Biography

Paris, France (1994 – present)

Daft Punk is a multi Grammy Award-winning music duo formed in 1994 in Paris, France, and consisting of French musicians Thomas Bangalter (born 3 January 1975) and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo (born 8 February 1974). The band is considered one of the most successful electronic music collaborations of all time, both in album sales and in critical acclaim.

Daft Punk reached significant popularity in the late movement in France, along with other artists such as Air, Cassius, and Dimitri From Paris. Daft Punk are credited with producing songs that were considered essential in the French house scene. They were managed from 1996 to 2008 by Pedro Winter (Busy P), the head of Ed Banger Records.

The group released four studio albums: Homework (1997), Discovery (2001), Human After All (2005), and Random Access Memories (2013). They also released the soundtrack album TRON: Legacy (2010); the live albums Alive 1997 (2002), Alive 2007 (2007); the compilation Musique Vol. 1 1993–2005 (2006); the remix albums Daft Club (2003), Human After All: Remixes (2006), TRON: Legacy Reconfigured (2011).


Early years (1987–1993)

Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo met in 1987 on the grounds of the Lycée Carnot, a secondary school in Paris. The two became good friends and later recorded demo tracks with others from the school. This eventually led to the formation of the guitar-based group Darlin’ with Laurent Brancowitz in 1992.

    I love Daft Punk's old music! Don't really like their new album though.

    People seem to have a maximalist approach to perceiving extremely popular artists: they either idolize them or attempt to unmask the allegedly hidden mediocrity. Either way, very few listeners are capable of hearing what they really think about this or that pop icon because of the deafening noise of everyone else's opinion.

    скажем им спасибо за привнесение некоторых хороших идей в мейнстрим, но слушать особо не будем.
