Here’s something I think not enough new Daft Punk fans are aware of. In September of 2011, a rare, just discovered and previously unreleased track was made public by Daft Punk’s original label, Soma.
It is called Drive.
While someone was going through old boxes in Soma storage, they found an old cassette tape labeled “Daft Drive”. Being very careful, they hooked it up, crossing their fingers that it was what they thought it was, and pressed play.
"In amongst the hiss and crackle, a monstrous 909 kick drum began to thud — Daft Punk’s Drive track had been rediscovered. Playing through was live Daft Punk: the freaky vocals, pounding Roland drums & synths and that distinctive DP compression. After standing in awed silence, witnessing this moment, the track faded off and we heard the sounds of French words 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 Frenchmen, to finish and send Da Funk instead and DRIVE was shelved for a later date." - Soma Official
An amazingly crazy Daft Punk track from 1994. Yep, this bad boy is Rollin’ and Scratchin’s long lost brother. This was the first ‘single’ they sent, after Alive and before Da Funk.
So enjoy this amazing this artifact of Daft Punk history. :)
