Daft Punk are a french electronic music duo consisting of producers Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo and Thomas Bangalter.

The two achieved significant popularity in the late 1990s as part of the French house movement and were met with continuous success in the years following, combining elements of house music with funk, techno, disco, rock, and synthpop. Their song ‘Get Lucky’ released in 2013 is on every dance floor in the world today, but even before that, Daft Punk had already delivered some sensational dance anthems.

The duo are also known for their visual stylization and disguises associated with their music; specifically, the duo have worn ornate helmets and gloves to assume robot personas in most of their public appearances since 2001. The year 2003 saw the release of the feature-length animated film, ‘Interstella 5555: The 5tory of the 5ecret 5tar 5ystem’. Daft Punk produced the film under the supervision of Leiji Matsumoto, a well-known creator of several Japanese anime and manga series.
