Together with singer The Weeknd, Daft Punk celebrated two of their most commercially successful hits in 2016 with the songs “I Feel It Coming” and “Starboy”. In an Instagram story, the musician wrote under a joint picture collage with the artists: “Thankful to have been part of the trip” and recalled the mutual success with a series of photos and quotes. Working with Daft Punk was a lifelong dream come true for him, he said in one of the stories.
Pharrell Williams, who among other things created the mega hit “Get Lucky” with the duo, described Daft Punk briefly on Twitter as “legends forever”. Music producer Mark Ronson (45), however, remembered on Twitter when he and Bruno Mars (35) lost the Grammy for “Locked Out of Heaven” to Daft Punk and Williams with “Get Lucky”: “I remember when those beautiful French robots got lucky and locked us out of the sky all evening at the 2013 Grammys. I couldn’t be mad about it for even three minutes. ” For Ronson, her musical legacy is “in an impossible way inviolable”.
Daft Punk has inspired numerous successful DJs
The EDM scene in particular mourns the separation of the electro duo. For example, the Swedish DJ Alesso tweeted: “Thank you, Daft Punk, for everything! We will miss you Legends”. Dutchman Don Diablo thanked the band for inspiring him as a child to make electronic music. Music producer Porter Robinson, who has also worked with stars like Lady Gaga, also owes his musical career to the French and discovered them at the age of eleven: “I’m just thinking about how every stage of my life would have been very different if it had been wouldn’t have given Daft Punk. ”
Daft Punk, consisting of Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo (47) and Thomas Bangalter (46), has existed since 1993. In the course of their career, the duo has received seven Grammys, among others.
