The brains behind some of the most influential dance tracks of all time, Daft Punk have announced their retirement.
The Daft Punk French electronic music duo formed in 1993 in Paris by Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo and Thomas Bangalter have announced their retirement after nearly 30 years.
The talented duo did not just announce their retirement, but did it in a grand style, through typically-enigmatic video, titled Epilogue.
It was a remarkable retirement as the clip had musicians, Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo, dressed in their iconic robot costumes, bid each other farewell in the desert, before one of them self-destructed.
BBC confirmed the split from the band’s longtime publicist.
On their feat, the group brought the French underground house scene into the charts with hits like One More Time, Da Funk and Around The World.
Their profile won’t also be complete without talking about their debut album, Homework, which is is considered a landmark in dance music;
They also scored a worldwide hit in 2013 with the retro-disco single Get Lucky, featuring Pharrell Williams and Nile Rodgers.
On awards, it has been recorded that Random Access Memories, a song which was taken from their most recent record, won the Grammy for album of the year in 2014.
Since then, the band has kept a relatively low profile – although they collaborated with R&B star The Weekend on two tracks, Star boy and I Feel It Coming, in 2016.
