How to Make Daft Punks Infamous ‘Da Funk’ Synth Sound

October 14, 2011 · Posted in Uncategorized 

“Da Funk” was initially released as a 12 inch single in 1995 under the Soma Quality Recordings label with the B-side “Rollin’ & Scratchin'” and again in late 1996 after the band signed with Virgin Records with the B-side “Musique”, a track that later appeared in the album Musique Vol. 1 1993-2005. In an interview with Fredrik Strage for swedish magazine Pop #23 Bangalter reveal that “Da Funk” was made after listening to Westcoast G-Funk for weeks.

“It was around the time Warren G.’s “Regulate” was released and we wanted to make some sort of gangsta-rap and tried to murk our sounds as much as possible. However no one has ever compared it to hip-hop. We’ve heard that the drums sounds like Queen and The Clash, the melody is reminiscent of Giorgio Moroder, and the synthesizers sound like electro and thousand of other comparisons. No one agree with us that it sounds like hip-hop”

In September 2010 Pitchfork Media included the song at number 18 on their Top 200 Tracks of the 90s
