The title of the compilation refers to the name of the Zagora record label, founded by Vangarde in 1975.

Vangarde has released music under various names, including Who’s Who, music from which will also be included in the upcoming compilation.

Meanwhile, last year Daft Punk announced the breakup after 28 years.

The Parisian duo, who are considered one of the most influential electronic music artists of all time, confirmed the news in an eight-minute video titled “Epilogue”, which features footage from their 2006 sci-fi film “Electroma”.

In the clip, the duo — Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Cristo — walks through the desert in their recognizable space helmets and leather jackets.

After the news of their breakup appeared, the duo launched an official account in TikTok.

TikTok users can now access music from the band’s back catalog for use in their videos. The band has retained the rights to their material since the 1990s.
