Daft Life (2022) EU
Generally regarded as one of the most influential dance music albums of the '90s, Daft Punk's landmark 1997 debut Homework showcases an innovative synthesis of techno, house, acid house and electro styles amidst tracks that consistently engage the listener with rhythmically ambitious peaks and valleys. Featuring the acclaimed hit singles "Around the World" and "Da Funk" which were both nominated for Grammy Awards for 'Best Dance Recording', Homework offers a rewarding and groundbreaking early glimpse at a group who subsequently became the biggest electronic act in the world.
"Daft Punk's debut is pure synapse-tweaking brilliance. In the Nineties, when artists like the Chemical Brothers and Fatboy Slim were bringing in guest-star vocalists and sampling rock records, and ad executives were strip-mining club beats, French duo Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo proved that techno and house could be as elastic, catchy and, at times, as funny as the poppiest pop without diluting its hypnotically driving, acidic essence." - No. 1 on Rolling Stone's list of 'The 30 Greatest EDM Albums Of All Time'
