Hearing "Da Funk" from my "The Saint" soundtrack got me hooked up with this French duo of Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo and Thomas Bangalter.
Daft Punk were the ones responsible for bringing French house to mainstream dance music with hits like "Da Funk", "Around The World," "One More Time," "Aerodynamic," and "Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger," which was also sampled by Kanye West on his 2007 hit "Stronger."
What I like about the duo is their ability to combine different musical styles and sounds, thus making their music distinct from other electronic acts. An example of this was the heavy use of electric guitars with their song "Aerodynamic."
They also produce interesting music videos to accompany their songs. Here's a sample of one of my favorite vids, "old school anime" style, called "Digital Love."
1) Aerodynamic (Album Version)
2) Crescendolls (Album Version)
3) Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger (Deadmau5 Edit)
4) Digital Love (Boris Dlugosh Remix)
5) One More Time (DJ Antoine Remix)
6) High Life (Album Version)
7) Around The World (Beat Gate Remix)
8) Technologic (BuddhaBuser Remix)
Let's hear it again, one more time...
