are you going to do with it?' But they didn't give me any clue. I went back to the same studio last summer, where Florian Laggata, the engineer, was working. And I said, 'Okay, you know the song — you've heard it, because you recorded it. What did they do with my voice?' He said, 'I cannot tell you.' And I said, 'But you can at least tell me: Is it a good song?'"
Also speaking on the year in dance music, Moroder said: "I love the fact that guys like David Guetta, Aviici and the Swedish House Mafia are using instrumental songs and vocals. I think having Kelly Rowland sing an R&B song on a disco track is almost going back to Donna Summer, where we had the R&B vocals with the dance background. I think the DJs are the big, new stars in entertainment."
