Daft Punk Unveils Exclusive ‘Random Access Memories’ Studio Footage in the Second Episode of ‘Memory Tape,’ Featuring Chilly Gonzales.
Can you believe it’s already been 10 years since the innovative duo Daft Punk graced us with their fourth and final album, “Random Access Memories”?
These French masterminds, Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo, shook the world of electronic music when they joined forces back in 1993, fusing house music with funk, disco, techno, rock, and synth-pop. Talk about a genre-blending explosion of awesomeness!
Now, if you haven’t been living under a rock, you’d know that “Random Access Memories” is an absolute banger of an album that dropped in 2013. But wait, let’s not forget the other gems that the duo gave us throughout the years, like “Homework” in 1997, “Discovery” in 2001, and “Human After All” in 2005. These guys have been dropping eargasmic tunes all along!
To celebrate the mind-blowing success of “Random Access Memories” and ten years of musical bliss, Daft Punk has gifted us a marvelous docu-series on their YouTube channel, aptly named ‘Memory Tapes.’ And oh boy, it’s a nostalgic rollercoaster ride!
In the first episode, they invited the sensational Julian Casablancas, and it premiered on May 12th, 2023. Next up, they graced us with the presence of none other than Chilly Gonzales in the second episode, released on July 27th, 2023.

It’s an exclusive backstage pass with never-seen-before footage, taking you deep into the creative process behind “Random Access Memories.” Chilly Gonzales, the talented Canadian pianist, spills the beans on how he got involved with the dynamic duo. It all started with a meeting where Thomas and Guy-Manuel asked him to remix their track ‘Too Long’ from the sensational album ‘Discovery.’ Talk about a dream collaboration!
But wait, there’s more! Gonzales continued to work his magic on the track ‘Within,’ and in the docu-series, he shares his mind-blowing experience of meeting Daft Punk, working with them, and witnessing their musical brilliance firsthand. If you call yourself a Daft Punk fan, this docu-series is a mandatory watch – a nostalgic trip down memory lane!
Chilly Gonzales himself couldn’t hold back his excitement, saying, “Working with your heroes can so often turn out to be disappointing once it actually happens, but with Daft Punk, it far surpassed even my greatest expectations.” And we couldn’t agree more – what a musical journey it must have been!
