Yesterday (22nd February), Daft Punk announced they have split up after 28 years.
The French duo's ability to constantly reinvent electronic music, time and again, makes them one of the most important electronic acts after Kraftwerk.
Haivng formed in Paris in 1993, their debut album, 'Homework', was released in 1997, featuring hit singles including 'Around the World' and 'Da Funk'. Their follow up, ‘Discovery’, is seen by many as one of the most important dance music releases of this — or any — era, a record that anticipated the digital music age, the pivotal importance of video content and the growth of the online fan club. Their most recent album, 'Random Access Memories', was the best-selling dance music album on vinyl of the decade.
