In 1998, Stardust was teaching us that the ‘Music Sounds Better with You’ and The Tamperer was asking ‘What’s she gonna look like with a chimney on her?’. By 2005, Madonna was mining “filter disco” to death with her album Confessions on a Dance Floor and its lead single ‘Hung Up’. But in between, Modjo, Roger Sanchez and Daft Punk refined the perfect filter sound. In fact, the Daft Punk’s Bangalter was part of the Stardust project which helped establish this hybrid of dance music. Using a muffled sound, seemingly recorded underwater, production would layer it with disco loops over and over until boom, a surge of bass would appear. There is no better example of this than 2001’s Daft Punk’s ‘Digital Love’. The nods to ELO & Buggles help of course. Veridis Quo!
