Soma Records Unearth Lost Daft Punk Material On New Compilation
Soma Records explain the discovery with the following statement [via 107.7 The End]:
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…
The unreleased Daft Punk material from 1994 will open Soma's 20 Years compilation, a triple-CD set that will drop September 19. The album can be pre-ordered here, with a full tracklisting available below.
