Charli XCX featuring on Mr Oizo’s latest release isn’t the only interesting thing happening on the Frenchman’s latest EP.
While her inclusion is a welcome one for sure, it’s actually one of the b-sides, ‘Rekurd’, which has peaked a lot of interest on various Daft Punk forums, who are feverishly guessing whose voice is used on the track, ‘Rekurd’.
Apparently, it’s Thomas Bangalter of Daft Punk fame.
Proof of which comes from a interview with Zane Lowe where T-bang says the word “rekurd” about 8 billions times.
T-bang also featured in one of Oizo’s films recently, so the thought of Oizo sampling his close friend doesn’t seem all that far fetched, and it just happens that the EP was recorded in LA, where T-Bang lives with his family.
The Frenchman’s latest release is as zany as they come but that’s why we like it, sometimes we need a bit of zany in our lives, and Mr Oizo always delivers zaniest music imaginable.
Check out the full EP and listen out for Thomas Bangalter’s potential cameo too.
