Omar Hakim on Daft Punk's 'Random Access Memories'

Thomas Bangalter on drummer Omar Hakim's playing on the second half of Daft Punk's "Giorgio by Moroder" on Random Access Memories: "I remember going to him and humming this really complicated drum and bass programming and he's like, 'Like this?' [makes drum noises] He's doing it exactly like I hummed but like 10 times beyond. It felt like, 'Whoa! What have we been missing being limited by our own programming skills?' He probably only did two takes for that part."

You can also hear Omar on "Touch", "Get Lucky", "Beyond", "Motherboard", and "Contact".
