With collaborations with the likes of David Bowie, Duran Duran, Aretha Franklin and Betty Wright already under his belt, Nile Rodgers — the famous composer, producer and guitarist — recently spoke about his collaboration with the popular French duo Daft Punk, calling it his best work since teaming up with Madonna.
“All I can say is those guys are geniuses and to think that after all these years we’ve been trying to get together, they just show up at my apartment in New York City and the vibe between us is so powerful and so strong – it’s unbelievable,” Rodgers told Mixmag.
The Chic musician ranked his work with the Parisian electronic outfit among the finest of his four decade-long career, rivaling collaborations with Grace Jones and Diana Ross.
“Spiritually and artistically, working with them was as good as anything I’ve ever done,” he said. “It’s as great as being in a studio with Bowie, it’s as great as being with Bernard Edwards, and it’s as great as the best stuff I’ve ever done with [Duran] Duran and Madonna.”
Daft Punk are prepping the release of their first studio album since 2005′s Human After All, which will be their first project since the 2010 Tron: Legacy soundtrack.
The 59-year-old Rodgers is currently working with La Roux on their upcoming sophomore effort.
