Soma Records, the Scottish label of Slam founders Stuart McMillan and Orde Meikle are turning 20 this year. Celebrating with new releases, re-issues and a series of one-off events, one of the most exciting things to come out of their Celtic techno-bunker is the discovery of a previously unreleased Daft Punk song. Found on a DAT tape called ‘Daft Drive’ the song was submitted to Soma along with ‘Rollin and Scratchin’, but in the end ‘Da Funk’ was released by the label with ‘Drive’ being but in the back burner for later release which never happened… until now.
According to the label’s Chris Lamb, the music is “live Daft Punk, the freaky vocals, pounding Roland drums & synths and that distinctive DP compression”.
‘Daft Drive’ will be released digitally on Soma Records – 20 Years which is out September 19th. You can get more info over at Soma
