With the founding of Daft Punk in 1993, Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo helped house music gain a French character. Their debut album "Homework" (1997) with the hits "Around the World" and "Da Funk" was very successful, with their successor "Discovery" the duo already wore their trademark, the robot suits.

With "Get Lucky", the single from their 2013 album "Random Access Memories", Daft Punk celebrated great success 20 years after their founding. Millions of copies of the single were sold worldwide, and there were two Grammys for the DJ duo and guest stars Nile Rodgers and Pharrell Williams. The follow-up single "Lose Yourself to Dance", again with Williams, received several awards. Random Access Memories is the last album by Daft Punk so far.
