The legendary Nile Rodgers released his insanely star-studded Chic album It’s About Time this fall. With more than 25 years since the collective’s last record, Rodgers’s collaborative spirit and boundless excitement for new music led him to put together the project which features Lady Gaga, Nao, Elton John, Craig David, Hailee Steinfeld, and a host of other hand-picked acts.
That’s why A.Side was so excited to have him play SHUFFLE for us. Although he is a brilliant, visionary musician who had a key hand in putting together hugely successful (and incredible) records for Madonna, Daft Punk, Duran Duran, and countless others, Nile Rodgers is a music lover whose energy and admiration for the sounds that make us dance explain why he’s been able to have such an epic and crucial career. Take a look at this episode of SHUFFLE and see what we’re talking about.
