    I bought this today and will scan it as soon as I head home!!!

    Here's a one liner from Guy at the end:

    Do you two know Moroder's "The Chase"? Did that already count as filter house?

    Thomas: Clearly. Moroder was 20 years ahead of us, with Trance and Techo. He had defined those sounds before they had a name.

    The filter is fast like in French House. What was that again?

    Thomas: It was a long, long time ago! It's blurred to me in the fogs of history. Let us try to remember: Disco loops in the sampler.

    Guy-Man: It was just filter: Waoh-waoh-waoh-waoh!

    Thomas: The tricks came from Chicago and Detroit. We liked it and attacked it head on, but we quickly got bored with it. Then came the journalists and named it French Touch.

    Guy-Man: French Fries.

    More to come.























    Alright here's the article and the review. I will translate it later, but atm I have to go to a meeting. Enjoy if you can read it right now haha.

    "In the early '90s, Daft Punk performed a self-styled synthesis of acid house, funk and big beat electronica at illegal warehouse parties in France that "you had to crawl under barbed wire and run from police" to attend, as Bangalter recalled.

    Daft Punk have been engaged for 5 years with their massive Studioalbum RAM. We met TB and GHdHM afterwards. In Paris, their natural environment, withouth their protective helmets for once.


    Daft Punk's headquarter is a tiny room in a former equestrian stable. You have to ring at the locked door, located between snack bars, the metal door raises like a rusty spaceship's ramp. Who makes it into the courtyard, will be greated by Thomas Bangalter, led up the wooden staircase and asked for secrecy. Daft Punk are regarded as myth with robot helmets. Bangalter, the human, looks just like on the pictures you can google. A thin man of 38 years, thin black hair on his head and around his mouth; he is wearing a tweed sakko acompanied by torn jeans and sneakers. Not everyone needs to know where the 'production suite' is situated, he says. This much can be revealed: Daft Punk produce right in the middle of Paris, at a boulevard that separates a long distance station from a public park, along the south bank of the Seine.
