Daft Punk is a fixture now, having been creating electronic and house music since the early ’90s. But in the early days, these two guys from France, Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo, could never have imagined that their music would strike a chord in the North American market.
Their 1995 release, Homework, was featured in a review of the Village Voice and DJs, like Terry Mullan, started playing their music. With influences like Andy Warhol, Vangelis and John Carpenter, Daft Punk‘s art and music is sure to continue to be innovative and evocative for a long time to come.
Take a listen to some of that early music and some new stuff here.
