Overview

Thomas (Left) and Guy-Manuel (Right)

Daft Punk are a electronic music duo originating from Paris, France consisting of Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo and Thomas Bangalter. Daft Punk are one of the key artists in the French House genre and gained popularity during the 90s and 2000s with their release of Homework and Discovery in 1997 and 2001 respectively. They have continued to produce music since then having released a total of three studio albums and toured a number of times.

This along with their robotic suits and generally shy attitude towards interviewers have given them a unique persona.

They appeared in video game form for the first time officially with the release of DJ Hero in 2009 providing a number of 'megamixes' similar to their live shows. They also composed the soundtrack for the Tron: Legacy film, from which two tracks ("Derezzed" and "The Grid") appear in Tron: Evolution.
