Published Apr 11, 2013Daft Punk recently launched a video series called Random Access Memories: The Collaborators that features chats with artists involved with the duo's Random Access Memories, and they've now dropped the third instalment, featuring Chic's Nile Rodgers.
"Where I come from, groove is everything. Groove is something that's rewarding on a spiritual level," Rodgers notes early on before discussing the magic of Donna Summer, his love for jazz fusion, and how both he and Daft Punk have evolved.
"On Random Access Memories I wanted to be Nile, but I wanted to be a new Nile," he said, adding of his collaborators. "The robots, as artists, have evolved." Following that, Rodgers gives us a taste of what to come by playing a funky guitar lick on a track that the interviewer feels will be "the song of the summer."

Random Access Memories will come out on May 21 via Columbia Records imprint Daft Life Limited.
