Daft Punk consists of
Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo and Thomas Bangalter
and hail from France. The duo met while in their
teens and began recording demos before joining a
group named 'Darlin'. When the group broke, the
duo became 'Daft Punk' and worked on their love
of house music and experimental technologies
incorporated into their music. Daft Punk's
appearance in robot masks developed first from
shyness and then to represent the merging of
humans and machines.
