Nile Rodgers talks La Roux collaboration

In The Studio

La Roux

Having last year confessed her liking for “rare disco”, Elly Jackson of synth-pop duo La Roux has now struck a collaboration with the king of 1970s boogie himself, Nile Rodgers.

The Chic chieftain told all to the Daily Star, saying: “I totally fell in love with La Roux, it was just insane. I only work with people who are monsters, and I was impressed with how organic and cool Elly was. She’s in my cross-hairs right now. British artists have a stronger knowledge base of music, it’s always experimental”.

Details of Rodgers and La Roux’s duet is still to be specified, but it could well feature on the successor to Jackson and bandmate Ben Langmaid’s eponymous LP of 2009, if and when that’s ever announced.

As previously reported, Rodgers is also rumoured to have been working with Daft Punk on their new record. Though, as Daft Punk would have us believe, such a thing doesn’t even exist.
