Soma Records Celebrates 20 Years by Releasing Unreleased Daft Punk Demo

Particularly in the faddish realm of electronic dance music, 20 years is a long time for a label to maintain relevancy. Against the odds stands Glasgow's Soma Records, which has managed to maintain a consistently steady course with a number of heavy-hitting and era-defining releases under its belt. Celebrating its run—and with no intention of slowing down—the label is releasing Soma Records 20 Years, a three-CD compilation. Containing an impressive amount of material from the label's catalog—two DJ mixes and an unmixed retrospective—the release also marks the first time that Daft Punk's (pictured above) "Driving" will see official release. Found on a DAT tape deep in the archive, "Driving" was originally submitted to the label with "Rollin' and Scratchin" to be released as Soma25, but was shelved to make room for crowd favorite "Da Funk." Soma Records 20 Years drops September 19, but in the meantime you can check out the tracklist and album art below.
