Daniel Vangarde, Father Of Daft Punk’s Thomas Bangalter, Is Releasing A Compilation Album

Despite officially breaking up last February, Daft Punk is still keeping music in the family. Thomas Bangalter’s dad, Daniel Vangarde, has announced he’s releasing an archival compilation album.

On November 25, the French disco pioneer will release The Vaults of Zagora Records Mastermind (1971-1984) via Because Music. The compilation will feature a catalog of Vangarde’s work including his collaborations with the likes of Starbow, Who’s Who, Amii Stewart, and more.

Daniel Vangarde is a legend in his own right, co-writing and producing French disco hits including Ottowan’s “D.I.S.C.O.” as well as founding the record label Zagora in 1975, and releasing music under several aliases including Who’s Who.

The Daft Punk news also keeps coming as Thomas Bangalter was revealed to be working with Phoenix on their new album Alpha Zulu. The legendary producer first collaborated with Phoenix back in 2000 when he played the synth on their track “Embuscade.”

The band’s frontman, Thomas Mars, told Stereogum about the collaboration, “The mixer played an important part on this one, and Thomas [Bangalter] from Daft Punk came a few times to help us out.”

Check out Daniel Vangarde’s 1979 co-produced track with Ottawan “D.I.S.C.O” below:
