Daft Punk, the Parisian duo responsible for some of the most popular dance music of all time, have announced their split.
The French group, Daft Punk, whose music has touched millions has announced their split. The masked pair broke the news with an 8-minute video titled “Epilogue,” which was excerpted from their 2006 film Electroma. Kathryn Frazier who has worked with the group as their publicist for many years, confirmed the news to Pitchfork, but has not elaborated on the news or provided any reason for the breakup.
Daft Punk has been a mainstay of dance music since their founding. In Attack Magazine we’ve covered their music in various tutorials over the years. It’s always been hard to overstate their importance. For example, Daft Punk – Da Funk remains one of our most popular tutorials.
Daft Punk formed in 1993 out of the French house scene. It was their debut album, Homework, released in 1997 that became a dance music classic with “Around the World” and “Da Funk” dominating the airwaves and dancefloors. A few years later, they took on the robot oufit appearances that supported releases such as “One More Time” and “Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger”.
In more recent times, their appeal was further enhanced to pop audiences with “Get Lucky” an infectious single from their 2013 Random Access Memory album. Get Lucky was made in collaboration with Pharell Williams and Nile Rodgers and bagged them two Grammys. As recently as 2019, the group had produced Starboy for The Weekend.
