Thomas Bangalter of Daft Punk made an appearance earlier this month with the release of a portion of “Riga (Take 5)” via his former manager Busy P’s Ed Banger imprint. Now, the full-version of the track is here, spanning a stunning 14 minutes. The extended track appears to be an alternate version or his soundtrack for the 2017 Latvian film Riga (Take 1), which was nominated for Latvian Film Prize’s Best Score award in 2017.

With a slow build of hardware-heavy techno, alternating rhythms, deliberate sequencing, and filtered synths the esteemed sound engineer proves his worth while moving the sound in real time while recording. Earlier this year, Bangalter contributed a new song to Gaspar Noé’s Climax soundtrack, using his abilities in longer-form, visual content.

Ed Banger honors 15th birthday with orchestral album + tribute to DJ MehdiEd Banger 15 Ans

Ed Banger is celebrating its fifteenth birthday in the most ethereal of fashions. Known for its leadership in French electro and its unique aesthetic, the label is taking things down a notch for its commemorative 15 Ans LP, which is entirely orchestral. The upcoming album — set for a November 23 release — is an explorative one, reimagining 27 of the label’s most iconic records in a cinematic, instrumental form.

Those who know the label know there’s no shortage of incredible music housed within the Busy P-owned imprint. In addition to groundbreaking albums from Daft Punk themselves (formerly managed by Busy P) as well as Justice, countless other major league acts like Mr. Oizo, Breakbot, SebAstian, and more have continued to make new waves in their field. The aforementioned artists are featured heavily in the album, in addition Uffie’s “Pop The Glock,” “Jacques In The Box” by Laurent Garnier, and other newer releases from the label family.

DJ Mehdi, who passed away in 2011, is another key featured talent on 15 Ans. His famed “Pocket Piano” happened to be chosen by Busy P as the announcement piece for the LP, whose celebration concert took place earlier in the year.

Ed Banger Teases The Ultra Rare Unreleased 15-Minute Techno Track From Half Of Daft Punk

While it seems that Daft Punk will now be touring anytime soon (even though I will treat the Coachella line up dropping as a potential tour announcement again as I have for the last 12 years), the robots certainly haven’t stopped making music.

Daft Punk member Thomas Bangalter shows off acidic new techno recordDaft As Punk

Thomas Bangalter, best known as part of the near-mythical duo Daft Punk, has been inching his way into the film world. In spring 2018 he penned a song for a horror movie, and prior to that he’d played a brief cameo in 2015’s Reality. His latest work follows this path, and shows off his roots in the process.

Titled “Riga (Take 5),” the track immediately shows its connection to its film of Riga (Take 1). Ed Banger, Bangalter’s longtime label home and also the landing spot of this release, showed off a preview via blue vinyl on Instagram. Perhaps the thing that piques interest most, however, is the fact that the entire 14-minute song was recorded in one take. Based off the acidic sounds and gritty, industrial arrangement, one can guess that Riga (Take 1) is not going to be an uplifting watch.

The Weeknd and Daft Punk are being sued for allegedly stealing ‘Starboy’

The Weeknd and Daft Punk are being sued for allegedly stealing ‘Starboy’0 3

Daft Punk and The Weeknd are being accused of stealing the beat from their 2016 hit collaboration, Starboy,” which peaked at no. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 at the top of 2017. According to TMZ, poet, singer, and songwriter Yasminah claims her record “Hooyo” is the blueprint for the trio’s joint hit.

Yasminah states she released “Hooyo” in 2009, and of course, “Starboy” came to fruition seven years later. The similarities are obvious: same chorus, same key, same tempo, and same claps on beats two and four. With the “Starboy” rhythm seemingly an obvious rip of the originally, thousands of fans and onlookers are siding with Yasminah with this one.

Two of Yasminah’s producers have already threatened lawsuits over the song, but they never made it to court. She believes that The Weeknd, real name Abel Makkonen Tesfaye, only knew of her song because of his East African roots. While The Weeknd was born in Canada, both of his parents are of Ethiopian descent. Yasminah is now requesting her portion of those settlements, which clock in at over $5 million. The “Starboy” music video currently has amassed nearly 1.4 billion views. Listen to both tracks below and make the comparisons for yourself.
