Daft Punk producer makes appearance on new Travis Scott album

Home Uncategorized Daft Punk producer makes appearance on new Travis Scott album

When the robots of Daft Punk announced that they would be hanging up their helmets and disbanding back in 2021, fans and fellow musicians around the globe mourned the end of the duo while wondering what projects the two men behind the masks would take on next. In between a plethora of archival material and remastered releases, fans are finally getting to hear some new sounds from Guy Manuel de Homem-Christo.

Back in 2013, before the red hats and strange rants on Alex Jones’ broadcast, Kanye West released Yeezus, a bold departure for the rapper, and an album that left much of the hip-hop community unsure of what to make of the new release. Contributing to the production of that album were the members of Daft Punk, providing a dark edge and energy that felt like it was crafted in another dimension. Fast forward a decade later and Guy Manuel de Homem-Christo has popped up on the new track MODERN JAM, featured on Travis Scott’s fourth album, UTOPIA. Any fan of Yeezus will certainly hear the similarities, tones, and even use of screams in crafting the new single for Scott and recognize that the influence of Guy-Man must be at work once again.

While fans of Daft Punk may not be too excited with the two members’ musical journeys since their announcement to part ways, Thomas Bangalter returned to his classical music roots, releasing a beautiful symphony of sounds that was inspired by a modern-day ballet, and Guy-Man producing just one track on the new Travis Scott release. While the Travis Scott is a strong release, full of incredible productions and raps, it is the work and influence of the former Daft Punk member that allows MODERN JAM to stand out, a reminder that even though he is no longer officially a robot, his style and work is still lightyears ahead of everyone else.
