A track hurled into the, er, ‘blogosphere on Valentine’s Day – allegedly a new recording from Daft Punk’s Thomas Bangalter – has been exposed as a hoax.
‘Love’ was posted in the comments section of a number of ‘blogs last Thursday (14 Feb), claiming to be from an address registered at Daft Punk’s website, with the poster leaving only the initials ‘TB’ as a calling card.
Word spread pretty rapidly across the internet, with many speculating on the producer of 'Love' until the Trash Menagerie ‘blog volleyed off an email to the near-legendary French house band’s management and all was cleared up.
“It’s of course not a new track from daft punk,” read the response from Pedro Winter, AKA Ed Banger boss Busy P.
“It sounds really cheap…”.
Catty, though we’re sure the track’s real owner is none-too-bothered – ‘Louis La Roche’ is, apparently, the anonymous alter-ego of a well-known English producer.
Erol Alkan? Hot Chip’s Joe Goddard? Paul Epworth? What d’YOU reckon? Either way, a shit ton more people have now heard his track. You can too, at Louis La Roche’s MySpace.
