*Daft Punk* are an electronic music duo consisting of French musicians
Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo and Thomas Bangalter.^[5]^[6]^[7]^[8] The two
achieved significant popularity in the late 1990s as part of the French
house movement and were met with continued success in the years following,
combining elements of house music with funk, techno, disco, rock, and
synthpop.^[2]^[6]^[7]^[9] They are also known for their visual stylization
and disguises associated with their music; specifically, the duo have worn
ornate helmets and gloves to assume robot personas in most of their public
appearances since 2001. They rarely grant interviews or appear on
television.

Bangalter and de Homem-Christo were originally in a rock band called
Darlin' together, which disbanded after a short period of time, leaving the
two to experiment musically with drum machines and synthesizers. The duo
became Daft Punk, releasing their debut album /Homework/ on Virgin Records
in 1997 to highly positive reviews. They were managed from 1996 to 2008 by
Pedro Winter (Busy P), the head of Ed Banger Records.^[10] The 2001 release
of /Discovery/ was even more successful, driven by the club singles "One
More Time", "Digital Love", and "Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger"
