Daft Punk is a popular electronic music duo known for their catchy disco-influenced house music, processed vocals, and signature robot disguises.

Daft Punk consists of members Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo and Thomas Bengaltor, two Parisians who discovered a unique blend of first-wave acid house and techno with pop, indie rock, and hip-hop. Beginning together as the indie cover band Darling, their name derives from a review which described a lo-fi cover of a Beach Boys song as “daft punk.” The newly dubbed Daft Punk released their debut single, “The New Wave,” in 1993, and were immediately praised by the dance music critics as innovators of house music. The follow-up, “Da Funk” was the group’s first real hit, with 30,000 copies sold worldwide.

By 1996, labels were fighting over Daft Punk, despite having only released three singles. They finally signed with Virgin, and released Homework early in 1997, a riotous mashup of progressive house, funk, electro, techno, and hip-hop. The group waited four years to release a follow-up, but 2001’s Discovery was not a disappointment. Neither were the subsequent albums: Alive 1997, Human After All, and Alive 2007, which won a Grammy for “Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger.” In 2010, Daft Punk also composed the soundtrack to Tron: Legacy, the sequel to 1982’s classic film Tron.

In 2013, Daft Punk released the album Random Access Memories, along with the single “Get Lucky,” which became the group’s most successful song. The album won three Grammys for Best Dance/Electronica Album, Album of the Year, and Best Engineered Album, and “Get Lucky” won for Best Pop Duo/Group Perfomance as well as Record of the Year. The next year, Daft Punk collaborated Pharell on G I R L and with Jay-Z on the song “Computerized.” Most recently, the group worked with the Weeknd to produce some of the songs on his 2016, album Starboy.

Daft Punk currently performs shows regularly, and is often booked for corporate entertainment events and private parties.
