Virgin Radio France will be featuring Daft Punk this Friday from 20-21h (8 to 9 PM for all the Americans), where not only will they be dropping an exclusive playlist, but also TAKING REQUESTS. I had to both pinch myself and call every French-speaker I know to confirm that I wasn’t dreaming. But after piecing everything together, we’ve concluded that this is legit. It’s quite unbelievable, seeing as Daft Punk has taken approximately zero requests in their 25 year history. Someone needs to get a raise at Virgin Radio France for this, and if it’s a joke, how do you say “tar & feathered” in French? Below is a super rare recording of Daft Punk’s mix for Louie Vuitton’s Spring 2008 show, which is 16 minutes of mixing that you probably have never heard before, even if you’re a varsity Daft Punk fan like myself. Rock it out and don’t forget to mark your calendars/adjust for whatever time zone you’re in and tune to this Friday to stream the playlist LIVE on air right here!
