In 2013, mastering engineer Antoine Chabert aka Chab put his fingers and ears to work on Daft Punk’s Random Access Memories. His mastering work earned him three Grammy Awards: Best Album, Best Recording and Best Sound. Ten years later, Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo have closed up shop, but that hasn’t stopped them from concocting the 10th-anniversary edition of their still influential album, enhanced by nine previously unreleased tracks.
