Unreleased Daft Punk song "Drive" to be featured on Soma compilation2nd Aug 2011, 17:44 #1
I dont post here much anymore, but I just thought I'd leave this here in case you haven't seen it yet.
Apparently the guys at Soma found an unreleased Daft Punk tune from way back in 1994 on an old DAT, and it's now gonna feature on their "Soma Records: 20 Years" compilation!
No previews around as far as I know, but you can pre-order the CD here.
Well, who else is excited? I'm guessing this tune is gonna be in the style of their early techno stuff (New Wave EP era sound)
Oh yeah and "Alive" and the "Mothership Reconnection" remix are both also on the comp.
[mod edit] as requested for inclusion by SOMA:
Soma Records announce... Soma20 - Daft Punk – Drive Unreleased 1994
Tuesday, 2nd August 2011
Album available for pre-order now:-
At the tail end of 2010 we trailed boxes of DATs, pictures and god-only-knows what else to find artefacts of Soma’s early days. Imagine our surprise when we discovered a tape simply entitled ‘Daft Drive’. We hooked up the DAT machine and inserted the tape with the delicacy of a surgeon, pressing play and praying that for one, the tape contained what we hoped, and two, that it didn’t chew it like a dog chewing on a bone. In amongst the hiss and crackle, the most monstrous 909 kick drum thudded. Daft Punk’s Drive track had been rediscovered. Playing through was Live Daft Punk; freaky vocals, pounding Roland drums & synths and that archetypal DP compression. After standing in silence, witnessing this moment, the track faded off and we heard the sound of the French spoken word that the recording had been made over; the remnants of their parents audio collection. The tape had originally been sent with Rollin’ and Scratchin’ to be released as Soma25. But Soma asked these two bright-eyed and Techno-bound Frenchman, to finish and send Da Funk to accompany Rollin’ and Scratchin’ and DRIVE was shelved for a later date...
Daft Punk – Drive Unreleased 1994 is track 1 on the Soma 20 Years compilation triple CD release, and is joined by selected Soma Records classics, including tracks by Slam, Silicone Soul, The Black Dog, Funk D’Void, Samuel L Session, Percy X and Desert Storm. CD 2 is a Slam DJ mix of the back-catalogue remixes we received in our twentieth anniversary. Remixers include Adam Beyer & Jesper Dahlback, Nick Curly, Mark Broom, D’Julz, Paul Ritch, Pan-Pot, Oxia ++++ all woven together by label bosses SLAM.
CD3 is an DJ Mix from Silicone Soul, Their DJ mix is a representation of the tracks they saw from the dancefloor, be it the first record they bought; Otaku’s (Ralph Lawson, Fraser Brydson & Carl Finlow) Percussion Obsession, or DJ Q’s masterful mix of Counter Plan’s 90 Degrees. Peppered through their mix are snippets and acapellas like the beautiful keys of Daedalus or the vocals from Inspiration and Light, Tonight, and U Dig. You’ll also see Mark Henning’s Last Night, a personal favourite of the boys from the last few years of Soma stock.

This will probably go one of two ways. We'll either get something that sounds like an early Da Funk or we'll get something like Beta Wax.
Great news either way.

We knew about the tape. Soma Records posted a picture of it and said nothing else. We assumed it was either some kind of an unreleased track or an unreleased mix. Thanks for clearing it up. Seems we forgot about it.

And that seals the deal. I've preordered the compilation.
There's an article floating about on the webz that has a description of the track by label head Chris Lamb:

I don't think I'll pre-order it but I would love to hear an unreleased track especially from that era.

Just got an idea. Could this possibly be one of the unknown songs in their early live shows? Like that song that has been credited as Rev. 909, but sounds nothing like it.

It's gonna be dope.
