Daft Punk have Split up

Share

Not the announcement we were expecting today but Daft Punk have split up.

The Parisian duo broke the news with an 8-minute video titled “Epilogue,” excerpted from their 2006 film Electroma. Asked if Daft Punk were no more, their longtime publicist Kathryn Frazier confirmed the news to Pitchfork but gave no reason for the breakup.

Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo formed Daft Punk in Paris in 1993. Since then they have released dance music history by releasing four highly influential albums – ‘Homework’, ‘Discover’, ‘Human After All’ and ‘Random Access Memories’ – as well as two live albums between 1996 and 2007.

The last album in 2013’s ‘Random Access Memories’ moved them away from dance floors, the lead single sold millions of copies around the world and won two Grammys for the duo and guests Nile Rodgers and Pharrell Williams.

Watch their farewell video below.

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
