It seems that Daft Punk and Skrillex will both be on Kanye West’s new album. Thomas Bangalter of Daft Punk told Rolling Stone that working with Kanye was “very raw…He was rapping – kind of screaming primally.” Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo, the other half of Daft Punk, also had something to say about Kanye’s “primal screaming” saying that “Kanye doesn’t give a fuck. He’s a good friend.” Sources say that Daft Punk have produced 2 tracks for Kanye’s new album. We also know that Skrillex has produced a track as well, telling The Daily Beast: “I did some music with Kanye and from what I know, it’s actually going to be the first song on his new album.” With dance music’s popularity skyrocketing there seems to be a frenzy of pop artists going after big name producers to help them make music, and I think we can all agree that Kanye won out with his collaborators on this album.
