Daft Punk have admitted that they're always waiting for something new to come along to show that 'Daft Punk sucks'.
The French duo have been around for twenty years, and expected that the EDM scene would have come up with something good enough to make them irrelevant by now - but instead found the music derivative.
"It's always this thing where we're constantly waiting for something that will come in electronic music that says, 'Daft Punk sucks!'" says Thomas Bangalter, in an interview with GQ magazine. "That's actually much more interesting and exciting than someone who is paying homage."
He continued, "In Scream 2, they have this discussion about how sequels always suck. The thing we can ask ourselves at some point is like: We're making music for twenty years. How many bands and acts do you have that are still making good music after twenty years? It always sucks - almost always, you know?"
Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo added, "So our new album is supposed to really suck."
Daft Punk: Skrillex is at least trying to do something new in the scene
Bangalter also said that he respects Skrillex for trying to do something different, explaining, "Here's someone that is trying to create something new and to not follow something. There's an attempt, you know?"
However, De Homem-Christo said that he hasn't heard enough of Skrillex's music to make a judgement - although he did say that Solange's 'Losing You' was "good."
