The flagship French electro duo Daft Punk, created in 1993, has ended their collaboration, their press secretary confirmed to AFP on Monday, after the publication of a video on YouTube.

Entitled “Epilogue”, the eight-minute video takes up scenes from their 2006 film Electrorama and features the duo Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem Christo, in the guise of two robots, in the desert. The tension peaks until the explosion of one of the two robots, before a “1993-2021” appears on the screen.

Pioneers of the French Touch

Formed in Paris in 1993 by Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo, Daft Punk quickly established themselves as the pioneers of the French Touch with the release of their first album Homework in 1997. The disc notably includes their first hit ” Around the world ”, which allows them to acquire international notoriety.

For their name, they simply took the qualifier used by a well-respected British magazine about the first single from their previous group Darlin ‘: “daft punk” (“silly punk”).

Four years later, their second album “Discovery” recycles the 80s, pop and disco. Carried by the inexhaustible “One More Time” or “Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger”, the album is a success. Often imitated, he shaped the music of the early 2000s.

Darker, their third opus “Human after all” (2005) will however be a critical and commercial failure. Their last album, “Random Access Memories”, dates from 2013. The single “Get Lucky”, duet with Pharrell Williams, became the planetary hit of 2013.

Cultivate the mystery

From their beginnings, the two French people have made marketing an integrated component of their creative process, with a simple idea: to cultivate rarity and mystery. Daft Punk never show their faces, go little on television and release few records.

As a result, each of their appearance is an event and their robot helmets have become an immediately identifiable brand.
