In 1998 Daft Punk's Thomas Bangalter formed the anonymous one-off disco project Stardust with studio buddies Alan Queme and Benjamin Cohen to record this nu-disco anthem. The song was released independently in Bangalter's native France on his own Roule label in 1998, and it took Ibiza by storm that summer and was the club smash of 1998. However, when Bangalter was offered a £3 million deal for a full Stardust album, he declined.
The bassline guitar is a sample from a Chaka Khan track "Fate," which appeared on her 1981 album, What Cha' Gonna Do For Me.
Despite rumors to the contrary, Bangalter insists in interviews that the suggestive lyrics are not about drugs.
