Daniel Vangarde – Who’s Who

Artist: Daniel Vangarde
Album: Who’s Who
Release: 1979
Genre: Disco

You’ve probably never heard of the artist or the album: he was cool before being unknown and cool was cool.
Daniel Vangarde is actually Daniel Bangalter, father of Daft Punk‘s Thomas Bangalter, and writer and producer of that song “D.I.S.C.O.”
Don’t let that put you off though, this album is nowhere near cheese. It almost feels like an album of b-sides, an album wherein Daft Punk’s dad is telling stories about the good old days. Good old days indeed.
Check out Hypno Dance and Ad Libitum for the sounds of sedated disco floors.

Rating: 8/10
