Grammy-winning duo Daft Punk break up after 28 years


NEW YORK (AP) – Grammy-winning electronic music pioneer Daft Punk has announced his break-up after 28 years.

The French duo wearing a helmet shared the news Monday in an 8 minute video titled “Epilogue”. Kathryn Frazier, the band’s longtime publicist, confirmed the breakup for The Associated Press.

Daft Punk, consisting of Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo, has enjoyed major success over the years, winning six Grammy Awards and launching international hits with “One More Time ”,“ Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger ”and“ Get Lucky ”.

Bangalter and de Homem-Christo met at a Parisian school in 1987. Before Daft Punk, they formed an indie rock band called Darling.

They formally formed Daft Punk in 1993, and the helmeted, mute and mysterious musicians released their debut album, “Homework”, 1997. They first found success with the international hit “Da Funk”, which topped the Billboard dance charts and earned them their first Grammy nomination. A second No. 1 hit and a Grammy nomination followed with “Around the World”.

Daft Punk spent time touring the world and reached greater heights with their second album, 2001 “Discovery”. It included the infectious smash “One More Time ”and“ Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger, ”which Kanye West transformed into his own hit“ Stronger, ”released in 2007. He won West for Best Rap Solo Performance at the Grammy Awards at the 2008 concert, where West and Daft Punk performed together on stage.

A year later, a live version of “Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger” won Daft Punk Best Grammy Dance Recording – their first victory – and their album “Alive 2007” won Best Electronic / Dance Album.

But it was the 2014 Grammys where Daft Punk really took the limelight, winning Album of the Year for “Random Access Memories” and marking history as the first electronic act to win the Grammys highest honor. The duo won four awards that night, including the record of the year for their hit hit “Get Lucky,” starring Pharrell Williams and Nile Rodgers.

“Random Access Memories” was considered a genre album that stood out for its mix of live instruments, disco sounds, funk, rock, R&B and more. Rolling Stone ranked it No. 295 on its “500 Greatest Albums of All Time” list last year.
