The way they make modern disco music, a perfect blend of funk, techno, and electro sounds, Daft Punk remains to be one of the most popular and respected music acts today. You would see Guy Manuel de Homem-Christo and Thomas Bangalter dressed up in shimmering costumes while performing live on different shows, just for fun, but their songs were amazingly beautiful.Daft Punk’s Humble Beginnings
These two great men first met in the late 80s in Paris and eventually teamed up to form an indie rock band called Darling. But the group did not succeed, but there was one song that gave the duo the name of their new project, “A Bunch of Daft Punk”. Even if their initial projects went nowhere, they have discovered their love and passion in house music. Soon after, they released a single called “Da Funk”, and finally, it has sold more than 30,000 copies and everything else was history.
After getting too much attention of the press, Daft Punk signed a contract to Virgin Records. The dynamic duo released “Homework”. With the use of some modern videos, it went gold in USA. In between, Bangalter also recorded both under his real name and as Stardust, who had hit in the late 90s with the song entitled, “Music Sounds Better with You”. It was in 2001 when Daft Punk returned with Discovery. It was a really good album that touches different genres like R&B, found noises, synths, house beats, and more. Most of their songs hit the dance play charts in America.Newest Success Stories of Daft Punk
Not all of their works were big hits, but all are good enough to keep them in the business. The duo throughout the 200s was privileged enough to perform with Kanye West at the 2008 Grammy awards night. Bangalter and de Homem Christo, who frequently played in front of a huge crowd with lights turning on and off, has brought back to life the intensity of fun and intense music, especially on their medley of "Human After All", "Superheroes," and "Rock 'N' Roll."
The team has contributed new mixes, at least 11, to the 2009 video game DJ Hero. Players are having fun performing as Daft Punk, inhabiting their strikingly good costumes. A few months after, it was reported that their success in contributing have already doubled. They have recorded two dozens of songs for the film Tron: Legacy, which was shown in 2011.
