Watch Nile Rodgers Explain His Introduction to Daft Punk and How “Get Lucky” Came to Be –

In a new video produced by Fender, iconic record producer and guitarist Nile Rodgers recounts Daft Punk‘s collaborative pitch: “They wanted to do a record as if the Internet never existed.”

That concept alone was music to the classically trained musician’s ears. So much so that when Daft Punk’s Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo and Thomas Bangalter immediately tried to follow up their pitch by playing Rodgers some demos, he declined.

“I don’t want to hear demos. I make records on the spot,” Rodgers said of his approach at the time. “As a studio musician I make records on the spot. I don’t know what song I’m going to play before I get there, but when I get there what I try and do is try and come up with the most clever part as quickly as possible.”
