Published Nov 02, 2012Since there's still no word on when French Touch duo Daft Punk are releasing their apparently guest-heavy follow-up to the Tron: Legacy soundtrack, now is as a good a time as any to focus on the band members' back catalogues. Specifically, Thomas Bangalter is revisiting his early days via a reissue of his 1995 solo EP, Trax On Da Rocks.
The five-song set was originally pressed on 12-inch wax via the Roulé imprint, but this new edition is now offered up through Phonica Records, FACT points out. A quick statement from the label describes the EP as "5 tracks of brilliance that still stand the test of time," which bounces from the electro-disco of the title track, to the jungle breakbeat-imbued "What to Do," to techno tune "Roule Boule." You can check out the record's "Outrun" in the player down below.
Trax On Da Rocks Vol. 2 followed in 1998, but it's unclear at present if that EP will also be treated to a reissue.
In other recent Bangalter-related news, you might remember that the electronic musician recently scored Lindsay Lohan's surfing short film First Point.
