Spotify's head of editorial Rob Fitzpatrick speaks to the legendary Nile Rodgers. In this rare one-on-one session, Nile will discuss the creative process and, with the help of his Hitmaker guitar, musically illustrate his life as composer, producer, arranger and artist.
As the co-founder of CHIC, Rodgers pioneered a musical language that sparked the advent of hip-hop with "Good Times" and distinguished CHIC as the "most sampled band in history". His career-defining productions for artists like David Bowie, Madonna and Diana Ross has earned him more than 200 million albums and 50 million singles sold worldwide. As a cultural icon and music innovator with 200+ production credits to his name, Nile Rodgers transcends all styles of music across every generation.
Currently signed to Warner Bros. Records, Rodgers released his first new CHIC single, "I'll Be There" in almost 25 years on 20th March 2015. The new CHIC record will be released this summer.
