The full, almost 15 minute rolling techno track “Riga Take 5” from Daft Punk’s Thomas Bangalter has surfaced online.

Ed Banger Records teased the track online earlier this month. This is taken from the soundtrack for the 2017 Latvian drama Riga (Take 1). Thomas Bangalter’s version was a part of a limited edition version of SIG’s Riga (Take 1) soundtrack.

The song itself has the feeling of early Daft Punk material in the mid-1990s that some fans probably got their start with the duo. Stretched out over nearly 15 minutes, Bangalter has a lot of space to work and keeps you drawn in as the song rolls and evolves over that time.
