Daft Punk, an influential electronics group, said it will withdraw after 28 years. The two announced their retirement in a video titled “Conclusion” on Monday morning.
The video contains a clip from the band’s 2006 film “Dian Yin” and a photo of their hands was taken under the title “1993-2021”. Daft Punk’s publicist Kathryn Frazier did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
The duo – Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo and Thomas Bangalter began to compose music together in character roles in 1993. They are known for their robot costumes and they began to appear in public in the 2000s.
“Da Funk” and their sophomore single “Around the World” earned the band its first two Grammy nominations. Since then, Daft Punk has been nominated for 12 Grammy Awards and won 6 championships.
In 2007, when Kanye West sampled the 2001 song “Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger” for his single “Stronger”, the band was revived.
Daft Punk’s 2014 album “Random Access Memories” was praised by critics and fans, which is a revival of electronic dance music. This album includes the top single “Get Lucky”, which includes singer and producer Pharrell Williams.
That year, the album won the Grammy of the Year, which made them the first electronic music to bring home the coveted honor.
So far, it is not clear whether Dehome Christo or Bengat will continue to play solo.
