Daft Punk Wallpaper
Daft Punk Wallpaper Description
Daft Punk Wallpaper are a French electronic music duo formed in Paris in 1993 by Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo and Thomas Bangalter. They achieved popularity in the late 1990s as part of the French house movement; they also had success in the years following, combining elements of house music with funk, techno, disco, rock and synthpop. They have worn ornate helmets and gloves to assume robot personas in most public appearances since 1999 and rarely grant interviews or appear on television. The duo were managed from 1996 to 2008 by Pedro Winter (also known as Busy P), the head of Ed Banger Records.
After Bangalter and Homem-Christo’s indie rock band Darlin’ disbanded, they began experimenting with drum machines and synthesisers. Their debut studio album Homework was released by Virgin Records in 1997 to positive reviews, backed by singles “Around the World” and “Da Funk”. Their second album, Discovery, had further success, supported by hit singles “One More Time”, “Digital Love” and “Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger”.
In March 2005, Daft Punk released their third album, Human After All, to mixed reviews, though the singles “Robot Rock” and “Technologic” achieved success in the United Kingdom. Daft Punk Wallpaper toured throughout 2006 and 2007 and released the live album Alive 2007, which won a Grammy Award for Best Electronic/Dance Album. They composed the score for the film Tron: Legacy, which was released in 2010 alongside its soundtrack album.
In 2013, Daft Punk Wallpaper left Virgin for Columbia Records, and released their fourth album, Random Access Memories, to acclaim; lead single “Get Lucky” reached the top 10 in the charts of 32 countries. Random Access Memories won five Grammy Awards in 2014, including Album of the Year and Record of the Year for “Get Lucky”. In 2016, Daft Punk gained their first number one on the Billboard Hot 100 with the song “Starboy”, a collaboration with The Weeknd. As of 2015, Daft Punk had sold over 12 million albums worldwide.
Daft Punk Wallpaper Influences
Bangalter and Homem-Christo have credited many sources that influenced their musical style. Bangalter recalled that the records motivated him to learn English as a second language, since he wanted to understand the lyrics. The duo’s mutual admiration for rock bands led to the founding of their own indie group called Darlin’. Bangalter explained: “It was still maybe more a teenage thing at that time. It’s like, you know, everybody wants to be in a band.” They also drew inspiration from the rock and acid house in the United Kingdom during the early 1990s. Homem-Christo referred to Screamadelica by Primal Scream as the record that “put everything together” in terms of genre”.
The liner notes of Homework pay tribute to a large number of musical artists and contain a quote from Brian Wilson. Bangalter stated: “In Brian Wilson’s music you could really feel the beauty—it was very spiritual. Like Bob Marley, too.” When questioned on the success of Daft Punk’s debut album and the rising popularity of their associated musical genre, Bangalter responded, “before us you had Frankie Knuckles or Juan Atkins and so on.
The least you can do is pay respect to those who are not known and who have influenced people.” The Daft Punk track “Teachers”, from Homework, refers to several influences, such as Romanthony and Todd Edwards. Homem-Christo stated: “Their music had a big effect on us.
The sound of their productions—the compression, the sound of the kick drum and Romanthony’s voice, the emotion and soul—is part of how we sound today.” A 2011 Bodytonic podcast featured tracks from all of the artists named in “Teachers”, the Brian Wilson speech quoted in the liner notes of Homework, and a Kraftwerk-like 1983 track produced by Daniel Vangarde, father of Bangalter.
Romanthony and Edwards later collaborated with Daft Punk on tracks for Discovery. For the album, Daft Punk Wallpaper focused on new styles of electronic music. A major inspiration was the Aphex Twin single “Windowlicker”, which was “neither a purely club track nor a very chilled-out, down-tempo relaxation track”, according to Bangalter. The duo also used vintage equipment to recreate the sound of an artist from a previous era. As stated by Homem-Christo, “On ‘Digital Love’ you get this Supertramp vibe on the bridge,” which was generated through an in-studio Wurlitzer piano.
During a later interview, Homem-Christo clarified that “we didn’t make a list of artists we like and copy their songs.” Daft Punk would collaborate with Edwards again on the song “Fragments of Time”, featured on the 2013 album Random Access Memories.
During a 2009 interview, Bangalter named Andy Warhol as one of Daft Punk’s early artistic influences. For the Tron: Legacy soundtrack, the duo drew inspiration from Wendy Carlos, the composer of the original Tron film, as well as Max Steiner, Bernard Herrmann, John Carpenter, Vangelis, Philip Glass and Maurice Jarre. Daft Punk Wallpaper later sought a “west coast vibe” during the production of Random Access Memories, referencing such bands as Fleetwood Mac, The Doobie Brothers and the Eagles. They also highlighted the influence of Jean Michel Jarre in an interview following the album’s release. In January 2017, London-based music publication FACTmag featured a 1000 track playlist of Daft Punk’s influences to mark the 20th anniversary of the release of Homework.
